I'm Not Spoiled But I Want To Marry Rich

Of course, I want to marry for love but being well-off wouldn't hurt too

I'm Not Spoiled But I Want To Marry Rich

No, I don't want to marry some old creepy Hugh Hefner look-alike. No, I don't want it to be a marriage of convenience or one that involves prenup. No, I'm not lazy with no career aspirations. But, yes, I do want to marry rich. I know it sounds bad, and your judgment of me has probably shifted since reading this article. I'm not as ridiculous as you all may think. Please let me explain myself first.

I want to live comfortably and not worry about money problems. I want to be able to take amazing extended vacations and explore the world. I want to give my future children the means to excel and go to college. So yes I want to marry rich. I mean it wouldn't hurt. I honestly don't think any of us could deny that marrying rich would probably have more ups than downs.

Struggle is just a part of life, whether it be physically, emotionally, or financially. I think that if I could take the financial struggle out of that equation, maybe life could be just a little easier. I'm sure that most you reading this, think that I'm a spoiled, entitled brat that doesn't understand a thing about the real world. That's where you're wrong. Money affects people. It decides careers, relationships, choices, and major life decisions.

Personally, I have no idea what I what to do with my life. Sometimes I want to go to law school, other times be a teacher, and just recently I wondered if I could still switch my major and maybe go to med school. The problem is time and money. Every time I just think I'm comfortable with what I want to do with my life, the idea of stability and financial burden pop into my head. It suddenly doesn't matter any more than I'd probably rather be a teacher than a lawyer. All I can think about are the things that I will have to give up and go without if I make that decision.

The more I desire that stability and excess of finances, the more I hope that maybe I'll just luck out and marry someone rich. I want it for the experiences, not the things. I want it for the security and not the title. I want it for my children and my parents, not to show off. I want to be able to give my kids stuff that I didn't have as a child. I want to give back to my parents for all the sacrifices they made and their dreams that fell short when they chose that raising me and my sister well was more important than the size of their house. I don't plan on having a multi-million dollar house with some many rooms that I never fill it. I don't want a bunch of expensive cars and useless designer toys. I don't want to go to obnoxious galas and pageants, and fancy dinners. I just want to ability. The ability to give back to the people who've helped me and the ability to enjoy life to the fullest.

I want to marry rich, because why not? If you find someone you love and they just so happen to have the wealth as well, then I don't see the problem. I'm not at all saying that I wouldn't marry someone if they weren't rich. I'm not saying I'm limiting my options to a man who only falls into that category. I'm saying it would be a nice bonus. Wouldn't it be nice to just live and not worry? I know I might not sound like much of a modern woman, wanting a man to take care of me. But hey, who says I can't be rich too?

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
