TQC, my best friend in the whole world is moving to Portland, OR right around Halloween and asked me to go with him. I've been planning to move there anyway, but originally my plan was "save up $10k, find a job there, and then go". If I leave with him (which I would LOVE to do, as I'd rather be with him than pretty much anywhere else, AND I have a lot of anxiety about moving alone) I will only have ~$6k saved. Now, a lot of the costs of finding a place to live would be halved since I'll have a roommate; we plan to couchsurf or sublease to save money until we get jobs/proof of income and can find permanent housing; and I have a whole month to apply for jobs before I get there in the hopes of having some interviews lined up upon arrival. BUT I have NO IDEA if this is a realistic mission!|
Am I gonna totally fail out and have to live in a cardboard box until I can scrounge up enough for a bus ticket back to my dad's couch?
Can you tell me stories about when you moved to a new place?
