Predicted Drought

I’m trying to catch a quiet breeze in the park, but weed whackers keep whacking, trucks continuously run over speed bumps, and I think the nearby airbase has all of its pilots in the air.

I have just found out that my monthly payments for my student loan will be about $200 a month. This, I had not expected. $100, yes, but $200 a month is insane. I’m going down, but before I start preparing for my burial, I do have options. One being to postpone my master’s degree, true, I’ll have more debt in the long run, but man, the damage is done. So, I still can’t find a job, but I still have confidence that something will come my way.

The south Texas landscape prepares itself for another scorching summer, and with April showers far and in between, cracked dirt and brown grass will decorate the scenery.
