woohoo for cool fridays. i think its 75 degrees outside. james and i have been trying to figure out the future: where to move, how many months we will need to stay in the apartment to be able to afford to move...all of that. we thought about taking out some sort of moving loan, but neither of us want to take on any more debt. granted that the interest rates are low (perhaps lower than credit cards), it might be worth it to take out a loan large enough to pay off our debt and give us some moving money. advice on this?
also, we were looking at banks online: places to open a savings account for the purpose of moving to the new apartment. Etrade seems to have the best interest rates (2.2%). Thats good compared to the standard 1% thats being offered now.

Any good advice in the financial area here would be appreciated.

Loans:

So, it seems a loan is the way to go..
anyone have any suggestions about an institution that would loan to a twenty something with nothing to use for collatoral.
Remember that i wanted to consolidate debt as well as have enough for the move.

i dont know what to do with myself. my transcript looks terrible (considering id leave to go to a new media conference during finals week and all..). im close to broke (although that will change when i start paying 250$ of rent instead of 1500$!), my job is getting tedious (although it is VERY steady, a security that many people dont have.)
in many ways, im ok. in fact, i am doing damn well, but im not satisfied. i feel im missing something. i am not excited and stimulated. (although my boy did run into the oregon dance theatre and they did give us free tickets for tomorrow night's ballet!)
ok, perhaps there is nothing to complain about at all except there can be no moving of any sort (never mind ideas of seattle...even if i were to stay in NYC...and of any sort does not mean into james's cramped studio....it means out of James's cramped studio) in my mind, moving is adventure. yes, moving the stuff sucks, but its change, and i find that its hard for me to live without it.
Bush scares me. This economy scares me. The middle east scares me. Sometimes I wish there was a way to go live in the hills for 10 years and then return after the disaster.
im scared today. i dont know why. reading the jobs forum on craigslist didnt help. james is quitting his job in 2 weeks. I will be supporting us until he finds a new one.
