I agree. Also, for young millenials like us who do not have a constant income (assuming you are continuing your education after you ORD), the returns we get from the meagre sums we invest are honestly almost negligible. I think it's a much better choice to invest in yourself, meaning to say, pay for experience and memories that will empower and enrich you!
It'd make more sense in the long run because you increase your employability and therefore your disposable income as well, allowing you to invest more.
Hey Anon, great job on saving money while in NS, definitely not easy.
Question, are you continuing your studies after ORD? If yes, you should save some money for your time in school.
If you're immediately out working and have secured a job, don't be guilty in wanting to enjoy a lil bit before your next phase in life.
Also, right now is the best time to pick up a skill someone would pay for. This would help you increase your income streams in the future, and if you're studying, you could do this while in school to pay for your own pocket money.
Would recommend taking a breather. Or even taking $1k out of that to learn something new via a cours...
