|At the Still Point of the Turning World|
Monday, October 21, 2002
In an odd way, I've been very lucky with money. During the apex of the tech boom, I was pre-med and then in medical school and had to borrow money for every cup of coffee, so I missed the excitement and brag rights of earning thousands of dollars in a few hours of day trading. Consequently, I don't feel the effects of the current economic downturn so personally. In fact, now that I'm a working person, I feel better off than I was when I was a student (although my paycheck seems completely unrelated to the work I do--I think it breaks down to about $2/hr).
