@Stina @all Thanks, guys! I was like "Bye, Felicia!" to that dumb loan. And my going-out-dancing-with-friend plans just got confirmed so I will definitely be celebrating!!!
@Tripleoxer @Allison Seriously! Especially if he's moving with you!! What the heck dude.
@Stina You need to hit the liquor store along with the grocery, and get you something with a high proof so you don't have to tackle cat washing sober. Maybe slip some whiskey to the kitties too?
@kentuckienne Can you possibly wait until January 30 or 31st to buy? Salespeople are going to be eager to give you a better deal then so that they bump up their monthly sales numbers. Also don't act too excited - time to practice your poker face! Don't finance the taxes and fees! Also, this is a fun read: http://the-toast.net/2014/07/11/how-to-buy-a-car/
@annecara sorry to hear about your loss. I hope getting to see her one last time brought comfort.
TGIF indeed! I had the one of the best dinners of my life last night, which set me back a bit, and today I'm paying off one of my student loans!!!!!! So, I will try to keep things in check this weekend. Student loan: $500 or so Groceries: $20 Favorite diner: $12 Movie matinee: $12 May go out dancing with a pal: $20 And filling up the gas tank: $20 Total estimate: $584
@sherlock Spiro is a high blood pressure + heart failure med. It is potassium sparring, which means it makes some folks pee a lot! Using spirinolactone to treat acne is basically off-label, but very common and safe (for most people)! I don't remember why exactly it works, but if your acne is commonly hormonal and/or you have PCOS, spiro is a real godsend.
BC pills + Spirinolactone have been my dermalogical saving grace. Topicals, antibiotics, etc, did not do much for me. Best topical I did ever use was/is Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. $17 and worth every penny for me!
@sea ermine Seconding this! I found volunteering to be an absolutely brain-saving activity while I was unemployed and underemployed. It got me out of the house, presented interesting challenges to solve, and helped quiet the little voice in my head that kept saying I was useless.
