    I'll make a true confession: I never thought about how much I'd saved for retirement until I was about 35. And it wasn't because I was wasting time watching fluffy TV shows or drinking with my buddies at the bar. It's because I was too focused on the here and now, working my azz off in whatever job I was doing, plus going to school most nights to get a degree that would land me a better job. It didn't help that for several of those years I was teaching in California, where the CalSTRS pension alone is supposedly enough to retire on. (Who knows if that will continue to be true 25-30 years from now?) It wasn't until I came to federal service, and the lousy FERS pension, that I had to start thinking about what would become of me when I wanted to call it quits. Turns out, I think learning to manage my own money is a very valuable life lesson, and I hope to do better than the CalSTRS pension when all is said and done. I just don't think everyone should be too quick to judge all those who are unprepared. Like life, it's all a process.
