I was so relieved when I found a job because it meant I could stop worrying as much. I could give my parents money instead of living like a bum, I could start saving money to pay for interview flights, apartment deposits, a lifetime supply of Sourpatch Kids candy, and maybe, JUST MAYBE I can save up enough to travel abroad. I'm overdue for a visit to my grandma in Hong Kong and from there, it's just a quick hop over to Korea or Japan.
And so, (begin rant) it kind of sucks to have a conversation with a friend my age that always starts like this:
Friend: So do you think I should drop money to get [insert shoes/video game/game console/plasma tv/computer, etcetc]
Friend: Man, the [insert expensive item] I ordered still isn't here!
Friend: Yes! UPS finally delivered! I can't wait to install it in my living room in the house I just bought and furnished.
As you can probably tell, I'm a little jealous/bitter and more than a little annoyed that this person rubs things in my face like that.
