My parents have divorced for a long time now. My dad was freelancing, but managed to get a job teaching analysts English. Even so, somehow he barely has enough money to support me monthly. My mother is a real estate agent, but for the whole year this year (2019) she was unable to get any income. It makes my chest feel so heavy when she spends on meals that cost RM20-30 when the meals I have alone cost around RM5-9. On top of the fact that they both have to pay for my college fees. In my country and the city I live in, cost of living is high, product quality is low and our money's value is 4.3 that of USD. Right now I just want this money to buy my own meals and pay for some public transport and just feel secure knowing there's money in my bank account. I'd love to buy myself a brand new phone/laptop instead of living off second-hand or hand-me-downs, but I'll worry about that in the far future.
