Completely not impressed.
Why? I’ve been working full time every summer break since I was 16 (a total of a little over 12 months of full time work) in order to pay for my tuition, to pay my student fees, to have money to pay for things going towards my hobbies (beads, yarn, fabric, dolls, etc.). It doesn’t sound like a lot, because I know some people who work part time throughout the school year, but I work to put myself through school, so I can afford to pay for tuition and everything else that I need to spend money on.
But I just found out that my dad, while he was on his trip, paid for my cousin’s tuition for a term at the university that he is attending. A cousin that I have never met. A cousin that my dad sees like once every two years, if that. He actually went ahead and paid for my cousin’s tuition.
Is it bad that I’m jealous? That my father paid for another person’s child’s tuition? Actually, do I care if it’s bad that I’m jealous? Just that I am.
I am so not impressed. Not impressed at all.
