Timely rain

At present, the economic situation is not good as before and most of companies do not plan to hire some people to work for them. Hence, I have spent a lot of time to look for a reasonable job and still can not find a satisfactory one in the short time. However, it is worst for me that the landlord informed of me that the expense for the house will be expired in a few days.When I face such kind of problems, I do not know how I can solve them and who will give me a warm hand to let me go through the hard time. Perhaps, at that time, I should ask for help from my parents who will show me great favors to me and do not want to get some returns. But I would not like to tell them that in order not to make them worry about me. I am puzzled and something unhappy is around me all the time.So as to release the bad mood, I went to a net bar alone. When I arrived in the place, I looked around and saw only a boy sat in a corner. Because this is the first time for me to go out online, I chose a seat near his to benefit some safety from him. Opening the computer, I looked through some pages online to find an attractive game full of different weapons. Then I attempted to enter into the game, but it did nothing. At that time, the boy threw some runescape gold to me and told me that the gold is the key to the game. Indeed, I passed the obstacle written by the system and began to enjoy the trip in the world of the game. However, it did not take much time to run out of the runescape money. Where can I get the rs gold again? I turned my face to him for a favor. He smiled at me and told me that I can spend some money to buy runescape. What? I felt very surprised and the tears can not be controlled to go down from my eyes.Of course, seeing the condition, the boy became very nervous and gave me some cheap rs gold again. After I cried, I felt the bad mood had disappeared. Besides, I decide that I should face the cruel reality bravely and can ask my college students for help.
