It seems like no one else in my life can really help right now, so I’m now at your mercy. I’m an electrical engineering student at the University of Pittsburgh. I usually work and get scholarships/loans to pay for all my bills since my parents aren’t financially stable enough to support me, but I’ve had the most difficult year this past year on all fronts in my life. Financially, academically, mentally, socially, you name it. I chopped off one of my knuckles and had to get it stitched back on in the beginning of my fall semester last year, then sprained my ankle the following weekend, which crippled me just enough to not be able to write and forfeit the semester as a result. The lingering anxiety and depression from that semester continued to fester and snowball into the spring, causing me to fail all of my classes. I’ve literally gone to everyone for help. I’ve gone to people I didn’t even know existed at my university, I’ve gone to people I’ve become close to, and even my girlfriend. I’ve exhausted my network of people that could help. It’s unfortunate because I’ve helped many people in the past through the different organizations I’ve been involved in, community service, etc. I just want to help people all the time so much I tend to forget about myself. Now I’ve exhausted myself in all the categories I mentioned above. Please, if you could even spare a dollar or something, I’d be ever so grateful to you. Thank you.
*if you’re wondering why it’s called Juicy Pineapples, I tried to start a clothing brand to support myself but all I really have now is the website and some clothes. Feel free to support if you want!
