On What I’ve Spent to Move Into a New Apartment

@beatricks@twitter I feel like, if you're moving that far, just sell everything and start over. I moved 8000 miles a few years ago and narrowed my possessions down to whatever could fit in two suitcases. It was nerve-wracking at the time but once it was over I felt so free.

On Boozin' on a Budget

But if you’re really stingy and don’t mind being just a little bit sketchy, you can also bring your own alcohol to bars, restaurants, music festivals that charge exorbitant amounts of money for a Coors Light, etc. Remember—flasks are your friends—to doctor up a soda purchased at said locale or to take furtive nips in the bathroom. No. Do not do this at bars or restaurants. If you can't afford alcoholic drinks, drink something else or stay home. [edit: what Pain said!]

On Haircut Negotiations

@MuffyStJohn Recommendation of a place to avoid: I got a horrible, horrible haircut at Trim in Adams Morgan. Totally disregarded what I asked for, made me look like Nancy Grace.

On Advice From Commencement Speeches

The best advice I received from my commencement speaker was "Do not donate money to your alma mater," which was implied by the University President's selection of himself as commencement speaker. I did not attend the ceremony.
