Thanks for the compliment and your agreement with my thinking.
Yeah, life is what you make it. If you are motivated, have desire to succeed, anyone can do it. It just takes the person to make it happen.
I have a saying that I use a lot. "Dare to do what you dare to dream". Simple as that.

If someone is unhappy with their job, residence, location, lot in life, whatever, do something about it instead of moaning and complaining.
That will get nothing done.

You have my best wishes of luck in your planning.

I'm an over thinker and because I have somewhat irresponsible parents, I have been so apprehensive - I have 2 boys that I'm scared to death to let down. I realize now though that if I don't take a chance now, I may never do it. I have decided august is the date I plan to go - right before school starts - I'm ready! Im jumping in feet first Saving as much as I can until then! Wish me luck!

Scotty - you and I are the same age. NYC is a great place with the right money - but the cold and weather put a damper on a lot. I'm ready to go and don't blame you for being ready!!!

Default I enjoy being a Florida transplant from the north.

I have been in Florida since 1981 and I love the summer heat, the chilly winters, perfect fall and spring weather. Fishing off the east coast. I love it. The weather is right up my alley.
But the jobs here are bad. I live in Ocala,Florida and yesterday in the papers we were rated #3 as the third highest in UNEMPLOYMENT state wide.
I may have to leave and go where the work is. I hate that but....
That may have to be done.
I am 49 years old and looking for a job. Wow.

I know it's a drive from Ocala, but is the Yankeetown powerplant cranking up for construction yet?

I have been unemployed in CT for 1 1/2 years..I am moving to Spring Hill. It does not matter where humans live.....we all love to complain. How can a person living in NH complain about the snow!!!! If we were all the same......life would be so boring. I personally like cold and snow.....so why am I moving to FL????? insanity....it is fun!!!
