I’m 26 and for a few years now I have gone without a car. I have worked in my hometown for some time, and have used other peoples cars or cabs to get to work. Recently I have had to help my mother and don’t have the funds to buy a car do to the circumstances. With my own vehicle I could get a better paying job a little further out and begin making my life better. I plan on going to college and challenging myself to push my own limits. I understand the value of hard work, but as things are I am in a hole that I can see no light from.
Life is no picnic for most, and I don’t plan on giving up but a break would really be a saving grace. I would like to purchase something light on fuel and easy to work on myself. Luckily where I’m from the used cars by private sellers run about 1000 dollars for a running car. A small portion of this could help me move my life in a direction away from where I see it headed. I have a clean record and a drive to do good for others.
I have been a soldier in the National Guard, and a restaurant cook, a painter and a few other occupations. My expectations for life are low but recently I have started to think this isn’t the case, if I’m willing to help others then there are others willing to help me. This is where I stand now. I have no family to ask, so I’m turning to the kindness of strangers, and hopefully someday I can return the favor.
Asking for help is truly a debuff of mine. I tend to give what I get away before I know I’ll be fine, but with some faith and luck I’m still around and would like to stay around for the people I love. A good man once told me I should let go of things I can’t control, and today I would like to let go of my pride and ask for help. Either way my life has to change and I hope I can change it with you.
My dream is to produce music for media, commercials and most entertainment. Eventually I hope to also teach music. This dream would be a step closer with your help. Thank you.
