Help Me Get to the Classroom!

I am raising money to finish working on my Master's Degree.  I have had some unexpected hits to my financial situation, and money I counted on to make it through has vanished.  I am scared. Except for an odd job here or there I have no income coming in until August.

I am due to begin teaching fall of 2018. Yes, they hired me to teach before this girl even graduates.   This is what I have worked so hard for, for the past 12 years.  I have dedicated my every waking moment to gaining my degrees.  I have two now under my belt and will obtain my Masters next May, God willing.

They say the devil rears his head when you are close to accomplishing your goal and that may be the case here.  I refuse to allow him that satisfaction.  I have been looking for additional work so that when I begin teaching in the fall I will also have a second job.  I got that job and will now be working two jobs and taking a full load.   I had a commercial airing, but that has ceased.  I continue to go on auditions but it takes gas to put in the car to continue to do that.

  I don't begin working until August.  I will be fine then.  I have taken on odd jobs during the summer, but that is not enough to pay my bills. I am very close to losing my home. I have asked a friend to take my dogs if necessary. That is how desperate the situation is. You cannot believe how people disappear when you are working towards a goal. They act as if they don't know you anymore. I have kept on going  despite that .  If anything this has been an education of many kinds.  I have seen the kindest and the cruelest during my journey.
I am currently looking for work and if anyone has a job they would like to offer an honest, hardworking woman I would love it.  If you can donate to this cause that would be a blessing as well.  Thank you for your continued love and support. I don't know if any of you ever had a dream that you worked your fingers to the bone to achieve. If you have then you understand how much this means to me.  When I graduate I will turn 62 years young and the graduation is my birthday weekend. I intend to graduate with HONORS.  It is NEVER too late.   God bless u all!
