This past semester, I took on a side gig as contract teacher at a college. Ever since the payments started coming in, my husband has been stocking it away in a Savings account. I ask what it's for and he says it's a "surprise" for me. As of right now, there is over $2000 in the account.
Of course, I am appreciative that he is willing to do something so expensive nice. Unfortunately, I can't seem to shake the amount of debt and financial straits we are in. Which is also why I took on the extra gig in the first place...
As much as I am grateful that he is doing something nice, is it worth it for me to say the money should go toward our debt and savings? If I sound ungrateful, please let me know.12 AnswersMarriage & Divorce2 years ago
I am looking to rent an apartment, and I've been looking into an up-and-coming neighbourhood in Toronto. However, what I can afford for monthly rent ($800) the apartments I've seen are quite small. I am a musician and teacher, which means I have instruments and equipment, so size matters. Some friends of mine are encouraging me to stay outside of the city and save to buy an apartment/house/condo. I'm not sure because I am very eager to move. What's the wiser choice?6 AnswersRenting & Real Estate7 years ago
I am a busy musician woman who has always had the dream of getting my ARCT piano degree. The problem is I can't seem to keep a consistent piano practicing schedule. I'll do great for a couple of days, then I'm off the wagon again. I believe that I would feel so amazing if I finally achieved this goal, but I can't seem to stay focused on it.

My best friend found a lump by her left nipple last week... I spoke with her today after she returned from the doctor. She was ordered to immediately have a breast ultrasound to make sure it is not dangerous. She is only 26 and has no history of breast cancer in her family. Is it more likely that she could have some sort of cyst or is breast cancer a high probability?4 AnswersCancer8 years ago

My ex and I broke up three months ago and I'm still really upset about it. He would tell me that he loves me and wants to marry me, but in the end it turned out his feelings weren't genuine. It hurt me, because for a while I believed him. I don't want to get back with him, but there are some things that he said and did that I want to confront him about. Is this a good idea or should I just leave it all alone?1 AnswerSingles & Dating1 decade ago
My friends and I sing in a large music group, and we've been singing together for a couple of years. Just recently, we've decided to start a business. What they want to do is have a partnership structure, but have EVERYONE in the group be a partner. I guess to have everyone invest in it. That's 12 people in total. Right away, a red flag went up for me, because something seems risky about that.

I have to choose between two cars:
1. A Used 2007 Mazda 3 GS at about $13,000
2. A New 2009 Toyota Corolla CE at about $20,400
I want to finance at either 48 or 60 months.
Obviously, the Mazda is way cheaper, however, the resale value is not as good. It won't be worth very much in a few years.
The Toyota is more expensive, but it doesn't drive as fun as the Mazda.

My boyfriend and I broke up two months ago. At the time I thought I was doing the right thing...however, now I can't stop thinking about him! We're still somewhat friends, and talk occasionally, but I miss him so much...I think I want him back. Should I tell him how I feel?3 AnswersSingles & Dating1 decade ago
There is a guy I like and I'm beginning to like as well. We are in the same program at school and we are both Christians. However, he is a follower of the "Word of Faith" doctrine. Before I met him, I knew about this movement and I disagree with most of what that doctrine states, especially "Jesus died so we could be healthy, wealthy and happy."
Am I being too harsh if I turn him down simply because of his doctrinal beliefs?4 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
Maybe someone will understand what I'm going through right now....I have a lot of people in my life, however, if someone was to ask me who are my closest friends, I really have no one to say.
