Hi all, I'm Amy.. A student in England
I turned 30 this year and due to my birthday being in the most depressing month of the year (January), I have held off my celebrations. This is due to wanting to take a trip to New York in mid August, I have always wanted to go its been a dream for many years to visit NYC. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances the money that I was saving for my flight had to be used on something else, which has left me struggling to find the cash to get me there. I am going with some friends so it would be great to be able to celebrate my birthday with them.
I do work while studying full time but as I'm a distance learner I do not qualify for bursaries/grants/scholarships etc so pretty much living off what I earn which really isn't all that much especially when trying to fund a huge trip, pay rent etc.
I'm obsessed with theme parks and I really wanted to go to Six flags great adventure and ride on the tallest coaster in the world Kingda Ka.
This isn't something I would normally do, ask for help but I don't wish to cancel it and I was looking forward to heading into my 30s with a bit of a bang :)
Thank you all!
