Call me Juan! I’m 21 years old….uh Colombian in Japan. Used to live in Australia since I was 12, but moved to Japan to study, currently in HAL TOKYO.
Alright, okay, this is my first time on this place and the only place I know that works this way. Literally found out about this through a desperate Google search as I tremble in probably a little shame. That’s just uh, how I am.
Shame because I’ve never been one to enjoy asking money of anyone, not even my parents, and while I can ask from them right now…I’ve already done too much of that in the past. I’ve always been relying on my father to give me money and money and money and I mean sure that makes sense since he IS my father, I’ve become so…upset? I dunno I just…I feel bad having to keep asking more from him when I can’t give anything back right now.
I’m in Japan right now, moved in about….1 and a half months ago? And well yeah the initial rent costs were pretty brutal on my wallet and the money I saved up the time I was working kinda got devoured by rent, transport, school, a few extra stuff that I needed to pay to the council from the last time I was here the year before, which was some….I think these were pension payments? Well whatever they were, I paid for a fair bunch of stuff, plus food, though thankfully we get breakfast and dinner in the place I’m currently in, so buying food isn’t a huge problem till uh….well, till like this week, since it’s Golden Week.
I’ve been pretty much eating as minimal as possible every day to not use up my food and the final 137 AUD (about 10,000 JPY) on my bank account. It’s brutal, yeah. And I’m gonna have to withdraw that like today or tomorrow. Probably later, since I need that money in cash so I can buy my train tickets and this will hopefully last me a month.
I’ve also applied for work, which worked out! But I needed to do some complicated weird procedure to open the bank account, which I did, buuuut the request went through like….5 days before Golden Week, and because Golden Week here means nobody works for like a whole week, then my wait for the bank account turned from 5-10 days to uh….3 weeks. Yep.
Anyways I feel like I’ve veered off the main point. The point is I want…some help please. And I don’t want to keep being a pain in the backside for my father. If there was anyone out there who could help me get…maybe like another 20,000 JPY minimum in my PayPal (uh the more the better? Like I need at least 71,000 JPY to pay for rend and then another 50,000 JPY to pay for one of the entrance fees I asked the rent guy if he can split in two monthly payments (which he was very chill about, I probably could have asked him to do that in 4 installments…I’m an idiot)), which would let me buy more food for this week and have extra money for transport, it would be more than appreciated. If you want the money back, I’ll pay it back as soon as possible. I think I might be able to…uh, sort of ask the rent guy here if he can let me pay for stuff later so when I get my first payment from work I can pay them back, have a little left over and possibly pay whomever helped me here a little back.
I just…please I need help.
I know this is probably unreasonable but…Yeah. If you want your money back later you might need to wait for a while…maybe like 3 months later since by then 90% of my paycheck wouldn’t go to rent. If not then uh….Thank you so much!
I mean if you really didn’t mind just giving me the money without me having to give it back it would be flippin’ amazing but probs won’t happen because that would be weird.
But to reiterate…..
If nobody wants to give me money. It’s okay, I won’t die. Probably.
I’ll just have to ask my father again for money which I know he will give me to help me but….I really don’t want to keep having to ask more from him. He’s already done so much for me. I don’t want to keep asking..
I dunno I feel like I’ve been truthful about this? If you want any questions answered I’ll answer…Uh dunno what else to say.
Thanks for reading my wall of text…?
