Um, hey Tumblr.
I’ve never asked for this kind of help before, but I’m at kind of a loss right now.
So I was accepted to graduate school in Nevada, and I’m planning on moving at the end of this month. However, I have no idea how I’m going to afford this move, and to make it extra swell, by current landlords are evicting me if I can’t pay my rent in full by Tuesday. (I mean sure, I was planning to be out by the 30th anyway, but apparently they can’t wait.)
I work two jobs, but neither one pays particularly well, and after a small check on Monday, I won’t get paid again for another couple weeks. In the meantime, I need to pay off my rent so I don’t get kicked out (I seriously have no idea what I would do with my stuff, or where I would stay for the next two weeks), and put a deposit down on my new apartment. I should be able to get help for the expense of the moving truck, but everything else is on me.
I also suffer from an eating disorder, and although I don’t have health insurance, my school doctor has helped me put together a (fairly basic) meal plan. I’ve been trying to stick to it, because, well, if I don’t I pass out, and I’d prefer not to lose my only sources of income by fainting on the job. The problem is that, since the meal plan includes meat, fresh fruit and veggies, etc, it’s expensive.
If I can make it to Nevada, I’ll have health insurance for the first time in over seven years. I’ll be contractually employed as a TA, and I’ll be able to get medical help for my ED. Not to be dramatic, but virtually everything hinges on this move. But the expenses are piling up, and I can’t foresee a way to make it happen without some help.
So what I need is this: Enough to pay off the rest of my rent, and something to put toward my move, so that I can continue to eat according to my meal plan and not stay stuck in South Dakota for the rest of my life. Just five dollars, or a reblog, would help me more than I can say. My paypal is here, and I’ve also added a donate button to my page (top left corner). I can’t offer much in return except my love, and free editing, proof-reading, or business-writing services to anyone who needs them. (Also, I can give you access to every kitten gif I’ve collected throughout the past few months.)
I feel weird and presumptuous, asking people who have never met me in person to help out, but I’ve seen a lot of kindness on tumblr, and just a signal boost would be so appreciated.
Thank you everyone!
