For a staycation, the town I’m in has lovely BnB’s, or I could go up a little bit along the coast. For longer travel - I want to go everywhere! I haven’t traveled much around the US, so I’d love to do NOLA, visits friends in Florida, hike Utah and Arizona, spend more time on the East Coast... And then there’s North

The water looks dreamy! I’m glad the hurricane didn’t thwart your plans and you had a great vacay.

I know one Econ program where faculty collectively decide where they will push each of their graduates. As in, “he’ll get the X job, she’ll get the Y job.” (Whether they always actually get the jobs, I do not know.) And the students basically have no say, since they won’t get recs for any other jobs. I don’t know if

I passionately love SPSS so I am genuinely envious of you right now. ;)

I jumped ship out of academia this year so no real whines, just flashbacks to grad school and feeling angry for you.

Hi! I just sent over some money via PayPal. Hope it’s enough to tide you over for a tiny bit.

Go mom! I’m so happy she’s having fun, and also so amused that I’m so boring in comparison to her now.

My plan is to clean my new apartment and maybe Netflix with the guy I’m seeing. To my amusement, my mother’s Friday nights are now much wilder than mine: she didn’t answer my call, and texted me that she’s on bar patio getting drunk with two friends. ;P

I feel old or ignorant or something. What are the videos? I googled Loora Wang, and I think she’s a fashion designer. But I feel like I’m missing a joke/genre/online meme since I have no idea why the videos show them walking, eating popcorn, and stopping in the street. I want to be internet cool, so please explain!

I'll try to remember to update you when they arrive. It looks like they have many different companies filling the orders, so there probably isn't a uniform experience. But it's definitely going to be interesting ordering furniture without seeing it.

Your week sounds rough! Hopefully you get a relaxing weekend and those suction marks fade fast!

As someone who recently moved from the Midwest (although a still way pricier area than what you’re describing) to California, I’m a) dying on the inside at the memory of not paying $1,500 for a tiny, run-down studio but b) also grateful I’m not paying $2,500 in maintenance charges. So many feels!

Enjoy the vacay! I 100% support the plan with the lawn chair, book, and food!

I work for a university. We don’t start until late Sept, but there’s a fair bit of set-up between now and then. Our unit is scrambling a bit because we’ve had a lot of students drop/not enroll. I’m really excited for the students to be on campus. Right now, I’m dealing with the annoying aspects of setting up courses an

I’ve had success with Craigslist - I’ve found about a dozen shared flats that way over the years. You definitely want to meet in person before making any sort of commitment, but I find that people are mostly shockingly obviously skeezy/flakey - so it’s pretty easy to gauge whether someone will be a decent housemate or

People have such great responses. I don’t have much beyond commiseration. As someone said, I think after you reach a certain age, most people have baggage, it’s just a question of what you do with it and how compatible your baggage is with the other person. What I will say is that I don’t think it’s unreasonable, even

This sounds absolutely terrifying, but also like it turned out as well as it could possibly have. I’m glad you went to the specialist and they caught it in time. I know that anxiety/depression after a medical emergency is a thing, so I hope you’re looking after yourself and also seeking help if needed. Fingers and
