Hey my name is Kenny, I am 23 and living on my own for the first time. Who knew a pandemic would hit a few months after me moving out. I’m not really good at this I don’t like asking for help but I guess this is the time to learn to ask for help. I lost my job last month, and have been in search of one currently but I wont be able to pay my rent this month. It’s $1,495. I am currently stuck for the next two weeks as my roommate has covid currently which has postponed a lot of my in person interviews and stopped me from doing a side gig such as doordash which I have done in the past. Anything helps. I am currently getting certified as a notary to have a better side gig in the future and savings to prevent being in this situation again.
I was not prepared to have a layoff and am kicking myself for not having an emergency savings. I’ve shaved down all my bills as much as possible though and am really just looking to make it through this month until I can continue interviews and side gigs to get back on my feet. I have roughly 200$ to my name at the moment and that goes to my last bill for my car insurance and gas for my car to make it to my interviews. I am lucky enough to have a huge stock of ramen and some bare necessities in my house, but I cant afford to be late to my apartment complex again. I’ve been lucky a few times with them already a few times and I am on thin ice. What a crazy learning experience for my first year being out on my own, makes me wish we could all see into the future. Also I really do plan on paying any of this forward, once I am back on my feet I hope to donate to others too!
Sorry again I know I am bad at this, but asking for help has always been taboo in my family. Anything really helps at this point even if I cant get my money for rent, at least having some form of payment to help leverage my situation would be great. Thank you for anyone who took the time to read this you guys are amazing for helping out so many people.
Ive provided a screenshot of my lease with my rent amount.
Thank you again,
