My concerns, like a lot of you, are saving money for travel, since I am in a broke/loan-owing/crap job sort of place right now.
I have have 3 roommates - that cuts down on rent greatly, and they're all friends, so it works. I bike everywhere (no car), I just got food stamps yesterday (hooray govt!) which will allow me to cook a little more (I love to cook), and drinking is a house effort, so we all chip in on some house cases of PBR. Hehe we're trying!
Cheers! To friends, to lovers, to warm nights and cold drinks.
