The pants look great and the guava candies sound amazing. Sending lots of good vibes your way! Also, hope the tattoo turned out well!
@Ester Bloom@facebook I hated all the Michigan stereotypes. It barely snowed at all this winter, for example. And not all Ann Arbor dudes have atrocious beards. (Promise.)

1) MFA at UM = awesome. The English department in general has wonderful, wonderful events. 2) WELCOME TO ANN ARBOR!!! There lots of great things to do here. Let me know if you need any recommendations for places to eat, drink, or wander!
In contrast, there's the idea that living alone signifies financial independence for a lot of people? ("Yay, I make enough money so I don't have to have a roommate to help with rent?!")
@Nina B.@twitter Reread it - second wedding back in NJ? Who said that has to be less fun? Trust me, there will still be lots of good food, uncles dancing, Indian boys, and the whole hoopla. Attending that will be fiscally responsible AND fun.
Also, most Indian-American couples have a reception back in the States. (Because, well, not all friends and family can fly to India.) That might be more affordable to attend? I obviously have no idea what the situation is, of course.
I don't think I have lied to a significant other. Instead, I just didn't bring it for a while, until the relationship became close enough where I could feel comfortable talking to him about money. This was important, especially because he came from a fairly well-to-do family. Even though he was very careful with money and about exercising the privilege associated with it, it helped talking about my more tenuous relationship with money as a very middle-class college student with debt.
@lalaland Agreed! Similarly, reading the "My Last Hundred Bucks" column here also makes me double check my account and see what I did.
Out of the online tracking tools, what might be the best for young graduates? I'm assuming each site has a bunch of options.
