Definitely call them and check. For what it's worth, it won't affect your credit until it's 30 days past due. If you find that your payment cycle doesn't really sync up with your paycheck cycle maybe it's possible to avoid this in the future by moving your due date. Also you can save a lot of interest in the long run by paying your credit card bill as early as you can in each billing cycle, rather than waiting for the due date. Paying it sooner lowers your balance more quickly, and will reduce the amount of interest you're charged in the next cycle (assuming that this is card that you really don't use.)
I spent $0 this weekend, cooked using stuff I had in my fridge, drank a bottle of wine that was burning a hole in my liquor cabinet. It was nice. But I'm not sure what to do I got invited to visit SF for a few days after Christmas. I'd be staying on a friends couch and I will be on vacation from work that week anyway so it wouldn't be an expensive trip. I've never been to San Francisco but the plane ticket is going to be a lot more than I thought it would be. Like $200 more than I thought it would be when I was like 'YES I'LL GO' so I don't know what to do. I can afford the ticket but it is still a LOT to spend on any not-rent thing for me I can't get over the dollar amount. I should go right? Nobody randomly invites me to travel with them. I'm not that popular.
It's cultural. I don't want to wave aside problems with street harassment and misogyny but American culture is not big on complimenting women is it? Second, http://www.tutor2u.net/economics/gcse/images/demand_supply_excess_demand1.gif
My understanding of the corporate structure as explained to me by a TJ employee is that Aldi is TJ's parent company. The Trader Joes produce section is not great either. coincidence? I'm pretty sure that TJ food is Aldi food with fancier labels, and that Aldi is where all of TJ's dented cans wind up. The in store experience is nearly the same. Sometimes there aren't even aisles you have to wind around the store in a maze that ends at the checkout, and much like Trader Joes often more time is spent waiting to check out than actually shopping. The bonus to Aldi's one track layout is that you can ACTUALLY get in line and shop simultaneously which people try and fail to do at Trader Joes anyway.
Hmm. Thanksgiving Day: $20 train ticket to see family. Black Friday: I needed a hair dryer so I got the cheapest one I could at Rite Aid and paid for it half in change :$13 Saturday: nothing. Sunday: $8 drop cloth at home depot, $15 on groceries. To be fair, it's one of those 'poor til paycheck' weeks for me. I am paid on a biweekly basis and have had to hold my rent money for the last week and a half. Counting down to Thursday!
No, I've never had the luxury to be able to but if money weren't an issue I sure as shit would.
I manage interns at my job and always ask if they have forms for me so they can receive college credit. Most of them are doing it so they have more than 'footlocker' on their resume when they graduate. It's also an across the board requirement in my department that interns must be either currently in school, or have graduated within the last year. It seems a lot of times that this internship is the first place that a lot of students learn about dress codes and office etiquette - they learn to keep their desks clean, not be texting all the time, to work quietly so as to not distract coworkers, and to work without requiring constant supervision. If an intern wants to stay at my organization for longer than a semester they are moved to another department unless they're working on a long term project. My organization has also developed intern specific activities so that the interns can gain insight in to career development, and network with interns at other institutions. At the end of each semester I meet with every intern I supervise individually so they can ask me questions about job skills and careers. I always encourage them to use me as a reference when applying for future jobs and I also provide them with a written summary each project they have worked on for them to use when writing their professional resume. So I dunno, I feel like my workplace has a lot of guidelines in place to restrict habits of using interns as a 'free' labor force. It's made abundantly clear to each department manager that the interns are supposed to be learning and that their time in our office is intended to build upon their classroom experience. But it doesn't seem like this is the norm.
I'll eat whatever people leave in the office kitchen with a 'free' sign on it so my diet lately is mostly the complimentary bread that comes with soup from Le Pain Quotidien, day old crudites, and coffee. Left to my own devices I try to eat mostly whole grains and veggies but I figure if it's free it 'doesn't count'.
It's been a pretty cheap weekend so far but I have today off and am planning to use the extra time to run errands, pick up some fall clothes and things - I don't know there my tights all went! So far I've spent $40 on groceries. That's it.
I'm diagnosed as ADD and made my manager aware that I need a certain amount of quiet and privacy to help me get work done. It's awesome actually. They moved me from an open desk to a cubicle so that I am less distracted by people walking past me.My old seat was next to a bank of intern stations and ummm, interns don't really understand office etiquette, they were always chattering about nonsense, ask me project specific questions even though they're not in my department and I don't supervise them, or trying to suck up to me and distract me with conversations about cat videos on Youtube.
