On The Beach: A Bargain or A Bummer?

I disagree about the low barrier to entry. State and town beaches around me charge some entry fee and there is always the parking fee. The spots on the street go quickly.

On The Young Professional's Closet

I'm the EXACT opposite. I own exactly ONE pair of jeans that I was gifted several Christmases ago. I used to work in a very corporate style business casual environment where I still dressed more professionally than most people in the office. I now look out of place in a casual work place that allows flip flops and cut off shorts. Only now I wear more of my clothes that are trendy versus my classic staples. I'm different because I love fashion and dress for myself at the end of the day. It just so happens that my "comfortable" is a. fashion forward or b. classically professional. I went two months without repeating an item of clothing when I started at my last job. That's not repeating outfits, that's not repeating an ITEM of clothing. I stopped because I was starting to get into the things that make me look slightly frumpy.

On When Waitressing Pays More Than Publishing

Waitress gave me the best quote that I live by to this day: "Dear Baby, I hope someday somebody wants to hold you for 20 minutes straight and that's all they do. They don't pull away. They don't look at your face. They don't try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms and hold on tight, without an ounce of selfishness to it."
