On Do You Get Annual Checkups?

My insurance pays for annual exams, and my doctor's office sends me reminders to schedule appointments. It's in my best interest to get that exam, not anyone else's, plus if it'll cost me nothing and just take an hour and a half of my morning, I'll do it. Ditto with how men don't have a carrot to get regularly screened- UGH.

On Turkey Planning

I have a fun tradition of celebrating Tgiving with my best girl friends from high school (we made a funny pact that we would celebrate throughout college because we went to high school abroad and most of our families at the time were still overseas). We're doing it in my apartment and I already ordered the turkey off of Freshdirect!

On Money and Tourists

I understand your irritation with white people prices, but you have to understand that to them, 2 dollars to them means a lot more than 2 dollars to you.

On How to Make Money by Moving Abroad

I grew up abroad because my father was an expat my entire childhood (and still now!). The benefits of living abroad as an expat are boundless especially if you work for a multinational corporation (banks, oil, natural resources, etc). Subsidized housing, private school for your kids is often paid in full for by the mother company, the 'worse' place you live in you can nab free trips back home, if you have to renew your visa you can go on another free trip...I know these benefits also run slightly true for teachers in international schools. Also, you end up racking up a ton of mileage/hotel points so it even pays vacations. It lead for a wonderful and perfect childhood.
