    Wait, you smell that?
    After looking at the first 10 pages of this. I can only assume that most of style forum is: Trust fund babies, or Parents bought them into an Ivy League University and hooked them up when they were done with a good job or won the lottery.


    Nice looking places. I hope you enjoy and appreciate what you have.


    I'd post pictures of my apartment. But you wouldn't enjoy looking at it. I grew up barely middle class, parents had no friends in high places, they didn't goto college, I couldn't afford to goto to college. And I am still struggling my way through college, even though I am in my mid 20's, and most people my age all ready have a college degree. Back to my apartment. It's filled with thrift store/free furniture that doesn't match, carpet/walls/kitchen/bathroom haven't been remodeled since 1970's, and they used the cheap stuff to do it back then.... Place is a dump. But its better then living in your car.


    If you want to improve your station in life, wasting time on SF isn't the way to do it.

    Do you also post vague status updates on Facebook in attempt to get attention? I grew up with a single mother on a teacher's salary. A lot of financial aid and loans were involved to get through college. But now I make a decent salary due to hard work and having a little grey matter in my head. I would love to have the means to purchase a huge house and exotic cars, but I realize whining about it get's me nowhere in life and just makes me feel like shit. I don't feel bad for you. Suck it up and grow a pair.

    You don't necessarily need a lot of money to put together a tasteful, clean-looking interior. SOme of the stuff posted in this thread proves it - in more ways than one.

    I like clean, but invariably you just buy more and more stuff and the clutter increases. I have been putting off de-cluttering in NYC for a while, but it's beyond necessary at the moment. I like the idea of having a relatively minimalist city place.

    ack to my apartment. It's filled with thrift store/free furniture that doesn't match, carpet/walls/kitchen/bathroom haven't been remodeled since 1970's, and they used the cheap stuff to do it back then.... Place is a dump. But its better then living in your car.

    I'd venture a guess that a lot of the members here grew up in similar circumstances.

    You are absolutely right, whining does nothing but cause drama.

    After looking at the first 10 pages of this...

    "I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off. "

    How come there are no cribs in these cribs? All I see are cars and dining rooms.
