    Definitely better.

    My family is stronger, making more money, work in a better department, bought a house last year, savings more money every week.
    I'm rolling.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Around 3 years ago I was laid off from a financial firm during mass layoffs. As of now I have a new job making more than I did at the one I was laid off from.

    Without any idea what you edited out, you are either lying or trying to be funny. Which is it?

    Re: Are you better off today then you were 3 years ago?

    Yes, I'm better off now than 3 years ago by almost any metric I can think of.

    I have a good job that I didn't have 3 years ago, I have better health insurance and more spending cash, I'm actually making progress paying down my student debt, I figured out how to form relationships whereas I didn't have a clue about women 3 years ago, I eat much healthier and am more physically fit, I'm much better organized than I used to be, I volunteer my time and money...and I'm just generally a happier person.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Re: Are you better off today then you were 3 years ago?

    yes.

    three years ago, i was about to lose my job due to funding cuts. in the interim, i worked a contract job with higher salary, and now i'm back at the job i worked previously.

    there was a rough 9 months where no one was hiring. in January of 2010, things got a little better, at least in my field. i'm hoping that trend continues.

    The pimp cane is reserved, only for the decedents of fly guy.
