Talking about insurance and illness or death is infinitely depressing. I don't like thinking of insurance as an investment - what good is an investment if I don't get to see any of its benefits? I mean, the only way you get a return on your money is if you die.
Anyways, in an effort to be more financially responsible to both myself and my parents, I'm diving in, head first. So, after this amount, health insurance, RRSP, taxes, gym membership, savings deposit, and Sick Kids Foundation withdrawals, I have oh, the disposable income of an 8 year old.
Ahh, the joys of growing up!
