1. They're just material things...: 17:23

... and I shouldn't get attached to them, but it's frustrating coming back to find stuff missing: two of my Corelle bowls, three of my saucers, five of my mugs...

2. I can afford to raise my rent: 17:52

Is the experience of being able to live on my own worth the loss of a little compound interest? I haven't parked that money in long-term high-growth investments. I think the experience will be a good investment, and getting into it earlier rather than later will ease my transition.
