Dear Young Future Movers:
Wanna move out? Not so fast you fucking retard.
So I have a few topics I have on my mind and I figured to let out my frustration i’d let it out on my blog. That’s What your supposed to do right? Well my topic of the hour is about moving. I currently want to move to Augusta, GA. NO JOKE. I’m from fucking New Jersey and I’m about to try to move to Georgia. Now, I have told some family members and friends and of course, wrong fucking thing to do. No one is supporting my decision on me moving there. They ask why and I tell them because it’s cheap. Seriously. It is. Gas is $3.11 in Augusta, GA and here in Tinton Falls, NJ its like $3.69. There are two main websites that help with first time-young-movers like myself. First website: areavibe.com next is something like frugal living.com.
With area vibe it tells you the demographics about a certain area and can compare which is cheaper to live, your city or the city you want to move to. It gives you a breakdown of the percentage of the different races, tells you how much gas would be and how much cheaper or expensive the cost of living would be. Augusta, GA is overall 35% cheaper to live than Tinton Falls, NJ. I found a beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment in GA for $739 per month. I can’t even get a studio for that much in NJ!!!!!! House buyer? Just want something small? a 3 bedroom 2 bath ranch in GA cost $70,000. If you get a 30 year loan with an interest rate of 4% and $2,500 down payment, you’d be paying a mortgage for literally $314 per month… WTF?!!?!?. Jobs? I don’t know about you but I’m a cook. I googled around the area checked to see restaurants to work at. PLENTY of them for me to find a job.
Need to create a budget to know how much you need to make or how much you should save up to live there?That’s where the frugal living website comes in. You use their budget calculator and BOOM! you’ve made yourself a budget. Figure the rest out and you’ve got yourself a plan. I need to save up at least $10,000 for me to feel financially secure while I’m down there. 10 grand can easily let me be able to pay for 3 months rent security deposit, bills, utilities, furniture and anything I need to survive for three months until I actually find and get a job.
Now, If you’re a lazy, dumb, piece of shit, that can’t save your money or can’t find a job easy because you’re good for nothing… you might not want to try to do what I’m going to do. And if you are smart enough listen to me: DO NOT TELL YOUR FRIENDS OR FAMILY YOU ARE MOVING UNTIL YOU HAVE IT COMPLETELY FIGURED OUT AND YOU’RE READY TO MOVE. The moment you spill the beans early, that’s when they’re going to give you their two cents on why you shouldn’t do it blah blah blah. DON’T LISTEN. Just keep it to yourself.
Save up a good amount of money, make a plan, and just fucking do it. It’s your life. It’s going to take me at least a year to save up that amount of money. So now I have plenty of time to plan out a good budget and keep track of living expenses in my new town I want to move in to. Like I said, don’t tell anyone who you know won’t support your choice to move. So my fellow future movers! Good fucking luck on your journey!
