@missedconnections I could really get on board with the concept of a year of EWYL (Eat What You Love)
@Anon Writer Anon! Thanks for writing. It sounds like you made the right call - emotionally, I would NOT be able to handle living in my tiny 1BR with an ex. Hope you have exactly what you want planned for this weekend, and I wish I could buy you a drink!
@Allison Ugh, I hear that. And I hate it.
Since acquiring a cohabitron, I've thought about this a little bit - assuming that safety is not an issue (which I deeply hope it is not for our dear Anon), how do you decide who moves out and who "keeps" the shared space?
Dudes, I am still studying, and came in low on my takeout budget last weekend. Now that I'm getting into the final push and we're out of groceries, I predict a few nights of pizza and probably some wine-fueled breakdowns over the course of the next three days. $75.
@apples and oranges THIS! Plus, isn't learning to be happy in a community that doesn't meet all of your pre-selected preferences a great life skill?
Public transportation is also so difficult to navigate in most places (even cities!) in America that not having access to a car can affect longterm financial growth in the form of limiting job options and housing locations.
I am surely not the only Billfold reader who took this quiz in an effort to avoid another more pressing task.
@limenotapple I agree with you 100% on Panera. I spent some time in the one near my grad school campus, because it was the only place with Wifi and free coffee refills nearby. But it is impossible to pay $11 for a mediocre ham and cheese sandwich and a bad apple and not feel ripped off.
