Re: "Lease" Discussion

I wish xkcd would get out of my head. It's starting to creep me out.

I'm supposed to sign the lease for my first apartment tomorrow. I was just talking to my boyfriend last night about how I don't feel adult enough to be doing this.

Re: Who owns a suit?

I don't have a suit. Since my budget restricts me to shopping mostly at Goodwill, and since I'm smaller than most women my age, I can never find a suit jacket that fits me correctly. I wish I had one. Though, honestly, I don't know what occasion I would have to wear it. I do have a monocle, though.
