I just had a money-inspired meltdown. It’s so frustrating. I’m a saver, I’ve always been one, and I’ve been saving for these big bills for years. As a result, I got this. It’s really great, and I’m really lucky, but seeing my bank account slowly dwindle in periodic but large increments is slightly terrifying. I worry that I haven’t saved enough, and that once I’m done paying for grad school, the lovely cushion that I’ve always relied on suddenly won’t be there.

I wish I had brought papers home to grade this weekend. When I left work on Friday, I had stuff to grade, but I’d been so productive that week I figured I’d take a break over the weekend.

Then, as they got to the back of the line, they’d see my friend Brennan, then they’d see me, and I could tell that they were suddenly wondering if ALL the Madelines were men.”
the last sentence
There will never be a time when I don’t reblog this because it is my fave.
