My friend got one and the fox cubs chewed through it.

We have had a rare sunny weekend and I've been very annoyed with a neighbour using the communal strip of green outside (meant to be decorative only) as though it is her own garden, she has been playing with kids and hosting picnics and barbecues all forking weekend. This evening she was playing loud music too. It's so inconsiderate to the rest of us who have windows a few feet away. The beach is just across the road, why don't they go there.

I have decided I do not want to date a habitual smoker. Their skin smells weird.

I wish this work day was over, it's been super boring today. It's really dragging and there's still 2 more hours left. I want to go outside and enjoy the sunshine before I go boil my butt off in salsa class.

I find myself looking at teacher training courses again. I started one a while ago but withdrew because of stress. It wasn't the teaching I hated, it was the course, and my tutor was an asshat. Withdrawing from that course was the most painful thing I ever had to do to myself. But, if I start and hate it again, I think it would kill me. But part of me kind of wants to? It's something I still deep down want to do.

So... "if at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again" or "don't be so stupid, Gulliver, last time you couldn't stop shaking because you were so stressed"?

AAARGH!

I don't understand how people save money. Every time I turn around any amount of money I've been able to stash away has been needed for some unforeseen expense. How does anyone ever come out ahead?

Keep saving. Eat rice and beans. Keep saving. It is a glamorous lifestyle.

This happens to me, as well. I was able to save enough to live off of for the summer (which is not much), but generally any time I save any amount, that is the exact amount needed to fix my suddenly broken car! I'm hoping that now that I have a decent-er car, that that is a thing of the past, for awhile. But of course, now I'm using what I would have been saving to pay off the car loan.

I keep wanting to start an IRA and put $50/month in it, so at least I have something when I'm older and ready to quit working. Because I am nevvvver going to have a job with a 401K or whatever it is people get from decent jobs that pay them real money and benefits and all that.

If that was the case you should feel quite confident trying again, provided you do some homework before choosing the course. Perhaps you could meet the tutor before starting this one, make sure you get on? And could you chat to the previous years students for some honest feedback on the course!

To those struggling to save, I know it's depressing but perhaps it would help to imagine if you didn't have those savings to use - being in debt to meet the unexpected bills would be worse.

This is very true, and I thank my lucky stars often! I don't have any debt besides student loans (oh, well, and my car loan, but that's doable), but I also don't have any credit cards for emergencies. Which is...great on one hand, but terrifying on the other.

I never thought I'd see the day when I'd ever say to myself: "Hey, my mother had pretty good taste in music." That day, my friends is here. (Listening to Jukebox Classics on the radio and nostalgiaing out on stuff I remember her listening to when I was a kid earlier). Gordon Lightfoot is....brilliant.

I think I just feel self-pity around summer time when everyone is posting their awesome summer vacation pictures and I just get really envious of people backpacking across Europe or swimming with the dolphins in Belize (do dolphins even go to Belize?). I have a lot and I only just got out of debt last year, so it's not like I'm suffering.

Shin Soo-ji has a great windup. She threw out the first pitch in a game between the Doosan Bears and the Samsung Lions the other day.

Yay you for getting out of debt! I don't know if this is your style, but there are some fun personal finance blogs out there if you want to read about other people not getting to spend any of their money fun wayssaving responsibly.

That's probably a good idea. Now that you say that it's occurring to me that the people I follow online in blogs and vlogs are all very well off and are leading lives that aren't realistic to me.

There's also a lot of great stuff to do close to home. You don't have to go to Belize to get a good view. I've been doing a lot of day or overnight camp trips this summer. Pretty cheap (or free other than gas) and lots of fun.
And people with a lot of money to toss about are usually the last ones to realize that their "affordable" ideas for housing or vacations or cars or almost anything are not affordable at all for a lot of the population.

I've kinda stopped using the Facebooks and such for this kinda reason, because (mentally, not logically) it's easy to lump ALL of my friends's's trips/toys/stuff as one person that I feel like I compare myself against. ie 52 people taking 1 week trips makes me feel like I should be in a new place every week. I don't even like the kinds of trips many of them do! (or the new TV/car/laptop/bike/etc)
