I know the political and social reasons why this is happening. Neoliberalism is bringing the whole f--ing thing down. I'm just one of millions of other victims. At least I have a roof over my house, and a supportive family.
This is terrifying and infuriating, but it doesn't matter. No one who will make a difference cares. They'd rather play cat and mouse with something very, very dangerous.
So, folks, let's see what next week will bring.
I can't wait to see how the lenders are going to respond if we default. Shit is going to get ugly.
Now I think I can confirm that I will never own a home, I will never have children, and I will never live a life that I thought was within my reach. But apparently wanting those sorts of things is just crazy and selfish and entitled. How dare I want to have a home? God. I am so selfish and absurd! Same goes for wanting to have a family. God! That's even worse!
So glad I spent time reading and learning at the most elite schools in this soon-to-be ravaged, destroyed country.
