I’d suggest you earn as much money as possible rent free while you have the chance. I worked nonstop throughout high school, even while playing sports. It felt good having money tucked away where I didn’t need to take a loan out for a car when I could buy a used one on the cheap.
If you decide to move out of your parents’ house, I’d be damn sure you have a good job with lots of savings just in case that job falls through. I’d also suggest finding a roommate and living as cheaply as possible so you continue to save money. I’m not sure if you’re choosing to go to college, but that’s another expense you’ll have to figure out. As long as you keep your nose clean and spend your money wisely and frugally, living on your own is as simple as living with your parents…except now you are taking on a lot more personal responsibility.
Welcome to adulthood. The freedom and responsibility is as liberating as it is burdensome.
The Mooch will be beside herself when she learns of the results of this research. A study, conducted at the University of Graz, Austria, determined that vegetarians are less healthy and their quality of life is not as good as those who eat meat.
The study reported their findings saying that those who abstain from meat are “less healthy (in terms of cancer, allergies, and mental health disorders), have a lower quality of life, and also require more medical treatment.”
Allergies are twice as common in vegetarians, with cancer and heart attacks having a fifty percent higher incidence than their carnivorous counterparts. Meat eaters were also found to drink less alcohol.
While important, these results and determinations are not unique. In 2010 the World Health Organization studied 30,604 people for an average of 8.7 years, tracking their diets and focusing particularly upon their fruit and vegetable consumption. The common assumption that a fruit and vegetable diet held fewer health risks was not supported by their research.
In fact, in some ways the opposite conclusions were drawn. They reported “A very small inverse association between intake of total fruits and vegetables and cancer risk was observed in this study.”
Perfect timing as I was deciding between Beef Ribs, Chicken, or Salmon….
Need lots of Creatine for my workouts…
