I want to make enough money that if my parents want something I can buy it for them that same day…

That’s what one of my passengers said on the bus while I was working today. When I heard him say that I was like…hold on who are you?! Can I see who you are?! That’s pretty sweet. That makes me feel warm inside on this cold, rainy day. I mean…we’re in college to learn so we can have a job and be successful. And we all want to make money, who doesn’t? Money sucks, but we need it no matter who you are. But I guess I never thought about why I want to make money. So I can support myself, so I don’t have to worry about life. And every now and then I remember my parents, which sounds bad, but it’s true. I’m so focused on myself, that I forget about the two people who have helped me get to where I am today. They’ve paid for my education since kindergarten! Kindergarten because I’ve been going to private school since then. It’s true, I get so caught up in myself sometimes that I forget about my parents. So after my shift today, I called my mom since it’s impossible to make phone calls in VDC because reception sucks, and I’ve only texted her a few times. It’s weird, I miss my family and parents and friends back home but I’m comfortable here in Irvine, I don’t want to go back home most of the time, but I do because everyone and everything I care about is back home.
