My physics and stats text book from the library in college during the alst week of the semester. I was pissed those things are 300$ a piece. I'm lucky I had a friend taking the exact classes or I would have been screwed.
This is absolutely disgusting. What is it with people being absolutely the worst. Ugh, I'm very glad you got out of there. I will be letting everyone I know to avoid this company like the plague.
Ester if you're really that overwhelmed by it let Ben manage it and have him update you monthly/quarterly and whenever he wants to add more or re-balance whatever you're comfortable with. My boyfriend and I do this because his eyes glaze over whenever I talk about large sums of money/investing/etc. So I do the money management and let him know what's going when he ask or when I want to make a major change. It works for us. I'm not frustrated by his apathy and he's not annoyed by me forcing him to constantly think about it.
When I lived by myself in NY I had steam heat radiators. I had no control over the thermostat but I'm lucky that my landlord never boiled me alive. It was always warm and comfortable. But I will say the first time they came on at night it woke me up and I thought someone was breaking in. When I moved in with my boyfriend the heater in out bedroom didn't work so we had to keep our bedroom door open in order to stay warm. Also there was a heated pipe in one of the closets in the living room. Which never made sense to me.
I make my own costumes from clothes I find at the Goodwill. This year I'm going as a lady 10th Doctor (I'm wearing a suit dress). I didn't keep track but I'm sure that all the clothes cost me about 20-25$ total. The most expensive thing was getting a sonic screwdriver, but I wanted one of those anyway.
Nicole I love this entire series. But I especially love it when you talk about the other side of the war. Said it before and I'll say it again all of the kids, cause they are they were anywhere from 11-17 years old when the Battle of Hogwarts happened, have to be suffering from PTSD or some other trauma. There are some serious things glossed over in the books. And I'm glad you talk about them here.
On GO GO HBO GO
Yass!!! I will definitely be putting my money where my mouth is! I've just moved and was seriously considering getting a trial offer of HBO with my cable just to watch GoT this spring. (Last year I had a friend with HBO and watched at their house)
I'm just wondering if the decision to not focus on economic equality has more to with the overall issue of poverty. Like it's not just lesbian couples who are poor but it's woman overall who live in higher rates of poverty and not just gay blacks but that there is a high rate of blacks living in poverty. So being LGBTQIAP is a subset of the overall issue of poverty in the country. I think it might have to do with a "winnable" fight for right now. Cause poverty is an issue bigger then that community.
I make something like this at least every other week. But as an omnivore I usually add chicken.
