It's always great to get compliments, it can be an excellent boost to one's self esteem. The things we get complimented for can vary pretty widely, though.

"What do you get complimented for the most?"

Lately its been my glasses. Apparently I have the whole librarian look going on, esp because I'm always reading. I'm just hoping it leans more towards the sexy librarian version and not the crotchety old lady variety.

People say that I'm really funny. They also say that I seem very happy and that's refreshing.

My beard. It's still a surreal experience for me, and it's been happening for years. Strangers stop me on the street, in bars, or restaurants. At least it seems to somewhat impress dates when random people walk up to compliment me. I just wish I had something to say other than "thanks".

My voice.

Same here. I'm a woman and people tell me it's got a nice timbre and makes them "feel like everything will be okay"

Sometimes you just don't have any money and you have to make it work. I learned how to make the most out of bargains at the grocery store and know how to make food that is hearty and will last more than a day or two. Beans and rice are your friends, by the way. You'd be surprised by how many delicious meals you can make with just these two basic ingredients.

Look, unless you enjoy cooking, no one likes spending time in the kitchen longer than they have to in order to whip up something mediocre to eat.

We all like to assume that a big old scar has an amazing, hardcore story behind it: maybe a valiant fight or some life threatening-escape.
