25 Year Old College Graduate Eats Ramen Noodles and Parties Every Weekend


Pittsburgh, PA – Gary Burns graduated college almost four years ago this May, but that doesn’t stop him partying every weekend. “Has it really been that long?” asks Gary. “House parties tend to dissipate after you graduate, so I go out to clubs and bars every weekend instead. It’s pretty much the same thing.” Gary can’t seem to let one other college habit go, and that’s eating Ramen Noodles. “It’s not like I want to eat Ramen, I just can’t afford to eat anything else. I mean my degree got me a great job that pays well, but I can only afford to eat Ramen for some reason.”

Gary said sometimes he drops around anywhere from $200 to $300 a night at the clubs on drinks, and bottle service if his friends join him, but he can’t really afford a decent meal. “My friends all didn’t get good jobs like I did, so they can’t afford to have as much fun as I do every weekend.” When asked if he thinks his friends still eat Ramen Noodles, he replies, “No, because they still live with their parents. I actually have bills to pay.”

But there is light in the end of the tunnel for Gary, he says he’s due for a promotion in a few months, and that he’ll finally be able to afford to make changes to his lifestyle. “Once I get a raise, I think I’ll be able to afford to take monthly trips to Vegas. I hear the party scene there is off the hook.”
