On Brokers I Have Known

@boringbunny We all have varying levels of chill when it comes to ignorance. Mine is pretty non-existent.

On Brokers I Have Known

@scn231 Are you white? He kept emphasizing ASIAN while only looking at her. I'd be annoyed at the least. Just b/c I'm Asian it doesn't mean I need lots of Asians living around me to make me feel comfortable (which is probably what my college thought since all the Asian students who got random roommate assignments got paired w/other Asians). It's just annoying as hell and something you don't ever think about if you're not a person of color.

@burdock @PicNic thank you both! I live w/in walking distance of JP Knit & Stitch but I've heard less than stellar reviews of them and their classes. I actually work near Gather Here so I'll definitely check them out!

On When the New Music Stops

This is pretty true for me, sadly. I'm almost 36 and I only hear of new music when I'm in a store or see an ad on TV. If I like something I fumble around on my phone to shazam it and then I google the band. About 20% of the time I'll make an effort to look them up on Rdio but I usually forget about it.

On Should You Treat Job Interviews Like Hostage Negotiations?

"I mean, the salary history question comes fairly early on in the interview process, right? Long before any interviewee can reasonably assume he or she is being made an offer." I wish! In my experience it often comes after the phone and in-person interviews, which is so far late in the game, imo. I'd rather know during the phone interview so that neither party wastes time. I've gone on 3-4 rounds of interviews before w/out anyone mentioning salary and I never bring it up first b/c you're not "supposed" to. Also, I would never say any of those things that Voss suggests.

@Marille I want to echo this question, too (and the only thing I've sewn was a stuffed animal in the 7th grade! (it was a duck)). I actually live in Boston and was thinking of taking a class but in the past I've picked up some expensive hobbies only to abandon them months later (hi knitting supplies under my bed in my parents' house). Also: "I don’t drink, take any drugs, wear makeup, belong to a gym, or particularly want to see any movies right now. I’m not denying myself anything, I’m just absolutely no fun." Can we be friends?

On Do 1 Thing! Because Things Are Good

@amglory89 Thanks! I'll be sure to ask about that when I call or email a few places.
