In regards to him converting to Mormonism, it's not really any less likely than I would've said the odds would be in 2010 of me going to a church in the next two years with faith healing rituals and where the pastor once preached while holding a snake. And Bushie is obviously easily led so...

Oh no. Did you interview for this, BushKE? Or did you fill out a resume and they just called and accepted you?

I interviewed for it last week face to face in Oklahoma City.  I've known about this for at least a couple weeks, but I wanted to keep the cards close to my chest and didn't want to reveal them before I knew absolutely sure.  There are still a couple details that need to be ironed out, mainly timing, but we'll get that sorted out within the next week or sooner.

No, this was not a call and accept job, this was an actual face-to-face interview from the guys in Salt Lake City when they were visiting Oklahoma City.

There were actually four slots open in different locations - Salt Lake City, Utah; Portland, Oregon; Lexington, Kentucky; and Raleigh, North Carolina.  They gave me a choice and I picked SLC because I've never been west of I-25 and always wanted to go out that direction, but didn't want to pay the astronomical cost of living in Portland.  Plus, the Wasatch Mountains can't be anything but beautiful!

It is a supervisor position with Xerox.  The pay screw up was more Apple's fault than Xerox.  As far as housing goes, I'm aiming for a furnished, efficiency apartment.  I'm going to try to avoid having to hire movers, so I'm going to travel light.

Wait, so you were just complaining about being misled about how you were being paid and the process being rigged and now you are moving to another part of the country to tale a job with the same company that just misled you??

When I take a step back, I think it was more Apple that rigged the pay and not Xerox, because in the same building in OKC, US Cellular offers their workers a flat $9.50 in training and $10.00 after.  I don't hold Xerox responsible.  As far as the rigging, I obviously don't think that now.

Salt Lake City has a lot less humidity and allergies should be a whole lot better!  Plus, I would love to see the Wasatch Mountains outside my window!

Hell no. Now that Bushie is moving to SLC he might be able to get his health under control and enjoy a healthy lifestyle though. Off course Portland would be better, but it might be more of BRTD kind of city.

Good luck with the move! It's a big step to be leaving your family and personal connections and moving interstate for a fresh job. I did that a few years back and it was very daunting, but it ended up being about the best thing I've ever done.

I'm actually going to keep it for another year.  I want to have a safety net just in case things were to fail up there, especially with it being so far away and no family up there except for a great uncle whom I have only met one time in my entire life.  I don't anticipate that happening, but I want a safety net and a home to come back to just in case.  I will probably put the house on the market next Fall.  I've poured over my finances quite extensively this evening and I should be able to swing rent and a mortgage.  I'm going to transfer the utilites to my mother and dad and they're going to pay for those as they will checking on the house from time to time.  As far as my cat goes, I'll have to find him a new home.  I've got someone in mind that I'm going to ask first.

That is a BIG plus.  I've never been to Utah, but it doesn't strike me as fast-food filled town.  Sure there are probably fast food joints, but its probably not the main meal like it is in most of the South.

I was thinking about how the weather is pretty nice for 10 months of the year there, and you can escape the heat in the summer by going to the hills and hiking/walking there, that should help you a lot with weight loss.

Wait, so you own a house in OK, and you're (at least initially) going to have it sit empty, with no one living there?

Also, what will your health insurance situation be in UT?  No more free Native American medicine?

My mother and dad will check on the house each week and do maintenance as needed.

I will have benefits after 90 days, and i will have a doctor in Salt Lake for minor illnesses, but I will also fly back to Oklahoma once a year and go to the Indian Doctor for a full checkup.  In the mean time, I'm going to have my mother pick up my prescriptions every 90 days and mail them to me.  I can still get free medicine except for those prescribed in Utah.  I'm going to visit my doctor one more time before I leave and see if I can get a 90-day supply of my medicine and allow my mother to pick them up.

Inks, things change.  Kenya is still in the picture, but I have to do what I need to do now.  Kenya will be pushed back a few years.  As far as going this next March,  that's not gonna happen.

You need to be really careful here.  As someone who works in the industry I can tell you here are very few things that can screw up your credit worse than missing a mortgage payment.

Now I know you have claimed you went over your finances extensively, but your history on this is a bit suspect.  I know the costs are far cheaper where you are and in Utah than anything I am use to, but a mortgage and rent on $33k a year (if that is even true), doesn't seem to fit.


Anyway I have a few questions for you

1.  What do you owe on your mortgage?

2.  What do you think your home is worth?

3.  What is your mtg payment? (including escrows, or what is the taxes and ins if no escrow)

4.  How much do you think you would be able to rent for in SLC?  


If you don't want to answer this on the board, fine, I can certainly understand s its personal financial info (though you have given out just about everything else on here), but you really need to sit down and think this through rather than making any rash decisions.

After doing some quick calculations, based off what you would make, what comes out fir federal and state withholding and what not, considering you are single with no dependents you would clear approx $2,200  month after taxes, that number would drop a bit once the benefits kick in and you start paying for that.  You could technically have less withheld, but that wouldn't be smart since you would wind up owing that anyway.

I find it extremely difficult anyone can handle a mortgage and rent when they are only clearing $2,200 a month
