1. $140 so far, but I'll probably spend $100-$150 more. So let's say $300! 2. $50 3. $3 4. No! I had to log in to my bank account yesterday to see how much money I even have in there. It's been a confusing late fall/early winter. 5. N/A 6. Nope, I don't use credit cards! 7. Yeah, I think I did better than most years. Now just to transport everything home next week...
“Well, I am going to leave now.” bahaha DATING IS SO WEIRD. You pick practically random people and go get coffee/food/drinks with them to see if you like them enough to kiss them one day.
And here I am fretting about spending $70/week on food/groceries. It's true though, whenever I go visit friends in NY, they're always ordering food from Seamless. I don't think it's a huge thing in DC, but that could just be applicable to me and my group of friends. * * * “We have a customer who WunWuns Starbucks every day,” says the app’s founder, Lee Hnetinka. “The Starbucks is right below her building.” God, what decadent culture we now live in.
@OllyOlly Wow, I listened to 32,100 minutes of music this year on Spotify, and I feel like I listen to a lot of music on Spotify. Now I realize I am but a mere mortal among music streaming gods!
This year I re-started my Spotify premium subscription. I had it a few years ago, but never updated my card info when I got a new debit card. Not really sure where that money goes, though. I also went to quite a few shows and bought a few albums, both digital (bandcamp) and analog (vinyl, baby). I'm becoming a bigger and bigger believer in supporting artists I like/admire with actual money, and not just listens/reads/whatever. I think that's probably related to the fact that I'm an adult now and earn enough disposable income to finally support awesome things.
While I like the senitment behind this, I'm not sure it's that simple. I've found that those peaks and troughs in the drawing -- which we all have -- usually lead to the total adjustment of my goals. I agree: life happens. But I think those happenings are more wrapped up in/determinates of our goals than demonstrated here.
@Mike. A "What's not possible is to burden yourself with several hundred thousand dollars of student loans for a literature degree or frankly, a journalism degree and to wind up rich." "Not possible" is a pretttty bold stance. As Ellie Goulding puts it, Anything could happen, Mike A. Anything could happen.
@Theestablishment I second "possible but not probable for many," but also think it is downright impossible for some others because of the more or less inherent nature of ~the system~ itself (as you point out).
web site I've known and worked with a lot of college professors. Some are really cool, but there are also a lot of arrogant asses.
Also yes to this cover picture A+ good work.
