I am swallowing any pride I may have had, and sending up an S.O.S. flare.
Long story short - the joy of my new, up-coming job is being overshadowed by the fact that living on $16,000 a year for the past 4 years has left me with no savings and not-so-great credit (student loans). I am having a tough time finding a place to live without adequate first, last, and security funds. An old car and gas prices make commuting almost two hours each way nearly impossible. I'm running out of time to find a place, and I'm starting to panic.
Anyway, you get the picture.
Needless to say, after a few weeks of work, I will be on my feet. At that point, I will re-donate the total (with your names attached) to the Prison Books Project.
