I am in my Junior year in college pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science as well as in Mathematics. My expected graduation date is Spring 2020. I would like to mention that I already have a job on campus but it does not pay as much as I was hoping. I am also seeking an internship this summer that will hopefully rid me of my financial problems. I am a very ambitious student (and person in general) and I am really excited to graduate and be able to live life to the fullest on my own two feet.
I would also like to mention that I have never been as desperate for money as I am now. I pay for my tuition and I live in my own apartment and pay rent. As we all know, the United States college system really sucks the money out of students. I have tried asking my family for help but they declined not out of malice, but out of the fact that they do not have any money to give me. I have also tried borrowing money from friends but none of them are willing or financially stable enough to be able to help.
Till now, I was living fine paycheck to paycheck but recently, my expenses caught up to me and I am really tight on finances. I have not been able to keep up with my credit card payments and that really hurt. As all college students have to do at some point in their college career, I am living off of ramen noodles which is much better off than a lot of the world so I am eternally grateful.
The people I work for are very far behind on their paychecks so my last paycheck was a lot less than I was expecting and that hit me hard as there were a lot of expenses in the last couple weeks.
Some more about me; I live alone in a tiny one bedroom studio apartment (image included) that is perfect for a college student that studies a lot late nights.
I am seeking help in paying off my credit card and being able to get myself enough cheap groceries and more ramen noodles to sustain me till the end of the semester. Any help would be much appreciated and I will be sure to pass on random act of kindness to others that are in need. Thank you in advance to anyone that donates and may you find happiness, joy, and peace in your life.
