Miss Independent

I have my own room, own bed, own closet, own bathroom, own tv and laptop, own car.

I have that dream since I was 13.

Still, 7 years after nothing came true.

And the bad thing and good thing is I’m living in my boyfriend’s house. Living in with your boyfriend is nice but when his too-nosy-mom and preggy sister are also in the same roof it’s different story.

For the past few months I’ve stayed here I’m so glad and blessed of course because they let me stay here even though I’m not paying any bills. But as the days passed by everything’s getting on me. Like Tita’s getting more nosy about EVERYTHING. It’s annoying, really! I can’t tell it here one by one it might took hours.

I know I’m overreacting but that’s what I’m noticing around here. I’m trying to find any room for rent around the school but I have no time to look.

I am being fed here for free, and I don’t have anything to say about that. I’m very thankful to God because He doesn’t let me starve to death.

Sometimes, I wonder what would by future would be. Of course, I don’t want to be a teenage mom, I have a big dream for myself and my mom.

I always wanted to go to the US. I know life’s not easy there but I prefer that than working easy-easy here and earn money enough for yourself.

I’d love to read contemporary books that sets in US — last books I’ve read are ELEANOR & PARK and THE FUTURE OF US – because when I read them it feels like I’ve been there, Florida and Omaha.

One day, I’ll be able to wander the streets the books describing. I can literally feel the coldness of the wind, the smell of freshly mowed grass, and see breath-taking skylines.

I can now imagine the feeling. If I’m just a rich kid I would go there without any second thought.

And If I ever I get there one day, I will never be happier in my life. 🌟
