Noose that is so sad... I know that feel. Hang in there.

Broseph-- that sucks. But maybe it's for the best-- you swill probably have a better relationship with somebody who is on the same page as you in terms of morals/ethics.

Three things:

1) after getting caught up on like 5 pages of this thread I'm certainly a lot less sad/worried about my current troubles (**** keeps breaking on my car, random medical things that I can't seem to find time/money to get checked out, etc). Sometimes you just need things put in perspective.

2) ches, seriously I feel like I need to give you the biggest hug ever. Hell, I wish we lived closer so I could let you come over whenever **** just wasn't going well at home, or whatever. Or in some way give you a place to stay for a while until you could get by on your own. I can't even fathom how it must feel to have read that convo between your parents. You don't deserve that. No one does. Can I just adopt you or some ****? And what went down with that guy, I don't even know what to say other than I'm sorry buddy.

3) ck, I feel really bad for not having kept up and in contact with you of all people the last couple months (for a variety of reasons). I was unaware of the current situation with you and him going into the birthday party last week, and in retrospect that kind of painted some parts of that party in a different light in my mind at least. Sorry for being a shitty friend (well, not shitty but you know what I mean). I've got more to add but I might just pm you or something.

Anyways, now I'm really damn tired and all these feels and sads have gotten me a bit worn out So I just might be going to bed.

Well, it's certainly not your fault. I could call too. I just have been very home-bound lately which was a huge part of the problem, apparently. And which part was put in a different light? The part where Sean was relentlessly flirting with me? Yeah. I was talking to him about the situation, and he decided he was going to show **** that he was, in fact, a ****. And he did so by trying to make out the whole night. Which was funny, and flattering, if not dirty... I think he drove the point home, as **** stayed away for a lot of it, but I don't really remember. Which is bad. lol.

Well, that, and just other interactions I had with ****. Joking around about him getting you
watching shirt to go with the one he was wearing, etc.

That's just gotta be so awkward though. Having a party like that and having your very recent ex there the whole time. Kind of reminds me of when we were first hanging out at Chums and what's his name was always there. The bald skinny dude. Stop ending up in that situation girl!

A close friend of mine may have cancer. She's going under the knife sometime this week. I'm scared and confused and sad.

Alright, time to vent.

Cath got denied the parent plus loan that made up a huge amount of my college expenses, and now I don't know how I'm going to make up a deficit of over 7000 even if I throw everything I've got at it sparemoneywise. Her credit isn't good for even the basic loan they fucking toss on there AUTOMATICALLY, let alone anything more. My best hope is outside loans, best of fucking luck there.

My dad is holding me between a rock and a hard place by saying he doesn't want any future payments of child support to go through the state, and offering more as personal money if I just let it be between us. I trust him, no problem, the issue is explaining that to Cath since she doesn't trust him. She's convinced he just wants to **** me by not being legally bound to it.

I genuinely don't know how I'm going to pay for school, and I barely have the motivation to do well once I'm there. I'm just sticking my head down and trudging forward, and I can't even fucking sleep any more thinking about what on earth I'm going to do with my life.

I've never so much as had to deal with anything bigger than a late fucking MacBeth paper and I'm poised over the edge of everything without a clue in the world what I'm doing.

My stupid phobia of seeing myself is getting worse. Darkened computer screens, windows, the TV when it's off, anything that could possibly show me my own reflection makes me fucking recoil like I'm being slapped in the face, not just mirrors now.

That guy I talked about earlier barely talks to me at all any more. Even when we do, he usually unloads on me about some matter of taste or whatever petty **** that he never bothered me about before.

I've been having constant little miniature panic attacks about other ****.

I'm going to cut down on the extrapolation on these hugeass paragraphs into little bullet points, just so you get the idea without me crywanking all over the place.

Did you guys do the FAFSA and all that to get federal loans? I don't think that relies on credit, it goes more off of income. At least that's what I've been lead to believe.
When you get to school, usually they have some kind of program to help kids who are having a hard time. Sometimes they'll call it 'disability services' but trust me it's not just for the disabled. Make sure you reach out and let them know what's going on, it'll help to have them supporting you from within the school.
Apart from that... my heart goes out to you dear. ): You know I care about you and I really hope things turn around.

I can afford one class this semester. One.

And guess what, it's a remedial math course which means it won't even actually go towards my degree. I have to pass it to take an actual college course to get real credits.

So I am just going to be working a lot and not schooling a lot this semester. Ugh.

Ugh, everyone, I am sorry. I would DEFINITELY check out fafsa. It's based on income, and there are different things you accept or refuse. Also, call your bursar offices, and see if they have any lists of available funding, or scholarships you can apply for. It may not apply this semester, based on how late it is, but it could come in handy in the future.

Ches, I don't know how I feel about the deal your dad has offered. There's a lot of potential for that to go wrong. I mean, I don't know your dad, so I wouldn't presume to judge or make assumptions, but the state is there to guarantee that you get what is coming to you. (just my opinion, I haven't had to deal with a situation like that.)

Outside loans (like, private student loans) are your last resort. Honestly. Like has been said, make sure you do your fafsa, etc etc, and talk to the college you want to go to (their financial aid dept or w/e). Also, consider looking into a cheaper technical college. A lot of times, you can do classes there that will transfer to a larger college. Or just get a 2 year degree there or something. Not everyone needs a 4 year degree to do well, and if you're not sure you have the drive to do it, then don't get in debt over your head to pay for it. That's just one big mistake waiting to happen.

What benefit is it to him to have it not go through the state? Also, doesn't your mom only get it until you turn 18? How long is it until he no longer has to pay anyways? things to consider...

Anyways, best of luck out there man. I'm rootin' for ya.

Yea, the FAFSA is required these days, and mine has been done and in for ages. The loans were determined by that, weirdly enough, but we still got rejected because of a recent bankruptcy they somehow didn't know about.

Also, my dad is just sick of dealing with the DoJ. I can receive the support personally after turning 18 by being enrolled full time in school, but for all intents and purposes there's no reason he couldn't and wouldn't give his own kid the money, I definitely trust him there.

It is a very nice song.

And a very long one.

Give it a shot if you're feeling so down.

Muck and Meyer are dead. They were my grandparents' cats, a pair of tabbies from the same litter. Born together, died together. The cats were like 20 years old but it's still tough for me to think about not being able to see them again, I practically grew up with them.
