So I recently got a Samsung A70 as a upgrade for my phone plan this July, and the phone is great. I love how much i can customize my screen to my liking, from pop-up apps, to spliting the screen through two apps.
Lately, I feel like I’ve been struck with a bunch of misfortune. Summer in Montreal, Canada here was extremely hot, I developed a heat rash on my first few weeks of my summer job. I got a cold, as well as a swollen bug bite, which lead me to have to take time off work to see doctors and rest at home. The bug bite especially made my right leg hard to walk, and I had to go to a clinic for antibiotics twice, one for the bite, one because there was some aftermath of its departure. Fast forward a month, I fall down some stairs at college, huge sprained ankle, slept in a emergency room freezing for 8 hours to tell me there’s nothing broken, and then later on, a check-up revealed I had something broken. All this put a burden on my family dealing with my injury, time-wise and a bit of money-wise. I also accidentally flooded the main floor bathroom, causing even more time for my family to waste dealing with me.
Now after one of my checkups, at lunch, my large a70 phone dropped straight out of my pocket into a restaurant toilet. I immediately take it out, and hurry to put it in the rice at home, but there was a 30 minute traffic.
The day of this posting, in the morning i went to get my phone checked. It was working but not completely. After school, I get a email showing my costs. It was much more expensive then just buying a new phone, and due to Samsung rules for operating a official repair center, they could not repair a phone half way. Meaning I have to pay for all or nothing.
I know this is a selfish request, and some parts really are my fault, but I would really appreciate if you could give me some money to ease my anxiety over all these events, and not putting more financial burden on myself or my parents.
Finding a job here isn’t easy, Quebec values the French language a lot, so almost all non-professional jobs require French, and I’m not very good at it. But I don’t have this sort of student debt yet or, as school in Montreal is pretty cheap until maybe university, which concerns me if i can afford. I don’t have any rent to pay even.
Really you don’t need to give me money, but if you care or want to give me a hug to this stressed out 19 year old guy, consider donating a bit to me. If I had to have a goal, it’d be a small 500 CAD, or 300 USD, which is just a bit over the price of ordering a new phone. I’ll try to return the favor if I ever am not struggling with a job… Somehow
Thank you for reading.
