SOL20 Day 20

I would be lying if I said the stress hasn’t started to set in. Today my hours got cut even more. My next paycheck will be less than half of what it usually is. As someone who only works part time while going to school, it won’t be much. My only option right now is to get a second job.

It's not the same as being together, but it helps.
