Last week started with a bang! Got my laptop busted, literally, i am not sure what happen, but the moment i tried to shut down, i heard a snap and bang! the right-side hinge of my laptop snapped and broke. I had to rush to the nearest service center and they told me it would take a week and cost me 2,000 IND to get it back to its shape, for which i was grateful, as it would have cost me much more if i had choose some other service center. Feeling lucky and a bit anxious at the same time, i went to my department- i am a student by the way- to report about my project, which doesn't seem to have any progress whatsoever. Last week alone i had to shell out all my saving for the month, now the started of this week i am broke to the point that i walked all the way from university to my home, which is about roughly one mile i guess, i usually take bus, but it seems i wont have that luxury. Asked my mom for an early allowance this month, lets see what turns out. In the meantime, i am still trying to composed myself and putting on the best effort i can to get myself above this current situation of mine. What should i do? My problem is: 1) i am broke; 2) i need to figure things out for my project which is due for august end; 3) i really really need to make some cash within one month as next month i need to spend for some very important things. i would really appreciate it, if anyone lets me know any website which would help me raise some money, any idea, i like to write, but it needs concentration and currently i seems to lack just that. No survey, PTCs or any things of this sort please, they are brain damaging to me, i think i would definitely get Alzheimer's if i do any of them, no offense intended for those who are having great time doing it, i simply don't have your superior intellect in mastering the tricks and trade of these jobs. So if you guys come up with any idea or just want to share your last week experience or your hopes for this week, let me know. Take care

i am pretty sure that you cannot get Alzheimer from doing stuff on the net but as a person whose father in law actually has Alzheimer, i am telling you that Alzheimer is NO joke. its a horrible disease.

So sorry about your father in law. I do not think I've yet to meet someone with Alzheimer's and I am somewhat grateful because of how sad the situation can be. It must be really hard. I wish there were more information about the disease and how you get it, I don't believe there is much information out there about it? Well just thought I'd say hello with that, have a good day myLoting!

Sorry about the laptop, that stinks and probably was costly when trying to actually gain more profit than spending it. I have a few sites in my profile if you feel like looking, no big deal if you don't. There's a couple that won't allow you to join since where you are. It won't hurt to look though, best of luck.

Here is something that I found on Womans Day.com Here’s a hint: Legitimate jobs will typically never require you to pay a fee to get more information, and they don’t come in unsolicited junk e-mail messages. Still, there’s plenty of earning potential in working from home. "Companies are learning they can save a lot of money by hiring home-based working moms to do projects such as word processing, writing, computer programming, even tutoring," says Lesley Spencer Pyle, founder of Home-Based Working Moms ( hbwm.com). Most of the jobs listed below require an up-to-date computer, a high-speed Internet connection, a phone with a dedicated land line and a quiet place to work. Imagine reporting to work in your pajamas! Customer service rep Many companies, such as J. Crew, Express Jet, 1-800-flowers, and even the IRS, outsource customer service operations to third-party companies who then hire home-based workers or "agents" to take calls and orders. When you call 1-800-flowers, you may be speaking with Rebecca Dooley, a retired police officer and employee of Alpine Access, a major call center service. When you dialed the number, your call was automatically routed to Rebecca’s spare bedroom in Colorado. Alpine Access currently employs more than 7,500 work-at-home customer service agents who take in-bound calls (there’s no outbound or cold calling) for dozens of companies. "This works perfectly for me because I can set up my hours around my family’s busy lifestyle," says Rebecca, who usually works 20 to 32 hours a week, depending on her schedule. While the typical hourly rate is about $9, Alpine Access agents can earn up to $20 an hour with incentives and bonuses. Rebecca also receives benefits and a matching 401(k) plan. (Some companies consider their staff independent contractors, so they don’t provide benefits.) Go toalpineaccess.com.

I think you would have better luck having a yard sale. It is very hard to earn money online in the amounts your looking for. good luck.

Seems like your life is so full. I envy you in that way, as I wish my life was full of something. Do you enjoy your life more so now? Or do you find it to be a bit of a burden at times?
