On Let's Talk About Philanthropy

I struggle with this--I'm 32 and after a few years of nonexistent and then barely-there financial stability I'm starting to do pretty well. I do give to charity but it's in a pretty haphazard way. I wish I had a regular, more thought out plan of how to give but I don't even know where to start.

On How Wizards Do Money: Blaise Zabini

"Blaise understood that the wizarding world liked to divide itself up into boxes: mudblood or pure-blood, Slytherin or Gryffindor. The fact that adults put so much of their personalities into houses that they had been sorted into 30 years before had always troubled them." OMG this series is so great

On Witchy Feelings About My Index Fund

Oh man this was great!! My husband gets bonuses at his job, which is great, but they come in company stock, which suuuuuuuuuucks. If it were me I would sell it all as soon as he gets it but he gets all locked up in the "oh god what if it goes up/oh god what if it goes down" game. I HATE IT. And of course it's not doing great right now and we just have a bunch of money sitting there. AHHHHHHHHH

On So You Want to Quit Your Job and Open a Bar

There's an abandoned small movie theater (maybe 2 screens?) a few blocks from my house and my husband and I talk about what we'd do with it ALL OF THE TIME.

On More Thoughts on Shoes

@CaddyFdot I have also recently given up high heels! I sprained each ankle pretty badly within the past year (neither incident was high heel related, incidentally) and I just don't feel that stable or safe in them, really. It's oddly freeing to just decide not to do it anymore.

On The Cost of Fostering Kittens

I unofficially fostered a pregnant stray mama cat that tried to move into my friend's house after weeks of hanging out on the deck, and even that wasn't so bad! Since it wasn't affiliated with a rescue we bought litter and kitten food, but only mama eats and poops for the first 4 or so weeks so it was no big deal. She was a rockstar. It's one of the most awesome things I've ever done. It is hard to give them up, though--we found homes for mama and two kittens and kept two, so our fostering days are probably over.

On A Respite From Winter

Yaayyyy!!! I went to Mexico in July, so it was the same temp here as it was there, but it was still glorious (and also cheap).

On The Cost of Skiing

Yes! I love going on ski trips and just blowing through tons of books and spending lots of time in hot tubs/big bathtubs and drinking drinks.
