In other words, adulting sucks. Your goal in life is to make it suck a little less.
Also, a lot of people have misconceptions about what certain jobs entail. Telling someone to run a yarn shop because they enjoy knitting makes about as much sense as telling someone to own a fly-fishing store because they like knitting.
I think a surprising amount of people have a difficult time grasping the concept that “doing what you love” is 1) a sure-fire way to learn to hate what you love and 2) not a practical way to pay your bills.
That’s not to say you can’t learn to love what you do in life that does pay your bills. But often those hobbies and interests that we find that soothes our souls would become horrible back-breaking soul-crushing drudgery if we had to depend on them to put food on our tables and roofs over our heads.
The criteria for something that I’m capable of doing 40+ hours a week without wanting to shoot myself in the head is a lot different than the criteria for something that I enjoy as a hobby.

I now require artwork of tiny Sherlock in short pants with a Mystery Machine metal lunch pail. Or I might just keel over and die.

As if loud ringtones in public weren’t obnoxious enough, dude on the bus has a loud bagpipes playing amazing grace ringtone. His phone has rung 3 times. The entire bus is about to kill him.
BTW, my boss just bought me a case of GF Girl Scout cookies…
TO-DO LISTS ONLY WORK IF YOU ACTUALLY DO THE ITEMS LISTED
All right, all you freakin’ professional ladies out there… I came from a job where denim of any kind was verboten and I had to wear a suit on a regular basis. In an effort to shake off that miserable chapter of my life I also shed much of that work attire. I now work a job where “professional” clothes aren’t really all that necessary (my boss wears a different Disney sweatshirt and a pair of jeans every single day), but at the same time I’m not longer hidden away in my office where failing to change out of the running pants and vibrams you wore to ride your bike in all day will go 100% unnoticed.
I’m not interested in going down to Nordstrom or Banana Republic or anything and getting super-nice stuff, but I need some clothes that nicely handle that “professional adult” description.
So if you could build a simple work wardrobe, what sort of foundation pieces would you have in it? And how many?

California just had a 6.9 earthquake. No tsunami or major damage thus far. Off the coast of northern ca. Any Bay Area people feel it?
