From The Fioneers …
I always thought I’d be poor, but I’m not exactly sure why.
I grew up solidly middle-class. I am well educated. My suburban K-12 public school system prepared me well for college. I didn’t go to Ivy League schools or anything, but I now have both a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree. There is no real evidence that this belief of being poor would ever come to fruition.
Except for one thing. In the back of my mind, I wanted to be poor.
