The sun came up this morning and I greeted the day with a shower. In philosophy class we discussed the ontological arguments for the existence of God and I took it all in whilst eating a chocolate chunk muffin and drinking flavoured coffee. I am now sitting in ‘Common Ground’ a coffee shop on campus, writing in my blog.
Some days its hard to figure out what my next steps should be. I’m concerned for the health of a friend, I’m a bit numb over yesterday and I’m thinking about living in Vancouver for part of the year so I can spend more time with Jazzy.
I looked at apartments for rent, and for about $1,000/month I found several one bedroom units in downtown Vancouver. Some even had an ocean view. I am also interested in renting an apartment in downtown Bucharest for about $350/month. This past July, staying in a hotel in Bucharest for three weeks cost over $1,000 so renting an apartment for a year at $4,200 really is a no-brainer.
Overall, I did the math on the cost of living a lifestyle in three different cities and the total came to just over $40,000/year. That seems like a reasonable, sustainable amount of money. Lots of people live on $40,000/year. Instead of buying toys, I’ll buy plane tickets. Furthermore, I believe my earning potential is higher than that, so my savings account will also benefit.
Of course, I need to green light a project before I can kick everything into motion. To that end, I shall continue to plug away.
In the meantime, I still haven’t figured out what I’m going to do today.
