I'm a no-breakfast person who tried to start eating breakfast, and felt terrible all day. My stomach just doesn't like food in it first thing in the morning. Now I eat oatmeal as a mid-afternoon snack and feel a lot better. These are perfect for that!
At my work (apparel manufacturer), my biggest problem is people stealing clothing samples. Usually, once the selling season is over people are free to take any extra samples we have lying around, but sometimes when we have an extra-cute style they try to speed up the process and take them before we're done with them. No bueno.
@cuminafterall Yeah, they do, unfortunately. I have an office full of women who are a perfect size (fill in number), but I work in fashion production so it's a self-selecting population.
@DarlingMagpie Also, all their clothes were insanely expensive gorgeous designer stuff, but they implied that Lorelai was an excellent seamstress so PLAUSIBLE. I love that show.
THIS is relevant to my interests! I will watch any show that has good costume design, even if the show is not that great. My favorite show for costuming (which is also a good show) is Perception on TNT - everyone is always dressed beautifully on that show. http://www.tntdrama.com/series/perception/photos/
I'm turning 40 in a couple of months and I'm pretty happy about it. I feel like I'm finally getting the hang of this "living" stuff and most of the external pressure to succeed in relationships/career/children is off. Now everyone "just wants me to be happy" and I can do what I want. Also, I don't have to look back on my younger years and feel like I peaked too soon.
The concept of "enough" is problematic for me. I'm very comfortable, have a great job and a modest income. I have no desire to own property and live pretty happily on very little. My fear is that if I just become content with what I have, I'll have no desire to aim for anything higher. Where does dissatisfaction with one's life play into achievement in general?
So, this is just saying that billionaires can get away with hoodies because they're billionaires. Groundbreaking.
@jquick As a person with a STEM degree who no longer works in STEM (thank the universe), this is not the cure-all people seem to think it is, especially if you are a woman. The hours + gender discrimination were not worth it for me to stay. Also, people who work in STEM have employment problems all the time, too. Not a guaranteed income.
I remember F. Scott Fitzgerald writing about a family being so wealthy that they "no longer had friends, only retainers".
