This is the generation that can read but plays video games instead, that wilfully ignored history classes . . . I have NO sympathy for someone who is in debt and keeps spending. I had no debt graduating from school because I worked every possible shit job every summer (no trips to London), got every scholarship available (a full ride through grad school) and lived in a dump with 3 other students til I was over thirty. Then, with four degrees, I spent 15 years renting a 300 squ. ft. shack in the woods til I saved enough from a college-professor salary (that never went over $35,000 til after 15 years) and bought a condo at age 45 (NOT a luxury one). I drive a 17-year-old great 90s Toyota, have no cell phone (not worth the money), and do not buy what I can't afford. THIS is how people lived in the good old days. Get used to it. There has never been a TV life except for a few useless rich people and a 1% of corporate sharks. Find something to do for OTHER PEOPLE that is worth it and get over yourselves.
