I know I have loads of work to do but I am so tempted to snuggle up in bed and watch the Broadway version of ‘Spring Awakening.’
I want to find more really good, personal blogs where people write about their lives and you can follow them and check up on them and you kind of feel like you’re growing up with them (is that creepy? Sorry if so.) I have two right now which I check at least once a week. Can anyone suggest some?
- Slept until 11
- Ate numerous cheese quesadillas.
- 15 levels of French on Duolingo

- Watched a film with Liam Neeson in it
- Facetimed with my sister
Could you live on $8 or $9 dollars an hour? A computer game made by the Urban Ministries of Durham in North Carolina and an advertising firm called McKinney lets you play out life with a low-wage job as a single mom. The objective is to make it a month, juggling getting a job, rent, a place to live, food and coping with the costs of repairs, things for your child, insurance, etc.. Actually a very hard game to play and full of reminders of the difficulties of life on that kind of salary.
This is fantastic.
