hello, if you are reading this, first of all THANK YOU for your time!
a little about me. I am a hard working young adult from the south east of good ole USA. I am currently waiting tables, trying to save up money for my wedding! i met the love of my life a few years back on my senior trip, and things just blossomed. He is the sweetest man i have ever met and i cannot wait to marry him. We are planning for a winter wedding at the end of this year! Time is ticking on, and the closer it gets, the more i start to panic a little. Since planning a paying for this wedding, paying off my debt has kind of been put on hold.
About a year ago, my old reliable car that i had all through high school finally gave out on me. After 265k miles, it decided to pass on. So with that, i had to find a car and i had to find one QUICK. I needed to be able to transport myself to and from work. So i went to a used car dealership, and because I didn’t have anyone to go with me at the time (my now fiancé was at basic training) i ended up going by myself. Long story short, i test drove this ‘06 jetta and signed the papers to purchase it. I didn’t have the cash to buy it, so i had to put it all on a credit card. $6000. As soon as I drove off the lot, within 30 minutes, my newly purchased car broke down. I called the place that I had just bought the car from, and they basically told me I was on my own.
So here i am, $6000 i debt, with no reliable form of transportation. i ended up going to finance a new car somewhere else, with a warranty for the vehicle and everything because i was so nervous for the vehicle to have any kind of problems.
Thankfully, I know have a dependable car. But i am still around $6000 in debt. With my big month to month car payment, full coverage insurance, my rent, and all other bills it’s been difficult for me to get that card debt down at all. And to top it off i am trying to pay for a wedding. Because of my financial state right now, we are doing a sweet and intimate eloping.
Anyways, i’m on here today i guess to beg you for money. This is very opposite of who I am, i have always been independent and non reliable on anyone. but at this point, i decided to give it a shot. Maybe you will help be my miracle!
even if you end up not “donating” to my “cause”, i want to thank you for making it this far. If you would be so kind as to send a prayer or a good thought my way, you can never have too many of those.
thank you for your time.
