i know what yah mean about helping your mom pay for things!
i myself am looking for a better job so i can help with those things/save up to move out with my best friend.
so i'm glad you have a job to help her out. i know things can be rough money wise!
& he has been. he lives an hour & a half away so we don't get to see each other as often as we'd like, but i do get to stay for days at a time when i do go see him. so that's pretty cool :) still working on getting the car situation sorted with my mom so i can drive more/see him more/get a better job lol
