23. Can't even imagine that kind of income
let's see, in 20 years of working, school and raising 3 kids, being on & off assistance...

I have NEVER banked more than $15-17K annually...and those were 2 very bumper years. On avg, i make around $10-12K, when i am working.
All the re-educating and life-experience means nothing when you can;t find work other than $10/hr reception/office assistant that may or may not be part time.

Recently there is talk among my newsie friends about a new project gaining financial backers...it would mean that there would be a salary for a full time reporter... dare I imagine what it would be like to make even $35K a year? ya, that would surely make me think i was rich for a while...it would be a nice novelty to have 'disposable income' for a change...
