    if you aren't getting paid for 2 months then 50man including key money and deposits, 2 months rent, 2 months utilities, startup costs blah blah blah then 50man sounds like the minimum you should be bringing. JETs normally only have to wait 3 weeks before their first pay cheque. To be honest your current job sounds ghastly. You'll probably make more cash ditching the sub teaching malarky and do some casual laboring or a retail gig.
    Great men of action never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job.

    Some people did, some people didn't (me) and some people came over close to broke and miraculously survived until their first paycheck. ESID and all that.

    Otherwise it NEVER gets used.

    Same here... showing her how to video call seems to be helping though.
    ...just hope that I haven't started something I'll later regret.

    My grandmother didn't even know she could call me on facebook until I called for my grandpa's 90th.

    we're all pretty glad that Bernie uses Facebook/email. Although I like to imagine from time to time that he has somebody else log on/set up everything, so that he can just type in one of his speeches.

    one a side note, my MOM doesn't know how to use email, but that's a special case. I had to give her a 30 min. lecture on how to use her TV netflix, standing in front of the screen like the Jeopardy girl.
