It's hard when it comes to wages. Money is so tight. I'm living off of $20 for enough food for two people for two weeks. It's hard to stretch it when you have cats, dogs, and fish (13 aquariums, biggest being a 55) to take care of. It's really sad to see how people are treated as well. You do your best at a job and you make it to where try NEED you there, because you're the only person who's willing to work at your full potential and complete tasks, and they treat you like crap and give you h*** over it. Jobs are getting harder to find, money is getting tight, teenagers want to go to college to be a veterinarian instead if being a welder. Welding makes a lot of money and so many people are going into one career type that of you don't have good grades and potential from the start, then your chances are slim. I would love to have a career, but I might end up getting stuck with a job that I don't mind working at. Nothing that I hate, but I'd like to have enough money to buy food and support myself and my boyfriend.
Back to what Sparrow was saying ... It's a new generation. My boyfriend is an EXCELLENT cook. I burn everything. xD still, he wants to be able to support me, but he has so many health problems. He can't be working when he's coughing up blood and passing out whenever he tries to stand. I'm taking it into my hands to provide a good future for him. His parents don't want to deal with him due to lack of money and because they have two older children. It's not right. All the boys are old enough to own houses now, but with the way that life is, it's hard. Especially when you have hospital bills up the butt and trying to pay for and balance out everything. He has to pay $1000 to get his liscence back. That's a bunch of bull! He's never been in an accident or gotten a ticket, it's just from being so sick. Sure, there's a lot of stress involved with trying to help him out, but I would never abandon him. People kill me how they can do that. It makes them seen so heartless. Why do people nowadays have to be so cruel and mean to others? I would've liked to live back then when gas and food was cheap, where you could keep your house unlocked, where you could walk around at night. There's soooo many problems in the world today. Ugh ... (Gotta love how my rant varies a LOT ... xD)
