“I thought I’d be rich by now, like multi-millionaire rich. Every day that goes by I feel a little bit more discouraged. When I was fourteen I thought I would be rich in my twenties, now it’s maybe I will be rich in my thirties. You know, it’s not even about being rich, but more about having the luxury of not letting money dictate your life. Someone asked me the other day “Why are you twenty-one and a sophomore? You should be a senior.” Well, I have been working full-time to afford school part-time. It’s like taking two steps forward and one step back. In a perfect world I would be part of a band— touring the globe and not having a worry in my mind about money. I like to think that someday it might actually happen.”
