@acid burn I am talking about a restaurant that is called Jam. It's somehow become my arch nemesis!
I love The Current with my whole heart. I live nowhere near Minneapolis and I still donate money to them every year. But real talk: who is your favorite DJ?! Do you ever get annoyed when Mary Lucia talks about her cats and her appliances breaking? Do you LOVE Steve Seel?!
@j-i-a I...love Gossip Girl too much so I can say this much: Valley Girls was supposed to be made but never quite made it so there is just ONE episode of Valley Girls in the GG cannon. That episode is the best though. But I think about whether or not Lily and Kiki could have been friends all of the time and I've decided the future queen of the OC was too much of a hippie to be friends with the future Mrs. Van der Woodsen-Bass-Humphrey-Bass
But what about allll the scrambles at Juniors?!?!?! (In all seriousness, I haven't been able to find a regular brunch jam here. Everything but the restaurant Jam is the best.)
It's my duty to point out that I don't think Valley Girls was going to be a combination of The OC and Gossip Girl. It was supposed to be about the Rhodes sisters being the queens of California.
And this whole time I was thinking parking tickets in Portland are a myth because my friends are always letting their paid parking expire and never, ever get tickets for it.
@WaityKatie I feel both ways. As much as I feel like I spent more on college than I should have, I also feel that I made a decision and I should pay what I owe. HOWEVER, I think it was the responsibility of the adults around me to have a Real Talk with me about the decision I was making.
@sockhopbop Noel got the money from when he married Javier's sister. She needed to get married so she could be eligible for an inheritance and she tricked him into marrying her. But then he had one of his classic Dubious Morals moments and decided to stay married for the required time, and in exchange she gave him like $60k.
When I was 17 and applying for college, I set my sights on an expensive (and not even very prestigious) art school. I got in, I took out loans, and now I'm just chipping away at nearly $100k in debt. So, AB, I totally hear you about a decision you made at 17 affecting the rest of your life. Perhaps 17 year old me should have known better, but she didn't, and no one ever sat her down to explain the financial implications of her decision.
College. So basically, when I was 17, I picked one school and decided it was the only school for me. I applied. I got in. But, the thing is, it's not like I honed in on Yale and then went to Yale. I honed in on the art school that was good, but cost about $25k a year. So after my degree, I owed upwards of $100k in loans and I didn't even go to med school! I'm happy I had an opportunity to go to college, but I really wish someone would have sat me down and explained how much I'd owe and what that number would mean. Four years later, I've still barely made a dent in it.
