@tw0lle I've been following the KonMarie method for the past few weeks and I agree with @NoName it's not wasteful. I donated all the clothes that "didn't bring me joy" to the Goodwill. Now someone else can put all that perfectly fine clothes I didn't like to good use. Much better then keeping them "just because".
@angry little raincloud I made 30 American dollars off my account last year. We ballin! :)
There are banks with okay interest rates out there. Synchrony bank gives you 1% interest on a savings account. So if you have 10k you get 100$ back at the end of the year. Which is significantly better then the 0% from Digit.
@MemphisBlues the mentorship was part of an engineering class. So it fallas into the realm of student/teacher which is just as bad as employee/boss. Also the mentor is a VC in Silicon Valley. The whole thing started at Stanford which is a huge pipeline for Silicon Valley so he definitely had influence over her potential success. As Roxane said in the article it's at worst someone in direct power over someone else using that advantage to get them into a relationship.
Those bridge programs are essential. My university had one and I attended it during the summer before my freshman year. I don't think I would have finished my major(engineering) had it not been for those resources and friends I discovered during those 6 weeks. My friend now works in a bridge program at the the same university for low income/first generation students. Having a support system when things get tough is essential for getting people through college.
@therealjaygatsby Can I join too? Those are my dream hours. My job is 24 hours and I come in from 12-8 one day a week and I love it. I work out in the morning and then head to work it's the second best day of the week!
My boyfriend did this in his old apartment saved 50$ a month on his electrical bill.
