Without saying too much- I work in the apparel industry and it is standard for potential customers to email me as ask for garment samples or for a sales staff to request it. Most of which we do not have on hand and produce especially for them. We know that we will "get paid" if an order is placed and consider that this is part of doing business.
I work in the fashion industry. i have seen some very out of place things at 10am meetings that sadly were likely not carry overs from the night before....
I noticed a lot of Friday (morning/afternoon) spending is included in weekend spending? Friday pre end of work hours is clearly still weekday!
CL this is interesting to hear an outside perspective on. I have a 2nd (or maybe its 3rd?) cousin who wants to be an opera singer. I dont know her well but this article reinforces what I have seen. Her parents are very very well off. They pay her rent (and everythign else) on the upper east side. she does small performances but nothing grand. They just like having an "opera singer" daughter.
it wasn't too long ago that young ladies of prom going age may have soon expected to be proposed to "for real" (marriage). I think along with the postponement of traditional adult milestones (engagement, marriage, babies) society finds a way to create alternative that fill that void. Its a way of creating drama and excitement (in this case without the commitment). Fancy senior portraits are like wedding photos only more self focused. Many of these individuals may not have professional photos taken (if ever) for easily another 10 years or more.
@ThatJenn wow. I cant imagine having to disclose my "outside activities" to my job. I do a variety of things out of work (from school to volunteering to a creative job) and try my best to keep it not secret but private. Sure they could find out some of it from google- but they wont hear it from me. I also make enough money that i don't "need" extra work- i just enjoy it and the disposable income/extra savings/stress reducing factor it gives me.
Not only are you not obligated to tell them (as long at it is not in direct competition) - I would avoid it at all costs because it may be used against you (openly or surreptitiously)
I wish you would have posted this 3 days ago.... We just got rid of (as it put on the curb) a perfectly good frame/mattress/boxspring. I get the bed bug thing (and not wanting a mattress from a potentially creepy internet stranger) but you could have had the frame at the least. for the record we got rid of the queen sized bad cause were moving and decided in the process new room will fit a king= which wil solve sleeping fights.
my thing- embarassingly enough- is to submit my taxes. Sadly i did them in january but never hit "submit" because i owe a few thousand dollars. Damn second job. i dont wannnnnnnnnnnnnna pay :(
@ATF@twitter BU was my dream school to! Only i was studying art. It was all from some stupid picture I saw in their program book. I got in and they would only give me a sports scholarship (very little) or an academic (also very little) but not both. In the end I went to my (highly regarded) state school on a FULL tuition scholarship that lasted 5 years + housing and book stipend. Best decision ever (even if the "southern" culture of the school was a complete turn off to me) I managed to graduate without ever having to pay for a single class. Because I did not have undergrad debt- when my scholarship ended- I was able to go to graduate school there (in a completely different subject) and earned two masters degrees. I had to pay for this but the cost was minimal.
