@EvanDeSimone Ugh, my one thing today was also order more checks because I am completely out...and I am super annoyed about this because I am moving in two months, and will have to get new checks again!
oh man, I feel like I could have given this interview (minus the trust part) (and I just finished paying off my grad school loans!). One thing that is really nice about working at university is employees get tuition waivers for all classes, so I have started taking business courses, just in case we someday need to have more of an income then a Phd and MFA can provide us.
I hardly ever post, but I love the one thing posts! Now, I save up all my One Things for Thursdays and it makes doing them sooooooooooooooooooooo much better (and they actually get done!)
@sherlock That was exactly my takeaway from it. I work with a lot of dancers, which seems pretty similar to figure skating, where you really need to start training as a little kid and the financial commitment from parents seems enormous.
I will be making my final student loan payment on February 1st! And then I will be drinking champagne and eating a steak.
Gosh this is fantastic and so stressful! I also work in theatre, and while I've been very lucky to have full time employment in my field with benefits, its not very well paying and there's not a lot a chance for upward mobility.
@mormo Next time put it on your wish list or shopping bag. After it goes on sale it will disappear from the website, but will stay in your bag at an even lower price. I got a far too expensive shower curtain (and lots of other cute things for reasonable prices) there for $30 because I was willing to wait a while, and if they sold out in the mean time, I rationalized that it wasn't meant to be.
