I'm accustomed to being poor now... all the money I do have is loans for school, I have part-time jobs but it's hard to work very much when you have so much unpaid work to do, like homework, thesis, etc.
I kind of think it's fun. Maybe I'm weird but I always have fun when I'm poor. My best memory from last summer is when I spent my very last dime going camping with my friends and I only had enough money to buy one grilled cheese sandwich all weekend. Perhaps it's cause I grew up never worrying about money at all and now it feels kind of like a movie.
I have a few safety nets though, and no kids, I'd probably not like it at all if either of those was true. And like everyone else, Zissou eats before I do!
