My family was poor, especially when I was 0-7. Poor enough that I thought getting a piece of white bread was a treat.
So it’s weird and humbling to think that this year our household will be in the top 5% of US earners.
How did that even happen?
I think inflation-adjusted I’ll make this year alone more than my dad probably did total from 18-40.
It’s so much better than what I thought my future would be: dead or in prison by 25.
