my year 8 students had to do a budgeting activity pretending they were living out of home on $2000 a month and I find this written on there help I can’t fucking breathe

We had to do this and I was partnered with a boy whose parents are a scientist and a doctor. My family spawned the book: Top Drawer Villain - autobiography of a London criminal.
First of all, we had to choose where we would shop. He wanted to buy from Booths. “We are not buying from Booths," I snapped. "Get on Asda’s website right now." His face froze.
“A-Asda?" he whispered. "But that’s where… The Lower Classes shop.”
This was a good start.
We then had to decide on a menu. We started on breakfast. “Toast," he said.
“Toast," I said. "Great. Look, Asda has its own wholemeal—”
“Warburton’s thick-slice white bread. Nothing else. With olive oil.”
“You WHAT?" I choked. "You have olive oil, on your toast, in the morning?”
He frowned. “Who doesn’t?”
“Okay," I said, "but what will the children eat?”
He gaped at me. “The children? We have children?”
We continued. All was well until it came to what we would have on our sandwiches. We even sorted out the children’s lunch - they, of course, would get free school meals. “Yes," he agreed; "if we can’t even afford Bertolli then they can get school meals on the government.”
He asked what dressing we should have on our ham. “Nuh-uh," I said. "Can’t have ham. I’m vegetarian.”
“But I’m not.”
“Yes, but we’re married and we can only afford one sandwich filler so it has to be vege—”
“We’re married!?”
“Of course we’re married! You’re devout Christian - how do you think I convinced you to have children?”
He shook his head, frowning. “Well I want ham. You’ll have to put back the washing powder - I need ham on my sandwiches.”
We continued. Finally, it was dinner. “Okay," he said, clearly thinking hard; "for dinner, we can have… Chicken nuggets and… Beans?”
“Vegetarian.”
“Vegetarian nuggets then. And beans.”
“We need vegetables. The children have to have a balanced diet.”
“You and your children!" he yelled, and the whole class looked around.
“They’re your children too!" I screamed back.
He leapt to his feet, shaking his head and looking distraught. “I don’t believe it - I don’t believe you! I wouldn’t have your children!”
“Please," I cried, standing up also. "Don’t—”
“I want a divorce!”
And he walked out of the classroom.
The teacher stood up and stared between me and the door through which he had vanished. “I’m sorry," I whispered, "but we couldn’t do it any more. There were just too many differences - I can’t live with someone who thinks champagne is a budget.”
I can’t wait to see this guy when he gets to university.

As you can see, I pay three companies every month for my Student Loan debt.
ACS Education and NelNet are my providers for the Federal Student Loans I took for school. This is how much the government was willing to give me for my education.
Sallie Mae is the provider of my Private Student Loans, which made up the remainder of the cost of my education because I did not qualify for grants or receive any scholarships, and my family does not make anywhere near enough to have contributed to my education directly.
Please keep in mind that my I make $988.86/mo from work if I don’t miss any time + $200/mo that my dad maybe gives me if he remembers, totaling my monthly income to $1,188.86/month maximum (it is often less for one reason or another) which still results in me making $180.10 less than I have to pay every month in student loans.
These numbers are the best case scenario for me. This is, at present, the most I can possibly make in a month. I am working two jobs, one of which is not a source of income yet (the studio isn’t making money yet so neither am I). The situation will be slightly different in a few months when I’m also receiving income as a 2D Artist, but that hasn’t happened yet. I’m not sure how much I will be making when income from that comes in. I cannot factor it at all right now. But Right now I work 9am-5pm four days a week, and my nights and weekends are devoted to my job as a 2D Artist.
I’ve spoken to my parents. We’re going to do what we can. But this is absolutely ridiculous, especially when I am living in the best case scenario. I have two jobs. I don’t pay for my rent, utilities, food, phone, or internet. All of my money goes toward paying my student loans and it is still not enough.

I feel so relieved that French unis are less expensive. But I’ll experience the same thing as you if my parents don’t help for the student loan they made me sign to.
