Someone please tell me this idea is infeasible, insane, outright hilarious.
Next summer I'll be starting a gig as a first-year analyst at an AM firm, which I estimate to mean (after having spoken with current employees) that I can expect 12 hours workdays. Needless to say, I expect to put in more that than especially as a new hire.
The commute would easily be 2 hours door to desk. That means on a good day, I'd have 8 hours from the minute I get home to the minute I leave the next day.
Now I have a bad case of helicopter parents. "You can sleep on the bus." "We need to keep an eye on you and the people you socialize with." "Think about all the money you'll save," they say. The saving money part is nice, but I need to save my sanity here. I'm 20 years old, for god's sake. How on earth am I going to convince them when they refuse to believe that I'm my own person??
