I've been gone for a few days, Don't know if anyone noticed or a gave a thought. I fee like posting something, cause who doesn't love mfc right?!
The Reason I was gone was cause I was helping my dad out. He needed help in someway and we we're going to get evicted. He was being a nice guy and put up about half of his rent money cause a Person said they we're going to pay it back in two or three days. Turns out it was all a scam, after my dad found that out. He was pissed and just overall worried as all hell on how he could come up with the rent money. Now, I don't have a great job, I make very little. I work at a grocery store, I am a bag boy (I'd rather do this, than work at a fast food joint. The vegas economy is crappy) We had until the 12th of the month to come up with the rest of the money or else, we'd be homeless. I had maybe 100 bucks in my wallet,I gave that to him. We all banded together and I sold my entire movie collection, so did my sister, and my dad. Suffice to say we got the money, I didn't care if I lost everything, I helped my dad and that was the greatest feeling to have him; have a weight lifted off his shoulders.
I never open up like this ever but I feel we are little family here at mfc. I Know I'm not a staple here But I got to say It's nice to be a part of something even if we all haven't met each other.
These Are things I kept.
Can't even shout
Can't even cry
The gentlemen are coming by
Looking in windows
Knocking on doors
They need to take seven
And they might take yours
Can't call to mum
Can't say a word
You're gonna die screaming
But you won't be heard
