@antheridia Co-signed! Though if you're into renting, it's really not that bad for a major city.
I shared a room with my brother when we were little- we probably moved into our own rooms when he was eight or nine and I was seven. There was plenty of space our house growing up but I think we liked it that way when we were little. Until puberty seems like fair game for room sharing-- once my brother and I hit the emotional crazy years of pre-teenhood and beyond we basically wanted to murder each other all the time.
@Meaghano This is normal right? My dentist just comes in at the end of the appointment to look at my X-rays and poke around in my mouth.
I'm in Canada, and my extended health covers my semi-annual cleanings and x-rays, but I am pretty sure they are about $120 each time. I definitely with all my heart believe that dental care should be publicly funded, but generally, unless you have no disposable income at all, you should probably cough up for your cleanings, which are very important to your long-term health even if they are deeply unpleasant.
@jfruh In Canada, dental (along with eye care and pharmacare) is not a part of the national public health care, with some exceptions (Quebec has full coverage for children under 18, there is some coverage for low-income and Aboriginal, etc). It definitely sucks, but it's also very hard to change because there's a lot of push-back from the institution.
*applause* Skiing sucks. Also I live in the shadow of Whistler-Blackcomb, where a season's pass costs $2000, and everyone on that mountain has an STI.
This sounds like an amazing trip-- friend trips are the best-- but seriously what is molecular gastronomy?! Does everyone understand that term but me?
I have siblings, so chores were alternated between us-- like we had to take turns vaccuuming, setting the table, emptying the dishwasher, pulling weeds. I think with one kid you could pull off this entrepreneurial game, but with three, my parents were mainly concerned with being as fair and equal as possible to prevent anarchy from breaking out.
@bgprincipessa Adrian Grenier from Entourage- FROM ENTOURAGE- is your choice for the non-sleazeball in that film?
"You can never get enough of what you don't really need" is an excellent thought to consider when spending money.
