Whatever -- a blasé life in redemption

61 notes

Hello. My name is M.
I am a freshman in college. My dream is to go to law school… But I don’t think that is going to happen. You see, I don’t even know how I’m going to pay for my undergraduate degree… Let alone for law school.
I had it all planned out in high school. I had a 4.0 GPA. I was in the NHS. I was very active in extracurriculars. I was a GOOD STUDENT. Not only that, I was a GOOD PERSON – a GOOD DAUGHTER.
I never got into trouble – I never did anything to disappoint my parents. In return they promised to help with college. When I lived at home I had a very good life. I never worried about where I was going to sleep or where to get my next meal.
Until I told my parents I was gay.
They kicked me out.
They emptied my bank account.
I left for college with $300 I had saved.
I don’t know how I’m going to ever pay off my school loans.
Don’t even get me started on medical bills. (The stress of being kicked out put me in the hospital where doctors found tumors in my liver and right kidney – nothing has been done.)
I keep applying for jobs – But I. Can’t. Find. One.
BUT I still consider myself lucky. I have to opportunity to get an education – many do not.
I am the 99%.

I am a freshman in college. My dream is to go to law school… But I don’t think that is going to happen. You see, I don’t even know how I’m going to pay for my undergraduate degree… Let alone for law school.

I had it all planned out in high school. I had a 4.0 GPA. I was in the NHS. I was very active in extracurriculars. I was a GOOD STUDENT. Not only that, I was a GOOD PERSON – a GOOD DAUGHTER.

I never got into trouble – I never did anything to disappoint my parents. In return they promised to help with college. When I lived at home I had a very good life. I never worried about where I was going to sleep or where to get my next meal.

Until I told my parents I was gay.

They kicked me out.

They emptied my bank account.

I left for college with $300 I had saved.

I don’t know how I’m going to ever pay off my school loans.

Don’t even get me started on medical bills. (The stress of being kicked out put me in the hospital where doctors found tumors in my liver and right kidney – nothing has been done.)
