Journal Entry: My Crumbling Reality
This is not going to be a happy journal at all so if you're looking for that then steer clear.
I've had a lot of shit going on in my life the last few weeks and haven't talked about it so this is my sort of...coming out and being honest with you guys.
I'm loosing my home.
Close to a year ago I moved away from my home of 4.5 years. It was hard and broke my heart but it was something I had to do. We couldn't stay in our old house and I was hoping to get a job, using my degree, at an aquarium.
We found an amazing farm with an amazing house that I adored. It was out of our price range but we leased with an option and (originally) had the promise of financial help from my grandparents.
Well they did help out but only for about...3 months.
Things got really bad. I almost sold off all my Nordanners, started to get desperate looking for a second job.
The only reason we made it through the winter and beginning of 2015 was because an amazing friend of mine gave me a personal loan of $3,000.
That kept us afloat long enough for me to get my full time job at the animal hospital as well as my promotion at Gamestop. Thus began my insane work schedule where I SOMETIMES have 1 day off a week.
We've been managing well since then but this is where things go to shit.
Last week we received a letter from our land lord stating that unless we bought this property from him by November 11th we would be kicked out.
Granted, this was our original deal. We would live here for a year, see if we could make it work and make an offer. However when we moved in we didn't realize that half the shit they told us was a flat lie. To boot this place is insanely overpriced.
The house next to us is 10 acres with a 6 bedroom, 5 bath house. A second guest house and a pool.
They are asking around 200k for it.
They want 330k for this place.
So...where does that leave us?
We can't find anything in the area that we can afford or that works. Things we CAN afford are like...empty plots of land.
Currently these are our options.
1. Move into a broken down ass trailer with barely 5 acres for the horses that we really can't afford since they want to sell outright and mom doesn't think she can get a loan thanks to her shitty credit.
2. Hope that a man who owns a farm we looked at LAST year will let us board our horses at his place for next to nothing and HOPE we can afford an apartment on top of that for ourselves.
Truthfully we can't afford either.
My mom is getting so desperate she is considering moving to Missouri since they have land selling up there for dirt cheap and we don't have any other options.
I have no idea how we could do that, especially since we are completely on our own with this. My grandparents won't help us anymore, I'm working as much as I can...there just is nothing we can do. At least not that we can see in the immediate future.
We have less than 60 days to get our shit together.
It doesn't help that his house has been like...my dream home and loosing it is a nightmare come to reality.
Needless to say I'm not exactly...inspired to do anything right now.
Hell I WANT to draw but I don't have the time between my two jobs as is.
So yeah....there you have it guys.
Back in the shitter I go.
