Being broke is no fun! I have definitely had my fair share of times where I didn’t have a penny to my name but I think being broke makes you appreciate the things that you have more. I got married at a really young age, 19 to be exact. Neither one of us had much money but we had a little bit of savings that we used to move into our first home together. During that first two years, I was in college full time and only worked part-time so we just barely made enough money to pay all of our bills. I can remember doing odd jobs like working with a food vendor at the fair,
But even though times were tough every now and then we would have a little bit left over and we would splurge on Chinese food and movies from the rental store. To be honest this was one of the happiest times of my life! Even though we didn’t have much, we had each other and made the best of what we had.
Whenever I watch 2 Broke Girls on CBS I can’t help but think about all of the times I had struggling to make ends meet. This is a really funny show and anyone that has ever struggled in life (haven’t we all) can relate to this show in one way or another.
2 BROKE GIRLS is a comedy about the unlikely friendship that develops between two very different young women who meet waitressing at a diner in trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and form a bond over their dream of one day owning their own successful cupcake business. Only one thing stands in their way – they’re broke. Sarcastic, street-smart Max Black met the sophisticated, school-smart Caroline Channing when the uptown trust fund princess was having a run of bad luck due to her father’s Wall Street scandal, which caused her to lose all her money and forced her to give waitressing a shot. At first, Max sees Caroline as an entitled rich girl, but she’s surprised to find that Caroline has as much substance as she does style. When Caroline discovers Max’s knack for baking amazing cupcakes, she visualizes a lucrative future for them and they begin to save money to reach their start-up money goal of $250,000. As the girls’ cupcake tally expands week-to-week, they become closer to their goal and to each other. At the diner they are surrounded by their offbeat, colorful “work family”: Oleg, an overly flirtatious cook; Earl, a hip 75-year-old cashier; Han, the eager-to-please owner of the diner; and Sophie, the girls’ outrageous upstairs neighbor. As Max and Caroline climb toward their goal, we see that their “smarts” plus their “hearts” might just be the recipe for success.
