I don't spend a lot, I'm always the one saving money!
Oh really, you don't spend a lot! What about this fancy necklace?!
What are my parents fighting about? I guess my parents have problems money can't fix, that I can't fix.
Yes, you're right Maddie.
I'm going to Blaire's house. And mom, I bought that necklace for you as a gift from dad. But, you two need to go to counselling
Yes, I need to find a job too. We're spending too much time together
Oh my! I'm so happy, but what happened to being close to home?
Blaire! I've decided I'm going to Stanford!
I've learned that I can't control my family, I have to let them work things out. I can't control every aspect of my life.
I thought my lottery win would solve all my problems. But now I know that we make our own luck, we choose our own fate, and we control our own futures. That's how I should've been thinking from the start.
