@pigforker I got an accidental super short cut a few months ago, when my stylist somehow took "just above my shoulders" to "chin length." I am about 50 lbs overweight, and I was worried that my face looked so fat, but I got SO MANY compliments on how flattering the cut was! And I did eventually start to love it. It's now grown out a bit, and I'm considering going and having quite a bit chopped off. (I've also lost about 10 lbs since then, so I'm less scared of the "fat face" now.)
My own financial upbringing almost exactly resembles this! Shopping sprees with mom, and being told to take the bags into my room, and not tell dad. Coming home from school to cute new outfits laid out on the bed for me (luckily my mom has great taste). These were not great lessons to learn about how to use money and credit cards. I found myself with almost $10k in credit card debt at 27 years old, realizing I had no sense of financial responsibility at all. I had to learn the hard way how to control my spending and finances. Now, at 30, I've paid down more than half of my debt, and while I still don't have a savings account, at least I'm not racking up any more debt, and I live comfortably on the money I make.
Those warm casing coming back at you are nothing to laugh about! I go shooting often, and last weekend when I was shooting a .22 pistol, one of the shells came straight back at me and went down my shirt, when it got lodged in the bottom of my bra. I now have a massive blister on the bottom of my boob, and burn tracks going down my chest. Lesson learned. Always wear a high necked shirt when shooting guns.
This concerns me on a couple of levels. 1)That kids don't understand that "Stop, Drop, and Roll" is for if you are ON FIRE. And, 2)that Logan also didn't understand the aforementioned information.
@Alexa Villaume@facebook Yeah, if he was actually living off the land and like, killing animals with tools made from rocks and sticks, then maybe I could have some grudging respect for him, but he's just living off the rest of society.
All of these costs could have been lowered considerably by taking the cat to the Humane Society for treatment, rather than an expensive vet. And the 2nd urinary blockage could possibly have been prevented by taking more care with the animal's diet. My cat got one UTI and I began putting powdered cranberry supplements in his food, which solved the problem. I say give the cranberry a try, and forgo the fancy prescription food for a while.
Can 7-11 make you a delicious egg and cheese sandwich every morning, and will the dude behind the grill secretly start making yours as soon as you walk in since there is a big line and he already knows what you will order, and now you don't have to wait as long? No. 7-11 will not do that.
@Logan Sachon Or, you could be like me and have a 401k from a job 7 years ago that you forget about and then when it's transferred to a new company, they cash it out without asking you, so you don't have to stress about the taxes that will come out of that amount, and get a check for $640 in the mail! Free money!
@John Thompson@facebook I think the problem is, people in Brooklyn think life in Manhattan ends above 14th street. I actually prefer to be above 14th street most of the time!
@Niko Bellic I guess that depends on what kind of NYC experience you want. If you only want to hang out in SoHo or the LES, then yeah, probably where you live in Bklyn is a bit closer. But that's not the entirety of the NYC experience. Manhattan has amazing things to offer, surprisingly, above 14th street! I know! I lived on the UWS for years and would much rather spend time there than downtown. Broadened horizons means living on the upper portion of the island doesn't cut you off from "life in Manhattan." Keep your Brooklyn, I prefer Manhattan and all of it's apparently "irrelevant" greatness.
