Women's Power Wednesday

   Posted On: March 12, 2014  |    Posted In: Random  |     Posted by: Broke Millennial®

If you haven’t already been able to tell, I’m not a particularly feminine woman. In fact, I wore bike shorts underneath dresses until an embarrassing age.

Roommates: A (possible) Financial Nightmare
