Love (which I mean to love being depressed by) those sporadic social security statements that come in the mail. Shocked that I only made $7,497 in 2002 at 30 years old, barely more than the $6,672 I earned in 1995, one year out of college. No wonder I was so bitter in the early ‘00s. Didn’t crack the $40s until 2006 with $40,000+ student loan debt to show for it. Sometimes I feel like I may as well be making four figures.
