I need to help my dad!
Our family needs help. Any help! This is my first post, so I’m sorry if I do something wrong…
You see, my father lost his job about a year ago, and he’s been trying desperatly to find another. We’ve cut out a lot of things we don’t need, and a few things that we do. But I don’t mind that as much as I mind the fear. We’re all afraid of what might happen and I’ve gotten really scared. I know that there are people who are worse off than me, but we’re a family of four and money is going out fast and there’s nothing coming in.
I’ve tried to help out a lot, I’ve decided give up things I love, like theatre. I am good at art, and I’ve tried to become a better artist to sell something and help pay for the bills so my parents can be at ease at least a little bit. I love art so much, but canvases and paints are extremely expensive so I don’t know how it would help.
I’m good at creative writing and things like that. So I then decided to try and publish a book, but when I saw how much it was, I couldn’t. I couldn’t dare ask for so much money to put out some book a KID wrote. I was hoping it would bring in money, but it’s too risky, what if people don’t buy the book?
I finally decided to get a summer job, and I will as soon as I’m old enough. But it’s not like minimum wage would pay for a house…I just hope I can come up with an idea soon!
You see, he’s usually over qualified for the jobs he’s applied to. He’s been in the air force and he’s worked as a lawyer for Pier 1 Imports. He’s really good at what he does, and he does things like when people say “you copied my design” when they didn’t copy it, and he defends them. But he can do any lawyer work. He’s worked really hard and he’s a very smart man.
They used to have retirements set up, but then it all left when the stock market got messed up, and now we’ve gone into our savings, and they’ve even gone into MY savings from since I was little.
I don’t mind if you send in job stuff or suggestions, but I could just use reassurance and maybe some ideas to make money for my parents. We are a very close and loving family but we are scared. I just hope he finds a job soon!
