I am taking a year (maybe more) off of school to start a new life. I don't have much of a choice. What I do know is that I have a little over $1500 in the bank and an idea of where i want to live.
What i don't know is:
How much more money should I have saved before I move?
How do you get a job over a long distance?
Am I more likely to find a cheep life in a city (with high rent/higher wages?) or in a smaller town (less available jobs, lower wages?)
What kinds of certifications should I have to make myself competitive in the jobs market if I don't have a degree? (note: I'm not looking for a major career, i'm looking for a barista type job.)
How much do essentials like tampons/food etc. cost a month? (excluding any car related expenses)
Is there anything really important I'm forgetting to ask?
Thank you so much for helping me with this!
