THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. All this juicing and cleansing nonsense. Ridding your body of "toxins." WTF does that word mean and HELLOOOO it's called your kidneys. If you need a smoothie to do that for you your body is not doing its job. SCIENCE.
@Allison Every recipe ever needs triple the garlic!
I'm in the same boat with taking fewer artistic (I'm an actor!) risks until I pay off my debt. But I'm on the cusp of a big day job career move that will help me pay down my debt in just 2-3 years. It will be worth it to have more freedom and be set up for financial security later.
Thanks to "fast fashion" I have no idea where to buy affordable, well-made clothes anymore. *cries

This is how I feel about Chicago's new privately-owned Ventra CTA fare system. They have no incentive to care because we HAVE to use their service, regardless of its suckiness.
@amglory89 RIGHT! I'm a girl who can go out for a spendy $100+ dinner once in a blue moon but where on earth is that $1200 going? I'm honestly baffled.
Hey Billfold-ers! Thanks for the advice last week to GTFO from my job at my rapidly declining company. I started my job hunt and I've already had a successful phone interview with a follow up in-person interview scheduled next week. Yay progress! You are all swell people.
@garli There IS justice in the world! Go you. That's great.
