  • basically, if i don’t shop (and stick to my move to philly plan in september) and have a super, super strict budge (which i can do because duh, i’m me) i will pay off my credit cards (long story on them; never fully depend on another person cause they can dip) and enter grad school with no debt
  • translation: the only fun i’m allowing myself to have is the designated show dates with daniel for all of may because my paychecks are already called for, i will most likely piss off a lot of people and i don’t care cause i need my credit score (it has to go up 20 points for me to get the best interest rate) to take out loans
  • oh, my grad program has classes ranging from 9-3, monday-thursday and it’s not even close to being full time working friendly. does anyone have suggestions as to part-time work i can do that isn’t retail and pays more than 13 an hour?




Pants are the worst thing ever. I don’t care how much of a boss I become, I will always wear dresses and skirts. Leg constriction sucks.

TED Talks: Meg Jay hopes to motivate a generation of twenty-somethings who have repeatedly been told they have plenty of time to figure out their lives. On the contrary, Jay sites statistics about career growth, relationship development and reproductive capabilities that all emphasize the importance of our 20s as a formative period that sets the trajectory for the rest of our lives.

30 is NOT the new 20




What are you going to grad school for?
by Anonymous

Public health with a concentration in healthy policy & management.

While in undergrad, I wanted to be a registered dietitian until I learned a) I would always have to have a boss if I desired to make the big bucks b) I can’t “really” influence anything and c) I would have to suggest meals to patients based on the governments whacked out health standards that I don’t even follow myself.

Ultimately, I love food/nutrition (ask anyone I know) and would love to do consulting in some type of way on that along with advocating for the availability of organic foods (or food lots) for low earning families/areas where it’s hard to transport food. It pisses me off to hear people say “you should eat all organic!” when they don’t understand not everyone can do so.

I’ll probably sell my soul for a high earning job (80k+) right out of the program so I can pay off my grad school loans, buy a bomb ass electric car, buy a home and save money so I can do what I really want to do after 5 years. You should follow up with this question in 2 years from now when I’m graduating in June.

"If I say “I am poor,” and keep on saying, “I am poor,” subconscious mind at once says, “Yes, you are poor.” and keeps me poor, as long as I say it. This is all there is to poverty. It comes from impoverished thinking. We deal only with thoughts, for thoughts are things, and if the thought is right the condition will be right. An active thought will produce an active condition."

I made vegan curry udon for the first time for W and his comments while eating were priceless. 

"What’s in this dragon stew?"
“I can feel my throat burning.”
“My tears are going to cool my face down as I finish.”
“Man, I really wish I drank milk right about now.”
“I like it and I want another bowl, prepare for the burn.”

Still upset about not having risotto.

"The innocent mistake that keeps us caught in our own particular style of ignorance, unkindness, and shut-downness is that we are never encouraged to see clearly what is, with gentleness. Instead, there’s a kind of basic misunderstanding that we should try to be better than we already are, that we should try to improve ourselves, that we should try to get away from painful things, and that if we could just learn how to get away from the painful things, then we would be happy. That is the innocent, naive misunderstanding that we all share, which keeps us unhappy.

This is not an improvement plan; it is not a situation in which you try to be better than you are now. It is something much softer and more openhearted than any of that. It involves learning how, once you have fully acknowledge the feeling of anger and the knowledge of who you are and what you do, to let it go. So whether it’s anger or craving or jealousy or fear or depression—whatever it might be—the notion is not to try to get rid of it, but to make friends with it. That means getting to know it completely, with some kind of softness, and learning how, once you’ve experienced it fully, to let go."
