Life isn't fair

Postby Mgn » Wed Apr 26, 2017 5:55 pm

In January 2016 I moved to a new town for a job. By summer the job was no longer working out financially, but I felt confident that I would find another job. In August and idiot came out of no where and totaled my car. I have found some gigs online but nothing that I can survive on. There are SO many jobs in this town, but they are all 3 hours away by bus. If spending 6 hours a day on the bus isn't bad enough, it reaches 115 degrees during the summer here. Not only would I be stinky and tired by time I make it to work but I tend to pass out when I get too hot. It's not fun passing out alone in public!

It's really unfortunate that I moved to suburbia just before I lost the car. I never even would have moved to this town without a car. If I were in the city getting to these jobs would be easy breezy. I really don't know what I am going to do with 4 months left on this lease. I wanted to live in a nice neighborhood, and since I had a car driving to the city would be no problem. This just sucks! Not sure what to do anymore.

Writing this makes me feel a little better but the problem is still there. I feel like I have to go to a homeless shelter if I'm going to get ahead at this point. At least it would be close to those jobs downtown, and it's free. It doesn't sound nice but I'm pretty stuck.

Can you possibly get a scooter? They have better gas mileage than a car, and you can get one that will go as fast as a car too.

I don't have ANY money. I was just hired at a job out of town. luckily a friend is letting me borrow money to get a ticket there. Hopefully this is the start of something good. If things are looking good when my lease is up then I will move.

You could try posting on craigslist, it's worth a shot, some people can actually be generous on there. Hope things work out for you
