I was starting to think about an article about needs vs. wants, but some of my recent browsing has adjusted that train of thought.
A couple of years ago on my old blog, I wrote a post titled Second-Generation White Collar. I see that the link hasn't stayed with that post, it's based on a CNN Money blog post, "I'm First Generation White Collar."
As I start to pick up the threads of my story again, this becomes more relevant. Because when I was *just* a college student, I could side-eye the Greeks, and classmates who spoke of "luxuries" as "necessities." I could feel frustrated by the co-op interviewers who seemed to put too much stock in the clothes I wore.
