Interesting thing about cheap meals and dry beans. I have an aunt who owns a little grocery store in Mexico, where beans have long been a staple. She once pointed out how many poorer families had started eating ramen instead since the much quicker cooking time meant they paid a lot less for natural gas. Nutritionally, though, it's no substitute.

The reason flights are so expensive this season is that Mexicana, Mexico's biggest airline, filed bankruptcy a few months ago. Destinations are much more limited now, and often require multiple layovers. I did some traveling in Mexico this past summer and my airfare came out to $530 (One-way ticket from SFO to Oaxaca, and another one-way ticket from Guadalajara to SFO a few weeks later.) Christmas is always more expensive, though. I wouldn't rent a car,...
Reviving this thread, but there's good info here so it's better than starting a new one. Anyway, here's a question about throwing an apartment party. How strange would it be to open up a bedroom for more space at a party? I recently moved into a one-bedroom apartment just under 500 sq. ft. There would be music and seating for 6 in the living room, and the kitchen table (which would likely be used for drinking games) seats 6. The bedroom has minimal furniture, and...
I'm an engineering student too (Yes, I'm aware of the derailing up there ). Anyway, one solid piece of advice I can give you is to get involved in any active engineering clubs on campus. Start one up if there aren't any. It will help you develop your career in ways classes can't, and then some. I was never the club type, but I transferred to a new school last year and didn't know anybody there, so when I heard a new engineering club was starting up I joined it. It...
The lines are too long! And the prices too high!

I hadn't thought about the pissing part, but you're right. I didn't get a chance to buy the fabric for my Kick Ass costume in time, though, so no superhero for me this year. I think I'll go as the Tiger Woods Cigar Guy now.

My last job had a more conservative dress code, but I wouldn't want to be overdressed at the new one.

I will be starting a new job where the typical dress is business casual, as a night shift supervisor. While going through my closet deciding what to wear to the first night there, I realized most of the clothes I might wear to a business casual 9-5 job aren't in a color scheme I would normally wear at night. For example, most of my dress shirts are light blue or white, whereas at night I normally wear darker colors. Details: Mid-20's, college student. Don't worry, I...

I do hope his women's wear line includes shirtless suit looks. Cleavage-enhancing vests underneath would be acceptable.
