To go where it's cheaper or stay where I love...

I love Boston, but it's killing me financially. I lived in Buffalo for years, and while it's not exciting, I don't hate it, and there's a great library. I mean, sincerely awesome. They have the handwritten manuscript for Huckleberry Finn and Mark Twain's chess board.

And I could live in a two bedroom apartment in a nice neighborhood (not the best, but perfectly liveable) for less than five hundred dollars a month, while in a job that pays exactly what mine pays now.

Of course, last hired, first fired, if the economy tanks again.

But it's not Boston and I love Boston and...

Feh.

Choices in life stink sometimes. Why couldn't I have fallen madly in love with an affordable city?


If you make: $33,887
Living in: Buffalo
Then
You would
need to make: $45,644
Living in: Boston

(That's not my salary--that would be kind of personal to post--just the entry-level salary of the job posted at the BECPL, which is pretty comparable to the starting salary at the BPL. Pretty big difference in what it can buy, eh?)
