Protecting Your Property

I’ve been the proverbial broke college student for years now. To be honest, I think it suits me! I’ve had a ton of fun, and I never had too much nice stuff to worry about. But now, as I head out into the real world, I’m getting a little anxious about the idea of having my own money and my own property. I’ll have savings, soon, and will be on my own when big expenses hit. I’ll buy big, expensive things eventually — like a house, for instance. And I’m in a serious relationship, so I’ve been thinking about engagement rings and freaking out about the idea of a tiny, easy-to-lose object that’s worth so much money. How do adults get through life like this? I feel like I’m not cut out to be anything other than a broke kid.
