Bane of My Existence

Hi my name is Nicolle and for as long as I’ve owned this van it’s been repair after repair after repair. I use this every day to get to work, and also as the primary vehicle for my band Hit Like a Girl. We tour very often and live in this van several months out of the year. I cannot chase my dreams without it :(

When I’m not playing shows or at band practice, I work every day as a restaurant server and barely make enough money to live let alone eat, and the constant maintenance I have to do to keep the van/band afloat is killing me financially. 

I just spent $600 a few weeks ago before our 2.5 week January tour on rear brakes and a serpentine belt and now the brake lines are shot and I’m bringing it to the mechanic again. I’ve never been this financially distressed in my life and never ask for help from others as ive always been able to “figure it out.” Please help me :(
