    giving, money  [html]
    I've been thinking about money. I'm not sure how to deal with the fact that some people are living in extremely poor conditions while others never even see such suffering. Most of my money recently (which is really most of the money I've had control over for most of my life) has gone to paying off college debt, but that should soon be done. So I think for 2009 I'm going to try to give half of my income salary to Oxfam.

    Edit 6/1/2009: This is minor, but I think this makes more sense with "salary" instead of "income". It's a small absolute difference, but it means it's easier for other people to pay me to do small jobs as I don't discount the money to the same extent (money - taxes - 50% combines to a pretty large discounting).
