Totally with you, nonprofit work ftw - just not the financial win.

On This Woman Does Not Want to Pay For You To Swim With Dolphins

I'm gonna go with if you're going to give something, think about the recipient and not yourself, you selfish brutes lol. I understand wanting to give something tangible, but isn't the point of supporting this new marriage to give them something they...you know want? And maybe it's just a cash gift without specifically saying "romantic dinner number 1" or something.

On A Father-Daughter Duo Answers Your Questions

I liked this! Dad, you're raining on the parade all right, but you can't always just massage over the potentially grim details! Meghan though: seriously loved your advice, I think it's so responsible to keep looking at each day and how it's helping you toward your goal. Not sexy to do grunge work day after day, but you know what IS sexy? Being able to feed yourself and pay your rent (still managing to find time to go after your passion too.)

On The Tricky Business of Criticizing Big Philanthropy

I'm in nonprofit and I agree. They are not all of comparable quality in terms of making data driven decisions, and more importantly, ensuring that they are in fact doing the most good in the best possible way. No business, nonprofit nor community-based organization is above scrutiny.
