@aetataureate Yep. For the amount that they charge, NYU ought to be a WAY better school than it is. And given that the Ivy Leagues tend to offer fantastic financial aid packages, there's really no justifying those kinds of outrageous prices.
Aha, this is exactly what I like to read about!
Well, if anybody is tired of cupcakes and doesn't want theirs, I'll eat it. That goes for pretty much any dessert anyone gets tired of, though. You need a key lime pie taken off your hands? I'm comin' over.
I can't take my eyes off of this cat.
My on-the-job catchphrase is "Slump Over."
This article just put me through a whirlwind of emotions. Mild irritation, then indignant rage, then a deep sense of gloom, and then somehow it all ended in insane, maniacal laughter that continued off and on for 15 minutes.
The snooze button has never made any sense to me. I hate getting up in the morning as much as anybody, but the only thing worse than waking up to an alarm is waking up, falling back asleep for 5-10 sweet minutes, only to be REAWAKENED by an alarm, at which point I feel more exhausted and disoriented than I did during the first wake-up, AND now I'm running 5-10 minutes behind schedule for getting ready while feeling twice as exhausted as before. Because of this, I ALWAYS spring out of bed as soon as the alarm goes off, no matter how difficult it is.
Well, if he REALLY wanted to live the minimalist lifestyle, he could always take half the contents of his bank account and give it to the United Way, and then move into a studio in Far Rockaway. I kinda hate everything about this guy, and I kinda hope something really dreadful happens to him.

@Beezus Honestly, as long as you're reasonably careful with money and are employed full-time, it's not THAT bad. I've been living in NYC for 8 years, and my salary at its lowest was around 24K and is currently at its highest at 40K, and I've always managed to make it work. You will probably have to live in a smaller space than you're used to, yes. But you can definitely have a roof over your head and food on the table and still be able to go out and have fun sometimes. The thing is, whenever people end up complaining that they can't afford to live in New York, I notice that there always seems to be an obvious reason why: either it comes out that they got hooked on taking cabs everywhere (don't ever do that!! Cabs should be reserved for special occasions or 3am rides to the airport, etc.), or it comes out that they're going out to eat 5 nights out of the week (don't do that!! Cook food! Go out to eat once a week! or find a cheap falafel place!), or it comes out that they moved to a neighborhood that's totally out of their price range (don't even look at anything in Manhattan! Don't do it! The boroughs are filled with apartments for you, and it's just a quick train ride into Manhattan anytime you want!). Anyway, it's completely feasible. Just use your brains, don't throw your money around like you're Warren Buffet or something, and you'll be a-okay.
