@kellyography I love all salads but you are ON THE MONEY with that Dumont reference. omg the crispy artichoke and the omg
here's what I would do: take the job, and continue to apply for jobs while working there (before and after work hours, obviously). that way, you're earning an income while continuing to look for better opportunities- and if one comes along and you get a job offer, you can put in your two weeks at the campus job and get outta there. in this economy, it can literally take a year to find a specific job in a specific field that you feel good about accepting. so, rather than take a year unpaid and livin with your parents while finding that job, use that year to make some cash during the job search. if you manage to put away some money in savings during that time, that will help you out so much when you start your new job, etc. and if it doesn't take very long to get an offer, even better. certainly you can leave the campus job on good terms as long as you put in enough notice...
@Sarah Todd@twitter the way I get it nice and crispy is by battering the tofu cubes in cornstarch before frying them. you don't have to use a lot of it to get a really nice... crust?
YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! edit: my one thing is to clear all my apps and photos off my old iphone 3gs so I can give it to my sis as a secondary xmas present. cause i just got my $0.99 upgrade to the 4 last week.

TOTAL: $0 Saturday -picnic with family and dog. bf bought us coffees, dad brought sandwiches and drove so I didn't spend any money. -dad bought us dinner at DuMont, which was very expensive (thanks dad!!!) -stayed in to watch The Philadephia Story on YouTube. paid $3 for the privilege. TOTAL: $3 Sunday: -went to brunch at a friend's house. she made a veggie frittata, so I brought mimosa supplies (OJ $4.50 + prosecco $11.50) -stopped at the pharmacy on the way home to pick up shampoo ($8.80) -stayed in, recovered TOTAL: $20.30 WEEKEND TOTAL: $23.30 (mostly thanks to dad + this terrible cold)
I live directly across the street from Gimme Coffee, but I usually just work from actual home because I have a puppy and I pretty much can't bear to leave her at home alone BUT when I need to get real serious about business I pop over to Gimme. They're nice and their coffee is amazing, though kinda pricey. Seconded about renting a workspace though- my whole company is a startup so we all work from home except for our developer who rents a desk for $130/mo at The Productive in Midtown. It's an option. If you don't have a puppy, I guess.
wait whyyy do you have to be out??
yay... i was there at the housing works cafe the night you told this story, and it was even better in person!
