“For a 24-year-old, this is Christmas–and opening your present is hitting refresh over and over on bankofamerica.com and watching your company’s checking account go from 60 dollars to 1.2 million dollars.

What the hell have I gotten myself into?”
Among Houston’s first purchases is a $17.35 splurge at Radio Shack.
