I'm going to have a panic attack.

My husband's car completely broke yesterday on the freeway, he almost died. We have to get him a new one by this weekend. His boss will let us take a loan out through her, and that will put us at about 20 dollars a week spending or emergency money.

My ipad, which is my only mode of textbooks and schoolwork just broke.

My final exam is tomorrow.


I don't even know what to do. There is literally nothing we can cut back on. Our lease is up in October, so I'm considering moving out and in to a tiny apartment. That will save $200 per month. But then again, moving is expensive, and then we have to pay all of the deposits. So I don't know if we'll actually be saving anything. I feel so stuck.

Only one more year to go and I'll be making good money. But how am I going to get through this year? I just want to lay down and cry. But I have a lot of studying to do, and I have to go pick up my husband from work since I have the only car right now. Plus, I don't want to freak out the kids.

*puts on strong face and pouts inside*

I do have some deferrals available on my car. That might help me if I absolutely need it. Our savings is all going to get a new car. All of it.

I don't really want to give myself away and be super specific, but it's in the medical field.

Although, if you know me, that probably gives it away. lol

You can't go with just one car right now? While it seems bad, it could be worse. He could have no way to get another car, you could have no car, no means etc. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, focus on that.

Hang in there!! We went through similar times when I was in school. Financially it was so hard. Now that I've graduated and got a job it is SO worth it! 4 years of struggling, but a life time of financial security. Good luck on your final.

haha, no. I do work as much as I possibly can. I get as many hours as I can schedule around school. My husband works 50 hours per week. He told me he's picking up extra hours this week too, so that's good.

Hang in there and even though you have to study, take a moment to yourself.
