First paycheck

I got my first paycheck yesterday.

Even though I used to make money most of high school and college, the first paycheck you earn as a college graduate really gives you a sense of accomplishment.

Anyway, it’s an encouraging acknowledgment of the countless nights you stayed up playing championship manager (trying to conquer Europe with your U-20 squad) and the incredibly difficult decisions you had to make every morning (wakey or no wakey)?

The first thing I did was open a savings account. Not because I’m gonna save anything anytime soon, but only because I could.

And what was the first thing I bought with my hard-earned cash?

A cookie from Subway.

Not too fancy … but it tasted oh so sweet …
