I was using my time off productively yesterday (read: laying on the couch eating left-over birthday cake and watching MTV), and I saw an episode of True Life called I'm Moving Back in with My Parents. Sounds like a nightmare; I know. I have managed to finish college, hold down a full time job with benefits, acquire no debt, and finish my second degree (in dec); but in this economy, I am worried about that happening to me. I saw on the news today that some city in Kansas is closing 26 schools. I never considered when I was younger that finding work at all might be a challenge.
My roommate said something interesting to me the other day. She said that she thinks our entire age bracket will end up at the bottom of the work force permanently due to the economy being what it is right now. She said that just when our age group should be climbing the Career ladder, we find ourselves lucky to have a steady income at all. I don't know enough about economics to know if that is true, but it is an interesting thought.
