Next, I need to see what my expenses are. Then begins the tough part--investing. *shudder*
Addendum: Further reading of You Can Retire Young reveals that, the lower your earnings are, the lesser of a percentage of them you can save, as more will naturally have to go toward necessities. So I don't feel too bad now, just a bit disappointed that I probably won't be able to salt away as much of my income as I would like.;
Good news, though, I opened a new savings account this evening, to replace the one that I had to close out while I was unemployed.
