On your first paycheck

Coquette—I got my first paycheck.  I’m still in high school, and I feel like I have the rest of my life to pay off college loans so I bought a pair of great shoes.  Should I feel bad (as in return them and add the money to my college fund)?

Nah, it was your first paycheck. Go ahead and splurge. Enjoy the novel sensation of completing the cycle of consumer capitalism, because that shit gets real old once you have to start paying bills.
