If only I could take a quick peek into the future... Even 15 minutes worth! Though of course, with my luck, in those 15 minutes I would just see myself asleep in the dark room for the entire 15 minutes and wouldn't learn anything useful or interesting.
Eh, whatever happens, happens. As I said all the way back three years ago - when one's worst-case scenario is a six-figure salary, even if it is in Podunk, Nowhere - it is still not a pretty sweet deal.
PS I have implemented an expense reduction program. That means I DID NOT buy a really, really gorgeous set of necklace, earrings and a bracelet for $150.
