Everybody I care about in my life has now left me, I have to move out of my parents' basement in May, and in the last week of April I am probably going to jail for 90 days anyway.
So basically, at the end of July... just past the one-year mark of my entry into IM... I will have nothing and nobody.
Time to make plans.
First, what can I put in place in the next two months that will bring in passive income even if I don't touch it for 90 days? I've set all my important bills on autopay already, so if I can just keep a couple hundred a month flowing into the account, everything will stay hooked up and I can pick up right where I left off when I get out. Ideally, I'll also build a little nest egg to bootstrap the next phase of my life.
Second, where should I go live? I've got nothing left here. I can live and work anywhere with an internet connection. I've always wanted to live in New Orleans. I've been considering going back to the East Coast again. I've thought about maybe Las Vegas. Maybe even Montana. On the international front, I've never been to Australia or New Zealand, which seems like a glaring omission. I loved Ireland and London, and Suffolk is appealing. Probably ought to get a new passport soon, just in case, because they take some time.
Third... my cats. Board them for three months and bring them with me when I get out, or just drop them with a rescue organisation? It seems kind of cruel to make them live in cages for three months. Are there rescue organisations that can take the cats temporarily?
