@jrzvol:  I’m sorry.  It’s lousy.  It happens in this economy.  Any chance you could get your old job back?

aww, that’s awful, I’m sorry you are going through this!   

That’s a good idea, to possibly try and get back your old job? Otherwise, I think you might be better off to stick it out with a retail job in the area, for the few months. 9 months is a long time to be away from your Fiance before the wedding, with all the planning you will be doing, you will definitely want to have him around. Are you guys both planning on moving back to NJ when he is done school? Perhaps you can work up until the christmas season is over, then go back a bit early, so you aren’t stuck there the whole time, and you will only be apart for a couple of months…

I lived at home for a year while my then-boyfriend now-husband was in school. Honestly it really was the best choice for both of us. I worked my butt off and was able to save a bunch of money which we then used to move into a nice apartment after he was done with school. He was young and able to have fun with his friends. I think it gave us both a period of time to “find ourselves” and ultimately made the relationship stronger. I imagine it’s harder to do this as an engaged couple but I would still say it’s not as bad as it sounds.

Sorry to hear about your situation. I do think 9 months is a long time to live so far apart from each other. But it’s a really tough situation, and I can understand your desire to be back with your family. Best of luck!!

It sounds like your boss was mentally unbalanced. Yes, you admitted you had no marketing experience but 6 people in 48 hours? Yikes!

The way I make decision is literally a piece of paper and a pro/con list: 

– Will you be able to find a job (at least seasonal) in TN? 
– Would it be easier to find a job in NJ?
– How attached are you to the idea of living with FI?
– Financially – do you have bills you need to catch up with? If so, what living situation allows you to save money necessary? 

Living so far apart from your Fiance an be difficult, especially in the run up to the wedding, if you haven’t before. 

On a personal note, My parents and I don’t get a along very well at all but I’ve stayed at home in the months before the wedding (rather than finding an apartment with FH) to allow me to save money and give us a better future together. 

We lament it sometimes, but my FH is always willing ot let me crash a night or so at his apartment when family life gets rough. It’s a bit harder when its NJ to TN though.

Are you going to apply for unemployment.  In my area they have a non-profit called the Unemployment Law Project and they consult with you about your situation and then decide if they can take your case…all for free.  If they win your case they ask that you make a donation.
