I got paid recently. Normally, that’s a good thing, but this paycheck made me so depressed. I’m a current graduate student with a part time job to help with the bills. And, as you know, I was wrecked with sickness on top of sickness, so I couldn’t work.
My paycheck was 30 dollars.
I’ve made a post before about how money does bring happiness (or at least I thought I did, and then looking for it after writing this, I couldn’t find it…), and I think this helps prove it.
What next? Well, the plan is to continue to work, severely budget so I can catch up, and only cry a little. That’s the reality of this situation.
At the time of writing this, I don’t have a solution. I wish I did, and I’m sure I will soon. But maybe we just need to go through harsh realities without trying to solve the problem.
I still have the 30 dollars. Right now I’m debating which bill to pay, while trying not to cry. I just worry about the pressure of the dam, if you know what I mean. All we can do is our best.
Hugs (needed for me, if you’re willing)
