@mariajoseh this is not counting taxis to and from the airport and other stuff. My cousin had a destination wedding this may and even if my mom paid for my hotel stay and meals and I did not buy a dress or a gift, it ended up being a very expensive weekend
@rhinoceranita yeah, my friend is getting married in 2 months. The costs (in Mexican pesos): *1,500 airtravel to cancún for the bachelorette party *3,000 all inclusive hotel for 2 nights for the bachelorette party *2,000 airtravel to my hometown for the actual wedding * 1000? for wedding gift I haven't bought * 250 for my sister, who will be doing my makeup. I still have not decided if I'll have my hair done in a salon. And I'm still looling for a dress, but will only pay 1,000 or less. Total: about 8000 or 660 dollars.
Love that the pic is form A Pair and a Spare, a blog I also read but very focused on DWYL. I think there's nothing wrong with trying to make a living doing what you love, as long as you know that nobody owes you anything and that it might just not work.
@dotcommie Mexico City doesn't have deliveries after 10pm. I learned this the hard way. I think it's a safety issue, because pizza places in my small south Mexico hometown do deliver til AT LEAST 11
perfect as always! I did NOT want them to end up like Felur and Bill
I wanted to keep reading forever! The whole series is great, Nicole.
I didn't save 10K (would've been extra hard, as I'm Mexican and earn in pesos) but Marne's story reminded me of me a few years ago. I was working two jobs, never went out and lived at home so I never spent any money. In the end, I had to choose between using my savings to travel or for a cross-country move, so I moved. Now I want to simply move to a different part of the city and I'm finding that saving much harder this time around.
Logan, so glad to have you back, love you interviewing skills!
this is relevant to my interests because I'm catsitting and Norman the cat has decided to shit on a potted plant and not on his litterbox :(
Oh, in Mexico most companies let employees watch at least the Mexican matches, but this year we don't have ANY hope of playing more than 3... In 2010 I was graduating collage and watched some games at my part-time job (meaning: didn't work at all those days). My grandfather was very sick and died that summer, but not before watching his beloved Spain win the Cup.
