I often focus on the silver lining for the lousy crap that happens.
But right now I’m struggling.
I want to say I’ve never gotten ballsy and straight up asked tumblr-at-large for some help.
A year or so ago, my car died. So I’ve been rocking public transit. No problem. Then I quit my job. Then I decided to start a business, so all my savings went to that.
Then I went back to school. I have to pay for summer semester books still, and my damn student loan for this semester still hasn’t arrived.
I started biking to school and other places I need to go. It was perfect! Most of the places I travel to are within a few miles. So I was biking and it saved me a ton of money riding the bus, and unlike public transit I had more autonomy about when I could leave and how quickly I could arrive at my destination.
I got my fucking bike stolen.
I’m depressed, pissed and frustrated. I’m hurt and defeated.
I really need a renewable way that I can get around because since I am starting a new business, I don’t actually always get paid. So I don’t always have bus money. Or even money to help pay our bills or get more groceries than eggs and rice. Our rent is wildly late, internet is cut off, and my phone will probably get shut down soon if my loan doesn’t come next week.
So, what I am humbly and honestly asking for is like, a couple bucks toward getting a new bike, and maybe a few bucks to help with food.
even reblogs and sharing is helpful.
