And you? What have you got planned?
Emily Gould has a terrifically honest post about her struggle with credit card debt and coming to terms with the fact that she is “a person who fundamentally loves to spend money.” She also walks us through her experience negotiating a settlement with her credit card company with the use of a fake uncle.

I was at lunch with a friend a few months ago when he looked down at his watch and said, “Oh I just got a message from [so-and-so]—I’ll need to dash off in 15 minutes.”
I have three different signatures that I use:
• My full name in legible cursive, which I use when signing personal checks and legal documents
• An abbreviated version of my name, which I use when signing anything digitally
• A scribble, which I use when I’m signing receipts for various merchants
A friend of mine recently told me about a new Sunday ritual of his: He and his girlfriend like to have a late breakfast, and then they skip lunch and have a dinner at 5:30 p.m. at a place of their choosing. There is never a wait, no matter where they want to go, he explains, and they get to be home at a reasonable hour before starting the workweek.
And how were your weekends?
What are your estimates?
