You don't have to live an ascetic life to keep your budget in check.
The media likes to paint a certain picture of what it means to be rich — huge mansions, expensive cars, high-powered Wall Street or tech-startup-type jobs. If you buy into that image, being rich may feel like an impossible dream.

It sucks, and I won't lie to you and tell you it doesn't. The day you walk out of Advising, head hanging down because you aren't going to finish in four years, makes you feel ashamed of yourself. You did well in high school; you were always told you were smart, expected to be smart, so why couldn't you make it out in four years like you were supposed to?
It's that time of the year again! With the school year rapidly slipping away and the promise of summer on the horizon, the looming cloud of finals week is enough to defeat even the most dedicated student.
