The fact that my family have the economic resources to support me through this is something I try very hard never to take for granted.
That’s not a sentiment that gets articulated very much here. While I know it might not be representative of people’s inner thoughts, the cavalier attitude towards money at my university can be disgusting.
Some people seem to be treating this first year as a war on sobriety. And they’re perfectly within their rights to do so, but I can’t help viewing it as a poor economic decision, not to mention such a waste of all the intellectual resources at our disposal.
