    I don't need much besides food.  I guess I'm lucky that I can afford that, even.  There aren't many jobs to be had here.

    Oh Well

    Nah. ...

    Nah. If I really, really want something, I can get it. ^ ^ I just have to control my spendings and don't waste my money on stupid stuff that won't last or doesn't matter. And I don't use my money on food that much. =)
