On Majoring in Economics and Making Money

@SarahAnne Speaking as a Sociology/Social Work graduate who is right on track in terms of the salaries listed above. I think Sociology ended up being a default major for some and could lead to tons of debt. However I strongly disagree that Sociology is always a not work related general "liberal arts" path. The degree did offer a track you could take with very statistics/programming oriented courses, which I did take advantage of. Basically any job that ends in "analyst" that would be great training for. Had I continued with my old company I would have been in the $80,000 or above range but I chose the do-gooder research path. Less money but significantly less bullsh*t and no office cubes. But I did stay long enough in the old job to get my 401k vested which did help my retirement significantly.

On Frugal Travel Moves That Backfired On Me

Drove instead of taking a plane. Leisurely road trips where you get adequate sleep? Fine. Sleep deprived torture drives that ended in a car totaling but gratefully no serious injuries car accident? Not money saving and dangerous.

@halloliebchen Yay fun weekend. I amused my husband trying to pronounce the festival's name when I told him about it. He also thought it sounded awesome.

@ATF "close to Storrow makes for some grimy windows" Is Storrow a factory? A power plant? Sounds like you had a great weekend though.
