I am glad people are pointing out the POC aspect. You get more thrown at you when there's more ammunition. Ni hao Kai Lan? Made up Asian sounding words? I've heard 'em all.
@fletchasketch Yeah but is your story being told? That's my point, they're not.
@Mike Dang I feel like the ratio of Mike Dang-type stories are like 15% to 85% like the one above. ETA: The article title seems misleading. There's not much how.
Are there any stories of being on your own financially, no help, student loan debt, and still making it out alive? Bueller? I agree with pengu1n to say that maybe we're only reading about a certain type of story, one that's not "my parents bought me this" but "my parents heavily helped me." I don't want to begrudge people their station in life but how far off base are we from the "NYT version of the Hunt?"
On Fall Haul
I BOUGHT THREE PAIRS OF SHOES LAST WEEK. NO REGRETS! One of the pairs were Derek Lam booties that were at a steep discount from $895 to $200. I am in love.
@thegirlieshow Congratulations on a wonderful username, avatar, and no credit card debt!!!
I think the credit card debt thing is due to the fact that it is much harder to get a credit card now than say, ten years ago.
HAVEN'T EVEN READ IT YET, BUT YES. AW YISS.
CASHLESS TRANSACTIONS ARE (MY) KING.
We all have so many questions about these two weddings haha. No food?? No vegetarian option?? I agree with everyone that these are pretty standard things at most weddings nowadays.
