@aetataureate I mean that the reason I don't have to wake up before 7 is because I pay ludicrous amounts of money for a tiny studio that is within walking distance of my workplace.
@aetataureate well does your apartment have a bedroom? If so you can lord that over me.
I'm amazed that more people pick out their clothes than pack their lunch. Also, getting up before 7 is for chumps.
"Step one: get a million dollars..."
@eatmoredumplings I don't know anyone other than a few specific types of engineers who think the "STEM" market is all that great now. Also, interesting fact I've mentioned here before, even with all the recent growth there are fewer people employed in computer science fields today than before the 2001 bubble burst.
@TheDoctorsCompanion it's a good question. Medicine and law are generally considered "the professions," but technically so is engineering (though you can become a credentialed engineer in a unified 5-year program). But STEM is usually discussed in the context of "undergraduate degrees that, on their own, will result in a good job."
@sea ermine it's very clear from the list of high-paying jobs I posted. Everyone should just major in CEO Studies and become a CEO.
@aetataureate Nope. My parents did though and that threw my private loan immediately into default. Still have no idea what to do about that guy.
@jquick http://www.bls.gov/ooh/highest-paying.htm I see three STEM occupations on here.
I don't know why everyone is so eager to pay back their loans. I am happy to pay the absolute minimum on mine until they are written off. Could have something to do with the fact that, as of next year, I will be ten years out of undergrad, and my loan balance is higher than when I graduated.
