So, I was digging through my purse today looking for a pen, and pulled out a rumpled post-it with scribbled color pencil notes. I saw the figures "$250K" and "50K" on it, and it took me a second to mentally translate the mumbo-jumbo. (I got lots of random notes down. Yes, on paper, not just my phone).
Anywho, a few weeks ago, while listening to Wait Wait Don't Tell Me on NPR, I heard one of their "Can you believe this is real?" type segments. Apparently a man was fired from his lucrative software developing job where he made $250,000 a year working from home. It was discovered that he was actually outsourcing his own job to a developer in China for $50,000 a year. Sure, that's a great salary for a guy (or gal) in China, but really? How lazy could that guy be?! Hopefully he didn't spend all $200,000 of extra money he was "earning", because now he's not earning anything! I doubt anyone else wants to hire a lazy bones like that.
Hello! I'm a 30 year old gal with a liking for doing year long projects. I've done a year without any form of chocolate, a year without coffee shops, and 5 years without gum (and I LOVE chocolate, coffee shops, and gum)! A year wearing only American Made should be the hardest yet, though*.
