"Don't give up the apartment." It was my first of what would eventually add up to 10 yearly appointments with Terry, a psychic who was popular among media types. But, real estate advice was hardly what I wanted for my $150. No, I wanted Terry to tell me what most people go to psychics to hear: that there was love on the horizon.
If you can make it here, you're told that you can make it anywhere, but "making it" consists of not eating for days because you can't afford it and hoping that the mysterious rash on your leg that you got when you moved into your new apartment will magically go away because you don't have health insurance with your new job.
