I'm always amazed at the hesitation I feel when asking people how much they pay for rent.
@BornSecular Maybe you could get your doctor to write a note for the exercise ball, saying you need it for your health? Pretty ridiculous that employers would not allow such tiny changes to help their employees be more comfortable and healthy (SHOCKING, right?). With the health improvements that standing apparently provides, installing more standing desks/what have you would save them money in the long run in terms of health insurance payments. Plus, you know, HAPPIER people.
What. I. Would. Do.
Welcome, Meghan! You sound lovely. Also, your blog is hilarious.
Excellent photo choice. If you are into 'how the best do their things best' articles, you should subscribe to barking up the wrong tree's weekly email. It's full of that, plus even better stuff.
Great article title.
Awesome article! In Buenos Aires, a jarro (espresso) will cost 12 pesos Ars ($2.20) and a cafe con leche (coffee with milk) is 15 pesos ($2.80). (Only if you stay away from the center, though, where you can easily pay $4-5 usd for a takeaway coffee!)
@seaermine Word word word. Couldn't agree more.
Giving to charity is hugely important to me. Even giving $5 to my coworker's kid who is doing a Walk for Hunger is better than nothing. With the help of online fundraising sites like Fundly and IndieGoGo, it's easier than ever to set up small-reaching charitable efforts-- and even small donations like $5-20 can go a really long way. I don't have a ton of extra money to spend, but I rarely think twice about giving it away. If a cause jumps out at me or if it's a good friend, I want to support their efforts-- they are changing the world. It's like an investment in improving the world's awesomeness.
Great interview! Lovely guy, good questions.
