Since I turned 21 years old this year I decided to try and be strong. My parents never taught me about the outside world like how to open a checking account, get a drivers licence, or get a job because I didn’t have a laptop when I was in high school. They gave me one when I got out of high school which was a bad mistake because my mom refuse change. She was upset with me because I was talking back at 18 and that’s when she stopped buying me stuff. This year I decided I wasn’t going to be treated like mess when I wasn’t in high school by my parents. I will not go back to college looking like a look what the cat dragged in. The only thing my mom help me with is my medicine hair,some personal items,financial aid, and food. I am sick and tired of just sitting here waiting for them to realize and say “Ok my daughter is 21 and we going to help her get a permit, checking account, and job”. Today ima try to fix my computer by going to Best Buy or go to JCpenny and get some clothes so I can go this interview next week and get me this sales job. Although I am having a hard time I won’t be looked at as a nobody or failure. I am through with trying to make other people proud instead of myself. Also ima search for a apartment too because it’s like since I didn’t get a scholarship and go off the college I’m on my own. There are other ways to get a scholarship not just in high school. This is my life not my parents and ima show them just like it is.
