funny story (funny, is that the word I want to use?), I know two friends who moved out of your east village building august 2013 because of a massive tiny-roach infestation. Wonder if you moved into their apartment!
I've put off traveling in hopes of growing an emergency fund. But recently I realized that it will be much more difficult to travel like I did at 23 when I'm 33, which is a bit scary...
I used to package up the bottles and leave them hanging on the fence when I lived in a two-unit building with a fence out front (where the garbage cans were). Now I live in a 15-unit place with a "garbage alley" so I follow the rules.
Affluent with…uh…cultural capital?
When my mom was getting chemo for cancer (this was back in like 1998), she stopped eating not-organically-farmed meat and drinking all dairy milk because her doctor told her to. I think it was because of bovine growth hormones or something. We also started eating a lot of seaweed salad for some reason. It was kind of funny because my mom, being in treatment, stopped cooking, so I started to subsist on a diet of processed foods. Likewise, the only thing she could really stomach during most of the chemo was a certain kind of Progresso soup (which now that I think of it had chicken in it, and probably not organically farmed chicken). So…cognitive dissonance.
Ha, I saw that. I think Need Supply is just trolling right now.
Costume: $17 very cheap wig, $2 t-shirt. Party at a docked pirate ship: $25 ticket (friend bought me a drink) Chipotle "boorito": $3 Dos Caminos margarita: $11 Mayahuel cocktail: $16 Bag of peanut butter cups: $6 TOTAL $80 could've been worse
I visited Portland ME for a wedding last summer and loved it so much. I'm sure this is a stock response, but I'm not sure about the winters, though.
Perpetually, slowly growing my emergency fund. Seems like it's taking forever… Sept: $2275 Oct: $2571 ($250/month plus some money from my "Keep the Change" match) My goal is almost $7k (hahaha ugh) but my Mint goal is $3375, which I should hit by January.
I almost always bring my lunch, so when I accidentally forget it, buying lunch feels like a treat. That's why I'm always so flummoxed by how BAD some of these lunch joints are. I feel like if I pay $8 for a sandwich it probably should be really delicious, and stuff like those pre-made Pret falafel sandwiches just aren't. They taste like nothing.
