Look, I've always believed that being born with a silver spoon up your ass and not working a day in your life until you graduate because daddy is paying for everything is no way to live. It's weak, it's unauthentic, and most importantly, it's uninteresting.
You put in 15-20 hours of work a week? Good for you. Be proud of your labor. You go to school full-time? Good for you. Be proud of your labor. When you come to the finish line you'll be proud you did it on your terms and by your own sweat, not that of another.
Now quit whining and start finding ways to make life interesting and enjoyable right now. When you graduate you may have a little more money in your pocket but you'll have plenty of other problems you never imagined at this age.
This may seem strange, but I couldn't agree more with this.
I'll almost inevitably look back on right now as a time when I was sleeping with a hot 21 year old regularly, partying, having all of my hair, being in relatively good shape, and generally having a fucking blast. And I would hate, hate, hate myself if I were born into serious money.
Having said all of that, though...being broke sucks.
