    Student Loan Kings

    Yppej:

    I created a thread where you are free to rail endlessly against student loan kings like me.

    Let me get you started.

    We're a bunch of elitist, bloated, self-absorbed, over-educated liberals who live off the backs of the working poor who we force to forgive us our loans for our masters' degrees in underwater basket weaving!

    I already beat you to it by creating a thread called Regression in Public Policy.

    And surely a liberal like you should call this Student Loan Monarchs so as not to exclude women. You wouldn't want double standards would you (like objecting to the polyandrous behavior of women in your atheist groups while engaging in polygamous behavior while you were married).

    This was all my stuff (minus my car) when I moved into my own apartment in May 2016 (before that I was living with house mates). Even today I have little more than this. I did buy some more cookware and a love seat, for instance.

    This is my kitchen! Oh, the affluence!

    This is my in-home recreation facility! Spare no expense!

    This is my bedroom, where the magic happens!

    When the alien overlords start demanding underwater baskets on pain of extinction, Yppej is going to feel very foolish.

    Hey as someone with a degree in Recreation I take a bit of offense at the "underwater basket weaving" comment! That was always a tired joke when in college in the mid-80's and people started making fun of us "recreators". We had a class where we took turns teaching activities to some of the "sports medicine" students across the hall. I actually got permission to use the pool to teach basket weaving because you do have to keep the fiber wet in order to weave! Everyone about died laughing and I got extra points for creativity.

    My countertops have gouges on the edges, cabinet doors are missing, etc. It has not been updated since 1950.

    I think my kitchen is nicer AND BIGGER, but while it's bigger is likely true, the nicer part is subjective (my building is probably 50s era so it's a different style than this more modern stuff, a different style which I prefer). Really apartments are apartments pretty much. I was going to say I'm lucky I have two laundries and two dryers! But they are shared for the whole apartment building not just mine.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.
