Sometimes I really wish I would win in some sort of lottery and gain a lot of money.
Like, I could gift my Mum with that journey to Cornwall she has been longing for for years, but never could afford. I could enable her to live in an apartment where she actually has enough room for bookshelves and wardrobes instead of storing her books and clothes in boxes.
I would love to help pay the many pay checks my future-sister-in-law has to pay because she has to go to the doctor so often and can’t afford a good insurance because she lost her job due to her poor health.
I could tip people that are so kind towards me even though they don’t know me, and don’t even want something from me for it. Like the lady in the bakery that prepares my favorite snack for me everyday and reserves it until I show up. Or the taxi driver who gave me a ride for free cause I had hurt my foot and couldn’t walk home. Or the tutor sending me helpful links and pictures of book pages that could be helpful to me at 3 AM in the morning.
Sometimes it sucks to be a student with no job or money - not because there is stuff that I want and cannot afford, but because I would love to repay the kindness given to me somehow, and it seems that certain types of payback are only possible when you own money.
