I grew up in a very tiny town and we did not have any money.
I grew up working on my family’s farm and I didn’t mind it at the time. I actually really enjoyed waking up early every morning and feeding the chickens and crows. However, as I have gotten older I have started to resent the old life I used to live. The heating and cooling system in my house growing up did not exist. We had a fireplace where my mom would light fires if the temperature outside got too cold but we had no type of cooling system in the house. Even though we didn’t live in the southern part of the country that didn’t mean it didn’t get warm inside the house. We did not have one single fan in the house and not to mention we did not have a cooling system. Those kinds of things were for people that had actual money and that is something we did not have. I don’t blame my parents because I know they tried to give us the best life possible, but it is annoying that I had to live this way when I know other people did not. I wish I was able to live a life like my friends and their families and have a wonderful heating and cooling system in their home, but that was not the case.
