I’m feeling very financially fragile this week, as a result of all the crap I’ve detailed previously. It’s been very trying… I mean, I’m glad I’m here, because I really enjoy my job, the people I work with are great, and every now and again I do drag my sorry backside out of the house and do something fun.. but still, it is anything but cheap living here. And as the Australian dollar slowly but steadily climbs relative to the U.S., the financial value margin in me working here as opposed to back home decreases. I’ve stopped looking now, as of several weeks ago, because it’s too depressing.
Not that I’m going anywhere, but still… it’s trampled all over my apparent illusion of moving to “the valley” and making the big bucks.
