The best of us can find happiness in misery...

Not much to say. School's the same as always. I got into a fight with my roommate 2 days ago and she just got over being mad at me. I basically told her that I wouldn't be able to finish school on time and I'd have to go an extra semester and I wouldn't be able to afford it. My parents are making me pay for college now, even though they promised that they would pay for the first four years. She just came back at me by saying,
"Well, you can get a loan." Then I said something like, "You don't know how expensive it is to go here. I'm already in debt." Then she said, "You aren't the only one with money problems." And she didn't start talking to me until dinner today. She really doesn't realize how much it costs to go here, she gets free tuition and her parents pay for her housing and books, and she has a lot of money in the bank from her inheritance. So, yeah. My parents informed me over the summer that they're cutting me off, and the minute I graduate college, I don't have a place to stay any more, so I have to find an apartment or something. So much for my plans of saving up while I'm in college for a house or a new car. I get to pay for $25,000 worth of useless knowledge per year.

But, yeah, that was the drama for the week. I really hate drama. I get to go home this weekend, so that's something to look forward to. My parents want me to go apple picking with them on Saturday, and I get to go with Ashley to see Nights In Rodanthe on Friday. Then, on Saturday night, I get to chill with Dan. It's going to be good times. It's that prospect that's going to get me through this week. Now, I get to wait for Sarah to give me back my flash drive so I can actually get some of my novel done. Yeah, forget it, I'm not going to be able to write tonight. Son of a bitch...

wow thats pretty messed up, that your parents are cutting you off after saying they'd pay for college, at least 4 years of it. So how many semesters do you have left?

Similar thing happened to me..my dad promised he'd pay for college, about 27k a year and after a blow up we had, completely stopped paying for college the after my first semester. Over the next few years I was working 2 sometimes 3 jobs to pay for school/books and rent. Hope you figure something out:/

I just started my junior year, so counting this one, 4 semeesters left. I kind of figured that they would do this, they didn't even think I could get into college in the first place, let alone stay for the full 4 years. It just sucks.

I FELT IT IN MY BONES. I knew you and Ashley would see Nights in Rodanthe!

I would say college is a waste, but that piece of paper you get for years of busting your ass is important in the grand scheme of things. It'd be nice if it were free, though. I found out that the CUNY schools used to be free to anyone who graduated from a New York City public high school. Then "they," whoever "they" are, decided money > education for everyone.

Lol, I would have been surprised if you hadn't known that.

College is a fucking waste. A lot of what I'm learning, I already knew. really the only thing new I'm doing is reading books I've never heard of.
