I’ve moved again and am not working any more (lots of changes for me, that’s life in the cheap lane I guess). My new cost of living is:
Rent – $670
VOIP – $22.45
internet – $45
variable – ~$580
total – $1,317
My passive income is at $311.47 (there was a nice little $11 / month dividend increase from my ROC stock), which is covering just under 24% of my new cost of living. This means I’m bleeding about $1K / month while applying for grad school.
In terms of networth and cash, I actually improved my cash position by $634 this month (got my final check from where I was working right before the end of the month).
This puts my networth figures at:
Building: $12,553.50 (what I put into it, it’ll take a bit more time before I can make any sort of estimate what my position is worth)
as of November 1st.
With no significant money coming in, my plans are mostly to stay the course (there isn’t a lot of costs for me to cut, unfortunately), get the ball rolling with grad school applications, then look around for something to bring in a bit of cash until I start (perhaps some contract programming, perhaps a short term business venture, perhaps something else, any suggestions?).
