Yeah, ok, a bit dramatic, but lemme start from the top and maybe you'll see what I mean.
I left the US a year ago after a mental breakdown caused by domestic violence; if you really want to hear more about that, we can cover that later. It's not too great a story.
I left the US and went to Paris, where I first tried to join the French Foreign Legion, then washed dishes, performed magic, and finally became a freelance travel writer, in that order, but not that quickly. My blog, VagabondParis.com, still gets a lot of hits despite my having not updated it in a while. And the thing they say about starving artists? It's true.
And now, I'm trying to get back to the US, where I can hold an honest to God job and live in relative comfort... because the last few months I've been camping out in a forest, and I would love to have a bed and a regular warm shower.
Unfortunately, I can't work in the UK, no work visa! But then a friend showed me Bitcoins, and we looked at the numbers, and I found that a cheap flight costs about 488 USD, which figuring at about 8.50 USD to 1 BTC, is 57 BTC.
60 BTC and I can be back home, where I can work, see my family...
But I'm not a beggar. I won't turn away donations, that's silly and a bit self-destructive, but rather than ask for money, I would prefer that I offered some recompense for said coinage, digital as it may be.
I am skilled with Photoshop, Illustrator, Final Cut, Logic, Dreamweaver, Wordpress, you name it, I know it. I am a professional writer, so if you need something written, proofed, edited, I can do that. I know how to make films, clean cars, arrange flowers, build houses, run a business, no kidding, the only thing I can't do is fly a plane!
So, tell me what you want, what I can do to help you, help me get back home, give me some work so I can earn 60 BTC and get that plane ticket. I'm serious, I'm tired of living by my wits, I miss my sisters, and I want to go home.
Please message me, contact me through my blog (if you think that it's not me, I'll post my wallet on the blog, compare them, or even send me email) let me know what I can do. I won't turn away donations, but if we can help each other out, and I get to go home, everyone ends up happy.
