weeeelllll, but it was a fun year. and we got a kitten! and standing in the kitchen at 1am the night before the semester started you said, "so it begins," which, YUP.
Let's have a political discussion about publicly shaming nontippers vs. tipping $.50 on a cup of coffee and sitting around for hours!
OUTLIER: I am moving this weekend. The truck and movers are already paid for ($100ish and $450 respectively) but we will still pay for gas to refill the truck ($god only knows) and lunch, gatorade, and tips for our movers ($75). And then the neverending hemorrhaging of money that happens when you move, despite already owning two shower curtains and a trash can and all that other dumb stuff. Let's hope to keep it under $400.
chanel, check state law--you may be entitled to a reimbursement from your landlord for the CO detector. Where I live, state law requires the landlord to supply it.
@Mike Dang In that case, Mike, I would suggest an ETA visible on the post, so that everyone doesn't have to wade through comments to see that you've been schooled. I would also direct you to reread Claire Zulkey's piece on your sister site about drinking while pregnant/a person. http://www.theawl.com/2012/06/drinking-when-youre-pregnant For future reference, probably do not post about what pregnant women should or should not do, until you yourself have been a pregnant woman.
I haven't read hannah's book yet eeeeeiiiiither, molly, I'm terrible! It's sitting on my coffee table and everything. She does not deserve such terrible friends.
