My name is Anne. I internet a lot because I have no social skills.
Yes. Idiots who refuse to engage in any introspection past the age of 14 are dicks. Men feel threatened when their cultural hegemony in any one area appears to be threatened, lash out accordingly. This is known. It is so known.
@alannaofdoom YES. EXACTLY.
Didn't finish reading the letters. Scrolled right to the bottom to announce we are now all making "stalky bananas" a thing. Okay guys? Don't be stalky bananas. Or do be! Just be sure to admit you are being stalky bananas!!
@George Templeton Strong I very much enjoy this comment because your username and avatar caused me to read it in the voice of a stern English gentleman. I imagine said gentleman writing this comment with a quill and pen and it somehow just magically then appears here. I hope that's what you're going for, because it's awesome.
@Emmanuelle Cunt Yeah, reading stuff like this stresses me out because I then find myself wondering if I'm the only person who is in her 20's and actually HAS to work full time. The comments on this post were very reassuring, in that regard.
@leon s I have a feeling if you don't feel bad about mooching off of people and are willing to tolerate a certain level of insecurity/filth you can pull off living on very, very little.
@Lily Rowan I hear that. I love to travel but paying for it depresses me because it makes money disappear and causes stress usually. I like to spend my money buying a few nice things for myself that I can touch and look at and show off to people while screaming "I EARNED THIS!!!!"
But yeah it took me a year to save $3,000 once working two jobs. I have no idea how one goes about saving $15,000.
@JanieS I hear you.
Can we get a "how to have fun and relax when you're pushing thirty and living check to check and struggling to get out from under debt while building a career in a field that pays very little" series? I could relate to that one.
How about a "this is my day job, it has nothing to do with my career, I sleep never" series?
@christonacracker I smell a trust fund... (not that there's anything wrong with that)
@Nicole Cliffe I'm not even remotely gay and I'M tempted to sleep with all those ladies' girlfriends JUST ON PRINCIPLE.
