If i had known in high school how poor i would be coming into college i would not have been so excited to get here. I am a junior now and since my sophmore year i have had to turn down so many fun events and live the best i can. Thank god my parents pay for my rent so I have a place to rest and sleep but unless I pick up a second job then i continue to eat poorly. Ramen noodles and bread because that's what's cheapest. It's rediculous how poor i am sometimes, but i still push on. I just get so sick and tired of these people who complain about not having money when it's because they spent it all on dvd's, cd's, or crap that they didn't need but did anyways. They have no idea what it's like to freeze quietly in your room, eating a roll for you lunch with a glass of water. I have dropped 20 lbs since i started living on my own. I had the weight to lose but i still long for the day when i don't have to track every last cent in my checking account. Come june i start a real paying internship that will pay thousands each month but untill then i wait patiently and struggle to make my way there. Being poor truly does suck and i fully realize that now.
