I'll start off with a huge WAHHHHHH because I don't usually post shit like this. Fuck you, short dick Artie. Now, I recently moved from Philly back to the San Fran area. Been struggling for 2 months but I'd found a temp place to stay. Very pricey at $300 a week. I've been going out on interviews and looking for work since I got here. My dream has always been to make a living with music, teaching, playing, performing. So after 15+ of shit office jobs in PA I decided to stick to my guns here and try to do what I really have a passion for. Which might be stupid since I could've gotten a similar shit job once I got here and at least have made a crappy living. But I'd probably have spent the next 20 years just as broke and miserable anyway. Now this week things start coming together. I get a call from a school I applied at saying I got approved to start next week. Problem is, it's almost 2 hours away in the East Bay (where I'd been planning to live once I got settled). I'll skip a lot of (even more) boring shit and just say that today I found a great room for rent about 1/2 hour from where I'd be working. Problem is I'm about tapped out. Not even enough money left for the deposit/first/last deal. My ex in Philly fucked up my credit rating after we split (I didn't realize she had my social security # and kept applying for credit cards after I moved) and I am just strapped. Probably will be homeless in 2 weeks. It makes me sick that I'm letting a great opportunity go by, something I'd been wanting for the last 20 years, because some bitch made it so I can't even have a credit card to take out some $ or apply for a loan, especially when my credit rating used to be great back in the day. Tomorrow is kind of "D-day" as far as making a decision or just losing the place I'm trying to get into (and possibly the job). Aside from hanging myself does anyone here have any advice when it comes to getting a loan, maybe from a loan shark who'll break my legs or something?
