My personal benefit

I find the transition from broke penniless student to single full-time worker quite amusing. Before I'd see something for $20 and I'd be like 'oh no that is too expensive' - now I think nothing of shelling out $40 for a really cute bag.


For example. I just coughed up $30 to LJ on the basis that hey, I've been using this thing for like seven years now and one of these days I'm going to use it as my playground for web design.
