With cash you inevitably have a sense of overspending.
But with the card(have one from my account from the college branch) you decide to check your balance one day and the ATM prints out 2.36; it leaves you wondering whether you got robbed?
Stuck in a different state your mobile balance reads 0.40, you have got just enough cash to get back home, promises of job offers are only promises.
You are scared to make a commitment to some company fearing guilt when you have to leave them for a promised better offer. You borrow your friend’s system to check mail and write some code.
You haven’t had a haircut for months(nightmares of the last haircut haunts you)
You are scared to go back home fearing failure. You have friends who’ll help you out but not indefinitely. You reckon all is lost but faith takes a higher ground and a small voice within you issues an ironic laugh.
You can code but you’re not a ninja coder. You can translate ideas into solutions given enough stimulus. You’ll improve with your perseverance(you have been known for that.)
You were a rebel back in your formative years but always became one of the best. You cannot afford the luxury of rebellious acts. You derive strength from the small pleasures of life. You have an appetite for greatness that is overshadowed by the lack of resources and other emotional problems.
You have things that others would spend a lifetime without any knowledge of its existence.
Now, are you really bankrupt?
