"I f*cked my money up, now I can't re-up."
Organized by: Timothy Threadcraft
I told myself I'd never do this, but as the saying goes, life comes at you fast. On May 6th, I took a one-way flight to NYC in search of summer jobs and possibly long-term employment. My sister needed a housesitter while she was out of the country, and I needed to make an effort to relocate and jump-start my career. I got turned down for my first choice, but figured I could eventually grind my way out of my slump. Though I held my own for a while, fate had other plans.
In early June, I found a part time job and was hired and fired within a week. Since NY is an at will employment state, my boss never gave me a solid reason as to why I was dismissed. Shortly thereafter, my Bank of America account in Georgia was absorbed by a regional branch, AmerisBank, which has no branches in NYC.
Scraping up enough to buy groceries to last me and my brother was hard enough, but after faucets started leaking and circuits were blown, fees started adding up.
I've had my laptop charger malfunction, part of a nationwide (plus Canada) recall. In addition to the charger being flimsy for the past year or so, the casing around the charger port recently cracked as well.
Despite all the setbacks, I had a great summer and would do it again if I had the chance. Problem is, I'm headed back home soon and can't bring myself to ask family for more money. This is where you come in. I don't even need money for the charger, I'll probably get that replaced when I get home. If I could raise enough money to at least partially pay for plane tickets, I'd be forever indebted to yall. I'd love to discuss compensation ideas (I would say resume/cover letter help, but we've seen how that might work out) Thanks again! Any little bit helps.
