What is the name of your state? Texas

I recently lost a small claims case, and despite the judge's advice to work something out, the plaintiff refused to take payments and demanded I come up with the total award.
I am currently not making a lot of money working part-time, so I have not been able to come up with it. I could not even borrow it.
Next thing I know, I was left a note saying that there was going to be an Abstract Judgement against me.
What is an AJ and how does it work?
