I’m a fairly youngish person, 25 next month. I’ve been young my whole life, which means I’ve had little money my whole life. I’ve learned to live without, which was easy because I’ve never been “with”. In fact, I live far below the poverty line, making only about $13,000 a year.
Only out of school about a year but I’ve been doing jobs that I love for more than 4 years. I haven’t had a job I hated since 2008. I feel the trade-off is fair – do what I love but not make a lot of money.
Is this a valid excuse not to make money? What am I missing out on? DVR and European vacations?
Not sure how great the grass is on the other side but if you’re rich and wanna see what my life is like burn it all away and do something you love.
