Joseph Finelli
Desktop support analyst, 25
Cleveland

Seven years ago I was just starting college. Now I am a desktop support analyst for a student lending company. I would say I am a lot better off now than seven years ago.

Of course anything is better than eating a can of SpaghettiOs and sitting on a futon, spending $349.00 on text books, and wishing I didn't schedule a 9 a.m. class.

Now I have a new car, a well paying job, and soon a house where my fiancée and I will be moving into when we get married next year. Life is pretty good on this side of town.
