An ampersand is an interesting character. The symbol can mean many things to many people, but to me, it means there is something more to be expected. Things are not over yet.

It's also in the middle of my name, which I think is cool: R • AND • Y

I know that there are some of you who will say, “I do not make much, so it’s really hard for me to save.” The first part can be true, but the last part is simply because you are not disciplined in saving money.
