Yeah, it’s bad. But thanks to a book I’m reading right now about Cambodia– First They Killed My Father by Loung Ung–I realize in the whole grand scheme of things, it’s not really that bad. Not bad at all.

So, if you find yourself complaining, pick up this book. Not only will you learn about a country’s terrible civil war, but you’ll find perspective on life, love and everything else more important than money.
