Because I’ve retaken one too many classes, I’m not eligible for student loans this semester. I have a job as a freelance translator, for which the monthly salary is sometimes high enough to pay for rent, utilities and food, but more often or not, I have to choose. I have some savings and fortunately I have wonderful parents who are more than happy to help me out when I need it, but it’s not much fun to be twenty five years old and still relying on the Bank of Daddy. And so this blog was born. Living on cheap noodles and water doesn’t sound like much of a life, so I’m going to document my attempt to make a dollar out of fifteen cents… and of course some tasty meals.
