“This represents not living month to month. I can have time to learn things and I don’t worry about– So I feel like perhaps I don’t deserve to be where I am because I don’t have the education.  And you know, it’s one of those things where somebody comes and they kind of abuse what they have because they don’t know any better.  I like to think I’m not one of those people but I do see them all the time.”

“Well I’m living in a box but I’m making the box very, very happy.”
