I am a broke college kid whose funds have ran dry. Although I have a job lined up for December I am still in need of some money for the interim period, about three weeks, and am looking to make about $50 if possible. Obviously anything will benefit me, so even if you only have a few cents to spare I would be extremely grateful if you were willing to help me out.
My parents have 3 kids, two of whom are in college and a 9 year old, and both my father and mother have expensive health conditions. My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship, and it takes four hours for us to see each other, same with my family as they all live in the same city. He offers to pay for my gas but we are both students and he a part-time worker paying for school, and I just don’t think it’s fair to ask my significant other to front my expenses. I really don’t want to be an undue burden on the financials of the people I love right now, so I am turning to strangers who may be in a better circumstance to aid me in this tough area of my life.
Every week I have a Thursday night class one hour away from my regular campus, and it’s really become a stressful cycle of wondering if I’ll have enough money to get my car there and back again. I wouldn’t be taking this course if it wasn’t a degree requirement for my major. Of course I also have to drive around my college town as well for certain class commitments too.
This semester I am taking 19 hours, and my regular school day ends at 5PM, making it difficult to find a job in the rural community around my school. On top of that, if I don’t maintain my grades I will lose the scholarships that allow me to attend this university. Please, this is a very uncertain period in my life, I just want to make sure I can get through it in one piece.
I know that there are a lot of people with my kind of story, and I’m just trying to hold on a little longer before my job begins, so if I could get any amount, I’d be completely ecstatic. Hopefully in a few weeks I’ll be able to pay it forward here.
