    You are many things but spokesperson for your generation isn't one of them.

    Again though I encourage you not to breed, being a cuck might be congenital.

    My kids just turned 23. Only been living in the states 6 years. Both doing exceptionally well with no worries. One in SF and one in Santa Barbara. Both saving and looking at getting an entry level place in the property market. So all your negative babble seems to apply more to losers with no initiative or drive like you..

    Bit of a contrast to their retarded cousins in Arkansas.

    I was young , happy , naive and thinking I was going somewhere when I was 23 too.

    Lol initiative. I saved around 70-80% of my money from age 16 to 30. All in all, a few go nowhere assets &
    a few value traps and that's it. There is no fucking way to get anywhere in this Boomer oligarchy. I regret saving my money.

    There is no such thing as a good deal on an asset these days. They are all value traps.

    My daughter's six and doesn't seem to cost me a lot of money recently. We spend a lot on magic tricks and LEGO but I probably would have bought them anyway.

    My brother has kids. He has no choice but to live in this house near his business. They've had to convert their living room into a master bedroom. A basic reno is gonna cost $50,000. Buying another house would cost over $600,000.. He's sorta kinda fuct

    If he was a Boomer in the 70's or 80's, the reno would cost $500 bucks. And the house across the street would be $80,000 tops

    Trust me, their toys get a lot more expensive as they get older.

    A degree in "media studies" or the like. Sigh. Would normally be a fast track to a fulfilling career in McDs I would have thought, but he does seem to have his eye on the ball. He was taken under the wing of a well known (apparently!) professional photographer pre-covid, so he must have something going for him.

    At least he is at Uni. Mine was trying to dodge higher education altogether. Finally won that battle, he's doing some valuation, propertry prices course.

    I wouldn't recommend bitcoin, if you can't recognise it's value in the coming storm it's not for you.

    I don't want to worry you but I have an A Level in Media Studies. Went on to fail an advertising and marketing degree before graduating with a Web Design Degree.

    Which is why I teach English in Thailand now.

    Mate!!!!! He's such a nice boy and you're letting him become a real estate salesman????


    You may look like a piece of roadkill but he's a good looking young man . . . he'll do well.

    But seriously? Real estate???

    I'm just relieved he is going to Uni.

    He was seriously thinking of all the cash he could make just by working full time.
