<—- and that is my face right now.

As eager as I am to leave the rural hell I'm living in, the one thing that scares the crap out of me about moving is the fact I will have to pay higher rent pretty much wherever I go. I've personally never paid more than $350/month for a 1-bedroom, plus maybe $50-100 in utilities. My current apartment is a decently sized studio at $320/month with water and trash included.

Now I don't plan on moving to NYC or anything any time soon, but damn if that article wasn't a reminder to think more carefully about where to go and what kind of job I should look for.
