On Majoring in Economics and Making Money

40k for English majors just starting out? Not when you graduated in 2008 with an English degree!

On Engineers in the "Power Class"

Actually, this is pretty accurate (in my experience). My best friend is a software engineer (not that he was good at it, his dad got him the job) and makes FOUR TIMES what I make and yet complains how much everything costs, bitches about the fact that he has to be at work at 10, and is obsessed with making money and investing. He's actually become pretty insufferable lately, which stinks because he's been my best friend for almost 15 years.

On Other People's Offices

@Meaghano I can't either. Correction tape is not really a thing I would take up willingly.

On A Call To Abolish Employment Credit Checks

So when I started at a new company 1.5 years ago, they mentioned they maybe would look at my credit history (I knew they would pull my criminal history since it was in healthcare admin). Totally assumed they wouldn't because... I don't know, I just assumed they wouldn't (I didn't think this was actually something people did). Well, I pulled up my 3 free credit reports last week and they HAD checked! Color me surprised (and relieved my credit score is super good).

On $45 a Month for a Bottomless Cup of Coffee

@garli HA HA! Yeah, I'm trying to do the exact OPPOSITE of that right now. Unlimited fruit cups? That's not nearly as appealing.

On $45 a Month for a Bottomless Cup of Coffee

I am one of those obnoxious morning people that doesn't drink coffee at all! So I would totally be down for an unlimited cookie subscription, please and thank you.

On Monday Check-in

@LookUponMyWorks It pretty much was. There were other people in period dress there too, and it was kinda magical. Plus the weather was GORGEOUS and I can think of no better way to spend time outside. If you want to see their costumes: http://tennesseevintagebaseball.com/
