Ask for Help
This is me asking for help. My name is William and I am 19 years old and I need help paying for rent tomorrow, September 1st. I just finished my summer break and I just started renting my first house with my friend Daniel in Merced, Ca. We are both very excited, we have a place to call our own now and we have plans of spicing it up in the coming months. We want to get a couch and/or futon for the living room, patio set for the backyard, and a table and some chairs for the kitchen. It is a small place but nonetheless it is my proudest possession so far. Me and Daniel met 2 years ago when we roomed together our freshman year of college at UC Merced. We have many likes and hobbies in common so it wasn’t hard to become fast friends and we have been roommates for going on 3 years while at school. At the end of last semester, before summer, we knew we would be rooming together again but off campus this time around. It would be much cheaper overall and we would have much more freedom in what we could do on a weekly basis such as go out into town. Over the summer I was working however my job didn’t pay nearly as much as I needed. It was enough to pay for my needs over the summer but not to save up for the future. We were able to secure a house for a year and I have been able to land a job. That being said I was not able to save enough for the first months rent. It probably would have been smarter to stay living with my mom however, I did not have a room and I wanted my own space, somewhere I could develop into what I had envisioned with my own rules. I am going to be able to start working next week, I am taking this semester off from school and I will be getting another job. The last 3 days have been spent with me completing training for my new job and searching for any way to make money for rent. I have tried looking for loans but I don’t make enough for them yet. I looked for online jobs that pay daily however everything I have found pays weekly and not enough to pay for rent. No one in my family or friends can help they all have other things they need to pay for be it school or bills. I also have been looking into other avenues of income such as wholesale real estate and an e-commerce store yet I have not been able to pursue either of these yet. I want to have a steady source of income to lean on before I execute either of these ventures. Once I have the rent for this month settled, I will begin to follow through with these plans of mine as I will have more free time to invest. This month I need $400 for rent and I know it’s last minute but I would really appreciate any help anyone can provide. I have a lot of things planned that will take time to come to fruition but I can feel in my bones that once I get past this weekend I will be able to start making my first steps towards a very promising future.
Thank you so much for your support anything you can provide is greatly appreciated.
