@jalmondale I love the East Bay! As soon as I can get work in the Bay Area, that is where I am going to live!
I think I made like $3/hr as an assistant at a plant nursery in 1999, which is $4.28 now. My first real full-time office job didn't come until years of temping after college, and it paid around $22K in 2008 NYC dollars, which was (and still is) a total ripoff, especially for the amount of work I did.
@pterodactylish Me, too. I look at the beautiful, cheap homes I could own right now in my hometown versus the beautiful, insanely expensive homes I will never be able to own in the Bay Area. I can't even look in NYC because it's too depressing.
@seakelps If you're in NYC, GrowNYC has a booth for textile recycling at a ton of greenmarkets all over the city: http://www.grownyc.org/clothing
This is the best one of these yet!
@ThatJenn I just laughed for a solid minute about "Florkla." Oh my god, I am so tired. Amazing.
@thegirlieshow Mine is through Liberty Mutual, and is cheap and good and they answer all my inane questions because I don't understand insurance policy jargon at all.
@MissMushkila Same here. I worked in food service throughout high school and college, and to my knowledge, nobody ever spit in anyone's food, no matter how shitty the customer was.
On A Father-Daughter Duo Answers Your Questions: Should We Use Our Money to See the World Now, Or Save for the Future?
Everyone who is a world traveler: can you tell me how you do that? Anytime I go anywhere, I do a ton of research and still don't know where to go/stay/what to see, etc., and with international travel, the culture differences and the amount of time I would need to take off from work scare me off the whole thing.
