On What Do You Do With a Ph.D. in Literature?

@wrappedupinbooks I thought it was supposed to be a play on "Au" being the periodic table symbol for gold. I was thinking "Dr. Gold...? Because it's ironic that she isn't making a lot of money?"

On Workplace Thievery

Soooo - when I was a 19 year old barista all my friends got free drinks (but I only had like three friends). I justified it because the policy of the cafe was we as baristas were entitled to free drinks at all times, even off shift so I just took that policy to it's logical extreme.

On Here Is Your Open Thread for the Rest of the Week

@Everyone - Thanks! It's especially exciting to me because for the first time I'm not saving up for school. So it's just going sit there nice and pretty. @cuminafterall - I have no responsibilities and no car. It's a good life (for now).

As of today I have a $1000 emergency fund saved! I got my enrollment deposit back from my college which freed up some funds. So now I have 1 months of rent+utilities+student loans saved which just feels good.

On "Surprise, You Are Getting a Raise!"

I've gotten a surprise raise (recently!) and it was awesome. It did make me work harder and I was already working hard. I wish I was cooler about it though. My advisors told me I was getting a raise and I went "Yay!!! Thank you!" When I wish I said, "I appreciate you recognizing my hard work."
