Guys, I'm not doing it this month because I went on an impromptu roadtrip to Milwaukee and Mistakes Were Made... On the bright side, I found an apartment that is $350 cheaper than the place I was originally going to move into in August! Hopefully this will help reduce the amounts for next month...
I seriously don't understand how ambulances could be so expensive. I was involved in a hit and run last year, and the ambulance was the most expensive thing on my bill. (Lesson learned: just take a cab if you can!) I also just received a collections notion from the city of Chicago for $80 for "emergency care". What the hell is THAT? I paid my hospital bill...
NO WAY! I Know what I am doing at work tomorrow...
First, that first apartment sounds like a dream come true for me. Second, how do you get chosen to do one of these? It sounds like fun, but I'm not internet famous.
This just sadly reminds me of how small the Brooklyn apartment I will be moving into is. Sigh, I'll miss your spacious and affordable apartments, Chicago.
Jack: Meanwhile I just got worked over by my Trinidadian night nurse. I made every mistake you can in a negotiation. I spoke first, I smiles, I negotiated with myself. If I had done that during a mock negotiation in business school, Professor Widmer would have spanked me in front of the whole class. Bare bottomed. Liz: Okay, but it's harder with someone like a nanny, right? There's an emotional component. She takes care of your baby. Jack: Lemon, you had just a structural analytic insight. Professor Widmer would have given you a "good job" spanking! Liz: What is "business school"?
I hate when people call renting "throwing away money." You're paying a) for a roof over your head, and b) sweet freedom to leave whenever you damn well fell like it. That's priceless.
Eighteen (18) more days of real work in a real office. Then, I enter the world of graduate school. One (1) part-time job needed to pay for food, preferably at a bookstore in New York (but I'm not too picky about what I do). Suggestions, anyone?
This is a fantastic way to endear me to bankers. Good work, Chuck!
yes, yes, a million times, yes.
