My parents are basically my only source of money. I get a weekly allowance to cover my lunch and/or breakfast at school and that's about it I guess. Normally I get enough money to save a sizeable portion of it to buy something i want. Normally this is a PS3 game or camera lens. I feel that my generation have a effective work ethic but one that very different from previous generations . So eventhough our parents may criticize us for being lazy or spending to much time online but that is exactly what makes us so resourceful.
I've seen a lot of changes going on during the economic crisis but I never really felt the direct repurcussions. I don't think my parents really lost much. Definitely it made rethink my outlooks on the future as I saw a lot of changes in the demand for jobs.
