This semester was the first time I've been able to speak German with others since my attempt at college ended in the wake of my first confrontation with my own C-PTSD and the loss of grants because of tax errors on the part of my parents, whom I did not live with since my freshman year of high school.
This year has been a hot mess for everyone, but I'm hoping I can manage to not let it ruin my momentum or overshadow my ambition. I moved to Chicago, I got robbed, I still need a few things to survive winter. I need additional medication to help with worsening OCD and harmful ideations. I recently had to cut back to four days a week at work instead of five, to avoid worsening my depression. So money is very, very tight.
My fees for this next semester are $475, including books, which isn't too bad, but still seems nearly impossible in my current financial situation. My teacher thinks that if I remain dedicated, remain in classes, and work with the language every day, I could be fluent in three years. It's something I really, really want for myself.
I am grateful for any help you can extend me. This fundraiser cuts off on January the 4th, so I have a little time to know if I can still commit to the class. Contact me for my paypal, if you prefer.
In the event that anything is made over the goal it will be used for supplies so that I can begin a language journal, so that I can remain sharp over breaks, and fully maintain my understanding of the complex grammar.
