New Jack Update: A Vision Board for: Moving Out

As a recent graduate of college, most would assume that I was far from stacked full of chips on Graduation Day and had to move back in with family upon my return.

My return is more and more being highlighted that it is unwelcome, but I'm in a scenario where I still am paying off massive credit debt, student loans, etc. and therefore, can barely account to have anything left over to "save". My stay is definitely being highlighted that it is no longer welcome at this point...

As far from ungrateful as I've put on display, 300% of the time somehow it is featured that I'm ungrateful to have somewhere to be after graduating college. I turned 21 approximately one month before Graduation day. I went into college at the age of 17, turning 17 two months before graduating from high school. I went to class, worked at the same time, dealt with the passing of my grandmother and emerged 100% on time and barely at the legal age of 21. I apologize for whoever might take it wrong, but I deserved to come out and relax for a minute. I was unemployed for nearly 9 months. Now that I am employed, as much as I might not love in least what I do, I still snagged a pretty goddamn great job itself, the money and benefits and title to go with it. I try to do all of this with a health condition that forces me to sleep anywhere from 10-13 hours per day. Though my efforts are not appreciated and respected, I anger not...

I simply carve the next move...

Requirements:
  • I need to move WEST of Suffolk County. If I MUST still reside in Suffolk County, I have to live the closest to the Babylon and Mineola LIRR lines. This will envoke cheaper rent and provide the perfect opportunity for job relocation to NYC. I'm glad I'm so familiar with LIRR so backwards and forwards that I know exactly where to relocate to in order for things to be the most effective...
  • If not given a raise within the next 6 months, I need to speculate resigning from my current position. I can SAVE and I'm so unbelievably grateful to be making as much as I currently am enabling me to SAVE money to move out but I can't live on what I make for rent/utilities and God-forbid anything else...
  • I need to be living somewhat equidistant..I still want to be EXTREMELY close in proximity to my BFF and parents home which is five blocks away from each other as well as my family in Brooklyn. I'm not going to BANK my location on my relationship with The Significant, though we've been together a near 3 years now, if he doesn't step his game up the way I am he will fall away from me. I don't want to be that ex-girlfriend he bumps into in the supermarket regularly. Hells no. This location must be set on what is beneficial to me and me ONLY. As I am the proprietor of the apartment...however, when my friends go to the city, come from Long Island, come from Brooklyn etc. I want them to be able to stay at my place easily.
  • I want to save or have enough to have a 1 & 1/2 bedroom apartment. The 1/2 bedroom will 100% tailored as a walk-in closet. I have it completely mapped out 400%. My bedroom itself will NOT be a place of clothes, shoes, clutter etc. as it is NOW. There will be two separate places. The sanctuary where I rest my head..and the room where I will be able to view all my clothing and construct all my outfits, daily in peace.
  • Safe neighborhood. I'm a woman. I don't "gun-sling", etc. I'm not Tupac. I need to be somewhere, where I can park my car and not sleep with one eye open in fear it'll be missing the next day.
  • Curb my current spending habits...this month of February, people would've swore my name was Diddy. From Juicy Couture to Givenchy, from the Ipod Touch to Coach and going out to eat at restaurants 4 days a week, I've got to slow down crazy if I'm going to come up with bread...I went super hard this month, I have a ton of new stuff. A ton...
  • Clean and classy enough that has the potential for rent-to-own.
  • My Federal return is already burned up; I need to use the State return to fix my car and whatever is left over from it, add to the apartment savings account. In which, I was a good girl and added a $500 chunk from my Federal directly into the apartment account.
  • Unfortunately, take ADVANTAGE of this recession where everything is retardedly cheap..start stocking up on furniture, etc. on my first check of April 2009. Insects don't carry everything at once..they stock...little by little..
I'm going to devise a vision based, physical, vision board for this that I can actually HOLD. I'm going to print this entry and tack it unto it as well.
The only two things I should further allow myself is the new laptop I need in order to continue THIS work, and the Coach bag I've been watching for months...

There go the YSL tribute shoes I was going to buy.......

I'm so ready to get started, and I'm not waiting, it all begins today..is there a rehab for MAC Cosmetics spenders? Cause that could be the one thing to break the board..
