From what I understand, these proposed ideas are targeted at For-profit colleges--not private liberal art schools or smaller state schools. For-profit colleges churn out graduates at very fast rates who receive degrees that are basically meaningless. They are mostly funded by federal loans. Its a terrible system.
Did you just want to get your boots resoled or were there other issues with the boots? If you JUST wanted to resole the boots then you are correct--its way too much. I have bad feet and regularly get shoes resoled. However, I have also brought in boots with broken zippers, salt damage, and once I brought in a shoe with a snapped high heal. I think a good cobbler is worth the money and I'm wary of shoddy work--since I will just be back in six weeks for another repair. Its worth doing research before you visit the cobbler to see what people say about their prices and quality of their work.
I would recommend looking into Queens if you decide to move to NYC. It is the most diverse city per capita in the country according to the last census so its a really interesting place to live. When I lived in Astoria, I loved going to the cheap and amazing taco joints ($1.50 per taco) or Flushing for Chinese food. You can definitely have fun on the cheap in NYC but the city makes you work for it. If you really want to live cheaply, get a roommate.
Was I the only person who read the article wondering why the author only thought men worked at Goldman? I rarely play the sexism card but with the lack of even a MENTION of women plus the douchebag tone, it was all too much.
@Lily Rowan @sockhop Can I ask where you guys live? What is the service like? What is it like when you travel. I've finally finished my verizon contract and thinking of switching...
@mygoldies as an older sibling, there are other benefits to being the younger sibling. My parents relaxed all kinds of rules for my little sister because they realized that they weren't as important as they thought they were pre-kids. So things go both ways.
@BillfoldMonkey Before I switched to oatmeal--keeps my stomach AND my wallet full-- I used to buy boxes of the cereal that I liked WHENEVER it was on sale. I used to really like Barbara's cereal so whenever I found a 2 for six dollars deal, I would buy 4 or 6 boxes. Cereal is expensive!
@Megano, its not. Legally, bedrooms need at least 1 window. Also, I feel like the poster is totally crazy. Like the poster rented an apartment that he/she thought he/she could afford but is now subletting parts of it to support his financial extravagance. Am I reading it wrong? He/She seems like a jerk
@@fo Sure, but normally broker's will ask a fee of one month or 10-15%. 8 1/3% is a much better deal.
@thejacqueline Oh yeah, never in my life have I paid a percentage of the year's rent as a broker's fee. Always pay 1 month. Maybe in the chic-er parts of Manhattan you have to pay percentages but then again--Queens.
