I am now rethinking my career choices. This was too good.
And usually, it's the idiosyncrasies of places like that which make them places you will be reminiscing about for years. Sometimes fondly, sometimes... not so fondly.
@AnnieSchutte But Gallery Place is going to cost us $400 more a month. My boyfriend is justifying it by saying that because he's the president of three clubs, he'll be able to take home all the extra food from all the events if he's within walking distance and we'll save on transportation AND groceries that way. "But *I* won't, because I am graduating. I'll still have to commute ... somewhere." "WE'LL FIGURE IT OUT I AM NOT LIVING IN PENTAGON CITY"
I have to say, I'm more of a spender myself, so maybe I don't get it, but this seems... unhealthy. You don't have to consume a lot! But you also don't have to let your avatar become a virtual grifter for want of a lock. I don't know! I realize this is only one tiny snapshot of your life! I'm just glad you have Ritz Crackers Partner for balance. My partner and I alternate who gets to be the unhealthy saver/spender in different areas. I'm bad on food and smaller items; he's trying to convince me that we *need* to live right by where we go to school. (BUT PENTAGON CITY IS SO MUCH CHEAPER, WTF. You live in DC, what do you say? DC area people, help, should I live near PC/Crystal City metro and commute in or should I live at Gallery Place? /threadjack)
@automaticdoor Clarification-- I'm an equal-opportunity dater, as I like to call myself, and if my parents gave up on me because I was in a relationship with a girl I would be furious. This one hits under the belt for me.
@LW Oh man, now I'm even more offended, LW! I mean, unless you don't want a wedding or something or you live in a country where being gay is a crime punishable by death so you're deeply closeted. Otherwise, now I'm spitting angry, as my mom would say.
@melis It's super early! I'm a Young who graduated from college a year behind this person and if my parents told me a year from now (so, when I'm 26, because I was 22 when I graduated) that they were giving up on me ever getting married, I'd be really pissed. I mean, I wouldn't turn down the money, because I am a Poor Young, but I would be super pissed off. 26ish? Really?
This is a great story.
*high five* Yessss. This is how I feel too. Or at least, will feel, when I have to pay taxes. I hope.
This is absolutely criminal.
