when i graduated from college in los angeles, i only made 22K. so yes, you can.
back in 1996, and no i couldn't save anything because i was dating someone, and had to commute 120 miles a day.
Choson -- I live in the OC on 30 K a year, so yes -- it can be done. I just applied for loans for next year -- what I make from my freelance gigs and what Pepp has decided is enough for me to live on adds up to about 26 K a year to live 12 miles from Malibu. So let's split the difference and you can buy me Sushi on Thursday nights and invite me over to watch the Apprentice.
