sometimes you really like spending money. I know. We all do.
But really, I think what you’re forgetting (esp. in light of being in the country for a long time is the fact that 1) you really want to travel, 2) you really want to experience the world).
therefore you save money for those trips and otherwise forgo fancy dinners, new clothes, and alcohol.
Yeah, that’s right. that’s why you wanted to save money. Just reminding you.
