Once, I romanticized the starving artist. No more.


"There’s something so romantic about being broke in New York. You gotta do it. You have to live there once without any money, and then you have to live there when you have money. Let me tell you, of the two, the latter is far better." —Amy Poehler

  4. Yeah, I don't really envy the starving artist types. I don't need a whole lot of money, but I like a modest income and a smallish place to live.

  5. I think we like starving artist stories when they've ultimately found success. But it must be true that so very many don't. And that is just sad.
