I had a successful appointment at the Aveda Institute today and I’m just so glad because it means that I can continue to avoid the dreaded $60 haircut (NOPE) while avoiding ever having to drive to north Forsyth.
“She refers to her female partner in the escapade alternately as “KiKi” and “Kiki.” She calls it “freshmen year” instead of “freshman year.” She calls her family lowercase “waspy” — as if no one at Vice ever considered “WASPy” or “Waspy” – but she refers to the uppercase “fucking Pope… with all the Cardinals” even though she’s not talking about a character on “Scandal” and a baseball team. Most grievously of all, she complains, “I really wish this story ended with a climax, a threesome, or Kiki and I getting it on since Douchebag couldn’t carry his weight.” Come on. Everybody knows it should be “Kiki and me” getting it on. It’s like nobody at Vice even cares about the prepositional phrase.”—
Yes, condescending stranger, I damn well can be mad that someone is hitching their car to an RV in the middle of my one my street. And I can be mad that they’re building a deck onto the house where I’m still living and were working on it even on a Sunday morning. I can even be a little mad about how critical my mom is of all my financial decisions, even though I’m better with money than nearly all of my friends.
How does “completely redoing the kitchen” not include replacing the obviously ancient and gross appliances?
Apartment hunting sucks so much, even now that I’ve managed to find a roommate who was smart enough to get the details of what would be redone before signing anything.
This is why I can’t live alone yet. Aside from it being too expensive, I’m much too likely to panic and rush into something almost great because worrying about the details that aren’t perfect means prolonging my anxiety about having to find a place.
“I don’t think any nation should elevate service to the status of culture. At best, it’s a practicality, to be enacted politely and decently by both parties, but no one should be asked to pretend that the intimate satisfaction of her existence is servicing you, the “guest,” with a shrimp sandwich wrapped in plastic… We are subject to enough delusions in this life without adding to them the belief that the girl with the name tag is secretly in love with us.”—"Take It or Leave It" - Zadie Smith
Some neighbors have been partying for hours and it’s vaguely annoying because they’re supposed to be old and tired after Chomp and Stomp like the rest of us, dammit, but at least their music selection is pretty decent.
“In order to tell tepid to fuck off once and for all, you MUST recognize that life among those who don’t appreciate or understand you is bullshit. You don’t want to live that way. You don’t want to be badgery and lonely while you’re with someone. You’d rather be alone.”—YUP
“…”Conservatives don’t want to here this but another reaosn why California stop getting so many folks from other states is prop 13 put a cap on school spending …and the UC system was no longer almost free”Nonsense. CA public schools are less attractive to whites from other states because they’re increasingly filled with dullards. Money is fungible. CA could easily continue to spend on its schools like it once did if it so chose. Prop 13 didn’t “put a cap on school spending”, it put a cap on the rate of increase in property tax assessments. Yes, I know that local property taxes were a big a driver of school spending. Adjust. It was 35 years ago yet the left still whines as if it was yesterday. How awful that people can’t be taxed out of their homes. Two, as a a long-time CA resident, I’m glad to see the UC (and CSU) system no longer “almost free”. Heaven forbid some “womyn’s studies” majors pay for their own “education”. The lunatics at Berkeley have no claim on my money. As for local schools - my kids left the public school system after the 2nd grade. Our historically 90% white elementary school in an upper-middle class Bay Area suburb became about 30% mexican - the mexican kids were nice enough but they were constantly behind and the school was devoting more and more resources to trying to catch them up. Their parents couldn’t be bothered to help of course, and also didn’t participate in any of the PTA activities, whether cleaning school grounds or having fund-raisers (to help fund teacher’s assistants to help catch up the mexican kids). Resources being a zero-sum game in the near-term, the higher achieving white and asian kids were increasingly left to work on their own. My kids’ had level of homework that would boggle your mind - until you realized the school was pushing their duties onto white parents so they could pay attention to the mexicans. So I’m glad one avenue out of many that CA uses to gouge money out of me has been choked off. BTW, this is the natural end game for ceaseless immigration: people no longer consider other CA or US residents their countrymen and are less willing to make sacrifices to help them.”—Best spam I’ve seen in a while
My landlords are selling my house so staying here and finding a replacement for my roommate isn’t an option anymore. If you or anyone you know needs a roommate in Atlanta (or if you know of any nice inexpensive 1bdrms in town), let me know. I need to find a place by December.
“Poor investment in transit is holding the Atlanta region back…DC’s Metro rail system is about 2.5 times the size of Atlanta’s, despite the fact that they were the same size in the 1980s. As a result, MARTA has a reputation for serving mostly poor people, while DC’s Metro ridership is a much better reflection of the total population.”—
I am pretty sure I’m going to need to find a new roommate, if not two, starting in December. I really, really don’t want to move again, so keep me in mind if you know anyone who needs a place in Atlanta. Reasonable rent, Reynoldstown/Cabbagetown.
When I turn down an invitation because I have plans and then those plans get canceled and it’s too late to accept the other invitation, that is why I am mad that the thing was canceled and that I found out about it by seeing alternative plans for not-me as the first thing on my feed when I log into facebook.
I forgot that it feels kind of great to be unfriended by someone who shares complete fucking nonsense on facebook, even if it is juvenile to acknowledge a mass share post about how Obamacare is going to kill all the old people with cancer. The last time I saw this girl I asked if I could go to her wedding. Guess that’s a no.
I take the pill form of birth control, I was wondering when would taking it be best? I used to just take them before I went to bed but I was told that I shouldn’t do that and to take them 2 or 3 hours before I eat so now I have to get up at 4:30 every morning to take my pill.
