My little sister’s boyfriend coming over to meet the family. I’m no longer the only one whose relationships are subject to my mother’s scrutiny.
This morning, my little sister needing help filling out her FAFSA. Realizing that I don’t need to file a FAFSA this year because I won’t be in school next year. (Graduation is imminent.)
Things that make me feel poor: mentioning the above sentiment to a friend over dinner, and him not sympathizing because he’s never had to apply for financial aid.
Things that make me feel privileged: Being able to take things like financial aid for granted.
