My rent for last month bounced and I am $1000 short when it comes to meeting that payment without risking an eviction notice and have limited time to get the cash without running into an issue. I am putting minimal funds toward food and can positively say I am living paycheck to paycheck to make ends meet. As this is the first time on my own away from home for a permanent ordeal, I am using this as a learning experience to better myself. That said, I am unable to function without getting a little bit of aid to make ends meet.
A little bit of background: I am working in a low income area as a teaching aid. I also have several medical bills and student loan bills that I have been paying on top of rent. I can admit I am struggling but had been perfectly fine up until the hiccup of rent bouncing back and my not being aware of the situation until it was almost too late. I am grateful to not have an eviction notice on my door but know it is a matter of time before it appears.
I usually would not go for asking for aid but I do not have the income this month in order to meet that due. I have tried everything from applying for a second job to applying for an emergency loan of credit and have not had any luck. The job hunt has been rough. Loans won’t take me due to student debt, and I am downright terrified because my family does not have the sort of money to toss into this since my grandmother died shortly before Christmas. This came just in time for the new year and I have never felt this down on my luck before now.
Any help I can get will be greatly appreciated so thank you for reading and considering me. I am truly in your debt. Please know that I am not exaggerating in saying that. I truly admire any and all help to be given during my time of need and am unable to ask direct family since they are unable to afford my needs on top of their own. I am disappointed to have landed myself in this situation and hope that a little bit of outside help will be enough to make the world seem a little less scary for the new year.
