Assignment for 21 Jan

Hi everyone,

Here's what you should do before class next Wednesday:

1. Read "My Missspent Youth" by Meghan Daum.
2. Write a reaction paper (~2 pages, double spaced) about this essay, thinking about these types of questions:
What motivated the author to make the consumption decisions that she did?
Does she remind you of anyone you know (including yourself)? How?
Do her decisions seem rational? Why/why not?
Do you think she could have predicted/averted her financial crisis? Why/why not?
Did you enjoy reading this story?

Have a wonderful weekend!
