I'm poor.

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. =(

    Welcome aboard, George! I don't know how young you are, but I would be glad that you've decided to take on this path while you ARE still young!

    And, if it makes you feel any better, my personal debts when I started out was closer to 50k.... Yeah. That still sores to this day.
