I am a full-time student. I share a car with my boyfriend. He uses it mostly to travel to work as he is supporting the household. The little money he makes, we hardly get by. I am definitely hopeful for the future but right now, the times are tough. My car has major issues and I have no money to fix it. It dies in the middle of driving. I have attempted to fix it but the car still has the same issues. Now I am left with no money. I walk to my school when he has the car at work. It is about 20-30 mins on foot. My boyfriend uses the car to go to work and make money. It helps in paying rent, food, and basic stuff. That’s all we can do with the money he makes. The biggest thing has become transportation. I will be done with school in a year and I have worked pretty hard to get here. Now, when the situation is tough, I am doing everything to survive and keep moving forward. Even if that means I have to extend my arm to seek help. I am sure one day, when I am on my foot, with a solid job, I can do the same to somebody in need. At this point, I am thinking maybe to repair my car, which shouldn’t cost more than 2K or buy a used car for about 3-5K. I have been brainstorming every day on how to solve the issue. I have even applied to some donation cars online. Of course, the chances of them are low. I am just taking my chances. I really need this car to be fixed. I just feel so powerless. If somebody helps me, I will return the favor. Of course, it will take maybe 3-4 years to get on my feet and pay the loans I owed, but I will pay it forward when I am on foot. I am just so close to graduation and I really don’t want this to mess up everything. I will just keep on trying. I just need a little more time until I can finally work in a nice place and have my life together. I am emotionally frustrated but I haven’t let that change my attitude. As long as I keep trying, it should work out. Thank you for reading my story today. :)
I hope you can overcome your challenges well whatever that maybe.
