What do you do when your mom comes to you and admits she doesn’t have the money she needs to pay the rent and utilities?
I guess you start an Indiegogo campaign. I don’t expect this to work, but we are seriously out of options. I tried raising money by doing faceups last year. But everyone was just asking if I would still be doing work for cheap after the time when we needed the money. So, this time I’m not going to bother with that.
Seriously, I’m so mad. I work full-time. To save money, I do pretty much nothing. I take a bag lunch every day to work with stuff bought at the 99 cents store. I paid my share of the bills the whole summer. I even managed to have a little bit of money in my savings account because my car needs some work. Now I guess I won’t get my car fixed, but the money I have saved is not enough to offset what we need to make up for the money my mom doesn’t have.
I busted my ass to save that money. And I would have had more- if she had been honest with herself about her finances. I just finished paying off a layaway I wouldn’t have even started if she had told me she was going to need money. I don’t think she lied to me, I just don’t think she realized she was going to end up that short. Now she’s trying to rely on stalling the landlord in the eviction process until she can…. I don’t even know what. The whole situation just makes me so goddamned angry. I did what I was supposed to but I’m still being punished.
My youngest brother just went to Marine Corps boot camp, and he ended up needing more and more gas money and this and that for poolee events, all starting way earlier than public transportation begins here. These are mandatory events he couldn’t skip. The recruiters are supposed to come get the recruits for them, but they didn’t. And it really hurt us financially.
Anyways, if you guys can signal boost, I’d really appreciate it.
