Hi, my name is Colleen Craige and I’m currently a junior attending college. I’m currently living paycheck to paycheck and recently dived into the negatives in my bank account because of unforeseen charges to my account. I’m about -300 now and with the way my university pays its employees bi-weekly I won’t be able to break even for over a month. In that month I have to pay $420 of rent, a phone bill of about $120 and a credit card bill of $130. I wanted to apply for a small student load of $1000 just so I could break even and start saving again. Unfortunately, I need a cosigner and I have no one I can ask.
I already have a summer job lined up, in my field of work which is amazing, and I’m going to be working 40 hours a week, but that’s another two months away until I can work that job and I really don’t know how I’m going to make it until then. I really just need even the $300 to bring me back to zero in my account. I don’t mind living paycheck to paycheck, but I can’t live with nothing. I need the money to keep staying here and keep my job. I’m at a loss for what to do. Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
