This pretty city is going to be my new home in approx 6 months (or so). Planning stages has officially begun. Step one: Open savings account (done). Step two: keep money in said account (I made a deposit today, yay). Goodbye any [minimal] existing social life I had outside of work and school. All plans (with a couple exceptions) have been officially cancelled. Every spare penny is going to be pinched. Making this happen one way or another.
