Have you considered getting a regular loan for this project instead of just letting the credit card company rip you off?
I never understood these things. Simply doing nothing and not paying off the credit card is the worst possible way to have any kind of loan.

you better than any girlfriend, because it screams louder, it's easier to pick up, and it shuts up when you take your plug out." -Rip Glitter
I don't recommend the gigalo business. I am still in debt trying to repay all the dissatisfied customers.
KILLING THREADS SINCE 2007
When I was 20, I bought a used carpet steam cleaning machine for $500. Best investment I ever made, because I still own it. With that $500, I probably made around 100K, and I also didn't have to worry about working out, because it's good exercise.
Once people know you clean carpets, rugs, home and auto upholstery, and you're cheaper than all the carpet cleaning scam companies out there, you WILL get work. Every 30 minute job, you'll get $50 +. And people with pets will be loyal customers.
It's better if you have a small pickup, but if you can haul a steam machine, you'll make money easily.
If you play guitar chest-high, you play from your heart.
If you play guitar waist-high, you play from your guts.
If you play guitar low, you play from your huevos.
I did pretty much the same thing when I was 19. I bought a used pressure washer from an uncle for $200. It made me enough money to buy a paint sprayer, so I could paint houses after I washed them.
It doesn't take long to hit the money. In three months you could be making $1200-$1500 a week, If you don't pay any help.
But think about it: the credit line with your credit card has been approved. In theory if you have managed to get a CC with $3000 credit line you should be able to get a real loan for $3000, too.
Just in case it's not known to you, don't take one of those cash advances from your credit card company.
(watch me save a life right here....)
28, and a kid, and she want s you to go with her? Here is how this turns out;
You think she'll let you hit it.
She KNOWS you want to hit it, and has let you subtly believe so.*
You bust hump to get trip money.
You, her, and kid go on trip.
You end up watching kid while she goes and bangs strangers, and then hangs out with you the next day. Then at night, she goes out again.
*Did you catch the Jedi Mind-F*&^$ right there?
Bust your hump, make 3k, and spend 300 on it bedding 18-20 yaer olds at home.
I will paypay you $30 if you find that guy in the chicken suit and upload a video of yourself kicking him in the balls.
Every love that made me lose my reasoning. Every chord that made my conscience ache. Every day spent counting hours. Well, none of them comes close to singing back a song inside my head.
I remember calloused hands and paint-stained jeans, and I remember safe-as-houses self-belief.
