His cut is $2,150 and he has a roommate. Most likely a 2BR apartment in a luxury apartment building.

she says its a 1 bedroom and the roomy lives in the den. But brandon is missing the point here. She's not living on a budget, her parents are highly subsidizing an unnecessarily expensive lifestyle and she's trying to write about living in NYC on the cheap. Most people who have lived in NYC in their youth have stories of tiny crappy apts which are relatively cheap, or at least they live on the outer edges of the city.

I got most of that...just misunderstood the quality of the place she was in. Glad to hear that it wasn't some typical rent for a place that small.

I'm starting to think I work with derwood. old bastard here is rambling to an executive why he hates twitter while I'm explaining to her how they can now use twitter with the software upgrade they just paid over $100k for. she keeps saying "well you're probably not our target audience", and he still won't stop yapping. hilarity

My "abandon all social media for a couple weeks" experiment is complete. Results:

1.) I really don't miss Facebook at all. I think I'll keep that to checking in once a week or so to like the pictures of my daughter that my wife posts. But I don't see a real need beyond that.
2.) I realized I pretty much only use twitter to get outraged at politics when I'm bored. I should probably abandon that, or only use it check for specific news, like during the draft or the trade deadline.
3.) Reddit is the one place I feel like provided enough actual value in what it showed me that I don't need to cut back too much. But I'll be pruning some of the politics subreddits that are basically just anger-porn for me.
4.) I was way more productive when I wasn't feeling the urge to stop and check social media every few minutes. I did some reading, worked around the house, and just did more worthwhile stuff overall.

A couple friends and I were outside of a brewery in Portland waiting for a Lyft and this guy walks by with a pet stroller. At first glance, it looks like he has two small dogs in there. Looking closer, it’s a dog and a cat. That’s odd but whatever, cat’s obviously used to it. But as he walks by, we notice that in addition to that, he has a horsefeathering parrot sitting on the handlebars of the stroller.

I don’t expect I’ll ever see that again.

Sounds like something out of an episode of Portlandia. Seems weird to me, but maybe not for Portland.

I literally broke my neck yesterday. Body surfing and the wave pile drove me. Broke C7 in two places. But I'm alive.

A few months ago I deleted my Facebook, purged a ton of my follows on Twitter. I never had Reddit and I really only follow Instagram. My peace of mind is in a much better place now.

And I agree, I don’t miss FB whatsoever.
