Listen, I have not bought anything. The fire under my ass is that I am 27 years old and I live at my mother's house and I have for the past 2 years. I'm tired of being hassled every time I sleep all day because I'm hung over, or get a package in the mail, or haven't picked up my room enough. Imagine trying to bring a boy over. Yeah, well, it doesn't happen. For the first year I was in school getting my masters degree, but since August I've been working (teaching). I don't make much money, but I definitely don't need to spend it on jeans when I already have a bazillion pairs.
Just think of what that money is going to buy you once you have it saved up! For me, I fantasize about walking around my apartment naked, smoking pot, being hung over for 2 days, and living in a den of my own filth and not having a soul say anything to me about it.
