On My Career As a Telemarketer Has Affected Every Job I've Had Since

I realize this may sound backward, but I'm eternally grateful I had a horrible first job experience. It taught me really quickly what my non-negotiables were, and how I'd like to be treated. I got out of that hellhole after 10 months with a clear understanding of what I would and wouldn't put up with for future jobs, and a better understanding of what to look for and ask in interviews in order not to have that happen again.

On Time Is a Flat Circle Every 1 Thing We've Ever Done or Will Do We're Gonna Do Over and Over and Over Again

My one thing is to cancel my gym membership, because it's starting to get nice out, and I'd like to save $68 a month.

On 1 Thing Actually Is All Around Us

My one thing for today was to try to update my health insurance policy for 2014-- done! Bonus for hauling it to Walgreens to pick up safety pins for piecing a quilt I'm making.

On What Did You Spend on Your Last Wedding Gift?

For a family member's wedding I did not get them a gift, but I did dog-sit for them for three weeks while they went on their honeymoon, so I was kind of counting that as my gift. I still feel bad I didn't even give them a card though.

On Do You Have a Uniform?

I laughed at this post until I remembered that I own 12 cardigans (in every available color the store offers) and I'm wearing one right now.

On The Quest for the Perfect Bag

@Michelle YES! That's exactly the type of quality/style/workmanship I'm looking for. Etsy's great but sometimes it's a time-suck. 2 hours later and you realize you've browsed over 100 pages.

On The Quest for the Perfect Bag

Has anyone ever had any luck or experience buying bags off Etsy? I like the idea of a handmade, quality bag. Doesn't have to be name brand to make me happy!
