This isn't a story of how I have been sexually abused or someone in my life has died.
The truth is... life sucks big time.
Even for us 'well off' 'lucky' people there are problems of a different kind.I'm facing a problem right now where I would like to go to university, Physics, foundation year. I do enjoy physics, I really do but I feel I have to go to uni because I have no other choice. Due to the current social, economic and psychological state of the world it is impossible for me to get a job or an apprenticeship. My parents who have provided for me thus far are looking at redundancy and cannot afford to support me through uni anyway and the government student finance organisation has let me down as they will not even give me enough money for the cost of my accommodation, let alone food and other essentials. What little money they give me I have to pay back anyway. It looks like I have to take out a bank loan to support myself.
So if I go to uni I cant support myself without going into massive debt and struggling to repay for the rest of my life.
If I don't I cant get a job and so cannot afford to support myself anyway.
I'm stuck in the financial system that swore to protect people who couldn't manage.
So no I'm not the victim of abuse or massive loss. I am the victim of lack of care from a country that 'cares' and the greed of the bankes that caused this global situation.
Greed and carelessness reign.
