I am at a complete loss for words and I never thought I would be here making a plea for help, but here I am. My name is Robert Hoyt and I am in need of assistance with getting a temporary place to stay and a computer so I can go back to work.
A little backstory, I left my parents house about 3 months ago in Colorado to start my dream of being a web designer and social media manager in one of the best places to start a business- Cali. Of course, me being 19, my parents forbade it and said I would need to get there on my own because I was being foolish and would never amount to anything if I took this risk. Here’s the thing, I saved my ass off for the next year and a half to finally leave my parents judgemental home. Mind you I started at 18 and it was very difficult given I had very little steady income because I didn’t have enough experience for a decent job and my parents demanded I pay half of everything while I was at home. Suffice to say I was very determined to prove them wrong and I saved just enough to get a crappy place with a creepy roommate…and now this. I lost all my things, including my work computer, which I swore I had before I was rushed out the door.
It’s been hard here with no friends or family and of course they all can’t help because they want me back home and I know what will happen if I go back. I’ll become complacent and never follow my dream, becoming exactly what I told myself I didn’t want…stuck. That’s all my family know, making it paycheck to paycheck and never getting ahead but I want better for my future and this disaster made me want to become someone’s helper in the future. A person to say “hey, I see your dream and I want to help keep it alive”.
I am not picky and anything helps. The goal is for me to do manual labor jobs and live in a motel until I can get a computer to start making real money again. This all adds up to about $2,000 dollars but I am not naive to think anyone can help with all of that so I would be eternally grateful for anything. Here’s to you and your kind heart for taking a moment to read this and possibly even help me out.
