Who makes a flecked button-up like these Raf fw12 I missed out on? Any beloved forum affiliates?

I think I might've seen something similar from Norse Projects but it might have been a tshirt?

Eh I guess I come from a different perspective then most people here

I agree that excess money doesn't make you happy, but a comfortable upper middle class income does. (I would say that everyone here is probably there anyway or higher, buying 200 dollars knits etc)

Growing up we were so poor, both my parents struggled big time with addiction and gambling, domestic violence etc etc (also I grew up in front of the swamp between two potato farms haha)

So when I left home I had to work out a path through life, as I wasn't going to get support from my family (I actually have had to support them). The whole idea of 'just chase your dreams bro' was foreign to me, I really had to have a plan to a decent paying job to springboard myself into the career I really wanted to do.

I would say that having that plan made my life awesome, I was able to get a decent job, have a good income, pay off all debt, have good savings and I'm going back to University to do what I've wanted to do for awhile. Having a good job enabled me to help my sister keep off the street and get into therapy and treatment for her illness. Its allowed me to help both myself and my family, I've met my wife and have a great wardrobe haha. I earn like 85-90k, my wife earns slightly less.

All I'm saying, is though your decisions reflect your particular upbringing, psychological and social statuses, (and probably your status within the hierarchy of needs) I wouldn't assume that they in any way are similar across the board. My advice to people is to consider your options and realistically work out what they would be for your life - being able to do liberal arts and sort of just chance it with no planing feels really romantic and adventurous, but are you doing that without making a possible burden on your family or loved ones to support you?

Unfortunately, I didn't feel like I had that option.

Brooklyn Tailors iirc. Those shirts just remind me of funfetti.

Razele, I think what people are saying is that you should consider making like $40k/year (enough) doing what you love as opposed to 6 figures doing something you hate.  No one's saying you can be broke your whole life.

I would need my parents to fund Belgium. Furthermore, since they pay for everything in my life right now, I feel some responsibility to make sure they approve of big decisions such as spending a whole summer riding my bike and not doing an internship/working.

i say this not out of jealousy, but you have no right to complain about your life/your prospective future. thats not to say don't take advantage of offered money -- if they'll pay go fucking balls out in belgium. but still.
post #73335 of 98962
I'm not really complaining about my future, I just want to make decisions that ill be happy about in 5, 10, 15 years. This is the time in my life that the next step in the road isnt laid out before me. I realize I'm very lucky to have been given what I have (fwiw I pay less at Hopkins than I would have at UConn).


Also, just drove through Richmlnd, sup teger?!
