Would anyone like to donate $1300 to me?

9 01 2014

A couple months ago, I was in my room, moving some things around on my desk. I was trying to see if I needed to buy a desktop computer to edit a short scene for an assignment for my film production class when I felt a slight tug on my pants as I moved. The next thing I know, I hear something crash to the floor.

My hard drive. The one with the films I’ve been working on for a few years, as well as all the files to them.

The shell came loose and I easily popped it back into place, and it didn’t seem too damaged. Unfortunately, it made whirring sounds when I plugged it in my laptop, and my computer didn’t detect that anything had been connected.

A few days later, I took it to a repair shop where they ran some diagnostics and determined that the actual components in the hard drive were broken. It would cost at least $750 to repair. I went around to a few other shops, but they all said the same thing.

The last place I went to, which is where my hard drive currently is, they were nice enough to explain exactly what was wrong with it and told me it would cost $1300 to repair the hard drive and then to recover the data. The data of all my films.

I have never been the type of person to ask for help. My friends will attest to that. I always try to solve problems my own way because they’re my problems. But there are times when I do need help, and this is one of those cases.

I honestly don’t like asking for money, but I’m still a student (with a part-time job). And although I technically can afford to pay this, it’s a pretty big hit on my bank account.

So if there’s anyone, say an older, white sugar daddy who likes young Asian guys (kidding, by the way) and would like to help out a struggling filmmaker/artist, I would be beyond grateful and appreciative. I could make and send you a very sparkly thank-you card!

Anyway, thanks for reading this far. If you want to help me out, I’m sure we can arrange something on paypal or something. Send me an email: aaron@theaaronchan.com.

Oh, and have a funky day.

Haha. If I had that kind of disposable cash,you would be top of my list. Good luck with that though.
