Post graduate finances

Having been a student at uni for years and not really embracing certain adult things, this piece of writing resonated with me.
The fuck-off fund

The best thing I ever learnt at uni was to not live outside of my means. Resist the temptation to blow money on expensive cars and designer handbags and brand new technological trinkets. I’ve used public transport, my feet or a bike for 7 years rather than drive to work (I hate driving too). I buy my designer handbags on sale. I don’t see the point in a watch that shows me my text messages when my phone does the same thing.

I’m glad I’ve always had a bit of cash saved so I could escape if I needed to.
