Ooohkay, here goes:

1.  My ever-growing book collection and the fact that I will read anything that people lend or recommend to me. I feel like a lot of people stick to only one or two genres, but I’m constantly and consciously trying to expand what I read.

2. I actually know how to cook! This kind of always surprises me. When I was a kid I really resisted learning how to cook from my mom (who is an excellent cook). I’ve really only been cooking for the last 3-4 years, and I find it fun and it lets me be creative and I feel active doing things with my hands and then I have an instant reward: food.

3. I’m incredibly independent/self-sufficient. I’ve worked hard to get into a position where I feel like I can tackle just about any problem that comes my way, short of heavy lifting.

4. I’m very good at word games. Scrabble, boggle, and bananagrams in particular.

5. My hands.


I’m generally very happy banking with Citibank, but I just found out that if I go UNDER a certain amount in my checking that I get CHARGED with a “monthly service fee”? They just did this, it made me be overdrawn, and then they charged me the $30 overdraft fee. Wtf

A lot of banks do that these days. It’s almost impossible to find “free” checking or savings accounts. I would check out local credit unions, or fully online banks. And use to choose what’s best for you!

It’s really expensive to be poor.
