Can I ask for an MC from a poor enough family that they have to chose between which bills to pay every month?

I relate to this really heavily. Life used to be pretty rough for me ^^; Thankfully, it got better though. I think one of the most important things to remember is that it’s okay to accept help. It took me a long time to realize that, but if Admin Destin or Admin Rina would offer to buy me lunch, I would say yes. It was really hard to do, but I knew they were friends and just wanted me to eat. So even if you feel like you’re all alone, there is always a support system there for you. <3

  • MC would always go through all the expenses of the month, trying to decide what they could go without for the month
  • Sadly, sometimes it meant that they had buy less groceries just so they could pay rent
  • It was easier to use candles than to use the electricity so they didn’t have to pay as much on the bill
  • There were times their phone got shut off because they couldn’t pay the bill
  • It was a rough life, but MC had gotten used to it by now, and was a master at figuring out how to make things work
  • Sometimes, though, it just got to be too much and MC needed time to cry by themselves and get all that stress out
  • At first, MC would always reject help from their friends, because they didn’t want pity
  • But they realized it didn’t hurt to have a friend pay for a few meals 
  • Of course, as soon as Jumin finds out, he tries to help MC pay for everything
  • Furious, MC turns him down, saying that it’s their life and they can take care of it
  • Though he doesn’t really understand at first, when they explain, he gets it
  • Instead, he offers them a job at his company
  • Zen used to be in the same boat, so he understands, and always offers to have MC over for dinner or lunch, but he never talks about it
  • Yoosung always offers up his cheap and easy recipe ideas, coming over to make a big batch for MC under the guise of eating it together, knowing there would always be leftovers
  • Seven would just always give them extravagant gifts, refusing their protests and giving them hugs 24/7 if they seemed stressed out 
  • Jaehee would help MC come up with a very detailed budget plan and sit down with them to work things out
  • V was always there to listen with encouraging words and gentle advice, and to be a rock for MC to lean on if they needed it
  • Saeran would always try and help MC if they needed help with stuff and they had too many jobs so they were extra busy
  • Also, he would always answer the door and glare at the landlord if they were being an asshole about late rent

One state is about to pass a transphobic bathroom bill

It is about to become illegal for transgender students to use school bathrooms that correspond with their gender identity in at least one state in this country. The bill has passed in both the state assembly and Senate and will go to the Republican Governor’s desk for signing. It will be the first in the nation to pass such legislation against its transgender population.
