I've got a long term savings goal, that I never quite activate, so this is definitely the month for it. I'm trying to put at least 1,000 dollars a month into mid-term savings for my life- either for maybe quitting my job or living abroad or something. I paid off all my debt several years ago and live within my means, but I'd like to try and be much more aggressive about living below my means and saving my money. Its easy to spend money when you are young in a big cool city with fun friends who like good food. I lost my expensive camera this month. It was terrible. So I have to throw some money at that problem. My guess is that after replacing the camera and making sure I put the new camera on my electronics insurance, I will have about 700 (plus or minus 100?) in mid term savings to start this month on. So for the next month my goal is to add at least 1,000 dollars, ending up with 1,700, but if if I am careful and eat in and don't buy anything, maybe get up to 2,000, then on track to start saving at least 1,000 per month from here on out. Let's see how it goes.
@RosemaryF I strongly agree. This happened to me and everyone said to go back but since I'd asked for more layers and keeping the length and he gave me no layers, chopped off all my hair into a triangle, and then curled it all up so i couldn't tell till I washed it, dried it, saw what happened and cried like a baby...I couldn't bear to. Instead I called around to various salons, checked them out on yelp and got the receptionist to tell me who was best at fixing something like that. And at that salon I've had nothing but perfect haircuts from people who read my mind. Look, if it was a sandwich I'd say go back, but it's your already too short head. If they mess it up again are you going to walk around for 6 months hating it?
I'm a Dowager Countess. Bravo for me.
Sodastream! Also Cuisinart just launched their own homemade water bubbler. I have one and it's so good. Seltzer on demand, as much as you can drink all the time. So worth it. the unit is a pricey start up cost, so maybe hold out for a birthday.
I am closing my HSBC account. When I called to figure it out, the lady on the other end of the line said, "may I ask why you are closing your account?" And I said, "because of all the money laundering for mexican drug cartels and maybe al Qaeda." And she was like, "oh. yeah. That." She didn't exactly say that, but pretty much.
He's also famous for this delicious little incident.
@Mike Dang Thank you! Still friends! Just...you have no idea what the ninth circle of hell is until you are a pregnant person. Maybe you get a hint of it when planning a wedding. I think the reason society wants people to be married before having kids is so they can get used to the opinion factory.
@polka dots vs stripes, "I feel that nine months is a relatively short period of time" to stop: being in cars eating any sugar watching scary movies smiling eating wheat wearing shoes going to work having opinions working out not working out getting in a hot tub eating cheese, cold cuts, peanut butter, burgers, steaks, fish, eggs, salads, milk, coffee, tea petting cats, eating food cart food letting dogs lick your face taking your meds for whatever getting lifesaving chemo ... sorry Mike, I think you are a nice person, but EVERYONE says this about something to do with pregnancy. "It's only nine months, why risk it?" And while I know it's not your personal quote, it's usually men who say this, and oh my GOD is it ever infuriating. As a person who has actually BEEN pregnant, let me tell you, it can be TERRIFYING. Your body is completely out of control- it's making you puke and cry and have gas pains so bad you think you might need to go to the hospital. You go home after work and fall asleep on the couch right away. You can smell EVERYTHING. Your hips HURT like a fucker. Something is happening inside of you and it's not all fun and games. This thing that's happening to you, could potentially kill you. The little person inside of you which is rapidly assembling itself might die too, or be sick or have something happen during birth. Something like 20% of pregnancies fail in the first trimester. And if you are a pregnant person you better believe people will enjoy telling you what might go wrong, and blaming you if something does. And in the meantime, while you are coping with physical bullshit and hormonal bullshit, and people are touching you without permission and feeling free to comment and telling you all about their hemmroids and terrible labor stories and c-sections and all that, if you DARE to put ANY kind of food in your mouth, someone is drawing in a quick hiss of breath and looking at you like you just aimed an actual gun at an actual baby. "THAT SPINACH ISN'T TRIPLE WASHED! THAT CARROT HAS PESTICIDES! WINE?! MY GOD, don't you have any concern for the wellbeing of your fetus?! Why can't you RESTRAIN YOURSELF YOU MONSTER?" That's what pregnancy is like.
@Megano! There is! There is a miracle cut! FOR EVERY PERSON. I BELIEVE THIS. There is a way to cut every person's hair on the planet so it flatters them without product. The trick is that you have to find your unicorn stylist and you also have to accept what your hair is like. If you have straight hair, its not going to be big, if you have curly, it won't be flat.
