I always refuse to fill in super-sensitive info like my SSN (!!) and my credit card. Because I have been to enough doctors offices to see that shit is way too disorganized for me to trust them to keep that info safe. If they really truly need it later, we can sort it out then.
Not anymore! :D That's ok. I'll get there someday.
1999 - I was 12, and life was a wide-open beautiful book of possibility. (After all, this was pre-post-9/11-America.) Income: $0 2007 - I was a college sophomore, working a part-time job that I was terrible at (selling clothes). Income: ~$10/hr 2013 - I was 26, had my first grown-up job, and just got a raise to $50,000. (That doesn't predict how 2014 has gone, wherein I'm Following My Dreams and also Taking A Paycut to do so...)
Yes I have already bought my tickets. And I don't know if anyone knows about this, but Google Flights is an awesome tool! Y'know, since I've already accepted Google into my life in every other way.
This is very honest, thank you for writing it.

@Heather F G That's true, I keep wearing through the thighs of my jeans so now I'm moving towards dress pants. Is this what it means to become an adult woman?

@HelloTheFuture I will wear a dress and 4 pairs of leggings in the winter because I get so sick of pants.
This is tangentially related to what I am attempting to do with my life—art conservation—which I discovered by way of repairing books in a library. So I really love reading interviews like these! Because other than "go to grad school" there is very little instruction on how to become a conservator, and I'm trying to glean as much advice as possible. :\
Thanks everyone!! Some of my friends have reacted angrily/resentfully to other friends that announce their paid-off status, so I feel weird about expressing this joy to them. Money is taboo, etc. I knew I could count on Billfolders to understand.
