My name is Tijana and I am an English teacher. I work in a Primary school in a village called Grocka. As it is commonly known, my salary is not something to be boasted about, having in mind that I am only here as a substitute teacher it really affects my financial situation. I can pay my bills and buy food but is this really why I studied so hard to live like this? I think there is more to life than just paying bills and living to my next pay day.
My husband is a mechanic and he really likes and enjoys his job. He is really into cars and car races. It started out like a hobby but I think it is his passion. However, with our salaries we can not afford to have hobbies like this, or anything else. He is a very hard-working man and won’t admit that we fell on hard times. We can not afford to eat in restaurants once in a while, to buy new stuff for our home, not to mention that we haven’t been on a holiday for 3 years. He probably knows this well but to proud to admit it and I get that. Still, I believe that I can make him happy and satisfied with his life even though I’m just a teacher. Yes, I supported his idea and dream of becoming a car racer. For years, even before we met, he had a car in his garage, waiting to be prepared for the road. As I mentioned before, without any financial aid, spending only the money he earns monthly, he could only make a little progress with the car.
In the photos I uploaded, you can see my husband’s garage and the car in it. When I took these photos it was early in February and the first race is in March. I still hope he can finish this car and make it ready for the first race. He needs professional equipment such as racing gloves, suit, helmet and sneakers. I was hoping I could surprise him with these gifts on his birthday on the 7th of January (Christmas Day) but…. holidays got my wallet emptied.
I know these stuff are quite expensive and hard to get where we live, that is, there are no stores that sell racing equipment here, you can only order them online or go to Austria for example.
All in all, all this may seem funny to someone not to say embarrassing, how can it be that someone can not afford something like this? But let me tell you, I wouldn’t wish anyone in this world to feel like me right now. In desperate hope to fulfill my husband’s dream, but not having means to help him.
Can I really help him? PayPal.Me/tijanaognjanovic
