If I had a dollar for every time I had a baby boomer tell me to go back to school, I would have the money to go back! I don’t know why a majority of older people think college is so accessible. I went to SFSU for two years and put myself in enough debt that I could of put a down payment on a cheaper house. It’s not crippling but like I said I went for two years. Also college isn’t for everyone. Why don’t people see that?
I work for a retailer where when I first started it didn’t seem too bad. You could make a honest career and many of my coworkers have. Lately they been downsizing like crazy and it’s not like it use to be. It’s sad to see people who dedicated their lives to a company and then have them thrown out like trash. I can’t make it out of part time but hey I do get pay a little bit higher than minimum wage and also have a 401k.
The truth is I do want to go back to school but for art. I just get wildly insecure by other people’s voices of “you aren’t going to make any money.” I know I should say fuck it but it’s also pulling out loans and etc but I hate my job and “getting a better job” isn’t that easy especially without a bachelors.
So I’m done with my complaining for today. Maybe one day I won’t be poor and stressed. One would only dream. I am content because I do have a strong support system but I would like to live the American dream of not worrying if you are going to have enough money for the bills or a job the next day.
Here’s some photos of me, my boyfriend, brother and some friends eating overpriced ice cream (kinda worth it) Its a custom ice cream place called the Baked Bear only located in California. My review is better than CREAM but Bi-Rite ice cream still reigns supreme. (I never had Mitchell’s) If you ain’t from the bay you won’t get the references. Make a trip to San Francisco the ice cream is great over there. But in language that everyone can understand. The cookies are good (really good) when they haven’t been sitting there for awhile. The ice cream is a little hard and could be done better but it’s not bad.
(I usually take better photos)
