It just pisses me off. Some foreign friends tell me,” oh you poor thing, you’re in such a bad spot… Your upsides are your survival instincts, being able to live on close to no money and no food, if we sent an american your age in your situation he wouldn’t last a week…”
I GET IT
I MAKE 250 DOLLARS A MONTH IN A COUNTRY WHERE PRODUCTS COST AS MUCH AS THEY WOULD IN A FIRST WORLD COUNTRY
I BARELY HAVE FOOD MONEY AND I TRY TO SCRAPE BY FOR RENT BUT DO CONTINUE TELLING ME HOW STRONG I AM COMPARED TO THE AMERICANS WHEN I’M PANICKING TO LOOK FOR CHANGE TO BUY A CUP OF COFFEE AT WORK.
some other people ask me “Why don’t you leave Romania? I mean, your parents kicked you out when you were 18, you speak English Fluently….
THAT’S BECAUSE THERE’S NOWHERE I CAN GO
JUST TO GET OUT THE TOTAL TAXES AND EXPENSES PLUS PLANE TICKETS WOULD ADD TO A CLOSE 2000$, MONEY ILL NEVER HOLD THAT MUCH ONCE IN MY HAND.
