Default I'm Saving Up Money To Move To Palm Beach, Florida

I don't want to deal with winter anymore. Last year just sucked away my endurance for cold and snow. And yet hear I am, still in New Jersey, it is cold out, it is snowing, and I don't want to deal with it anymore. I have approximately $7,000 in the bank right now, I owe my mother $2,000, and I figure I need a good $15,000 to be able to start a new life down the coast/ I save between $500 to $600 a month, so in around 20 months I will be moving away, and so I keep chanting to myself, just $10,000 more and I can move to Florida. Just $10,000 more and I am moving to Florida. Just $10,000 more...

I did a little bit of research, and am continuing to do more. An average two bedroom apartment was almost affordable, and I only need one. Plus I saw a job listing a few months ago offing more money than I make here in Jersey for the same work I am doing now. So things don't look so bad from up here.

I just need to save up for the moving costs.

Good luck with that! Seems like a large change in general, though weird that it's because of winters... For me it's just a natural thing.

Why Florida though, if I can ask? Besides the already mentioned reasons. Florida doesn't exactly have a very good reputation from what I know.

So you are moving away from horrible snow and cold and moving right into hurricane alley? I also hear Florida has horribly hot and humid summers. Not trying to talk you out of it or anything, just sayin', lol.

All of that being said, wish you the best of luck. It's great to set some goals, gives you something to look forward to instead of getting caught up in the day-to-day shit. Out of curiosity, any particular reason you are choosing Florida over, say, Nevada or California?

I spent three weeks in Florida between Miami and Orlando for work back in July of 2014 working for that architectural survey company. The work sucked, but I really enjoyed being down there on my time off (even though I never hit the beach). The temperatures didn't bother me. The humidity didn't bother me. The daily dose of rain bothered me a little, but nowhere near as much as snow does.

Florida hasn't been hammered by hurricanes in years.

Florida's politics are shady, but no state income tax is solid and rent is fine.

That is true, but in relative terms, Florida is the most vulnerable state in the US in regards to hurricanes. They have a far larger frequency than anywhere else, even if it is once every 10 years. I am sure it is one of those phenomena that is blown way out of proportion by the media... I wouldn't know, since I live in an area that has never seen a hurricane. But yeah, see exhibit A for my supporting documentation: Hurricane Susceptibility Map

I guess it doesn't matter where you live, there is some natural phenomena that is prevalent in that area that will make your life a hell. Snowstorms, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanoes, earthquakes, etc. I am glad that I live in an area that pretty much sees none of the above... except earthquakes, and that happens only once every 500 years or so. And we are overdue for a 9.0... so yeah

Anyway... I hope it doesn't sound like I am raining on your parade TGP. I am very excited for you and I know it will be a lovely change of pace from the hectic (and quite frankly, rude) culture of the northeast. On the plus side, you are moving to a part of Florida that has lots of beautiful women, and not the part that has a bunch of old retired fogeys

If there are hurricanes build a house of stones.

Also according to the Rocksong 'Rock You Like a Hurricane' from the german Rockband The Scorpions ...Hurricanes are not that bad.

And most people, 22000 people, died at Great Hurricane of 1780.

Beware of Alligators.

It's possible that your cold tolerance will simply vanish to non-existence once you move to Florida. I live in Southern California, which has a similar climate to Florida, and most people here turn into infant vaginas when the temperature goes below 70 F. People think I have some sort of superhuman cold tolerance just because I can go outside in the evening without a sweater.

I already feel like I lost my tolerance for the cold. That is one of the reasons I am looking forward to this so much that I am talking about 20 months early.

Damn man, 70 F is around 21 C, that is really warm here in the Netherlands. Only in the heat of summer do we get above 25-30 C (77-86 F), and we stop wearing jackets outside on average above 20 C.

I have always thought of room temperature as being 73F, which is just a little bit warmer.

It's not the worst snow I have seen here in New Jersey. But it is another reminder that I will be leaving in 16 months.
