Making Plans

I try to avoid looking at my bank account when I’m supposed to be saving so I don’t know what can be spent. Today it was time to run numbers.

A lot of casual friends in Africa asked how I was financing this overseas thing for so long. Trust fund? International Crime syndicate? Ah. Nothing so glamorous.

First, luck. Pretty decent luck.

Second, I have secret tightwad habits I can’t shake leftover from undergrad.

Third, lovely friends I should be better to. They have hosted me, fed me, picked my ass up from airports, and have generally been better than I deserve.

I’m running numbers because I have no idea where I will be in a few months and money is part of sussing the options. My bottom lines are: I need to be working in some capacity, and would like to skip the next Northern hemisphere winter. How hard can that be?
