I am feeling sick to my stomach because even though I have this job. There is no way I can stay here. I can’t afford it. What’s more, I don’t even have deposit money to put down on a place. Even the cheapest place I found requires almost 1000 dollars of deposit. Which I definitely don’t have. Eight dollars an hour, part-time–even full time is not a living wage. My expenses at a bare, but reasonable, minimum total about $1200. I could earn that before taxes working 37 hours. Was I going to start with that many hours? No.
Now, I must move back to North Carolina, live with my parents. Because of my financial situation, I have no other options. Even if I pay my friend rent- 450. If I wasn’t dating anyone, I wouldn’t care. It would suck, but I really wouldn’t care. It’s hard to tear yourself away from someone you love, especially when you know it might be the end.
If this is the end of my relationship, I would be very sad. I would not date again until my career was settled. It complicates everything too much.
If I moved, the plan would be this:
- Find immediate work
- Look for a job in Miami
I am so sad.
