I would say that my family is pretty well off. They pay for my school and my appartment while i'm at school, however as far as spending cash goes thats all on me, I am also paying my car insurance and for any maintence/upgrades, which is currently putting a huge drain on my funds. I do not like to ask my parents for money for things but should i get in a dilema then I would ask although i would not want to and would probably do everything in my power to not have to.
My family, esspecially my dad, are very hard workers, granted we like to slack off when we can, but when there is work to be done we will work our asses off. My dad has managed to go from very poor to pretty well off over the coarse of this life. He was married at 18 and he and my mom had my brother right after they got out of high school, he worked his ass off, ran a landscaping company managed to pay to goto school and graduate and become a CPA. He has worked for the same company for about 20 years now and is now the vice president of their asian office which is just being set up in HK where he and my mom now live.
I have lived a nice life and managed to go places and see things that a lot of people probably will never experience, and for that i'm happy, but at the moment I wish i had a little more money for my own good but i guess for about the next year and a half i live as a poor college student until I get a job and start making some real money.
