Today I Learned, the LR doesn't have a TIL thread. So, here it is - the Lavender Room TIL thread for all things NOT related to politics of any sort...

TIL that one of my partners is resigning and our overhead is going to go up. Never did like quitters.

TIL - less staff = higher overhead. Not sure how that works.

Economy of scale. One less partner paying overhead fees but overall overhead not going down very much. So each remaining partner pays more

Today I learned that the second quarter of college looks like it’s going to be as dull as the first...

Luckily I’ve got two pretty fun math classes, and one of them I’ve necer had any experience in at all (econ 201, intro to macroeconomics) so that will keep me happy. The other one is calc 1 which I took in high school but want the review before slamming myself with the rest of the math classes I have coming. 1 day in and i’m already feeling like it’s going to slow. Oh well, review and gpa boost (:

And then English 101. Bleh...

TIL, New Yorkers are an arrogant bunch.

That is, assuming that UES mean Upper East Side, and the assumption that anyone outside of NYC would know that.
