"Undermining my electoral viability since 2001."

New York, What Have You Done For Me Lately?

The question must be asked: why am I living in NYC right now?

I don't have a good answer, other than that I have a lot of friends here. But really, I don't seem to see people all that often, and while I enjoy the daily life in BKLYN, I could get a similar quality of life in a lot of otther places. Living here is not boosting my career in any way, and the cost of living kind of works against my plans to retire debt and save money in 2006.

I'm not about to leave, but as I come up on a possible moving date from my current sublet, I have to start wondering about these things. I'm not at all unhappy, but as I begin to consider more deeply what the hell I'm doing with my life, the cold calm calculus of reason begins to beg a number of questions.
