Hi, my name is Robin. I’m 20 and have been making it on my own since 18. I worked for 3 years with a restaurant chain. Midway through, I had to change the store I was working at. I went from having a family at work to the atmosphere entirely changing. I coped with being a loner at this place for a year and a half until one of my coworkers began to harrass me in some unsavory ways. They weren’t going to fire him no matter how many other girls I had worked with complained about his behavior. I kept on trucking, making ends meet as I slowly leaked the motivation to create art and partake in the hobbies I love. I felt empty.
A friend had offered me to come live with him so I didn’t have to deal with the stress. We were very close, so I obliged. I put in my two weeks and began looking to jobs and interviews in the area. I packed up my things and moved them to his house. One day, he started getting weird and paranoid when I had misplaced my phone at a grocery store. When customer service had found my phone and I got it back, I had 33 texts stating my property had been set on his porch and that I wasn’t allowed to move in with him any longer. He said we were no longer friends.
I’ve since been looking into jobs in my area, unpacking my boxes once again. Honestly, I’ve been a happier, less stressed person without my old job. I have had free time to dip into my hobbies and found joy & improvement. I’ve started sculpting and traditional artwork too! I’ve been making digital art as my only medium up until now.
I should have stable income once again here soon, but in the mean time, I’m concerned about my rent. I need about $700 to make it to next month without stress. Anything would be a huge help. I thank you for your time reading my little tale of troubles. I wish you all the best and I thank you for your consideration. Feel free to contact me to chat further.
