The Final Reunions I Never Had

tuenight.com — There are reunions you look forward to in life. For these gatherings, you plan to lose a few pounds ahead of time, book hotel rooms and rekindle memories by looking though old photo albums and yearbooks. And then there are the impromptu reunions. They are the unplanned, emotional and raw.

I Bank at McDonalds: Confessions of a Personal Finance Writer

tuenight.com — People assume that I'm good with money because I write about it. I'm better than most. I've managed to keep my housing costs below-market in one of America's most expensive cities for the past two decades. I dutifully sock away 15 percent of my salary (amplified by that oh-so-nice company match) in a retirement plan.

Giving Up the Blame Game - And Finding Adventure

tuenight.com — I gave up blaming others - or at least tried to - during the month of January. At times it was not easy, especially when we got locked out of the house. Or when the car battery died. Twice. I once blamed two people at work within a 10-minute span for screwing things up very badly.

Why Do I Blame Everyone Else?

tuenight.com — I'm Lauren Young. I am the oldest of four children. I am a mother. I am an ex-wife. And I am a blameaholic. I blame everyone else when something bad happens to me. I blame others when I break a nail, lose my Metrocard or driver's license, when I hurt my shoulder or when I find a brownie shoved into my rug after a holiday party.
