On Living In Fear Of My Bank Account

I like Cyptolect's idea. Is there someone in your life that you can trust who can look at your accounts for you and send you a weekly email/text with the most pertinent information. Such as your credit card is due on the 18th, your balance is 20$ might need to transfer, etc.

On The Cost of Long-distance Friendships

I'm in this boat except all of my closest friends live in the same city and I'm the weirdo who moved halfway across the country. So I don't feel $$$ solidarity with friends when I do go home to see them since I'm the only one who spend money. But we do watch Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder every Thursday and it's like we're in the same room watching it together. Also my long distance boyfriend and I watch stuff over Skype together. Not super romantic but it's a nice way to do something "together".

On How Wizards Do Money: Minerva McGonagall

I just read McGonagall's back story and wow she has such a beautiful and sad history. But it just makes me love her all the more. Another good one Nicole.

On An Interview With Someone Who Got Fired for Not Having a 'Hunger for Marketing'

I do think the interviewee is off about some things but I also believe the company is as fault too. If he was telling his supervisor that he was interested in writing and other stuff his supervisor needed to run with that and provided those experiences. They don't need to be super important things but you need your direct reports to know that you're listening to their needs and trying your best to make it happen. This helps them be more motivated for their day to day tasks. If he wasn't being heard he's certainly not going to above and beyond his job requirements.

On How To Get Our Belongings of Questionable Worth Across The Country

@Meaghan O'Connell Don't get bungee cords. Get ratchet cords, the bungee cords might not be be able to hold onto your heavy furniture but the ratchet cord will. I've moved long distances twice in the last two years. I've done full service movers and ABF U-Haul. U-haul was the best and cheapest. I hired movers at both ends to pack and then unpack.

On How Many Safety Nets Do You Have?

I think about this too and my decision is to raid my emergency savings to get me and my stuff-that I haven't sold-back to my parents house in NY. Right now I'm in a smallish town in Arkansas and job prospects and hunting would be much easier in the NYC metro area. Plus all of my friends and my family are back there so I wouldn't be leaving a current network of people so much as going back to one. Every time I think of this I think about how lucky I am to have that be the number option.

On Good Morning! How'd Y'all Sleep?

@garli are you me?! I have the exact same schedule where I have to be at work by 7am. But on Tuesdays I come in late to meet our night staff (the plant runs 24/7) so I usually go to bed around midnight and wake up at 7am. Tuesday's are my favorite day of the week, simply because it lines up with my natural sleeping patterns.
