11. The waiting is hard
I knew I was in jeopardy in June but it took until April for the hatchet to fall. My advice would be to pretend it's a certainty and save all the cash you can.

I had a second job and upped my hours there to tide me over, but maintaining COBRA costs a fortune.

What would be your options for health insurance?
