I admit it.
I had a bad spending habit in college, spending in a carpe diem style when good deals came up. This continued through a couple years after graduation, until I realized that I had racked up a mass of consumer debt ($18000) - on top of my preexisting student loans and other loans from family members.
So, I took action. Job offer in hand, I began a renewed carpe diem mentality.
I'm going to be less poor.
I figured I should set this up since I spend so much time reading everyone else's. I felt so left out. =(
