l feel absolutely ridiculous making this, but I really don’t have any other options at this point.
I do a lot of my work through my laptop, and old Hp Pavilion DV6. My podcast, design work, Voice Acting, all that jazz, and still only made about 11 dollar an hour. The problem is, the laptop just died. I’m 20, stuck at home with family, and working on my GED as well, and in between all that, my younger siblings decided to go into my room while I was at class and break my only equipment to work with. I don’t know what to do anymore, so I’ve come here. I genuinely feel ashamed to be doing this, but I feel like I’ve hit a low that justifies this (barely).
I hope I don’t seem like too much of an asshole to ask for this, as I grew up working in family charity stuff (a Pay It Forward program my family started in Florida), and I feel as though this is a ridiculous thing to ask.
The fact of the matter is this: I need money to replace my computer, ad that was my only current source of income.
Jeez, this is hard to write. Do I feel as though this is something I deserve? No. I think this is something that should be on this websites back-burner. I believe if you see a request on here that goes towards medical bills, or funeral expenses, then by all meant take care of them first. But, if after they are all taken care of, you have something that you can send my way, or you feel generous enough to help, anything is appreciated and I will be forever grateful. My laptop may not have been the best piece of equipment. Hell, it was outdated, rundown, and modified to hell and back internally to keep it working, but it got the job done. I can hopefully salvage the hard-drive from it and keep my files, but between phone bills, program subscriptions to do my work, and recording equipment expenses, I just don’t have enough saved from working to replace the laptop.
The motherboard is snapped, you can see where it slammed against the floor in the photo. It charges, but refuses to boot past the HP logo. If you took the time to read this, I appreciate it, and I hope you have a wonderful day.
