I’m afraid I’ll never finish college. I’m afraid I’ll finish college with student loans I can never pay back. I’m afraid I’ll get a degree and won’t be able to find a job in that field. I’m afraid I’ll get a degree, get the job I dreamed of, and hate it.

When a financial institution asks me my “mother’s maiden name” as a security question.

"You’re getting too old to have kids" is the patriarchal control mechanism that hangs on even after "who will support you?" and "you’ll have no one to look after you" have been made obsolete.
