I'm so sorry. Thank you for sharing your story so honestly.
When I was in college, I signed up for a long-term medical study that required me to come in every month or so for a pap smear and to take samples (I believe they were tracking HPV). Pay was $50 per session, I got to find out afterwards if I had any cancerous cells or STDs, and the people were quite nice! On the downside, it was always awkward giving my sexual history to a stranger, and getting a pap smear is no joy either...
Why are the numbers for Florida so high???
Hair. Why do we care so much about hair??? Why is some hair dirty and some hair sexy?!! Is it a weird mammal fixation? I'm fairly relaxed on the hair-removal spectrum, but I do shave my legs and armpits every two or three days, bleach my upper lip occasionally, and I know that I take a bizarre pleasure in plucking random hairs out with my tweezers. I've never been waxed or gotten a Brazilian, but I do even trim with scissors as well if I think I'm going to get lucky. We are such strange apes.
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...
