  1. TO Lawyer :

    The buzzfeed article is actually hilarious… I died laughing to myself

  2. Some of the career tips really counteract the “underpromise, overdeliver” rule, which I think makes a lot more sense. “I’ll try to do X amount by Y time” is a lot more professional, and brings you more credibility over time, than just sounding good by saying “sure thing!” when you can’t follow through. It also pretends that unforeseen roadblocks never come up, which anyone who’s worked knows is a foolish thing to assume.

  3. SF Meet-up? :

    k-padi here. Anyone interested in a San Francisco meet-up on the 21st?

    I am totally past my late twenties so I don’t know where the “cool spots” are. If you have any location ideas, please reply.

  4. Hot Pink Shoe Shopping :

    Trying to find cute low heeled hot pink shoes for upcoming bridesmaid duties and I can’t find anything suitable. Any suggestions? Bonus if they are available in wide width and cost less than $200.

    • Not exactly low heeled, but cute and good price –


    • Sydney Bristow :

      They don’t appear to be what I would call “hot pink” but maybe pretty close, but based on this morning’s discussion I’d recommend checking out the Karmen pump from Payless. The magenta color is pretty and might be bright enough for what you are looking for. I own them in the nude-for-me and black, both in wide width and they are super comfortable. best of all, they are only $20! http://www.payless.com/store/product/detail.jsp?catId=cat10088&subCatId=cat10270&skuId=131313120&productId=70962&lotId=131313&category=&catdisplayName=Womens
