On Broke Young People Will Always Have Paris

I wish I had a grandparent from a country in the EU so that I could apply for citizenship in that country, and thus live there or elsewhere in the EU. Alas, most of my family has been living in the United States for too many generations, the exception being my great-grandparents on my grandmother's side, who came to the U.S. directly from Poland. I'm like 80 percent sure that great-grandparents don't count when you're applying for citizenship, though; it needs to be grandparents or closer.

On Lunch Spots and Budgets

I used to bring my lunch 100% of the time, but lately it's like 50%. I've definitely been spoiled by the better food I can find around my office (alas, it does cost more). I usually hit up Sweet Green (Kale Caesar Salad, y'all) or Roti, because they're good and quick. I'd also go to these places on the weekend though (not that I have), so I'm not sure if they count. Pretty sure both places are specific to the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast/Chicago.

On "Is There Anything More Ironic Than Coming to Live in Des Moines"

@thegirlieshow Yeah, that's generally true, but not always. You can find quite a few diverse, left-leaning small towns if you look. I'm just trying to say it's still possible to live in a small town if those are your only prohibiting factors. That is, not all small towns are the same.

I live in Columbia Heights but I am not The Kale Thief. Also, I've had way more experiences like that described in the story than not. I've lost many things only to have an upstanding citizen return them to me.

@apples and oranges Clearly DC should take back the promised land from Virginia.

"I am a millennial and I want to live in a small town." - Bumper sticker I'm printing. Honestly, the only thing keeping me in a bigger city right now (DC) is the fact that I don't have a car. Otherwise I'd move to more ruralish Virginia or West Virginia. I'm saving up right now :D
