    This article is definitely worth a read, and it's why I can't stand the TSA. I agree with pretty much everything in the article:...

    Fenwai, I love your story! :)

    I'm another Boston resident- this is my 2nd time living in the Boston area, although now I have a good steady job and actually live and work in the city, as opposed...

    Ditto. Willie Leahy runs Dartfield Horse Museum, where you can rent a horse and ride cross country. I did his famous week-long trail ride, the Connemara Trail, the last day of which was spent at...

    I'm training for a marathon but I don't know when I'll run it. My longest run to date has been 17 miles, so I figure if I get a few runs that are 22 miles then I should be set. :)

    That's exciting...

    I don't get it either, honestly. I never saw the big deal about Black Friday, and my family never did anything for Black Friday- it was mostly a day for eating leftovers.

    But, Black Friday...

    As Dr. Davis says, you will have withdraws from wheat when you first stop. And it sucks. But if you get through the first few weeks then it stops happening.

    I've been wheat-free (well, 98%) for...

    Boston. Not only is hard to meet guys here, but the guys that you do meet are boring, weird, or have issues. Also, it feels like the girl to guy ratio is not in my favor.

    I've decided, enough...

    Assuming the show is rescheduled, is this a good show to spectate at? I'm trying to figure out if it would be worth it to make the trek from the city... Furthermore, are there any other top-notch...

    Good advice. Similarly, try to get a student membership with your state Board of Accountancy. I got one while in grad school, and it wasn't very expensive. I posted my resume on their jobs board...

    Love my Hyundai!

    See above. I have 2012 Elantra that I love dearly. It's a fun, cute car to drive, tons of features (bluetooth, free XM radio for 90 days, etc) and it was cheaper than a Honda or Toyota. Plus, the...

    I'll second that! Definitely look into doing tax work as it's very technical and very detail-oriented. However, you are dealing with numbers all day, and not as many words.

    I work in a tax group...

    The Trader Joes in my old town also had an awful parking lot. It must be a requirement when they decide to build new stores ;)

    They recently opened up a store near me, and it's their smallest...

    I also did the Connemara Trail, although our guide was William Leahy (Willy's son). Great ponies, great scenery, great food, and great people. There is A LOT of riding involved, so it's best to be...

    I highly recommend Park City, Utah! There are a ton of resorts (3 of which are accessible by the fantastic public buses and the rest you can get transportation to). It has a cute downtown area with...

    Good luck! I did one last October and it was super-fun!

    One of my suggestions would be to fit in a longer race, if possible, like a 10K or 10 Miler. It will help you "train" a bit, and you get...

    Way to go! You can totally do a half marathon in February. They're super-fun and you meet some awesome people when doing road races.

    Thanks for the good suggestion. I bought the book and I cannot wait to start the diet. I'm fit and run a decent amount, and I'm hoping this will help me with my knee and ankle issues (as well as...

    Check out my previous post about leasing the Hyundai Elantra. I wanted as cheap of a car as possible, and the Elantra was a great deal. It might seem like a bit more upfront, but over the long-term...

    I was in the same situation a few months ago, and I ended up leasing a new Hyundai Elantra. All this after I promised myself that I would never drive a new car (I'm an accountant, after all).

    I did this trail ride, which was a lot of fun. The vineyard is right off Rt 66, so it's a straight shot from DC.

    If you can, try to find out which airline(s) "own" the route that you'll be flying. I had 3 "business trips" when I was going to school in Boston and had interviews in DC. In my case, JetBlue was...

    I bought a pair of Vibram FiveFingers after reading about barefoot running in Born to Run. They're great but you need to slowly build up time in them. These days I won't run more than 3 or 4 miles...

    Thank you so much for the head's up! :) I just bought the groupon for an intermediate lesson. I can't get into horses that much due to my job, but it's nice to have a lesson every now and then :yes:
