being poor is fucking shitty. i have to choose between:
- buying food,
- paying off my glasses so i can fucking see,
- putting a deposit on a place to live in the fall,
- or buying bus tickets to get to work.
and i’m not even that fucking disadvantaged— my mother still pays my phone bill. of course, that will end come september, when i don’t go back to school. because in her eyes, if i’m not “bettering myself” i’m not worthy of support. it’s so frustrating that she can’t see this as it is: proof that i am too diseased to function.
