I spent $1,000 to fix my car, knowing I still had another $1,000 worth of repairs left to do. So while I'm saving up for that, I realize I need to take my dog to the vet, which won't be cheap either. On top of that, I really want to get out of this place. I've been here a year, and I already know it's not where I want to stay; but of course I have no money to move. I feel like I've trapped myself in this sh**y situation and I'll never escape. I'll always be stuck in this dead end job, making just enough to get by, without enough left over to even take a quick trip out of town.
