A very nice start! You had me hooked at hypervigalent. You’ve got a good writing style with sparse descriptive text that is just exactly enough for us to effortlessly fill out the scenes with details.

Cobbling shoes, mending and altering clothes, repairing appliances and even light bulbs because new things are economically out of reach.

I highly recommend MBUS, plastic and all. You can always bedazzle them to add some Gucci flare to impress the fellas... that's what I do.
You need to seriously ease up on the bedazzling. They’re sights, not a chandelier. Apologies to Wade Wilson.
