Roughly four years ago, I was pondering a career change from Graphic Designer (which doesn't pay well and has very few job openings) to Accountant (which does pay well, and seemed to have plenty of jobs), and inquired about it here in the GRS forums. My original post was titles "What Sort of Jo...

1) I have over a year's worth of living expenses in my Emergency Fund. 2) Took about 6 years of saving to get it. 3) I stay motivated because I'm TERRIFIED of ending up homeless. I make very little money as a freelancer artist/designer and haven't been able to find full-time work for a good six year...

In my earlier years as a Graphic Designer, the only way I could even get a pay raise was to leave for another job. Started out at Frontline Records: 8.00/hr I was allowed ONE raise there (to 8.50/hr), then they claimed they didn't have any more money for raises. They went out of business a year or s...

... Brenda, I'm not convinced you have any evidence that the person who hit you was in the country illegally. I'd love to hear which STATUTE illegal immigrants are violating to make it a federal crime. Because I'm unable to find one...but that does not mean much. But everyone accused of a crime in ...

People don't DO that unless they're hiding something I hate to break it to you, but yes they do. There is a certain small part of any population that just does not give a crap about you, and will do whatever is solely in their own best interest. These people come from all different races and backgr...

And how did you know he was illegal? Or were you just assuming that since he was a brown-skinned Spanish speaker he was not properly documented and authorized to be in the United States? Because I've been hit exactly four times in my life, none of them my fault. Hit #1) A guy in Brat Pickup with a ...

I think we are seeing a trend in society in general to excuse people for bad behavior just because their vice is readily available. It clearly is a complete abandonment of the concept that people should be held accountable for their own behavior. As soon as we start believing people are not respons...

Boycott? I want to go live in Arizona now, and support them for having the guts to stand up against criminals, when the Feds have just been ignoring them. I've lived in the Southwest most of my life, and I'm tired of the drug smuggling, murder and crimes that are often brought on by illegals immigra...

Parents add to this problem too, by having this attitude of "I love my daughter and I support her in whatever she wants to study"...this attitude some parents have is very damaging to their children. It would be far better for parents tell their college aged children that they will not fu...

I've been using Quicken since 1998. It's easy, quick, and does everything I need it to.

Wait, you're kidding right? 100,000 NET CASH per year, every year, is not super rich? Sorry, Brenda, I agree with the others. $100,000/year is definitely not "super rich." It's not even plain old "rich." I'd say it's solidly middle-class, maybe upper-middle-class. It's not as ea...

Brenda: I understand how that may seem like a lot to you but $200000 income is not super rich. Remember that the government takes about half of it after all the taxes. The remaining $100000 a year makes for a comfortable life but it is hardly super rich. Wait, you're kidding right? 100,000 NET CASH...

YIKES. They spend $1,200 a month EATING OUT? My entirely monthly gross paycheck is way less than just their 'eating out money'. Good grief, for as much money as they're blowing, paying off a $30,000 debt in one year oughtta be easy for them, because they obviously make a ton of money. That said, put...

I know a bit how you feel, its been a crazy year for us as well. We basically realized we were on a dead end path, and we need to kind of start over. I am in the process of applying for a program which starts in Fall, its by no means a guarantee that I will get in, but I guess we will cross that br...
