Gots no money in the bank because my current jobs pays nothing at all. No exaggeration paid rent which is cheap and had like $70 leftover to survive for two weeks. Also now I feel bad because of the weight i have lost I only have a pair of black trousers that fit to my name, a short sleeve pink blouse and a sweater vest pullover. Totally not prepared for the weather. I have a two chinos but they are too big in the butt and waist area. Other than that no real professional tops. This is a teaching job by the way. I am still excited but now I am worried. And before anyone asks,for the situation I am in,this job is best for me because the probability of finding something in Georgia was disheartening.
I would find out if the new job helps with moving expenses. Also the local Chamber usually has some information to help newcomers with housing ect. Also this may be the time to break out the emergency expenses credit card if you have one. You can pay on the bill later because you know you will have an income. I'd hate for you to lose an opportunity. Also check consignment and thrift shops for cheap nice clothes. I have given plenty of nice stuff away before.

To the bold - Is his spelling that bad? If he's all beauty and no brains, then yeah, that would give me pause. Pick his brains - see if he can engage in stimulating conversation. Does he read? Or does he only know the latest LeBron stats? However, if he has a ton of other great qualities, I wouldn't necessarily let that be a deal breaker.

I speak from experience. My husband is very good looking BUT thankfully he's very intelligent also. Spelling just isn't one of his strengths. (I don't understand why his teachers weren't sticklers for spelling but that's off-topic.)

Hubs is an avid reader, so he's well informed about current events and even self-educated in a number of topics. By far I'm no Einstein, but I'm impressed by his knowledge of topics that I have a hard time wrapping my brain around (investments, economics, law), so his knack for spelling "spelling" with only one "L" gets a pass. If anything his spelling (or lack thereof) is now a common joke between us.
Hi Elle!! I loved your troll video.

I think it depends on the words the guy has trouble spelling. If you can't spell "arachnophobia" we can still be cool but if you can't spell "fear of spiders" then it's over.

Remember how in junior high the guys would pass you love notes. Some of the notes I got the handwriting was so jacked up I couldn't even make out the letters to know if it was mispelled. LOL

Thanks! And yes, I agree. I have one friend though...smart as heck, but ALWAYS says "would of." I know I've told him about it before because it tears my nerves UP!

@cocoT @coilynapp Sup sup! Just popping in. Spelling always lures me.

"Would of" really grates my nerves. I mean WHY? WHY? Is "would have" so hard to say?

Lmao!! I think I may do that sometimes. I won't even front. In my defense, I do catch myself when I do it.

But I blame it on society's perpetual misuse of common phrases.

Ok so she was supposed to get back with me today about how much they can give me and so I am waiting for that sum. I called her twice and left a message once. I will write an email tonight. So sounds like I will get money I just don't know how much. I have no emergency credit card, BUT randomly my Lane Bryant Credit Card works again so I have purchased a black blazer and will get some slacks and hope the size 14 will work because women's 14 on the bottom fits me kinda big sometimes. My old roommate has volunteered her dad to pack up a drive the truck to MI so I'm waiting for confirmation. I am looking for more places later on.

I think that's the problem. So many people say it, that everyone thinks it's correct and keeps saying it. Same with could of, should of and must of. Grinds my gears!!!

Also, another one. Sale and sell. No, a sell is not going on. During a sale, there are people selling things.
I see "garage sell" signs all the time...what?

Congrats to you - and you have the power to shut it down, if folks start to get too personal. It's none of my business what situation you're in.

Anyhoo, once you get settled, you gotta drive down to where I work, so we can have lunch, and shop at...SEPHORA (once you get settled in you new job)!!

Just sayin'...

It's not hard to say. But should've and would've are real contractions and 've sounds like of.

I'm not really defending dumbasses. They should burn in hell for failing to use correct grammar. But some people don't know cause they don't care to know. They're okay with sounding like an idiot. Just saying...

I am calling TOD on this apartment search at 11:12 pm EST. I only found 4 apartment homes and of the four only two seem like a promising lead. *le sigh*

What gets to me is when people use the wrong word, but ther wrong word is spelled differently and is usually longer than the right word. I've gotten texts where people have used "weight" in place of "wait" and "shore" instead of "sure". My grammar isn't always perfect, and I don't quite care for the so-called "Grammar Nazi" thing, but some things seem like they should stand out enough for you to question whether it's right or not...right? lol
