9. I am fucked.
Edited on Mon Oct-24-05 03:36 PM by BushIsAPooHead
I spend 50% of my monthly income on rent. But I live in Boston, it's very expensive. :(

On edit: I don't have a roommate, which might alleviate some of this spending, but I hate living with people, so it's better for me to pay for a tiny studio apartment.
