Why is your job an ideal one?
b.  What is the ideal job and why if you are not there?

What are you looking forward to?

Where do you see yourself five years from now?  Ten (if you can project that far ahead, Lol!)?

Bonus:  Do you like the name George?

What are you talking about? I've never lived or gone to school in PA.

Which really isn't that bad considering where you are and proximity to the city.  I know the prices of some of those dollhouses and if a job there presented itself we'd be there in a hearbeat, Lol.

I did read what you wrote.  And you're proving my point. $50,000 here isn't as paltry as you seem to think.

Yes, I was speaking of faculty - and some administrative staff.   They are a good example of not getting an advanced degree solely for the earning power.

You do realize that faculty in high COL areas make a lot more, right?

Three of my five employees have a bachelors degree - it's a requirement for their job.  None have a master's degree.  One will finish her degree in December.  

I HOPE they are not making ANYWHERE NEAR as much as you are then.

<<You do realize that faculty in high COL areas make a lot more, right?>> -- Umm yeah, I've made that point several times now.

 

<<I HOPE they are not making ANYWHERE NEAR as much as you are then.>> - don't worry your pretty little head. The pay scale in my office is equitable.

True and we PAY for that proximity to everything. Young people have to work so much just to afford a small house now

Savcal's HHI would be about $150,000 where you live.

I don't know what you want me to explain. I've already said it.

Pretty comfortably? No, not quite. Being able to own a home, cars, pay the bills, etc. and maybe, just maybe having some savings left over. Comfortable in my high COL making $100,000....starting off now, nope.

If being comfortable isn't being able to own your own home, cars and to pay all of the bills and have a little bit left over, what is comfortable?
