1. Save money, be cheap.


2. Use said saved money to continue more years of directionless meandering in school than I want to say.

3. Finally discover what it is I ultimately want to 'do' for the rest of my life and why I spent so many years in school going in different directions. [Oh wait... shouldn't I be retiring at some point instead? Oh well...]
