Okay, so I did some calculating, and here’s the scoop.
Right now, with my diminished schedule, I’m making about $100-$110 a week until something else comes up. I’m going to be starting some stuff in September, there are going to be a ton of school year jobs that I can apply to for the next few weeks, but right now, I am beyond screwed.
My weekly rent- and it HAS to be paid weekly- is $150. I trust you see my issue here. I have enough for this week, and probably next week, but after that- well, shit.
I also need to buy a $30/week transit card. Then, of course, there’s the matter of food money.
I applied for 45 jobs today, not counting a Starbucks application that allowed me to apply to five stores simultaneously as separate applications.
I cannot pay my rent on any kind of credit, and considering my landlady has had severe advantage taken of her in the past by people who essentially squatted in this room and financially abused her, I am actually severely afraid of her even finding out I’m in a crisis. She’s been through a lot and has had people stomp on her so many times that she kind of goes into defensive/angry mode at the slightest sign of anything even mistakable for trying to cheat her.
My parents can’t help me at all until at least next week- I asked- and my mom just got back to work after surgery so she’s a little low too.
So I’m not kidding when I say AAAAANYTHING is helpful right now. ANYTHING. I will even take note if you want me to and pay you back in installments, probably sometime in September/October (or earlier if things improve enough early on). But this is quite literally a matter of needing help for the next month before I wind up living on the street.
My paypal address is firstname.lastname@example.org and I can’t even tell you how much I appreciate anything that anyone can give.
[OOC: Sorry about pulling this over from my personal, but I really need help right now and wanted to boost it here to cover my bases. Carry on.]
