Hi, my name is Major and I am a recent college grad living in Kalamazoo. Or will be once August 14th rolls around. I am currently looking to start three part-time non-profit jobs this August, a Co Director for a social, economic, and environmental justice organization; A  family intervention specialist that meets with families to help then work on their living situations; and an office manager local cultural and art collaborative. 

But mid-late August is also when my current lease ends. I would be making enough money to cover my rent, even with just one of my jobs, but I won’t start being paid until after my lease ends on the 19th of August. I have found houses that I could rent with my friends, but to secure these places I need to have the deposit money and at least one month’s rent.

 I didn’t have a graduation party or an open house because all of my family lives in different places (and i’ve been busy doing interviews and some odd jobs to pay bills) so maybe this fundraiser can be like one. I know my goal is kinda high but i hope the power of crowd sourcing can make it happen in time. A donation of any amount would be deeply appreciated, but if you can’t donate sharing help’s just as much. Thanks for reading!

hahaha one time i got id’d and the guy behind the till looked at my passport in surprise like, “oh, you’re older than me!” like… yes 1993 was many years ago pls let me buy this cheap wine

Ahh 1993 is the year to be ;) Omg did you know I once found a bottle of wine for £2.50 in a bargain shop back home?? Dangerous times. I once got I.D’d for a free sample of Desperados on the street T_T

So over the summer I’ve been working as a cashier at my brother-in-law’s store. As I was checking a woman out today she accidentally knocked a container of blueberries into the floor. After I got all the blueberries cleaned up the woman offered to pay for them (this was her idea, I wasn’t going to charge her for them because I understood that it was an accident). So I range up the blueberries and told her how much she owed and she asked for a discount???? Because she was “just going to throw them away”. Honey… Do you not understand the concept of “you break it you buy it”? Like if you drop fruit on the ground IT BRUISES. You can’t sell it that way. You dropped a whole pint of blueberries on the ground. So In effect you have “broken” the blueberries. Would any other store let you pay anything less than full price for something if you broke it? NO.
In the end she didn’t pay for the blueberries and I washed them and ate the not smushed ones. But I am still salty about this and will probably be salty for days.
