Post College Observations 1-7

1. Practical gifts make the best gifts. Case in point: cousin and blog faithful BE got me a microwave for my new bachelorette pad. The ease it will bring to my life next week, as I tackle living on my own for the very first time, will be astronomically unparalleled.

2. I am officially the BEST CANDIDATE EVER for credit cards. Clearly, that's coated with sarcasm. Chase, AmEx, Capital One, and Discover, however, are in a heated battle, vying for my economic affections like tooth and nail. I'll remain a VISA faithful.

3. Investigating how to hook up a freaking Internet connection is going to be the death of me. Living with no Internet or Cable TV is clearly a non-option for this reality-loving blogger.

4. Graduation gift check$ make me feel that milk and bread will be not be so impossible to access for the two weeks before my first fabulous paycheck. Family and friends, y'all are wonderful! ;-)

5. My new next door neighbors have IRISH BROGUES. And a pool. It's time to make new friends, don't ya think?

6. I am ashamed to admit this, but I considered commuting in sneakers for about three seconds yesterday. And that's about 3 seconds too long than I should have. But honestly... my 12-minute walk to the train could do some serious damage to a collection of shoes that cost a lifetime of blood, sweat, and tears.

7. Air conditioning is a luxury that I will learn to do without. Oh, the tears...
