Will Miss #35 - being a "millionaire"

There's something really cool about saying you made "millions" last year. In America, chances are I'll never be able to talk about making a million anything (unless it's pennies). In Japan, even relatively modestly paid people gross around 2.5-3 million yen a year.

I'll miss the psychological satisfaction of being a "millionaire" of some sort, even when it doesn't really mean all that much in real world wealth.
