Totally! “When I cannot bear outer pressures anymore, I begin to put order in my belongings...As if unable to organize and control my life, I seek to exert this on the world of objects.” ― Anaïs Nin
UGH so real I LOVED IT
I've never been a grad student, but when I read "+ If you have a significant other, shack up. Good for rent and the grocery bill" I was like OH NO GIRL don't make emotional/relationship decisions based on financial factors that is just a recipe for disaster.
I used to be a video store clerk, which is pretty close to being an extinct job. It was pretty fun - chatting with folks about movies all the time and watching movies for free. Nostalgie de la boue!
Ugh so many feels. I loved this - I identify heavily with the themes of family legacies of self-discipline and shame relating to money behaviors, 'ridiculous rules' and money issues as a mechanism for emotional control.
@Allison Yeah, What the fuck does that even mean? Intimidating to WHO? The writer of the article?
“Thanks, Beyoncé, but if we’re verbing, I think you meant ‘Bill Clinton’d all on my gown,’ not ‘Monica Lewinsky’d.’” My thoughts exactly!
@meganR Me too girl I feel that
