I often sit and wonder how some people get super rich. I’m not stuck on getting rich myself. I’ve learned that being rich doesn’t really mean you’re happy or living out your purpose. Instead, I’m more just curious how, economically, people get rich.

I have always loved the idea of public transportation. You get to sit there and not worry about navigating traffic. You have time to read or if you have an iPhone you can even play games and catch up on the news. Recently, I decided trying public transportation for a week would be a great social experiment.
