What do you pack for lunch?

At the grand old age of 35 I'm still figuring out how to be an adult. One thing I wish someone had warned me of is that one of the hardest parts will be feeding yourself. A challenge I've had for years is… I just don't know what to pack for lunch at the office. Homies, what do you pack for lunch?

How do you tell your parents things they don't want to hear?

How do deal with gift-giving as your families and finances change?

Now that our brothers are over 21, do we still get them presents? And how do we tell them we don't want them to use their limited funds to get us anything? And can we not get them presents while still buying my younger siblings presents? And what about when our siblings have kids too? We can't afford to buy 10 kids quality presents as well as all of our other people! Plus, I don't want our kid coming home with a truckload of gifts. How have other Homies dealt with family gift giving as their families and finances have changed?

How can I overcome the dread of moving?

The thing is I'm freaking terrified. How can I get over my fear of leaving and just let myself enjoy this change or at least relax a little?
