I went away for a while. Financially speaking, subsistence has been very difficult. I’m living off federal student financial aid. After tuition, books, and rent, is paid I have less than $300 a month in discretionary income. The search for a part-time job continues. I have applied for over a dozen paralegal/legal positions and have not received any responses yet.
Besides the bleak financial situation, everything else is going well. My, grades are improving, mother is well and I have started talking to my younger brother after nearly 10 years of voluntarily imposed disconnection.
