This story is taking me back (many years) to when I was student teaching. The school I was placed at was a good 45-60 min drive from where I lived with my parents, & I really wanted my own place anyway. I found a tiny efficiency appartment about 20 min from school & took a part-time job at Wal-Mart.
My days went something like: get up at 5:30, have cereal & coffee, be at school by 7:30. Teach at the high school in the morning, use most of lunch break driving to elementary, have a soft drink & some pretzels if I was lucky. Sit in the teachers' lounge & watch the other teachers eat tasty-looking takeout for a few minutes. Teach K-6 (music) in the afternoon, then go back to the HS for extracurricular groups. Go straight to work at Walmart from 5-10 pm. They closed at 10 back then & we had to stay & "zone" afterwards, putting away returns & fronting merchandise. Get home by 11:00, still need to eat supper, grade any papers, & write out lesson plans to turn in to my college advisor.
My only income was my minimum wage Walmart job, so I went without a phone & cable tv. I wouldn't even buy paper plates because it was cheaper to hand wash the dishes. I often wonder how I lived through that time. I was so tired, & so hungry, all the time. I did get very depressed but at least I knew there was an end date. I've wondered at times, though, why no one could see how I was struggling? If one of the other teachers had ever brought me lunch I would have wept in gratitude.
Then I also wonder how many people's struggles I have overlooked.
Anyway, great story! Glad I found it.
