By Alexandra Naughton@facebook on How My Obsession With Furnishing A Future Put Me Nearly $40,000 In Debt
tl;dr spoiled little rich girl whose parents paid her entire tuition discovers she doesn't know how to budget, finds herself 40k in debt, then whines about it in 3,000 words
It's written decently and surely nothing I'm about to say is in conflict with what the author is aware of but man-oh-man does it bring tears to my eyes to read this while thinking about the 90k in loans that I have, in spite of going weeks at a time subsisting on next to nothing in terms of food in a shared room in SF. I paid $650 a month to rent a bedroom here and barricaded my door at night to keep the cocaine addict in the adjacent room from coming in and harassing me.
I just can't even picture a life you're describing, even as a fellow writer with an overly romantic view of the world.

Yes folks, it's your head. That's also what the people who don't wear riding hats say. It's their head. But it's their family who end up having to care for them after horrific accidents that came out of nowhere.

"another, larger, group who left the work force at that time — poor mothers who couldn’t afford child care — went without notice."
THEN CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THESE PEOPLE AND THE INTERSECTIONALITY BETWEEN RACE, CLASS AND GENDER FOR FUCKING ONCE INSTEAD OF YET ANOTHER ARTICLE TELLING US IT'S ALL OUR FAULT
I think this interview needs an embedded photo of Firth's Darcy in the wet shirt, for...reference.
