Is president-for-life a nicer term for a dictator? From that same wiki article: "Dos Santos has been accused of leading one of the most corrupt regimes in Africa by ignoring the economic and social needs of Angola and focusing his efforts on amassing wealth for his family and silencing his opposition. In Angola, nearly 70% of the population lives on less than $2 a day and yet he and his family have amassed a massive sum of wealth, with stakes in the leading businesses of the nation as well as international corporations." Yikes. Definitely reading that Fortune article because Gong Hainan sounds awesome.
I got business cards printed when I just started at my employer. They said "Trainee" and I think I still have 47 of the batch of 50, haha. My grandmother took two. I should get some updated ones printed now that they would actually come in handy. I spend a lot of time spelling my dutch name for french coworkers.
This is fascinating! I stayed in sort of a similar setup in D.C. as an intern, but more geared towards international students. It had separate women's and men's dorms and you could eat two meals a day there. I shared a room with two other girls. It was/is a really great place.
@viewfinder I suppose it's easier if 1) your house is an enormous mansion so you're not in eachother's faces all the time 2) your family is wealthy enough not to have the classic worries about money and the tensions that come with them
@Tinkerbelle Your house sounds awesome
I wonder how your parents feel about sharing their space for such a long time. For instance, you stated that sleeping next door to your parents isn't optimal for your sex life... The same probably goes for them!
@CeeEm If you give them two weeks notice they should not hold quitting against you! Don't feel guilty, just tell them on time and maybe prepare whatever would be useful (like, lists of upcoming things and unfinished projects) for a handover to a new hire.
Probably € 30 for dinner and € 60 for groceries My bf left a sweater at my apt and I shrunk it in the wash (didn't know it was wool!), none of the restoration methods I found online are working :( I feel so guilty! So I'll probably also spend whatever a replacement sweater costs
@MemphisBlues Why would this be an indication that he's in trouble? It's not like he's got to run for reelection.
Apparently the record I ordered and had sent to my bf's house is bent :( I guess I am complaining today!
