Sometimes life sucks

I don't know what it is about this day, why everything is going wrong. Why everything sucks. I got called to the financial aid office, only to be told that I no longer have any work study money. That means I probably can't work for the art department. And I don't know why. Tution was raised a few thousand this year, but my parents' salaries weren't. My dad doesn't even have a salary anymore. And now with him losing his job, and me not having a job, I don't know what I'm going to do. Maybe it's the PMS working its magic, but I started crying today at lunch, out of nowhere. It's stupid for me to get upset, because I know (just as everyone has been telling me) that everything will be fine. But getting this news, especially after having research methods this morning, I just want to stop wasting my family's money on this damn place and leave. It's too expensive (and seemingly pointless), but I've worked too hard to leave now. Dammit.


I am very disappointed. the financial aid office made a mistake and now I am paying the consequences. they didn't send my award letter because they did not have my proof of residency which was untrue. I called the admission office and they told me that the university did have my proof of residency and the financial aid office should be able to see it. But for some reason they don't, they made a stupid mistake and now I am going to received less money. I don't know how I can complain, because this is not my fault. I did what I was supposed to do and now I am very worried about how I am going to pay college because of the financial aid office's negligence.
