Re: DutchGirl's journal

The reduced hours sounds good. It will be April before you know.
The gig seems nice. Is that still the "WBSO" arrangement? I don't know how much you get per hour but would recommend not be too shy with your wage 8-)

Re: BlueNote's Journal

Sometimes you need to get out your comfort zone to grow. Sometimes it is not about you and it will never work. You demonstrated you own your life by taking the right action. Good luck in the new job.

246 days = 176 work days (Mo-Fri) target Wealth-tax @RealPerson and @wold, Dutchgirl is right. I hope the proposal will be amended in our favor.
