Jackie's 4get Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

Today's word prompt is: Together

We can’t live together anymore. When I moved out of my bachelor apartment, to a place in the suburbs, I was getting a fixed income and living in subsidized housing.
Subsidized housing made it possible financially, but what is unfair was I had to report my earnings to the government, which works out the same as if I hadn’t made any extra income. Do you understand it hardly mattered if I worked or not? I’d have to earn more than minimum wage to be able to get off Aish. Since I haven’t any qualifications, certifying me a higher paying job, I’d need to go back to school. I enjoy Typing; that’s all I can do it seems. I also can be a Nail Technician, but I found out I don’t like painting nails. It could be that I am admittedly lazy. In any case, I don’t have to work.

Living together raises our rent making it skyrocket in subsidized housing. A one bedroom apt costs us over $800/mnth. That is less than average rent regardless, I understand, but living in Calgary Housing isn’t standard housing by all means. Their buildings are old garbage. To live in Calgary Housing isn’t worth paying a lot for because places are less suitable. I pay less rent as a single occupant in Calgary Housing, because of my income but it isn’t fun when you don’t have enough.
Together we enjoy more. Living apart and single is harder on the both of us.
Personally, I am reluctant to disclose our affairs, but we’ve come to the point where we don’t have a choice. CHC won’t leave our living arrangement the way it is, together.
