Then 2008 happened.

The economy came crashing down and my generation’s once-bright prospects and hopes were quickly buried deep underneath mountainous debris. Some never emerged from the wreckage as i-bankers snickered with the loot they ran off with as the new administration defied our hopes and never bothered to punish them. Sex and the City had been off the air for four years by the time it got a theatrical release, but we were too busy graduating to a decimated job market and trying to survive to really get much enjoyment out of seeing Carrie Bradshaw try on wedding dresses and take her girlfriends to a five-star resort in Mexico. Both of which cost as much as our undergraduate degrees that were now rendered more worthless than a Crazy Eddie gift card but chained many of us to a lifetime of debt servitude no less.
