about-to-graduate student looking for job/apartment
« on: February 04, 2007, 06:20:34 pm »

Hello Free Staters! Boy, am I glad there's a resource like this forum for us to contact other members of the project.

I'm a music (percussion) performance major @ Temple University in Filthydelphia, PA. I'll be graduating in May and I don't know what to do. My mom has been so gracious and generous as to essentially support me through my college "career" but that support ends when I graduate.

I'm a little nervous about the whole being-independent thing, but I'm excited about it, too (that is, after all, what we libertarians live for, right?). Thing is, I've never been independent and I'm not exactly sure how to go about things.

Obviously, I'm tapping into resources like real estate sites and craigslist to look for housing and jobs. And I will be driving to NH in early March to see apartments and rental houses with me own two eyes.

However, I fear that with such a useless degree as Music Performance (I'm qualified to hit, bang and crash things together - in a musical way, of course) I will not be able to find a job which will pay enough to allow me to cover my expenses. The first thought, of course, is to cut my expenses and live below my means. I MUST have a car/gas and a roof over my head.

In any event, I don't think I'll be able to find a decent job. I certainly am willing to flip burgers to make ends meet for a while. But is that necessary? Do any other free staters out there have any ideas for a soon-to-be-first-time-independent young man?

I'm willing to do hard/manual labor, I have reliable wheels, an enthusiasm for liberty not easily matched by your average Joe, a sharp mind, an easy manner, a phenomenal memory, a tight control of the English language, a mean set of writing skills, a voracious appetite for knowledge and I'm a quick learner.

Again, I'll be moving to NH this summer (early or late, dependent upon whether or not I intern at the Foundation for Economic Education).

First thing is to check the NH Jobs Board:

You might also want to post to the NHFree forum, which is an awesome resource for what's going on in NH:

When (or before) you arrive, be sure and join the NH Liberty Alliance, so you can be kept abreast of the latest political developments in-state:
