@yulya actually the worst part might be that my boyfriends father is a wealth manager person and has offered to manage it for practically free on several occasions. oh my god what is wrong with me?
I received a decent settlement after being in a rather bad truck vs bicycle accident not so long ago and that blood money is sitting in a savings account LAUGHING at me every time i log into my bank account online. Thinking about it makes me physically nauseous and want to die (the irony is not lost on me). I don't even have and IRA. and the worst part is that I am currently getting a PhD in economics ( that irony is not lost on me either).
congrats on the 5K! as former (forever at heart!) twin citizen this made me predictably homesick.
@LookUponMyWorks yay Durham x2!
happy trails and good luck! If you make it past the horse meat thing, Kazhak food is delicious! Also I recently found out that during WW2 my grandmother was evacuated from Moscow to Almaty for a few years.
@aesir my office is right next to an institute that has a lot of receptions throughout the year and we share a kitchen with them where they store the leftovers. "bring tupperware" is the best advice I ever got.
@Ester Bloom thats certainly not a reference you see everyday!
