5 feet tall, short on cash but not heart

As they say you must ask in order to receive.
I need you. I believe what you give out to the universe is what you get back. I have been blessed with many good souls that have come in and out of my life as well as helped many people and this time I am asking for assistance. To be honest is hella difficult for me. Asking for money brings me back to not so fun memories of childhood. I think its a big lesson for me to make an ask. Babysteps to asking you, God, The Universe, any long lost cousins that I haven't seen since I was a baby to help me when I am in need. Now is the time I am in need. I think its easier to ask for a sign of synchronicity or a parking space than for a big time ask that is out of my zone of comfort. My current asks Do you have an money to spare to help me out of a tough spot? Do you have work you think I am qualified for? Do you know any cute single available men that may be right for me? Those are some of the harder things in life for me to ask for. Well maybe not asking for great single available men. I have been asking since 2011. Even the internets have gone cold for a while in that department. I have faith he’s out there and I am in preparation aka staying hygienically desirable. Ya know working from home PT in pjs can make a girl not want to do her hair. Who am I kiding I hate doing my hair. He'll love me bed head and all.
I digress.

I have abundant hopes in securing more income. I have sent and continued to send various resumes, mojo, love, posters, writing, affiliate links all to make sure I am doing everything I can to have something come in.

Without any buffer of savings or credit cards coupled with no immediate cash flow a single girl is asking her community for a hand.

My unemployment ran out in April. My small savings dwindled. I sent resumes to professional positions in graphic production art, project managment and temp agencies and more. I also sent to many a retail establishment such as Whole Foods and got rejected for being overqualified. As if I couldn’t out hipster them. I gather I should have sent my resume from 1993 when I had a plethora of retail customer service experience. I have dog and cat sat and have a facebook page regarding my services www.facebook.com/jenlovesyourpet
if you have a pet sitting need in my area I would love cuddle your furbaby.
I attempted an online venture that didn't take off yet but will build when I am financially more solid here is my fb page for Go Forth Be Awesome https://www.facebook.com/JenniferAnnBingham

and wrote a poetry book on Amazon available here: http://ow.ly/xXcLa

Don't laugh too hard at my attempt I was very romantically angsty until adulthood, aka 35.

A blessing of a part time 1099 gig came in late May. I won't get my first invoice paid until Mid August. Poop. They are legit. Lionbridge LLC. Look them up my friends were all concerned because that seems rather dicey to have to wait to be paid. I am a web evaluator. Fancy for helping evaluate web search results so you don't get unwanted porn or Apple Martin when you want Apple computer. Its PT and I can only make the amount of my rent per month but its a blessing even if its a future one.

My ask is either a loan or monetary gift for an amount you feel I have given you value via our connection or what you are comfortable and capable of giving. If I have helped you in any small or large way or want to mitzvah anonymously. If I made you smile, laugh or helped you through an emotional or physical crisis I could use a blessing. If you have the means to help me at this time I would be honored and humbled by your gift of help.
Its hard to focus on shining my light when there is fear of losing my apartment or my car but I do my best to stay positive and forward focused. I have many dreams for my future one is financial solvency, stability and ultimately freedom. Another is building a community of abundant thinkers and dreamers that live awesome lives. Also to become a better writer who doesn't use so many incorrectly placed commas #sorrynotsorry, To have many rescue fur children and maybe human ones. To have a great marriage partnership with a handsome, intelligent, funny man to make burnt banana pancakes for. And ultimately to love and make as many people laugh and enjoy life as humanly possible.

Here is to my detailed rundown of my ask. I am not asking to fulfil luxuries like dinners out, movie unless you want to take me out on a legit date. Ahem single men.
There are no luxuries besides toilet paper on my list. If you know me you know this is more important than food to me. Not even fancy toilet paper but enough t.p. to last through the next ice age. Its a thing I have. I know how to stretch a dollar and feel abundant. Library card and free movies in the park thats how I roll even when I am rolling in it. Money not poop.

My current expenses for the month of June that have not been paid for are listed below.
Rent $1097 -late fee of $40 and $50 Balance for June $1087
Car payment $272.63 Paid $100 in May so owe For May and June $445.26
Car insurance $120.00
Electric $50
Internet $50 My part time job is an at home internet gig and my job is confidential not allowed to work in public so no free wifi hotspots for me.
Cell phone $92 My only phone.
Car gas $100
Grocery/Food/toilet paper - the essentials $100
$50 buffer if gas/electric go above the stated amounts

Student loan and credit card debt are in my humble opinion not as high a priority until my home is secure so the amount above is only for basic expenses. However, below I listed what is my monthly nut is for those items so you have the whole picture as well.
For informational purposes I am owned by Sallie Mae for the amount of $279 per month. I still owe May and June and well about 109 months into the future.
I have credit card debt that I have been living off of when my savings evaporated and at the max on both. My monthly min payment for those is $65 each.

There you have it. My June 2014 ask. Its big, at least for me. I believe that the Universe provides when we put forward action toward what we need and want.
If you have a job for me lets talk to see if my skills and experience can help you.
If you want to be paid back no problemo just know it won't be until I have a steady income and let me know your details so I can return your $$.
If you can not assist due to any factor be it financial, or philosophical I understand and no hard feelings. If you can spare some good positive vibes I would be grateful.
If you would love to help and can I would be honored and grateful beyond words.

Thank you and many hugs and abundant blessings to you,
