On The Suburbs Want More Young People

@ATF You got to see the North End revitalization (well the completion of the Big Dig + Greenway) first hand! It's such a huge change down there from 10-15 years ago. Pretty amazing.

On The Suburbs Want More Young People

The funny thing is that there's a big 'naturalist' movement right now among the hipster class (?), or possibly just young people in general. Suburbs can really capitalize on this if they eased up restrictions on things like small agriculture/commercial farming, promoted their conservation areas, and highlighted public transit.

On Whoops, the $522 Haircut

I really wanted to grow my hair out, so I haven't gotten so much as a snip in almost 3 years. Of all the stylists I've been to in that time, only 1 has made me feel ok with that. Most try to push me into getting "just a trim". As a super awkward person, I am forced to sort've mumbleramble "no thanks no I am ok, thank you all set thanks it's ok". But on the plus side, this has cut down on both the amount of appointments and the total cost: My last appt was a full foil and blow out that came to $130.

On The Case for Having Both Parents Work

Annual cost of childcare in my state is over $16k. Again, a lot of the strife over this would be removed if this country mandated longer and paid maternity leave. Like, for example, every other developed or semi-developed nation in the entire world.

On 'Dad's Resume'

Sounds a bit like Bernie was expecting an influx of highly qualified young-ish people. In a town of 1k. Way outside a city. Working in a factory. For 40-50k. Right.

On Friday Estimate

@Heather Funk@facebook ya showers are the worst. I had anxiety about mine. I had a display shower (all presents on a table), so it really just consisted of brunch food + tons of booze. It was pretty decent! Good luck with your planning :]
