@Megano! And next to each transaction, two buttons: LAUD and CHIDE
You’re gonna have to start offering Billfold Platinum® subscriptions, which, I dunno, could let people observe Logan’s checking account and credit card balances in real time.
@Jake Reinhardt It helps to look at it in a broader sense. You might notice an abundance of different textures or patterns in the magazines. Or maybe the thing is to break up your look with different layers of clothing; long shirt underneath a sweater that pokes out underneath, for example. Or whatever, it's a different look that shows through every year. You don't have to go out and buy replicas of everything you see, but maybe you already have half the stuff you see in one form or another, and seeing it all put together will help you put something similar together. Maybe you need a new sweater and seeing some up-to-date styles will influence you to get a size bigger or smaller, depending on new ways you've discovered you can wear that sweater. Or maybe you have a paisley something from 9 years ago that you never wear because come on but now you realize you can understate that monstrosity by combining it with something else, and feel good doing it. You should look at what you already have and match it with a few new purchases. Or maybe you'll discover you can get similarly smart looks with what you already have after a bit of rearranging. BE CREATIVE!
@bgprincipessa I am going into my second year at the iSchool at UMCP, and you will be okay! First: Are you already in the area? If so, start looking for a job/internship now. Join the iSchool Discussion listserv, if you haven't already - tons of internships and employments come up every day. Go here: http://www.lsoft.com/scripts/wl.exe?SL1=ISCHOOLDISCUSSION&H=LISTSERV.UMD.EDU. In fact, whether or not you are in the area yet, join it - you will learn what libraries are looking for, and you can always apply for fall internships and jobs. Second: There are PLENTY of library jobs in DC - if you want to work as a government librarian or be more involved in the IT/database management part of services. But if not, there are still opportunities for you. I came here with zero experience outside of a few hours of library volunteering a week, and now work two jobs in libraries - one here on campus and another at a federal institution (for which I was the only applicant). I also volunteer once a week at a DC public library. Even if you see an opportunity that isn't EXACTLY what you want, it bears consideration to apply, because when you graduate, what will matter most won't be your GPA (No employer cares as long as you have at least a 3.2, which you can no doubt do if you show up to class, do at least half the readings and do your work - especially the core classes). What WILL matter is if you already have experience of some sort - especially diversified experience at a couple different places. So get on that internship/job bandwagon stat - it is what will make you competitive when you graduate. There is more I could tell you, if you would like - about professors, specializations, iSchool organizations and other opportunities - I'd be happy to help! Don't let yourself be intimidated by the comments here - I'm living your fears (lots of loans, expensive area, oversaturated job market, etc.) right now and I promise you, you can do this!
My mom grew up in Eaton, a small town (~8,000 people) about halfway between Dayton and Richmond, Indiana. Apparently a local joke was "I'd rather date a girl from Eaton than eat a girl from Dayton." Sorry, I know that's not relevant, but I love that joke and have few opportunites to share it.
it should be noted that your date bought you a round of drinks too....
