UPDATE: THEY ACCEPTED. IM GOING TO BE A FUCKING HOMEOWNER. I just submitted an offer on a condo.
What are you eating today/cooking to eat this week?
Multiple, very similar, jobs, advertised exclusively through one agency. Requiring individual applications (so I can’t just say “please consider me for X,Y, and Z”).
Oh my glob, you guys. Ok, first, I have a confession to make. I am adulting really late in life. I kinda basically never “moved out.” I lived at home through college, then lived at home afterwards to help defray the student loans (which are now paid substantially down), then I just kind of… kept living at home. It was…
This is a post to brag about things that you are proud of, but aren’t splashy or grand. I’ll start.
My Alzheimer’s Dad owns a rental house (across the yard from where he lives and I am going to live in a while). The previous tenant was there for 14 years so I had no part in renting it. The house has been vacant and under renovation for more than a year, but that is finally coming to an end and soon I need to start…
And super excited about it!!!
Full disclosure: I’ll be 60 in 2 weeks. However..... I’m skeered of health insurance and I feel like a baby.
Hello, everyone! I am so excited to be able to post here finally! [kermit flail]
Now that I’ve whined a lot about my current job, I finally got all my ducks in a row to move on!
I’m downtown. I don’t want to be in this cab. I love downtown and love public transit. I don’t want to feel bad for staying out and talking with coworkers. I wanted to take positivity of marriage and partnership and emerge stronger and CONQUER.
After labouring under the misapprehension that my family’s traditional green thumb had passed me by I suddenly went full-on crazy plant lady and bought six plants for my balcony today.
Last year (perhaps the year before last) someone who works for the IRS (I would give credit but I can’t recall who offhand) posted about IRS seasonal mass job hiring.
I have lived in apartments before but they have always been in older houses or rented houses. We are about to move into a large complex and I have a question. Like how okay are they usually with you hanging pictures/art?
Tell me your successes and failures! We’ll congratulate and commiserate together.
This is pretty inane, but sometimes I find myself realizing how ill-prepared I really was for adulthood. I credit that to my Brazilian upbringing, as typically people didn't leave their parent's homes until marriage or children of their own(in the middle class or above—among lower-income/rural families, it was common…
My apartment has an exposed brick wall. It's very pretty. But...how do I hang things on it???
Just wanted to take a minute to shout myself out for waking up before 7:30 and getting to work on time EVERY DAY THIS WEEK. It honestly might be the first time I've ever accomplished this in my adult life.
I am new to the workforce and while my job is totally above board and all the taxes are paid, it is still somewhat informal since I am an hourly-paid nanny for a family. There isn't a clear policy on when to call in sick and when to come in to work. I am granted a limited number of paid (I am paid slightly less than…
