Well worth it. A patient teacher, a great time getting to know each other, some networking, and learned that I hook and he slices. Came into it with a bag of 36 balls, still had half the bag left by the end of 16 holes...too dark to play the last two. An addictive yet peculiarly annoying game.

A business associate calls me up a few weeks ago and says he's able to golf for free at several courses plus cart and asked if I'd like to go sometime. I told him indeed I would but know that I only play whack-a-ball and I'm horrible even at that. Didn't phase him, but I didn't think much of it as I...

I get very inspired to cook in the colder months. In warmer times I prefer to be outside more so I tend to eat out with friends or in a pinch fast food. No good cooking in the Summer since you've done it (alone or not) for the past 6 months and ya get ansy. But I do appreciate how $50 can go longer ...

I've realized I cook/prepare food way less in summer than other months, and the store selling pizza for a $1 a slice down the street from me is always a pull, lol. I've been alloting myself $50 a week for food and try to keep it healthy. I end up spending more when the sweet tooth calls. I must've s...

In revamping my own resume I've found that I'm cramming a lot in there, all good stuff I think...it fills two pages. I'm reminded of when I screen through a pile of resumes for positions at my company I immediately (and quickly) scan for related experience, education, and longevity/stability. Just c...

DH..yes you're right.. from what I've seen too, for a n.p. my salary isn't bad. Our company works primarily for the feds and business is booming. But as you can see there's no growth potential. I've also have a hard time asking for a raise (above my anticipated increase) when my boss declined his ow...

Great advice Becca! In dusting off the resume I've learned a lot working for this small non-profit, managing 11 staff, budgeting, building maintenance, contract negotiations, and conflict resolution with a volatile population..so, I'll throw it out there. And yes, I'm appropriately nerved up on the ...

I saw the other past, thanks for that. I am much more motivated to remove the remaining debt than to take on more. I'll save my pennies for now, find creative ways to build more income and see where I am in a year.

Anyone have any issues here? I recently opened up an account and depoisited funds. I saw the money leave the old account and I received an e-mail saying it would take 3 business days to reach HSBC, now I have an e-mail that says it may take another day. Why would this be? Is my $$ sitting in some in...

Thanks for the encouragement! From what I gathered it will take quite a bit of time but I'll be in a class setting with other total beginners which is nice. The teacher is known for celtic fiddling and also Canadian maritime province...I'm pretty stoked about that.
