This might be the only picture I take while in Richmond because I was going to buy a disposable camera but I have only $20 left from my original budget and somehow I need to make that last until Friday night.
I love this city… but I miss my car, my boyfriend and my bed. I wish I wasn’t spending all my free time worrying about getting a job. I wish I didn’t have so much damn free time (because I keep blowing through my budget and thinking, thinking, thinking about all my scary financial problems). I wish, when I come home on Friday night, that there will be a check in my mailbox because people have miraculously realized that I’m too proud to ask for help and too scared to audibly admit that everything might honestly not “just turn out okay”.
I have just enough money in my budget for this week to take the bus back home tomorrow and I honestly think I might do it. I need to find a job, I need to stop wasting time, and I need to be home.
