@ThatJenn I also really love this website and it is so great to have both Mike and Logan's perspectives. I am the same way with non-structured work - I am always really good in a structured setting, I do well, never late, etc. But I'm a terrible self starter. Bad at meeting deadlines that feel flexible. So I can relate about the difficulty of working from home. Sometimes things like Pomodoro timers help me. If I were trying to freelance full time again I might set up to do those regularly instead of just sometimes. Or even just things like trying to schedule a morning meeting - with Mike, with an interview, even with a friend for coffee - puts you in start mode.
Props to Logan for actually reading the email. I delete them when I see the subject line.
@stuffisthings Probably because St. Yahoo does trade with a lot of other countries even though they don't have the US's most favored nation status anymore.
Tonight: catsitting for a friend, ¥1000 on some groceries for a cake I need to make. Saturday: Flea market (raising money for the critters) then birthday party. ¥3500 for the meal and all you can drink for two hours, then probably karaoke say ¥2000 more. Chipping in toward friend's birthday present (new snare) ¥1500. Sunday: low key. Cat sitting. Maybe a walk/bike ride around the neighborhood, coffee, geocaching. Probably ¥2000 for weekend transpo and a coffee. I'll probably buy a dress or two at the flea market for ¥300 because I can't resist cute ¥300 dresses. ¥10000 or so, or right around $100.
@@fo Or the South, or the Great Plains in places like Oklahoma or Nebraska. I just chose Texas because there are a lot of rich people there in certain sectors. But thanks for clarifying that actually RWP=northeastern WASPs.
@@fo I think RWP in say, Texas (where I was born) would not blink at those double first names that you mention, which are pretty common for boys and girls (Lee, Ann, and Lynn are a few more second names that are quite common). And Madison doesn't even raise a ripple for me.
@Fig. 1 Yeah, me too. Side-eyeing someone's name? It's not the kid's fault! This is a really old problem though, isn't it? We've been whitewashing and Anglicizing names in the US since Ellis Island, Hollywood and the music industry has been doing it forever too. It's gross and I understand why Laquita would want to change her name (discrimination is exhausting and wears you the fuck down) but I also really admire people who are willing to bear down and fight on this one.
@TARDIStime Was she Harry Potter?
@stuffisthings Haha. I feel like people are always like "if you con't count all the money I spent, I didn't spend very much!" on here.
