I always think everyone understands the extent to which I’m absolutely broke, but it always turns out that everyone has underestimated it and that I haven’t been as communicative of the fact as I could have.
For the world: I’m broke. I have apparently mismanaged my life. I am completely and unutterably broke. Why? Because I kept at my gainful employment for far too long. So now I am back on the job market. I feel a sense of rising panic, but I don’t know what to do about it.
I suspect it won’t subside until I’m back in school again.
