Yay I'm 30 and live in a super expensive city. I can either rent for the rest of my life or live in a shoebox in the middle of the city.
As I sat on the couch sulking, Copain leaned over my computer and watched as I typed, little by little reducing the surface area of the apartments in my search engine...
Copain: Are you becoming a French pessimist?
FCC: yes. I'm losing hope. I'm depressed. Our future sucks.
Copain: Hey! Don't be depressed - don't be like that! You have to keep your American positivity. Babe, our future is shiny.
So there you have it folks. I may have to live in a shoebox for the rest of my life, but somewhere, deep - deep deep deep down, in a land far, far away, my future is shiny.
