Life was great about a year ago, things seem to have crumbled quite a bit by now. I guess ill start with the most recent occurrence, that being my loyal companion of almost 17 years, leche, disappearing about a month and 1/2 ago. Im 25 so hes been around most of my life. Hes an inside/outside cat and never strayed far at all, I suspect it has something to do with my neighbors big ass dogs that I saw off leash the morning he didn’t scratch on the door. I didn’t even know they had dogs. Nonetheless hes gone now. I put posters up all around town. I looked everywhere. He was a legendary cat. And my best friend.
I had been going to school for aviation around the same time he disappeared, had everything set up, financial aid, and reliable transportation. Until it wasn’t of course. Spokane community college is a decent way away from where I live and when my car started having issues was about the time when leche went missing. Long story short, I dropped the classes cause I couldn’t get to school. Although now my car is running decent again thankfully, its crunch time. I had been taking odd jobs here and there and going to Seattle to make a decent wage for a couple months at a time but a lot of those opportunities went sour. I had had very stable work in the past before getting “fired” earlier this year. It was really a combination of me losing motivation and not getting a fair wage after all of the improvement and progress I had made. Just a shame really. I guess that’s why they say don’t work for family.
But yeah, Ive been living on my own for quite some time now and have been able to sustain myself and have a decent living up until now. Where my rent is due in 8 days, been applying for jobs left and right. Going in, giving resumes etc… The worst part is that the lease is in my mothers name. Ive tapped out all of my resources, been borrowing money to pay the last couple months rent and now I’m in debt. I will probably get a job interview in the coming weeks but It just wont be soon enough. My rent is 750. If I could just get enough money to get by for another month or two, and maybe enough to cover my debt, I think I can pull out of this for the most part.
