My official winter wish is for this series to never end.
I'm always glad to see a range of personal finance essays, and not just "I made all the *right* decisions, you should too!" ones. Everyone makes different decisions for different reasons, and it's all about deciding what's important to you. :)
@Katni MPLS is still 5 hours to Cedar Rapids... I think Chicago is 4 hours. People were surprised when I wanted to stay in the midwest for college, but flights are definitely part of it. And I've stayed in Minneapolis after college mostly because it's a great city. (I currently live in MPLS with family in Dubuque, IA).
I wasn't going to do any shopping at all and then I saw that Loft has a 50% off everything (including sale) items. But I got sensible things! My current black cardigan has a hole in it!
@moreadventurous CL ads of today: Wanted: two roommates. $600/mo each, hulu plus and hbo go subscriptions preferred.
@HelloTheFuture Unless one becomes a Hogwarts professor. Or is that just getting married to the institution?
I feel like it's only "cheating" if you consider the holidays a competition. Since they're not, whatever works for you and the people you celebrate with is fine.
Here for wizards and witches on Tumblr.
Augh Samantha's makeover frustrates me. The words on the "meet Samantha" page are "kind, loyal, and sensitive." While Samantha eventually became those things, she was definitely *none* of those things during the majority of her books. I loved Samantha because she was bossy and a bit uppity, and her character had a great arc. Basically I am here for the old canon.
I saw the first apartment and thought MACALESTER! A friend lived in that apartment, in one of the sun rooms. Still a Mac house. :)
