Your logic is terrible. Why don’t you ask the Chinese factory workers who assemble you ipods and ipads for 10 cents an hour whether they can afford ANY of Apple’s products? Or the Chinese laborers who assembled the computer you’re using to make your post? Nobody forced her to get a degree with no job prospects, choose to not make the effort to gain marketable skills, choose to move to one of the most expensive cities in the world, chose to rent an apartment with no roommates, etc. How about personal responsibility here?
The OP is a middle class, white, English speaking girl with a college degree living in America in the 21st century. 99% of the world would LOVE to be in her shoes.
