When I found out that I was going to attend school at American University I was motivated and ready to learn and experience every single thing that I could get my hands on. However I found out that I would be attending American University around a month before school actually started.
Update of sorts:
I don’t know if some of you have noticed, but I’ve been off lately. Here’s what I’ve got going on.
My anxiety attacks have returned.
I’m not sleeping. As in I finally can fall asleep around 3. Wake up at 4 or 5. Fall back asleep at 6. Get up for work at 8.
My hours are getting cut. I went from 27 hours to 19 or 20.
And to top it all off, I now have to pay an additional payment for this tuition mentioned in the link above every two weeks.
Blah blah blah. What does that mean?
I got paid $308.15 on Friday.
Tuition Payment (Every two weeks): $197.33
Cell Phone (Every Month): $148.04
It is Saturday and I’m already in the hole $37.22
This happens almost every time I get paid. If it’s not my cell phone bill, it’s my $50 loan payment that’s coming out.
I’m exhausted. My family is exuasted.
I’ve already gone through the money I was saving for me to move out. All $300 of it. Whether through groceries for the family or buying a part to fix our dryer. I’m slowing going back into debt because I’m forced to use my credit card.
All I wanted to do was learn.
I did learn.
But now I feel like I’m beeing punished for it.
So what I’m asking for is just some help. Share this post around the web.
If you can donate, fantastic. If you can’t that’s alright. Just share the post. Maybe the next person can.
Thanks for those of you who have donated. It really does mean a lot to me.
