Econominics 101: in loving memory of Ben

Yes economonics is what I called my economy class in undergrad!  I swear I graduated with honors!

Flashback with me to 2001 when gas prices started rising.....

my mom:  oh my gosh, gas is getting so expensive!  I need to get a smaller car!
me:  oh mom don't worry, just keep putting 5 dollars in like you do every time you go to the gas station!  It's the exact same thing!

Fast forward to, well today....

Me:  look Andy gas is so cheap, this is awesome!
Andy: uh Jen deflation is not a good thing.  Everything you own is losing value and is worth less than you paid.  Wages start going down but those student loans of yours continue to increase with the awesome interest rate, its not good.
Me: oh yeah that sucks

and just last April I was getting ready doing my make-up listening to the morning news talking about the possible recession and looked at Andy & said, "recessions don't affect me"!  He laughed the very next day when our student loan company went under due to the "econominy"

I think this must be why I went into health care because I know nothing about economonics :)

Ha ha Jen! Me either! Jen Evans and I were too busy harassing Mr. Epley and telling him he had a nice butt rather than listening to what he was actually teaching! Who knew that it would come to bite me in the butt? (Inside Joke for all you outsiders)

That comment above was from Bridget by the way. Not from my dad!

oh Jen, I LOVE YOU!
Seriously though, you are incredibly smart to go into health care (it's one of the most stable industries AND most needed!). Excellent career choice, my friend. I wish CA wasn't so big -- we live in the same state but are still so far away :( Let's be like Pam and Jim and meet in the middle...

Jen, you should make a book out of your blog posts. I love you :)
