Re: “Portrait Photog Sets Out to Debunk Portlandia—Debunks Himself

Why didn't he film me at my desk financial analyzing for the man in head to toe Old Navy 80 hours a week? Pretty sure that wouldn't make it onto Portlandia yet here I am...

Re: “Learning Too Much From Twitter

If we're talking about Tanuki, it's HER restaurant. Christ, at least know something about the chef before you go making an ass out of yourself. If you don't like the politics, don't go. More Bacon Kimchee Cheese buns for my fat ass.

Re: “How Much Do You Owe in Student Loans?

@Damask and @Reymont

I'm curious, did you both start your MIM's right after finishing undergrad? Most business schools want a solid 5 year work experience before going onto higher education, and I found that PSU is not in that camp. I have 5 years of senior level accounting and finance under my belt and that will get me the interview nearly every time, the MSFA is what seals the deal. If I had completed the program having no experience I feel that I would not have understood how to apply what I had learned. My Master's is extremely valuable, but without the combined experience it would be worth much less.

Re: “How Much Do You Owe in Student Loans?

100k in student loans from a public university with a degree in economics? Clearly she must not have paid attention to the fundamentals... I too have an Economics Degree but from a top ten liberal arts college (in price). Instead of 100k in loans I managed to get out with only 20k in loans by working through school, although this was ten years ago. However, I did take the entire cost of my Master's out in loans last year from PSU and that was only 50k (money well borrowed). I don't make a 100k yet (70% there), but I know I will in five years. My first job out of undergrad was in Accounts Receivable at 13/hr; you don't make 100k with a BA and no experience, that's just common sense. If these are the "economists" we have in the pipe, we're screwed.

Re: “SL Letter of the Day: How Do I Get Mom To Come Out?

I feel the same way about my mom, but it's mainly due to the mullet/fannypack/and cats.

Re: “The TSA vs Your Junk, Sanity

I've decided that the next time I fly I will take a three fingered cavity search before I get in that machine. And I'm doing it solely out of spite.
