My name is Chris. I am enrolled full time in a community college but have to pay for everythign out of my own pocket. I work full time, and have been full time for the last three years. I am nineteen years old and in my second year of college. I started wanting to learn how to program video games, but quickly learned that that was not the way for me. I am now studying business, and personal financeing, along with some mathematics to go with it ( I love math). Just recently i have run into a problem. I am $150 in debt to my roommates (They paid last months rent and deposit for me [Edit: i am now $350 in debt to roommates all because of rent]) I owe a different friend about $60 for books. A nice asian lady in one of my classes gave me an interest free $200 loan to purchase half my books. I had a little bit in savings before I went back to college, but I was unprepared for the actual cost of living. I currently work at a pizza place, but getting paid byweekly puts a dent on when i can have my money. My roommates are needing the money they loaned me, i cant do anything but minimize my spending to save up everything to pay people back. I work one block from my house... so I walk. I live 2 blocks from the college... so I jog. In the last 3 weeks my gas tank has been on empty (but who's hasnt?) I cant afford to work farther away from my house because i cant get there. My current pay is $7.50 / hr. I just started working doubles on the days I dont have classes. I work, do homework, and play games to keep my mind off the fact the only thing in my kitchen is quite literally ramen, and cups from work. I am the vice president for a game club in my college as well. I spend any free time working with the members of my club to help schedule events for our community.
All in all, I need just a little bit of cash to get back on my feet. In fact I dont even need cash, i just need my current debts to be paid off, or a grant, or someway to ease my mind on how to pay for next semesters college.
