    What annual return percent do you use? What percent inflation? What standard deviations? What stock / bond / international distribution do you use for those numbers? Do you change the numbers as you get closer to retirement and go more conservative? I'm in the process of doing long term...

    Allow me to specify: What I mean by getting a budget is finding out how to get money. That is why I said "more than just getting a job". Heyo yall! Second post here. In my first post, I asked how I could survive cheaply (whilst being moderately healthy) on my own. Now that I know more of what...
