Motivating yourself to work on the dissertation is the hardest part. Because no one really cares but you! I had a good adviser and I made her set arbitrary deadlines for me, where the only real consequence was that I would feel like I had disappointed her. Which, she wanted me to finish but she was never actually disappointed. Finishing is also pretty anti-climactic. It is a handshake and maybe a celebratory lunch, then better have/get a job!
Our allowance was based on chores, but they were voluntary and each had a set amount linked to it. My parents were early on the gender equality train!
I enjoyed Maleficent!
This actually happen to my husband and me. We had thought his grandmother's money had been used up in caring for her, but it turns out she had A LOT of money, which was split between her 3 daughters. My mother-in-law then decided to give each of her children the max allowed before it becomes taxable, $14000. So we bought a new car. This was excellent timing as my husbands car had started to fall completely apart and was costing us a ridiculous amount of money.
I would have watched that version of Joe Millionaire.
I would say I boycott them, but that involve actually wanting their food. If I ever feel like fried chicken (unusual to begin with), there are so many options here (North Carolina) that Chick-fil-a falls pretty far down on the list.
I understand why people would be freaked out over lizards/bugs in their food, but I don't really understand why it is news. Other than the fact that people don't understand how food production works and things don't magically appear fully prepared? I wonder if kids are super confused about old cartoons where people bite into apples and there is a worm.
I really enjoy 1 thing! I get through my day by making a do to list in the morning. As long as I cross off 1 thing I consider the day a success. I also really enjoy Logan's writing style and this is a good place to see at least a little of it.
@aetataureate Agree with both of you! And I hesitate to pay $10 for a 2-3 hour movie.
I tend to calculate a cost-effectiveness for my games (I am strange), so I prefer longer ones. But that doesn't necessarily mean the story is 100 hours long. If a game is short but I want to play it over and over again that works too! For example, Bastion is a short game at the $15 price point, but is (1) amazing, and (2) re-playable both for the story and the way you play it. And the Assassin's Creed games have stories you can get through in a few hours but if you do everything (pirating!) it can be a much longer experience.
