Living here has been a life changing experience in the greatest and the worst ways possible. You have so many opportunities here, but what it all comes down to is who you are and who you know. Money is never been an issue and here there is no such thing as 'summer jobs' and under 21 year olds working. Unless you really have nothing better to do, you may seek out something that will earn you easy cash. You live in such a hard plastic bubble, that you don't realize how well off you are until you leave the country and actually enter reality. This city is built for big hopes and dreams, but be ready it may let you down many, many times before you even see a tiny spec of light at the end of the tunnel.
