Flat Broke

So yesterday went something like this.

This girl in a brown v-neck shirt and a joggerpants and blue slippers fetched her once dead laptop in a pc repair shop in the city. It’s working again. Thank God because that girl can’t afford a new one and almost can’t afford the repair price.

That’s why she needed to calm down and find some way to de-stress herself because she’s broke. She’s flat broke..she’s…


She bought herself foods, plural form. foods. She managed to have some extra money, thankfully.


She took herself to a movie. To watch the last full show of ‘Imagine You and Me.’*Insert victory smile of a girl* Though, she can’t really smile the same way like before.

Although she had to queue and curse the situation silently for 45 minutes just to watch the last full show yesterday,still, it was a great movie! For two hours, she forgot she was flat broke.

After the movie, she didn’t want to go home yet. So she went to a convenience store to buy some 330 ml. alcomix

Girl: Can you open the bottle now?

Cashier: What? Where are you gonna drink this?

Girl: Outside.

Cashier:*sarcastic smile* oh, while walking?

Girl: ‘Course not, (idiot, inside her head)

and drank it in front of a fastfood resto. Crazy, indeed.

Then she walked to where she’s supposed to ride a jeepney back home.

And she went home with her heavy laptop slinged across her body.
