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?

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

Having a master degree, it is. But I guess when you have child support added on to your household salary of $7,516 per month, it isn't so paltry. Laughing

<<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.

So they don't make much? Under $30,000/year? Frown

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

Not quite unless you are adding in her child support.

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?

I said MAYBE having some for savings. Most people do NOT even making THAT much. It sounds like a lot to many people but it truly is not.

child support is not taxable income.. in fact it is not income at all... and usually it's so not even remotely close to being enough to help raise a child it's laughable.

Ehh, we'd be fine without CS. In fact, we're soon facing a significant reduction. I'm not worried. My ducks are all in a row.

I'm not about to discuss my staff's salaries.  They cover quite a range, as some are professional, exempt positions and some are hourly, classified positions.

CNN Money disagrees with you.  And agrees with Geschits.

That all depends on how much your ex makes also. Savcal has willingly provided her ex's income before and has said what else he provides for, for her children (medical, college, etc.). It IS extra money per month no matter how you want to dice it.

$406 shy of $150,000 according to this calculator:  http://www.bestplaces.net/cost-of-living/  How much do you guys make in your very high cost of living area?  You said you make roughly the same as SavCal right?  How about your DH?
