11 May If Every Day Is a Rainy Day, What Am I Saving For?
Когато нямаш даже и надежда, може поне да живееш живота си.
“I know I should have invested in a sturdy pair of those bootstraps people who speak at graduation ceremonies are always talking about, but what does that even mean? Pay the rent, throw some cash at the phone bill, sprinkle a little change on the light bill, divide the remaining 20 bucks between the laundromat and a stock portfolio?”
“It’s easy to make fun of people for buying avocado toast with precious take-home pay, but what if what I’m spending isn’t my mom’s money? What if there’s no clear path from $0 in your checking account to a down payment on a house that’s fit to live in? I am sure there’s a financial adviser somewhere who could use trigonometry to explain how to whittle a three-car garage out of $20,000 a year, but since I can’t afford his services, I’ll just be over here in the bottomless-mimosa brunch line.”
