Share your favorite phone apps

If you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for new apps. Every so often I declutter and get rid of apps I haven’t  used in a while or see no reason to use any longer.

Since I’m all about the spring cleaning lately, these are the apps I’ve decided to keep:

So these are the obvious keeps. Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter are the top favs. Facebook Messenger just comes with the territory. I don’t really use Viber or WhatsApp anymore, mainly because I’ve grown distant both physically and metaphorically from the friends that I used to speak to on there.

Ok so Pinterest is my favorite. It’s been my obsession on and off for a while now, and right now the obsession is on. I have Skype on there in the event I need to make an international phone call to a land line, as opposed to a cell phone. Pandora keeps me relaxed. The Period Tracker helps me make sense of my life. Photoblender has come in handy a few time. I keep trying to use the Carb Tracker, but I have little sense of willpower. Shopkick let’s me earn a few. I live vicariously through Bitmoji and Bitstrips. I only downloaded Snapchat for the daily motivation from DJ Khaled. I like having the Islamic Calendar so I can easily look up holidays. Translate app is great when I can’t think of words in Arabic and I can get to it quick. Anyone who knows me, knows I have the craziest dreams. Really, they’re legendary, hence the dream interpretation app. Shazam is helpful when I’m out or watching something and I can’t identify the song I want to listen to more. Shopping lists keeps me on track when getting groceries and I am awful with numbers so that whole app for converting any and all measurements is perfect. Words Up: I HAVE BEEN STUCK ON THE SAME LEVEL FOR 3 YEARS!

So this is mostly the page with all the apps I can’t erase. But I like to listen to the Z Morning Zoo on Z100. I’ve been listening to that morning show since I was 13. It’s so much easier to listen to with the app. Field Agent and Surveys are two apps I use to earn a few pennies here and there. Snap gives me a little help when it comes to saving money. And of course I have my Layout app to make Instagram collages.

 

How about that…

An entirely flawed system

So I just found out that NJ is cutting off my food stamps because I’m considered able-bodied. Food stamps has literally been the only thing feeding my family right now and the only way for me to continue getting food stamps is if I go to a 20 hour a week work program. I tried to go to the program and had to make an appointment for orientation months ago and they were so mean and dismissive of me. They wanted me to miss my doctor appointment to go to their orientation and I told them I couldn’t miss it. I was sick, I needed to see a doctor. So they wouldn’t schedule me for another day and that was that.

I can get out of the requirement if I’m caring for someone in my family, which I am, my mother who has been unwell. But why is she unwell, because without warning her health insurance was terminated because she was deemed to make too much money. My mom makes $800 a month from alimony payments. That’s it! How is that too much money? Because she doesn’t have health insurance, she can’t afford her meds and hence has not been the greatest lately. The only way to prove that I’m caring for my mother is if she gets evaluated by a doctor and deemed disabled. Again, something we cannot afford. And if she never had her insurance terminated to begin with, she’d have her meds and she wouldn’t need someone to look after her.  It’s a flawed system and I’m so embarrassed and sad and scared. I don’t know how to feed my family.

I’ve been trying to get a job for a year and a half now with no luck. I have a BA and two MAs. I’m clearly educated and should be capable of getting a job but no one wants to give me a chance despite my 10 years of experience. I really don’t know what to do. I really hate to ask, but I need help. I haven’t paid my credit cards off, we’re charging everything on credit and I’ve reached my credit limit. We’re not using the heat even though it’s so cold, bc we can’t afford to make the payment. I don’t have a cell phone line because we can’t afford it. How is my family going to eat? What am I supposed to do? Like we can’t even afford to pay rent this month. Literally, I have no idea what to do or how to keep us from being hungry and homeless. And I could kick myself for ending up in this situation.

I keep trying to crawl us out of this hole, but I keep failing.

This is so embarrassing, but I need help and I don’t know where to turn. I’m so embarrassed to ask and hate myself for getting to this point. If you could spare anything, even just $1, I would appreciate it so much. https://www.paypal.me/hebavsreason I swear, I’ll never forget your generosity and 100% promise to pay it forward. I’m just so scared and so unsure of how to make ends meet. I’m so embarrassed and I’m so sorry for asking. Maybe you could pass this around, reblog it. Any help would be so important and I’d be so thankful.
