I'm not a writer so I don't know about book deal processes. However I have started a consistent meditation practice for about 6 months now. My happiness is blossoming even though the career I built for many years is basically impossible in my new town and I've taken a pay-cut and prestige-cut at my current job. Sooo yep, lucky for me/us happiness is never an external brass ring.
Memorable meals can be had at $30 or less. There are hot dog stands, falafel trucks, pizza by the slice places, even trendy food trucks and then there are restaurants in ethnic neighborhoods that you eat forever with a group of friends and you can't believe how little you pay at the end even with a generous tip.
On After I Go
After a friend of mine was in an accident and then coma. The reality of how I'd want to make decisions (DNR) and how my parents would make decisions became cleared. It's a pain to keep on top of. I've gotten complacent since I got married. Maybe that's my one thing. Its Thursday after all.
GenXr here, but I married a millennial cusp but my rising sign is a Virgo so that explains everything? Seriously though, I want to own and remodel but just like I married late-ish I think I'll own lat-ish. My husband just started talking of owning something besides "let's get a yurt". I will say a housing cooperative is appealing but I went with soup pot options. Who knows!
I am feeling this post! Personally, I try to create my cartoon self. What would a cartoonist dress me in every Sunday paper? This cuts down on morning indecision which is not a great way to start a day. Anyhow, your uniform says stylish professional competence to me. I think my uniform is sort of elfish clerk.
That's super interesting, but no talk of money on the billfold? Pricing labor, cost of artisan college, studio costs? I loved all the questions and answers, but I want the nitty gritty too.
This is the best advice I've read in awhile.
Well written report on a good hustle.
I pay about 17% of my take-home pay in rent with 3 roommates, one is my BF. I have roommates, but I have savings.
@Meaghano Thank you!
