On Every Job I've Had: City Paper, Biking in Jorts, and The World's Largest Design Firm

@eemusings Have you successfully made the move into something corporate (lol high school fave band)? Any advice for me? It makes other people look at me crazily but I'm really ready to work for something less "cool" and something much more STABLE. Like with a boss and a job description and a 401k. Is this the dream now??

@alexbaca Oh you made it clear, but I have literally THE EXACT OPPOSITE OPINION. Why does anyone live out there in those small states?! The weather is trying to kill you, the traffic is horrible, everyone is SO MEAN, there are Dunkin Donuts instead of Starbucks, what the fuck. My colleagues are in Boston and whenever they come to this coast they're convinced they should move.

On For the Love of Books

@RachelG8489 Agreed, the best way to read. I love being surprised with books that I wanted to read months ago. Kindle library books are THE BEST THING. Even better, it is impossible to accrue late fees with them. I am an expert at accruing late fees!

"In no job since graduating college have I had a distinct path for success, and I placed a priority on finding an environment in which I could grow. It means making a hard divergence away from informal industries to something much more corporate, via what’s essentially an entry-level job" This this this this this. I just about had a meltdown to my (fortunately local & live-in) boyfriend about this yesterday. I'm about your age and have 4 years of startups and mismanaged nonprofits under my belt, and am dying to have a boss that actually teaches me things. The only thing I must disagree with is that the west coast is the best coast. I hope you love it on this side of the country.

My 1 thing is to cry lots of tears for Logan, both happy and sad kinds.

On Doing Your Taxes The Night Before

It is too late for this but I wanted to chime in. I am a contractor & I don't know if this is ACTUALLY legit, but what I did was file my return from the previous year way early (like in February) -- and pay the $92 I owed for 2013 then (making up the difference I underestimated). Then, a couple days ago, I used the electronic form to e-pay the estimated taxes for Q1 2014, because who even has a printer and I didn't want to go to Fedex to print my 1040ES. It seems to have worked well?
