Hang in there Talia, you’ve got more courage than half the bay area “elite” that I’ve run into.
To all the self-righteous haters commenting, Do you get some sort of pleasure from echoing the phrase “entitled millennial”? As someone who is on the border of what a “millennial” is defined as, I find it so revealing of your own insecurities. Your stories about how you made it and never asked for a handout and everyone who enters the workforce on the heels of the largest economic downturn in decades is just a whining, ungrateful beggar, and should suck it up. I think it’s because you’re afraid. Deep down you know that you’re one recession away from finding yourself unable to pay your own rent. Criticism is free. So is compassion, and encouragement.
