I had a devastating experience last week. I know this is not that big of a deal for most people but I bought a brand new phone 2 weeks ago. It was 499 USD. I somehow managed to save this amount of money in 9 months from my school allowance that my father gave me. Then I bought a brand new phone. It was the most expensive thing that I got. All of my friends at school have expensive phones. I know I shouldn't care about other people's things I should focus on my own education but it still gets me to not have a phone. So I bought a phone I loved it and used it for a week. But then someone stole from my backpack at school. I couldn't find my phone after searching through my classroom and told the principal the situation sadly they couldn't find it either.
Now I don't know what to do. It's been 1 week and I don't have any money to purchase a new one. I kinda embarrassed to ask from you guys but I don't know what to do either.
Any help is appreciated.
