    $14 an hour? That's OK. The cost of living in New Hampshire is only about 10 percent higher than the national average. ::)

    $30,000 a year for a 24K paper? That's not terrible.

    Yea, that's not bad for the circ size. Not sure if it's decent for the area.

    Nashua is a very, very large city; although you can find some decent places to live within a 10-20-30 minute driving distance. Plenntttyy of smaller towns you can move into and all within decent driving distance from the larger cities so you are definitely not that far from something to do.

    Yeah, I didn't mean to comment on the area. Never been there, no idea about COL. But I never made 30K until my current job, so I can't see that being a terrible amount. You may not have a house, but you can probably find a good enough apartment.
