Can somebody please help me with this i dont understand itRead this excerpt from “Life Without Go-Go Boots” and answer the question.

Once I left home and went to college I was on my own, fashion-wise … . But I found I still had to reckon with life’s limited choices. After classes I worked variously as a house cleaner, typesetter, and artists’ model. I could spend my wages on trendy apparel … or on the lesser gratifications of food and textbooks. It was a tough call, but I opted for education. This was Indiana and it was cold; when it was cold, it was rainy. I bought an army surplus overcoat, with zip-out lining, that reached my ankles, and I found in my parents’ attic a green pith helmet.
