On The Last (Profane but Awesome) Word on Weddings

@aetataureate @gyip @calamity @JNC Musings Factory It's a pretty small wedding with intimate friend groups, and it's not necessarily all couples--there are a lot of singles coming. Strangely, it works out that almost all of my local friends are coupled, and almost all of my college friends are single, so they would naturally be seated with/hang out with each other anyway. Okay, I DO feel a little bad about it, but if the choice is between giving the singles +1s or not inviting some of my closest friends, it's a really tough choice and I would rather have my closest friends there, and I hope because of the above reasons that it won't be unpleasant for the singles. It's a small wedding with little fat to cut in terms of the guest list.

On The Last (Profane but Awesome) Word on Weddings

I’m not plus-oneing every single person at the wedding because there’s no room, and sorry, but randos I don’t know are the first to get the cut. There’s not anyone at my wedding who would be outside of a friend-group so it’s not like they’ll be there alone with no one to talk to, and I do not feel bad about this decision… but yea, this is funny shit.

On The Young Professional's Closet

I like wearing work clothes. I think it provides a psychological cue of "This is work time." When I go home and change, it's "This is chill time" or "This is goin' out time." It helps my brain get in the appropriate zone. But, I don't have to wear suits on the reg, so maybe I'd feel differently if I did.

On Are Land Lines Worth It?

my mom keeps urging me to get a landline because if you call 911, they know where you are, which isn't always the case with cell phones. also, you can always dial 911 on your landline if your cell happens to be dead. i have not gotten one, though.

On How Ira Glass Does Money (For His Show, and For Himself)

The price-per-square-foot on that apartment is really bumming me out right now.

On Labor (Profs) vs Management (Administration) at Colleges Heats Up

Is it bad that I saw this article and thought, "they've got it pretty good if their boss only makes 4x as much as they do?"

On Pre-Nups: Maybe Necessary, Necessary, Offensive, or Harmless?

Ugh. Another thing to take care of before my end-of-summer wedding. How does this work, exactly? Does one lawyer do it for both of you? If so, where does their fiduciary duty lie? Does each party get their own lawyer? That seems unpleasantly adversarial.

On What Cake Are You Wearing?

We're going with a $75 cutting cake that serves 30-40 people and the dessert bar that is included with our dinner package. It'll be carrot cake with buttercream frosting, and the venue (which is a delicious restaurant) is baking it, too. Everyone is happy!

On Tell Me The Truth About Debt Consolidation

@Lily Rowan You don't necessarily have to be behind on your payments to go to credit counseling.
