Oh man, I...didn't know I should feel so much guilt about ice cream for lunch? Or dinner? Or both (yes, that has happened)? It's all my tum wants when it's hot out!
@totallyunoriginal @totallyunoriginal The cheap egg guilt! It is so real. Sometimes I like to add farmer's market eggs to the mix to really stress myself out. Also, yogurt tip! Making your own Greek yogurt is just about the easiest thing ever. Line a mesh strainer with a couple paper towels (or a dishtowel, but be ready to wash it asap), plop some cheap yogurt in and set it over a bowl for 12-24 hours and the whey will strain out. I promise it will be the best, creamiest yogurt ever and so much cheaper. Learned it from my (foreign) papa!
@la_di_da I have the $50 ikea bed! Fjellse is awful and wonderful. Awful because the sides bowed out horribly and the slats -and our mattress- fell through at least twice every night. Wonderful because my boyfriend found a non-broken fjellse on the street, took the non-bowed sides (NO BED BUGS) and replaced ours. And it was $50. So....bestworst bed?
Another vote for Dough! Can never turn them down at the Brooklyn Flea, ever. And I don't even like donuts!
@emilies One apple on the UES! Unless you want a Honeycrisp. Then it's less than half.
Mike's advice is the right advice... HOWEVER! I think it's important to learn these things for yourself. I was in the same position after college, turned down the dread-inducing position and ended up getting my dream job. Later, I left this job and thought I would have good luck again...and obviously didn't. But! Sometimes you have to hit the bottom because of your own choices to figure out your priorities.
@ThatJenn Mix brown sugar with coconut oil! It smells yummier and leaves your skin softer than st. ives, I promise.
@jfruh Refreshe! My boyfriend was quite the fan during our time in Safeway-land. By "was a fan" I really mean "drank it to feel better about his soda habit during our long stint of funemployment".
I have done A - twice! - both times with my boyfriend, and both to expensive-ish places (NYC making Boulder look cheap, but both being lots of $$). The key is going somewhere you KNOW PEOPLE. Let me tell you, when you move somewhere where do you not know a single person, shit is hard (I'm looking at you, Boulder!). When you move somewhere you do know people, your job chances (although maybe not dream jobs at first) increase tenfold, and you also have friends to prevent you from going crazy/ruining your relationship/spending all day dreaming about having a pet to keep you company (but you don't have the money!).
@anecdata I'm about to apply to an MPH in epidemiology program but I feel so! overwhelmed! because I know what I want to do but am struggling to figure out how to get there. So basically, did you find there was a lot of flexibility in careers? Specifically, in more social research?
