I didn't think i would do something like this.
I am a 20 years old computer science student from Venezuela.
Since i was little i liked videogames, but with the sad economy of my country the most my parents could afford was a PSP, that was a blessing to me and something i enjoyed until it broke.
Soon as i turned 18 yo, i found a job in a cybercafe, but all the money went away in food (2018 was the year of rice alone and rice with lentils), the cybercafe closed and i found a "job" on the internet doing captchas for very little money, between studying and working hard (1+ year) i managed to get an AMD A8 9600, but since then i haven't been able to buy the rest.
So i am here begging for money to have a cheap "gaming" pc to enjoy life a little and try to get out of this depressing state, besides a better pc is going to help me more in my studies, with the netbook that i have currently even using gnu/linux just with 2 or 3 failed compilations my netbook freezes and i have to restart it.
Maybe i could even buy an xbox 360 and with a little bit of sailing the high seas play games, i do not condone piracy but in a country where a simple 30$ game is an odyssey to buy, i don't think i have another choice.
Maybe this is all a tantrum, maybe i just want to feel like i didn't "lose my youth", even though i'm still young.
If you have money to give me, think twice, there are other people that need it in actual important things rather than my whim, but if you still want to help me, i'll be eternally grateful.
PD: sadly i don't have a $ account, only paypal.
PD2: Maybe if i manage to get enough money, i can gift something to my sister, or buy my parents a cheap smartphone so they can communicate using whatsapp not only with us, but with my other family members (they live in a different state, i live with an aunt, so that i can go to university), and buy some courses, i am specially interested in a trading course.
PD3: If by a blessing of you and god i manage to obtain enough money, i'll immediately close this.
