It is entirely possible to accumulate savings as a graduate student on a measly stipend… just be prepared for years of boredom, loneliness, and slovenliness.

For the record: I have managed to save $20k over the past 5 years of graduate school. Apparently this is a major accomplishment, who knew? I certainly didn’t. Was it worth it? The answer is unequivocally, NO!

Hedonism is always the superior choice.



  1. A saving grace of campus life is the varied opportunities for engagement it presents, serving somewhat as prevention and cure for boredom and loneliness. Slovenliness is another story though…

    • it’s more amazing when you realize that his school is really dicking him over on salary. He *literally* works like 80 hours weeks. On top of that he still managed to save a lotta money. Arjun is pretty awesome.
