1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Maybe in your neck of the woods, but it's still pretty unusual here (although common in the rural town I grew up in). I don't think it's particularly weird, just that having a kid is the kind of thing that probably should be mentioned before a first date. Stripper thing doesn't really phase me at all, I'd be a massive hypocrite if it did.

    I like women who are comfortable with their body and their sexuality.

    And everyone knows that strippers have the best self image and are at peace with their sexual identity

    They're certainly more comfortable with those things than the average girls I've known. :/

    Very big missed opportunity there. Really could have taken this to the next level, if you had responded "Well, having spent my college years as a stripper..."

    I was reflecting on my fits and I think this is the best ive done

    [​IMG]


    Curious to see which people think is their best (and why if theyd like to say why). Especially for people like Kgfan/Snow/diniro, would be nice to see what makes a particular fit really pop for them.

    yeah I agree - the pants and shoes look cool, but it looks top heavy with that jacket. and without the jacket it's a pretty casual fit that is cool but nothing special, in my opinion. some of your stuff from this winter is the best I've seen from you, I think

    You're moving to a pretty expensive city, and there are gonna be trade-offs. A couple of factors to consider:

    - Price
    - Living situation (roommates, subletting, &c.)
    - Amenities (groceries, gym)
    - Entertainment (bars, music venues)
    - Safety
    - Length of commute
    - Form of commute (bus vs. metro)
    - DC proper vs. a suburb

    Unless it's your top priority, I recommend against limiting yourself to places right around metro stops. Buses suck, but they're cheaper than the metro if you're traveling any distance and they open up a lot of neighborhoods that aren't directly metro-accessible. You pay a premium for living by a metro stop, so you might end up with lower rent if you're willing to venture a little further from a station. At the same time, I recommend against setting yourself up with a commute that involves a transfer from one bus route to another. Fortunately, Union Station is enough of a hub that this shouldn't be an issue.

    If I moved back, I'd probably look at Logan Circle (possibly too expensive), Mt. Pleasant, Adams Morgan (where I used to live), and Columbia Heights right off the bat. I've heard parts of Shaw are getting to be pretty nice. Eastern Market and the surrounding area are supposedly really nice, but I've only been there a couple of times and I don't know the residential parts very well. I would generally stay away from brand-new construction, since IME those places tend to price-gouge and are rarely as nice as they seem.

    Assuming this is a summer internship, your best bet may be to look for sublets from students. It's possible that one or more of the schools in the area already has some sort of system up and running for students who want to post or rent sublets, or you could just start scanning craigslist (acknowledging that a lot of stuff usually doesn't come up until pretty close to the lease start date).

    Also, ask @randomkoreandude if you want info on where Georgetown law kids live.
