ps i apologize for being horribly pushy im garbage
Hey! This is a post I’ve really dreaded making, and I feel kind of really awful for doing so. But I’ve basically exhausted all other options, and decided that since it’s gotten a bit of attention, I may as well make a post about it.
Why do you need money?
As someone who’s been pretty much on their own since around sixteen in an attempt to leave an extremely toxic environment, things haven’t been easy in quite a while. Though I’m incredibly lucky to have a place to sleep each night because of friends and a small amount of money each month, that’s all I have. Food money generally runs out come the end of the month, and I’ve given up a of of the basics as far as everything else goes. Surviving is tough, and it’s even tougher when you’re trying to pull yourself up from the bottom.
Why don’t you just get a job?
Believe me, I’m trying. I wouldn’t dare ask otherwise. I’ve been trying for the past couple of years to do so, and now that I’m 18, a few opportunities are actually coming in despite the awful economic situation. The problem is that I live in an extremely small town, one without transportation and one without places to work that are less than 15 miles away. In short, I’m stuck in a cycle that a lot of people are probably familiar with: need a car for work, need work for a car.
What do I get for helping out?
Other than a teary eyed message from me, I don’t have tons to offer. But, there are a few things that I can do if you message me off anon:
- a promo to 3k+ followers as well as a super awesome thank you
- a doodle of whatever you’d like to the best of my ability
- (???) to be added
