    I have 2 bachelors and a master degree.

    I have never held a full time permanent job. Every year I think it will get better and it gets worst. As of today, I have applied to 979 jobs. 5 interviews and only 3 ever turned into seasonal positions. I am on my sixth year of this. Today I had a copay and I was short. I over...

    I Will Be Retired Before I Reach Age 30

    I just want to share my story of how I have set myself up on the path to never having to work a job again and be financially independent and most importantly free. :) I hate having a job, but not because I am lazy. I am a hard worker. What I hate is the idea of having to go to...

    I Can'T Handle It Any More

    I'm so tired of constantly worrying about every bill or how we are going to eat this week and having to choose between toiletries and gas money. Now I just found out I am getting more than 200 less in food assistance and I have no idea why that would change. I'm pregnant and I...

    I Did 'all The Right Things' or so I thought. . .

    My father died when I was young, so I knew before I started high school I'd have to pay for most if not all of my college. So I worked hard, got scholarships, and had my first year of college paid. Great right? Then came second year, well I was prepared. I had been working hard...

    Just 2 More Years...

    Everything will be better in 2 more years(circa 2006). This is the theme of my life. However, 2 years turned into 6. My husband works hard but pays an exorbitant amount of child support. If the child support went to the children I wouldn't complain. The kids never have anything...

    Wow....it has been a long time

    since I have been on here. Some things have changed, some haven't. I am still in the same relationship...I haven't gotten brave enough to get out of it yet, even though I need to. I have however gotten a new job, a better one. Less stress at least. Unfortunately, one thing...

    Bah it sucks. I sometimes wish

    that I didn't miss out on some of these key life experiences because of financial status. I wish I could go to college, take classes without worrying about how much they are. I envy those who have that privilege.

    Can'T Even Buy Food

    Waiting on a paycheck from my boyfriends new job, still have another week left. 15 bucks to our name and running out of food. :( I have a 2 year old and I'm afraid I won't be able to feed him properly. I just want to crawl in a hole and die.

    I Am Tired Of Having No Money

    I don't want to say I am poor...that feels wrong. I have a family and they are well, so I know many would think me lucky. I know I should "count my blessings".  I know there are some worse off than me, I'm often told to think about them. That's supposed to make me feel better. I...
