I’m attempting to raise money as a last resort to try and fix my current financial situation. Between $5k in rental, loans and monthly bills…I’m not sure I can make it.
i’m a college student who is currently attending Arizona State University online. Im attempting to become a software engineer and I’m halfway through my second year. I live in New London Connecticut in a two bedroom apartment with my boyfriend, a five month old cat and a four year old Australian Shepard. This is the only family I have and can lean on for mental support but I’m so tired at the end of the day. I don’t know my father and my mother threw me out at 17.
Money has been really tight ever since last year and with the increase in rent and the swap of jobs has made it worse. I’m making less than I have in the past year despite working 50 hours a week on top of summer classes. I have two different jobs where one of them is in retail and the other one is in food service. During my lunch breaks I work on my classes and when I get home. I haven’t had a day off in three weeks and I keep on pushing. I’ve turned to credit cards to pay for food, basic necessities and to fix up my shit car
I don’t like to ask for help. I’m on loans which are just now adding more debt. I hate myself for putting me in this predicament and I just don’t want to live like this anymore. My credit alone is a sign of help. I make decent pay but not enough to pay off the bills right now. I’m asking for $10,000 to just pay off the debt. I am OK with paying my regular rent and bills but I don’t have any family to really ask help for.
If you’ve read this far, thank you for taking any interest. I don’t expect any help but no one can say I didn’t try.
