I'm Asking: What's Your Next Big Move?

I'm Asking: What's Your Next Big Move?

It's an uncertain time everywhere. While February brought the first new-home sales upkick since July we're still experiencing sinking home values, layoffs, and a messy market.

One benefit of the turmoil — in my humble opinion — is that most of us are talking about our long term career goals and the steps we need to take to remain financially secure and confident. A friend of mine recently admitted watching layoffs at her company has forced her to look at her career goals and implement a plan for a change once the job market settles and companies start expanding again.

Have you considered the next major life change you will make?

He finishes graduate school in May and I start it in August. Looking at buying a house before then, since we know we are staying in state at least the next 3 years. Wedding, graduation (for me), and that sums up our next 2.5 years!

It's getting to the point where I need to have kids soon if I have them at all, but I'm not about to take that risk until I feel my employment is secure. Hopefully that won't be more than another year or two.

My company is moving to NYC from Texas by next year, and I'm moving up there with them. I've never moved to another city before, much less across the country, so I'm excited and nervous at the same time. Also, I don't know if my boyfriend of two years will be able to come with me, so we'll have to cross that bridge when we come to it. Once I'm settled, I also plan on going to graduate school part time.

I BETTER get my ring in the next 2 years. I've known my bf for 10 and have been dating for over a year so he has NO EXCUSE. I also plan on moving around 2011. I want to move to SC or GA. We've already talked about it so it is just a matter of planning. His family is from SC and he still has relatives there and I lived in Savannah for over a year so we know both places well. We both want to make sure that we have schools for the kids and a job for me lined up.

My husband and I aren't planning on having kids, but I want to adopt another dog in the near future. I also plan on doing an on-the-job training program that will allow me to take on more responsibilities and get paid more at work, so that's kind of exciting.

bigestive...which countries are you choosing from? My next big move will be going back to college. Things were pretty tight, so I had to take a year off to get up the money so I could go back and finish. That happens this fall!

Since we just bought our first house, really we're just doing house stuff right now. Gardening, improvements etc. Long term, get married, maybe move to a different city, closer to family. Something we need to discuss I guess!

here's the challenge for me. i'm getting married in less than a month, and my fiance and i want to have kids, and get a house - but that's a lot to accomplish so quickly. it's still our goals - and we're hoping that the economy gets better so we don't have to worry so much.

Deciding if I want to stay at my job and in this state. If I do, it'll be actively looking for a house to buy.

After getting laid off, my next big move is to return to the other side of the world to teach English in Korea (again!).

Deciding which country I'd like to settle down in. I keep flip flopping back and forth - it's the hardest decision I'll ever have to make and I feel like I only have, at most, 4 more years to decide, so ... I'd better get a move on.
