Hey. So I'm here to update you guys on what's been happening so far.
I applied for college online nearby. I got my schedule at the financial office about 2 weeks later. 16 credits is what i'm looking at for summer and fall.
Took me 3-4 looks to realize that I had to pay over $800 in less than 2 weeks. The complete payment is due June 5th. Thing is, I had just signed up a few weeks prior and I can't believe they want the money so quickly. I didn't sign up for financial aid cause I didn't think I'd need it cause my mom said she'd help me out. Well, since she has to pay my attorney $500 she can't help this time. So I called my dad and he said to go ahead and apply for financial aid. Don't feel pressured by anybody and feel like you have to drop out.
So I went online and half applied (I have to get my copies of my tax info from my lawyer cause they grabbed the original copies, dammit!) And since they won't be open on Monday since it'll be Memorial's Day I have to wait til Tuesday so I have to go down there first thing in the morning grab them come home and finish the app. I heard getting it to go thru online is quicker anyway. Its just stressing me because I really want to go to college and its something I'm really looking forward to.
I'm going to try my damnest to get everything in by the due date. If I have to pay a late fee then so be it but I'm going to try and get it in. And yeah I should have applied for financial aid earlier I wouldn't have the worries, but you have to realize I didn't apply til April and then I had to wait til easter break was up to receive my acceptance letter and that took 3 weeks. After that, called mom and told her about it and she told me that she'd help out. Well afterwards, found out that my lawyer wants $500 so she can't help me this semester. So that's why I'm applying for financial aid so late.
So wish me luck guys. I'm going to try and get this financial aid in so I can start on school.
On another note, I started another job. Its a job but its boring. I basically call random people on this auto dialer and ask them different surveys.
I've done pretty good lately though the day before yesterday I nearly got fired cause I had to go to orientation and take the placement test to go to college at 6 a.m.
I was running on 12 hours without sleep and eating and I was hungry, pissed and frustrated. So I took off my headphones and made sure the thing was on mute so no one could hear me on the other line and asked to be taken off the survey. Except I said dammit in front of it all. I almost got canned. So I got brought into the office and was told I was really close to getting fired cause it was prohibited to curse on the sales floor. I apologized and told them about why I did it and luckily I got to keep my job but they made me go home. Which I'm glad. I went home and slept so good the next day I came on and did well on the surveys.
As for the boyfriend, him and I are at it off and on. Last night I asked if he wanted to spend some time with me today and he said yes. So today comes and he's avoiding the fact that he told me that he wanted to spend time with me. Keep in mind its 5 p.m. and in less than 3 hours its going to be dark. His answer was he thought we had plenty of time to spend time together. So I told him to forget about it we could try again next saturday. (Yeah, the only time we see each other is at work, that's it.) I called my dad and told him if this shit happens on my birthday which is in 2 weeks (June 6) and he pulls that shit, we're DONE. I'm tired of it. I'm tired of asking cause I shouldn't have to. I shouldn't have to call him. I shouldn't have to damn near scream at him because of this and that. I can find somebody else. I got plenty of dudes lined up that want to date me and that want to take me out and do whatever and have fun. Anyway, I'm going to get off here. Take care everyone. I'll try to write more sooner.
