I fully understand that there are Reasons why I am currently working a crappy fast food job, and that while a few of them are my fault, most of them are not, and that having a less-than-fulfilling minimum wage gig is nothing to be ashamed of, and that an honest living is an honest living, and that I am going to grad school and looking for something better, and that I should not feel like a failure at all.

But. You know.

I have a friend who's in her thirties and just started working at McDonalds after having lost her job as a drugs worker at a harm reduction clinic months ago. There's no shame in earning money to keep yourself going.

I know this feeling. I am experiencing this feeling.

I spent years working in fast food being a single mother with a high school diploma, heard people say "Go back to school and better yourself" Went to university, got a degree and now I am working a minimum wage job in a craft shop.

I guess at least I get to come home not smelling like a deep fryer, so that's a plus.
