I was fired from my job of three months a few days before Christmas. I was then invited to go on a trip to Arizona but I had no money so I had to hang around the hotel room doing nothing but sipping complimentary coffee. I made it through Christmas using the last of my savings. Unfortunately my mom's bday is today, the day after Christmas and my dad's is New Years Day. So the holidays always rip an extra hole in my pocket. Unemployed, the only way I make money these days is by filling out online surveys for gift cards. I won one to Starbucks and I am close to winning a Walmart or PayPal one. I got snowed in by a blizzard. If I get hungry enough I will walk to Starbucks and use my giftcard. I would drive but the snow is too deep. I found a disgusting tasting piece of frozen cheese manicotti that tasted like plastic in my fridge. I heated it up in my grease spattered microwave. That is all I've had to eat today. Such is life.

What kind of job were you at? Most minimum wage jobs have zero job security, it's almost a joke. Have you gone to college or have you considered going back?

falling in love is great, until you hit your head on the steel ground.
