That’s great, really. Your hard work and thrift were rightfully rewarded. Just out of curiosity, have you priced tuition costs *lately?* They are often more than most people make in a year *entirely.* And have you priced rental housing lately? Because it, like college tuition and healthcare, have skyrocketed since you and your generation attended college. The path you walked was a good and fine path, but it is simply unavailable to kids nowadays. And trying to shame them for things that are entirely out of their control isn’t helping.
