I'm on a College Budget

I'm on a College Budget.
Five pajamas, two flip flops, and a some sweats are now the necessities.
I used to spend one hundred dollars on a pair of J's, but now I can only afford to pay for some PJ's.
I always wondered how do one begin budgeting, but now I am here living the reality.
I used to have prestigious wine, and fine rice but now Ramen Noodles and Capri Suns are my only refuge from going broke. I am on a college budget not because I choose to, but the budget chooses me. I used to get a shapeup hairline almost every other week, but this college budget makes me want to grow some dreadlocks. I never liked writing, nor did I used to record daily activities and stories but this college budget inspires me to write a plethora of top ramen noodles narratives.
I'm on a college budget and yet I do not plan to major in money management.
