Does anyone know what you do when you miss so much work because of doctor’s orders that you’re not sure you can pay next month’s rent?
I was so sick that I seriously was stuck in bed for two weeks, and now I’m scared as hell about figuring out how to pay for rent in December. I don’t have anyone in my family who can cover me. I’m working again, but my store is really tight on hours, and while I’m doing everything I can imagine to make ends meet, there just aren’t any guarantees right now.
I’m scared out of my mind and I really, really need some help.
“If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don’t bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who rest assured are not dumb and are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible psychological reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV Spring Break on Primary Day. By all means stay home if you want, but don’t bullshit yourself that you’re not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard’s vote.”—David Foster Wallace, Rolling Stone, April 13, 2000 (via alexlikestowrite)
