Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

You are your MEDIA. Consume carefully.

It's Friday morning. You are probably hungover. Let's aim for redemption in the next few hours.

FACT #1 Tabloid journalism in all forms (US Weekly, Perez Hilton, E!) is bad for your soul and society at large.
FACT#2 Thoughtful publications are good. They are a luxurious return to the classroom for corporate slaves and perhaps one of the few ways to turn office drudgery into time well spent.

Spend your time online in good company with a few smart websites:
The Economist
The Los Angeles Times
Time Magazine
The New York Times
THe Christian Science Monitor

Tend to your mind & tend to your soul. They matter most.
