Hi. My name’s Hunter and I don’t usually do anything like this, however, today has reached an all time high of anxiety in my mental state.
I’m 22, I have been accepted to go to college for the second time to major in Playwright. I love writing about anything, from fantasy works to even fictional history and non0fiction. I just love making ideas come alive on the stage.
I work at FedEx Ground as a package handler as well. Very good job, tough work, it has been working out for the few months I’ve been working there. Before that, I was largely in debt. I had $12,000~ in student loans, someone stole my credit card and charged an extra $2,000 that I did not want to pay and I’ve slept in the back of my car a few months last year. Plus, my first job I ever worked apparently never took out the proper amount of taxes while I worked there (2017 to 2020) so that’s an added debt of roughly $6,000. I’ve had my fair share of a rough life but I wanted to keep going. I want to do things and have the best life I can give myself.
I managed to beat a lot of this debt, still working on the last $5,000 for right now. I’ve had some support from my girlfriend throughout and just managed to stay okay. Unfortunately, I’ve never had luck with cars.
The first car I owned was a 2000 Honda Accord that I ran the miles up to about 500k before it died. Such a good car, but that was understandable. The second car I got for myself, a 2004 Ford Focus was stolen with my credit card back in May of 2021. Since then, I’ve been borrowing cars from people I knew, I was homeless again for about two weeks and finally moved in with my best friend’s parents just to have a place to sleep.
My grandfather passed away in 2021, about September and he thankfully gave me his car, a 2010 Hyundai Sonata on his will. I swore I would take care of it and keep it in good condition but… I think the universe hates me because two months later in November, the radiator blew while I was on my way home from helping a friend move. It later turned into a cracked engine block because the tow truck company tried to start it over and over but I don’t have real proof of them being the reason.
So now in March of 2022, I have had terrible news come to me. My best friend’s grandmother is very sick and his step-mother needs her car so I can’t borrow it for the time being. I had to call work and ask what they could do and they only gave me a week off, using all of my personal days, unpaid time. I don’t have a lot of money of my own right now, about $500 because I tried to put so much into my grandfather’s car and the dealerships with used cars around me are so expensive. I can’t find anything under $6,000 near me. There was a very decent car for $6,499 that is the cheapest I could find that runs and doesn’t have anything loose.
All I am asking for is a little help. $1,000 to help me get the car so I can finance it, keep my job and go to college this coming August. It would mean the world to me. Thank you.
