My Uncle actually lives comfortably with just under 30 k in a nice 1-bedroom apartment in San Fran, so yes, I do think people exaggerate their expenses. Oh, and he buys groceries, goes on vacations once a year, has an old Bimmer, etc. Nothing too extravagant, but definitely enough to get by.
how's he afford his porn collection?

And on that note, I'm off to bed...with my warm down comforter that I spent more money on than I needed too since I really could've just used my blanket and slept in my long johns...

I plan on buying my suits for 15 dollars at the thrift store if at all possible. I won't be buying them at any sort of expensive place if I can help it. As long as I look decent, would the partners even give a damn?

I've pretty much concluded that being a lawyer will probably suck and I am doing it for the money and apparent prestige that comes with the job. I want to start my own business and I need $$$ to get that started, so there's another reason. It's also a good job to fall back on in case my other sh*t doesn't work out.

I definitely have other interests, but I just know that my BA in Psych won't get me sh*t, so I need an advanced degree either way. I feel some what trapped in my situation. I don't want to be a lawyer, but I need money to live and eventually do what I want to do with my life - i.e start my own business, maybe pursue becoming a sports agent, work independently and on my own schedule, etc.

Anyone else feel trapped in a no-win situation?

I post for the entertainment factor.

Why would I be kidding?

I don't need some sort of hand-made italian suit for $3000.

If I can get a decent suit for $100, so much the better.

If I can get a decent suit for $15, then I have saved that much more.

Really, the thrift store suits look rather nice. I'd like to buy one, and I may actually splurge on one, as I don't have a full suit as of right now.
