Remit say what's up to fire, nation and share something interesting about yourself that most people don't know it's great to be back. Hi, everybody! My name is Romy, and this was a tough question because it made me realize I. Talk a lot and so one thing. We haven't shared. Is that one of my hardest jobs ever was when I was a soccer referee back as a teenager and it's amazing how hard that job is to be able to process all the different stuff going on on the field, even with six or eight year old or ten year olds and Just think back to that being one of the hardest jobs, but one of my favorites brother I resonate with you in college. I was the intramural soccer referee and I'm telling you. It's just human nature that no matter what the call is half of the people that are out there. Thinking made the wrong call, the other half are just like kind of happy. You made that call, but half the people always think you're wrong. Matter what's although it? It puts some good cash in my pocket. It was still a very difficult job. Exactly so fire nation as I shared in the introduction. We'll be talking all about the freedom class today, because the reality is our rich life is different than our parents and Ramiz does a great eloquent job of explaining this so religious dive on twitter, the signs of a rich life back in our parents generation.

A SIP of wine, and they kind of make you feel good, and then they give you this little gun you go. It's like a scanner and you scan the things that you want to add to your registry. And for a lot of people, especially in our parents generation, this would really be the dream you know you're. You're in Manhattan. You're sipping some pain and then you go and scan a bunch of stuff. And we went for an hour and a half throughout the store, and we ended up with about three things that we had skin and one of them was a five dollar spatulas. And I realized the things that are parents care about that. We're a rich life signifier to them are so different than they are for us for example back in the day.

Big Car. Lot of us don't even want cars back in the day club membership China Cabinet Coo. The hell wants a China cabinet. So not to say that they are wrong, but simply that they were for different generation and that maybe our. Signs of a Freedom Class are very different.
