Insights and Expoundings from a Permanent Pedestrian (Who Wouldn’t Have Seen This Otherwise)

I keep remembering a bumper sticker I saw walking from work one evening: Men are not financial plans.

Amen. There is a mentality that floats around this world that says if one marries, one’ll be better off financially. That is not a reason to be married. Both individuals should be financially independent before they get married. Both Just’In and I pride ourselves of the fact that we’re both college students with bills and we don’t have one bit of debt to our names. He was indignant the other day when we got an advertisement in the mail directed specifically towards college students that assumed we had an amount of debt we wanted to get rid of. I was amused and proud at his indignance.

Obviously I survived this week because I’m still alive and posting and haven’t had a nervous breakdown yet. Still sucking air and walking upright, as that hubbie of mine says. May he never cease to amuse me.

About The Original Kate

Along with artistic tendencies, Kate enjoys unusual people and is constantly striving for some sort of nonconformity. Kate offers a perspective that is thoughtful but well-written and full of images within the words. Other tidbits that might intrigue: she has very long auburn hair, and, you guessed it, her favorite color is orange.
