I'm really sad about this because you've been my favorite writer on the Billfold lately. I will definitely be following you to The Cut. Congrats and good luck on the move to the best coast! Billfold, I still love you.
@Erica I second this for the billfold piece I had published!
@ThatJenn definitely sounds like the right decision. As the wife of a grad student, I can't even imagine trying to force that choice on my spouse. I just feel like we've had to sacrifice so much to make school doable, that all I want is to give her the support she needs to graduate.
@scn231 eh, it's not just non-progressive people who do this. in a lot of ways i think it has more to do with the messaging women receive to devalue themselves/their careers in favor of marriage and family. i'm married lesbian and my wife is a feminist. yet, she is in grad school and we often put her schedule first since i 'only' have a 9-5.
@andnowlights yeah, i feel pretty similar to this.
@HelloTheFuture i totally have done #1 multiple times. @Meaghan O'Connell mail those books media mail, it's really cheap.
This post is forcing me to shill for SquareTrade insurance for your electronics. Look into it when you get a replacement! Cheaper than the phone company insurance and better.
Link to where we can get these, please?
@LookUponMyWorks that's exactly what i was going to say! that's how i got around this myself.
i feel like this only works for older people. 30 is too young for a uniform
