    [–] [homemade] Cinnamon Rolls! jeweledshadow 30 points ago in food

    If you want, put them back in the oven a little more after the simple syrup. The water will evaporate and there will be a little sugar crust left behind!

    [–] What is the biggest financial mistake you made in your 20's? jeweledshadow 2 points ago in AskReddit

    The “academic scenic route” sounds like a nice, winding drive through the countryside. I hope you don’t mind if I borrow your phrase in the future!

    You go, girl/guy/person! Congrats on buying a house and reading the fine print! (If this comes across as sarcastic I definitely didn’t mean it that way- buying a house is a tough process and is a real achievement.)

    [–] What is the biggest financial mistake you made in your 20's? jeweledshadow 2 points ago in AskReddit

    I know how you feel. If you ever need someone to talk to, feel free to send me a message. I feel your pain. When I felt that way I started taking classes online- for me it was in Computer Science, but there are lots of options. Maybe through something like that you could discover a passion you didn’t know was there.

    [–] What is the biggest financial mistake you made in your 20's? jeweledshadow 3 points ago in AskReddit

    Majoring in English helps you realize that everything around you is a text rich in history and context. It also helps you learn to frame arguments that are persuasive no matter how seemingly irrelevant the subject matter. You learn to take disparate facts from one area and to apply that knowledge to deepen your understanding of something else.

    Being an English major has also really helped me in my new career as a computer programmer. I’m still gathering facts and piecing them together, but now it might be from that one lecture I went to years ago, plus a conversation I overheard between coworkers, plus a bug that I fixed weeks ago. All of that knowledge can be gathered and put together to create a hypothesis of the cause of a new bug, or a reason why I should put two people in contact with one another because they might be stepping on each other’s toes without knowing.

    I didn’t think about any of this back when I was 17 and choosing a major. Back then I just knew that I was bad at Physics, and had always liked reading. It took getting a BA in English to discover why you should major in English.

    [–] I get my relo bonus after the start of my internship. I can't financially front housing and flight costs for internship location without it. What did you do? jeweledshadow 2 points ago in cscareerquestions

    At least in the US, in Massachusetts and California. I would look up how bonuses are taxed where you are located- it tends to be ridiculous.

    Depending on where you are working, though, they might have some sort of other relocation service available that would kick in before your first day. Definitely ask your recruiter.

    [–] We rescued Sergeant. He is 18 we think and his first day of the rest of his life. jeweledshadow 30 points ago in aww

    I guess I hadn’t thought about needing a different size of horse being a consideration. In that situation I’m glad that leasing is a thing, because I hate to think of a horse being neglected because a kid grew too big for it!

    [–] Hands-free Mouse Control Suggestions jeweledshadow 1 points ago in disabledgamers

    I have been looking for a hands free mouse option, and the 3D rudder looks amazing. I use a Mac, though-do you know if there is something similar that would work with a Mac?

    [–] This is why literal fairy tales exist jeweledshadow 22 points ago in pics

    This was my first thought. Also, I would 100% watch that.

    [–] How 'Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse' Was Animated jeweledshadow 8 points ago in movies

    I saw it in theaters twice- once in 3D and once without. I actually liked it better when it wasn’t in 3D! The animation was beautiful without anything additional being added.

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. jeweledshadow 3 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I hope to become as strong as you. Thank you for taking this stance.

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. jeweledshadow 157 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I’m sorry you have to feel like a ghost to escape this kind of behavior.

    [–] I feel like I’m drowning in my new job jeweledshadow 3 points ago in cscareerquestions

    Do you have access to your supervisor’s calendar? If so, I would book a meeting with them, put 1-on-1 as the description, and then try to talk to them in person about it. That way, no matter what, you will get a chance to meet with them.

    [–] What is your secret recipe that everyone loves? jeweledshadow 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Can we please not use “gay” in this context? I don’t think that your beer has a sexual orientation.

    [–] What is your secret recipe that everyone loves? jeweledshadow 3 points ago in AskReddit

    I made cranberry ravioli once, and it was incredible! Fresh pasta filled with spiced fresh cranberries, boiled like normal, then served in brown butter.

    [–] What is your secret recipe that everyone loves? jeweledshadow 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I went to culinary school for Baking and Pastry, so people generally assume I’ve used some super fancy recipe. The brownies served at my wedding? Betty Crocker mix, follow the instructions. Perfection.
