On The Cost of Flying Across the Country to Be a Guest at a Convention

@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

On The Year We Saved $10K: Working Like An Animal

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.

On Who's Going to Watch the World Cup at Work?

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.

On Dear Prudence: Mom Making Daughter's Wedding for a Do-Over for her Own

The first girl of my group is getting married and the whole thing has me feeling feelings and thinking thoughts about marriage and weddings but the thing that bothers me the most is that she keeps saying "i want X thing for my wedding but they won't let me". I think "they" is mostly her mother and it is sad. The end.

On Last Minute Gift Ideas: Manicures for Mother's Day!

Mani-pedis are my go-to gift for my mom. She loves them but rarely treats herself and if I give her makeup (another thing she never buys for herself) my sisters end up stealing it. I buy gift certificates from a spa so she can use them whenever she wants, and then she sends me pics of her beautiful nails! This year my sisters and I pitched in and will give her a Nine West bag, she always DESTROYS handbags, hope this one will last.
