One birthday, I received Pajama Jeans as a (super awesome) gift.
The first apartment I ever moved into was $900 a month for one bedroom, one living room, a small kitchen and a tiny bathroom, which I still think is a pretty great price by Hawaii standards! However, it was in a bad neighborhood, our neighbors had a terrible rat problem that the landlords refused to take care of, and pale white mushrooms periodically grew out of the bathroom. I will never move into an apartment again without taking pictures of everything first, documenting every landlord-tenant interaction, and getting all the landlord's promises of repairs put down in the lease. UGH.
@tuntastic Actually, four people living on $58,000, if you want to be picky.
For a cheap yet awesome do-it-yourself approach, I recommend the Orgy Proof Loftbed, despite its stupid name. Borrow someone's power tools, buy the wood from a good hardware store, and you end up with a sturdy, lovely loftbed that you can adjust however you want. It was a family project, and the bed itself has lasted seven years and is still going strong.
I do not have a uniform, per se, but I do have a tendency to exactly repeat my outfits once I figure out something that I know "works" well, from head to toe. Luckily I have a ridiculous amount of clothes, so it takes me the best part of a month to cycle through my outfits before I have to start doing laundry.
I don't use my snooze button, but I do set about seven alarms on my cell phone, all going off at different intervals and with different melodies. I feel like that's about the same thing, honestly, or maybe worse...
Sorting through your closet and re-evaluating your clothes is an excellent way to figure out your own shopping habits. Having lots of cheap stuff I've never worn says to me that, NO, ten dollars is usually not a good price for something if it is so weird I will never wear it. My overflowing cabinet says that I am pretty obsessed with humorous t-shirts and fancy summer dresses, and I should probably cool off on that for a while. Best-used items: the two thermal leggings that I wear almost every day of the week in the wintertime, my plain v-neck t-shirts, and both light-weight and heavy cardigans <3
Echoing everyone else to say, please write the next part, about your actual experience teaching in Qatar! :)
I am currently working overseas, with a lot of British colleagues (and Irish, South African, American, etc.). They pretty much all say they left because the economy sucks.
Baking, running, cats, looking at Buzzfeed and napping. What sort of longterm career can I build based off of that? Apply for a small business loan and open up a bakery? Maybe a bakery with treadmills? With a room with couches and cats for customers to pet? I know you're probably just joking here, but have you ever considered opening up a cat cafe??
