The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Use Up Your Sick/Vacation Days

If you’re a working girl, you have a certain number of days you can take off for vacation, illness, etc., and at a lot of companies, these days off don’t carry over into the next year. Make sure to use as many of your days as possible before the year ends — just don’t so… More »


The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Do The Thing You’ve Been Putting Off

I bought a lamp at a thrift store for $1.95 over the summer. It’s a beautiful thing — white porcelain with tiny gold stars along its edges. The only problem was that it didn’t turn on when I plugged it in. The lamp sat at home, useless, until I finally got fed up and went… More »
