Son of a...!

Ah... I just can't seem to get a break. My financial aide is weird again. I won't get any money until Feb 4th, I guess. This leaves me screwed as I don't have money for books. I'll figure something out, but this isn't going as smoothly as I was hoping.

I'm currently waiting on a call back for a work study position, but I'm not holding my breath. Tomorrow, I'm going to talk to my instructors to see if they have any available positions in their departments. pfffffft....

Oh wonderful. The kid in the office tells me I need to show proof that I've done the entrance counseling for the loan. I know I did it, hell, I had to to get the damn loan in the first place! But I never printed it off. So I just got back onto the site and they're telling me the loan has been paid back in full. Tell me how that's ****ing possible when I applied for it a month ago? What the ****... God dammit. I'm screwed without that loan coming through and this run-around job isn't helping matters...

I'm heading there tomorrow to get this straightened out. It just seems like I've been getting told all sorts of different things the last couple days. It's just really frustrating.

My Yelling At People On The Phone skills are meager at best, but I'm done with them for the night. I'll pass 'em on.

Ok. Got it sorted out. Got all but one book. I'm feeling much calmer about things. At least I've gotten over one hurdle.

Good. School is tough sometimes, the last semester I took, I had to get a student loan to help cover expenses. It's interesting that its saying your loan was paid off in full. The financial aid organization sent me a letter last month saying that the remaining balance in my loan had been paid off in full. It was some kind of reward for making payments each month.

Financial aid people......

I remember trying ot plead my case to the college bursar that my loan check was on its way....his reply...."no payment means you cannot attend classes period".

Well I got tthe money and paid in full.

When the college sends me solicitations for money I always make sure to send some....monopoly money.....they were miserable b&#&#*ds to me so they can go burn in hell!

A word of warning: If you find yourself donating swimmers and plasma at the same time, you're going too often.
