I understand that borrowing this money was not completely necessary, and that I would have been responsible for paying back the (not insignificant) amounts at one point or another. I haven’t spent it all, either. I tell you what, though, without that great big padding, I wouldn’t have made it through this year of classes. One big push. Just do it, and damn the torpedos.
The thing is, I asked them, over and over again, if this was for sure my money to borrow. The representatives assured me that it was. If they would have said six months ago that I wasn’t supposed to get it, I would have been fine with that.
I almost dropped my summer class, but if I owe the University money, I might not be able to re-register when/if/never this gets straightened out.
“Oh, you only meant to go part time all year? Why didn’t you say so?”
“I DID! I DID I DID I DID I DID I DID I DID I DID I DID I DID I DID I DID!”
I’m just livid right now. Just let me figure out a budget more than a week in advance. I knew I knew that I couldn’t afford a vacation, but my ulcer told me that I needed to get away from work and school and maybe just for three days smell some flowers. Look, flowers. Ocean. See? This is why you are slogging through classes that are putting you to sleep: for the chance to get the hell out of Dodge, again.
Whatever, it’s time for bed.
