Meet Zach

Let me share with you a story I heard the other day about a boy called Zach. It goes a little something like this…

Zach is 25. He lives in a 178 square foot studio apartment in downtown Brooklyn. Over the last three years, he has spent just $2,500 decking out his shoebox…sorry…apartment.

As a theatre major, who had been mainly waiting tables since graduating, he didn’t meet either of these requirements.

But he did have pictures of his apartment. So Zach got the job! Sometimes I guess it pays to be innately stylish…
