Moving to Colorado--any thoughts welcomed!

I have just accepted an offer to teach in a small town near Steamboat Springs, which is across the country from where I have lived/worked mostly all my life. It's a huge step for me (I'm nearly 40), and I am okay with the newness of starting over, etc. I am a bit nervous about the learning curve, but I think the people will be gracious and helpful, so that's not something that causes me to lose sleep. What I've worked on almost day and night since taking the job offer (teaching) is a budget. It's an enormous pay cut for me (approximately $15,000), and I'm concerned about being able to cover costs. I'm more of a saver than spender, and I've always probably saved more than the average person. I know that teachers live there and survive (and maybe even thrive!) on the salary. I think I'll be okay as I get my bearings, but for now I would be so grateful to anyone who can share their thoughts about budgeting in Steamboat Springs, cost of living, anything at all.

Gotta Run Now!

What's the name of that song that you play on your running playlist that makes you push yourself further? You know the one - you're jogging at a decent, steady pace and then it comes on and mentally you go "Oh, YES!" and suddenly everything seems to get a lot more awesome and you are running full pelt with a huge grin on your face.

Chamorro Translation?!

Welcome to Guam! Would anyone out there know how to say "Welcome to Guam" in Chamorro? My Google-fu has failed me, yet has lead to an interesting education on the history of Guam. I basically work on a ship and compile printed information on each port we visit. In a "good idea at the time" moment, I started using the local phrase for "welcome to..." as the header. It's been interesting as we travel around the world, but Guam has stumped me! Any ideas?

How to get the best conversion rate (GB Pound to US Dollar)?

How to get the best conversion rate (GB Pound to US Dollar)? I've been working in London for the past year, trying to save up money for grad school when I return to the states. I was told that December was the best month of the year to do a GBP to USD conversion (not too sure how accurate that is). I bank with Barclays (England) and Chase (US) and am in the states at the moment. I've brought the money (in GBP) over because I thought it would give me more conversion options. I know that it can get complicated with conversion rates changing, various banks with their own exchange rates, etc. I'm willing to open an online bank account if that's the best option to transfer pounds to dollars. Are there any conversion geniuses out there who can help give me any tips? Many thanks! D

I'm too old to be scared of intimacy!

How do I let people love me? Will I ever outgrow my fear of intimacy? I'm in my late 20s. I'm scared of intimacy. Don't get me wrong, I'm not scared of sex. Won't think twice about a threesome, but am startled by holding hands. If a guy wants to get to know me more, compliments me, or crosses the line from being sweet to me to being sweet on me, I get super flustered. I stutter or look at my feet. I run away. [more inside]

How to transfer Instapaper to Kindle 3

I cannot figure out how to transfer articles I've saved at Instapaper to my new Kindle 3. From what I read it ought to be possible, but after two days I can't set it up. If I understand correctly, Instapaper will email to my kindle email address the articles I select to be sent, and the Kindle is somehow supposed to receive them via my Wi-Fi. Need I admit I'm a bit clueless? I need very specific step-by-step directions and or suggestions for finding / hiring somebody to set this up for me. I bought the Kindle mainly to be able to do this. I work on Mac Book Pro.

Pack clothing to go to 2nd home?

We just bought a condo (with a large closet in the master) in a ski resort town about 1 1/2 hours from our home. we use it on weekends and for vacation. I have a question about keeping clothes there or packing clothes each time we go. I thought originally it would make sense to keep clothes there but am finding it kind of makes me crazy. It seems like unless I remember what is there, I am forever guessing wrong. For example, last time I was there I was with only one pair of underwear because I thought i had some there. Anyone have any advice for me that will simplify my clothing life? It almost seems easiest to just pack all of what i need for the weekend. We go about 2 weekends per month and I visit random times alone during the month. Thank you!

How do you know if it's worth pursuing?

I am now in a living situation where I live with a bunch of friends. I was always close friends with one of the girls (for about a year) and one night we cuddled. It led to some more cuddling for a few nights but it bothered me. Not because I didn't like it but because I'm the type that wants things to be clear. I've always been in the mindset that if I like a girl, I will pursue her and make it clear to her. Leaving things unclear can lead to messy relationships/breakups/fights and hurt feelings in the end.

Wireless Carrier/Service Fine, Phone Needs to Go

I just realized, after calling ATT's tech line, that I cannot send pictures using my 3-yr old bottom of the barrel (then/now) Samsung flip mobile because of some damage done to it after taking a pretty nasty spill on my bike while the phone was pocketed.

You're an Idiot, Dent.

I'm trying to find this passage from The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, where there's this person who's so fed up with everything in the universe, that he travels the entire cosmos, telling each and every one of its inhabitants that he, or she, or it - is an idiot. The passage describes how he met Arthur Dent. Thank you.
