No, this isn't a legitimate update on my life in Ann Arbor. Suffice to say that school is kicking my ass, I don't get enough days at work and at the moment my throat is too swollen to swallow. What this post is about, is something that is very difficult for me to talk about.
I'm having a hard time with money. I can barely make rent (still working on where this month's is coming from), and that means that there has been no way to save up to get me a flight home for Christmas. A lot of negative stuff has been happening in my family's lives lately, and all I really want to do is go home so I can be with them. The problem is that I can't get there, and no one in the family has enough money to lend me themselves.
So what this post is, is a plea to all my friends, family and followers out there. You'll see a little button on the side of my blog that says "Send Kimmy home for Christmas!" and has a "DONATE" icon underneath it. Clicking this sends you to PayPal, a completely secure website, where you can indeed donate whatever amount to my fund. This is in no way a requirement to read my blog, or is it mandatory because I know you. It's just a question, a request.
I would love more than anything to get home for Christmas. This is the longest I've ever been from home, and I grow increasingly homesick every week.
Please don't feel obligated. I have a very hard time asking for charity, but I know when I need help.
God always, ALWAYS provides, but sometimes you have to ask for help first.
Thanks so much if you give, or even if you took the time to read this. I really appreciate every bit of support (financially, emotionally, and in between) that you guys give me. I couldn't have even moved here without you.
I will do my best to update this more often. My other blog (americanhaunts.blogspot.com) takes up a lot of time, as well as school and work, but I really need to be writing down my experiences here more. I'll do my best.
Thanks, again, and I hope to see you all at Christmas!
