I’m 28 years old now, and I remember being straight out of college and some of my friends put themselevs on a budget. I didnt and spent all my paycheck on clothes, booze, and eating out, cause, YOLO. HUGE mistake. Now I’m struggling with savings and they’re purchasing homes. Seriously, START those habits early.
Also, my biggest regret is not moving away when I could. It’s a lot harder when you’ve made a career somewhere (or in my case am professionally licensed in one state). I wish I had moved to NYC, or LA, or Chicago, like so many of my friends did for a year in their early 20s. Even if it meant waitressing or finding odd jobs for a year. It’s so much harder to have those experiences lateron.
