it sounds like I am attacking mine...
We already have a few places we want to visit: Cafe Du Monde, the French Market, and Central Grocery are, of course, on the list. We'll also be visiting Frisco Fest at one of the plantations outside of the city.
Are there any locals or people familiar with NOLA who could recommend some of the less touristy places to visit?
Or even just some recommendations on other places to see?
This will be my very first road trip without my family and I'm excited. Where did you go for your first trip as an adult?
If you travel often, what's something you always seem to forget?
other than frozen meals that are high in sodium, are there any packaged foods that come in single portion sizes? im trying to lose weight and am struggling with portion control. ive been gaining weight and am having a tough time with self-control.

Haha, okay, so I have a pretty uneven skin tone, my pores are a bit large, and the skin is a bit rough/dry. Any recommendations on skin care you've tried or known someone to have success with? While not looking to by $500 an ounce moisturizer I'm not completely ruling out (just mostly). If you've been to a dermatologist for just unsatisfactory/uncomfortable skin what did they do for you? I've considered seeing one but I don't see the point in wasting my time and money if they just tell me to slap some lotion on it.

+ Search for a full time + benefits job not in your field but something you're good at
+ Hold out for a full time + benefits job in your industry that you are qualified for (few and far between)
+ Attempt to find 2 part time jobs in your industry (much more common) and apply for health insurance through the ACA
+ Something else that I will detail in the comments

Also, anyone having trouble with polls? It generates the code but it keeps posting just the text when I post/preview it.
I've had the job for two and a half years. It's a job with benefits that sounds good and looks good on paper and it took me about two years of temp positions just to get in. The job wasn't actually all that bad at first, but over time a lot of little things have gotten steadily worse. I feel like it's gotten to the point where staying in this environment is actually hurting my employment future. I do have the opportunity to do something part time (though unsteady) -- it would provide enough money to pay my bills and the savings I have would provide enough for me to pay for health insurance for a half year or so if I'm frugal.
I am so depressed sometimes I feel sick and actually sometimes start to cry when I have to get up to go in in the mornings. I've asked my doctor about therapy and antidepressants because I'm so upset and desperate. I'm at the point where, even though I'll feel guilty for being 'lazy' and worrying my family (I'll be unemployed!) and even though I know it doesn't make sense in this economy, I would rather risk it and do the unofficial/unsteady part time job while applying for something full time that isn't so soul sucking.
So should I quit my job, TQC?
Did you give any consideration to feng shui when arranging your current living or working space?
To save money on said renovations, would you ever consider using salvaged architecture and fixtures in good (and not always great) condition?
Is appearance more important to you than function?
These questioned brought to you by the hell i'm slogging through on a project that was supposed to just be a clean up and patch job for the trailer I am supposed to be moving in to.
dk/dc: what are you jealous of?
