On I Literally Only Spend My Money on Coffee and Food

dude, don't sweat it about taking groceries on the subway. the savings at TJ's is way way worth it. I do almost all my grocery shopping there (except produce, duh) and lug all that stuff three stops on the train. no one ever cares, and usually there are lots of other ppl doing the same thing.

On WWYD: A Job After Graduation

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...

On My Last Hundred Bucks: Chai and Thai and Wine and Words

@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?
