Okay, a friend encouraged me to do this, so I figured I would. I’m a nerdfighter, I love John Green and the vlogbrothers. And while I generally frown upon putting stuff in tags that don’t belong there, I also really hate asking for help, so I guess we’re gonna break two rules with one stone here and muster the Rohirrim, because Nerdfighters is a community full of people who help each other, right?
So, here’s the thing, I’m from a part of the country that was hit hard by the economy and has just now even started to recover, which means I haven’t been able to find a job. But I just got accepted to my dream school at the University of Newcastle… IN AUSTRALIA. Think of this… I’m a small town girl from Tennessee and I’ve just gotten the chance to do something AMAZING with my life, a chance to take my first step towards my dreams! But, wait… I don’t have enough money for the deposit fee and my parents are working their asses off at jobs they hate just to make ends meet and I can’t find a job and my dream is knocking on the door and I need to answer it because this opportunity may not come again. So… this is where my troubles lie.
My cousin found this great site called GoFundMe and we decided that it would be great to start a fundraiser on there to help me with my deposit fee. I’ve seen people of Tumblr come together for other people of Tumblr before, I’ve helped those people, and now I’m one of those people who needs help too.
And before you think, “This is really sketchy, she’s not at all working for her education.” Not true, I totally am. I have a cosigner for my student loans, I’m being given the option of payment plans at my school, and I just recently interviewed for a really great job at a really great place that went really well, so I’m hoping to get the call back from them soon. And my parents and other members of my family have said they’re going to help as much as they can throughout the entirety of my education to help me escape with the minimum amount of debt that I can escape with. I’d like to have a chance at life without having to mortgage out my internal organs, I think that’s an understandable emotion (Feeling? Thought process?).
So, I’m going to tag this with all my fandoms and hope that people read this and are kind about it instead of hateful, even if they don’t agree with it. SO, HERE’S THE LINK TO MY FUNDRAISER and thank you so much for reading all this, I’d be really appreciative if you wouldn’t mind reblogging also.
Again, I really hate asking for help, not because I think help is weak but because I’ve always felt unworthy of it. But… desperate times call for desperate measures.
I really hate to use this account for this, even when I haven’t really used this account at all. But desperate times call for desperate measures and I was hoping that maybe some of my followers on here wouldn’t mind reblogging this? It would mean a lot! Thanks!!
