So my cousin just got this really amazing job using his degree, paying like 60K/year and i’m super happy for him, but the family was talking about it last night and my uncle looked at me after i congratulated my cousin and was like “poor brittani (that’s me. i’m brittani).”
like, i’m trying to put myself through grad school, one class at a fucking time, and i haven’t been able to quit my shitty job, and my cousin had a full ride to undergrad so he has no idea what it’s like to be in debt and my uncle has no idea what it’s like to have to pay loans or to have to help his kid pay loans and what the fuck is that? poor brittani? like i’m not doing the best i fucking can with no fucking money? that’s great. not only do i feel like a pathetic failure on a daily basis, but apparently other people see that as well.
