Whats up guys. OK check it, lots of us want 2 commit suicide because we are trying 2 make things better, but it seems like it want get better no matter how hard we try. So here is what I'm trying 2 make better, my college career. I know I said in 1 post that I'm getting back into school, well, things have not been going as planned(just like almost nothing thats good goes as planned) First off, I promise u that I did not get lazy and changed my mind. I still got the job as a bus driver, which is what I have been working 2 save up 4 school. Now here's the problems, 1) Tuition has rose up significantly since the last time I was in school. I mean at University of Arkansas Little Rock(UALR), 1 class(which is normally a 3 hour credit course) costs $500, THATS RIGHT $500. U might say I should try a community college, but I think that would be a hassle since I have 49 credits at UALR. Going to a community college would be like starting over. It doesn't stop at $500, there's also some bullcrap extra fees that costs an additional $100. Think its over with, oh no, the average price 4 a class book can be $100 or more. So, we're looking at $700 total. I tryed 2 deal with this problem but............. 2) I waited 4 late registration. Not because because I procrasinated, but so I could continue saving money 4 the class. But guess what the academic adviser told me, THERE IS AN EXTRA $100 FEE 4 LATE REGISTRATION. I did not know this seeing as how I never registered late before. I just thought that late registration was 4 giving people more time 2 think about what classes 2 choose, boy was I wrong. So now we're at $800. Oh the problems don't stop there my friends. You see........... 3) The school wants me 2 pay %25 of the $700 by TOMORROW. The other $100 isn't included because thats the price of the book, but hell, that doesn't make it any better. So basically they want me to pay $175 tomorrow. Wish I could say the problems were over but.......... 4) If I don't pay by tomorrow, THERE WILL BE AN ADDITIONAL $100 TO PAY. That brings the total price of one class to $900. Why There Is No Solution After taxes, I make $300 every week. I've used my savings from the past few months to take care of some other things, so I'm kinda starting back from ground zero. Which means that I can't make the %25 payment by tomorrow because even though thats about half my check, once u add that 2 everything else I have 2 pay 4, I'll be broke 4 a whole week. I can't be broke 4 a week, because I have no one 2 depend on. And trust me, going broke 4 a whole week isn't easy. Maybe There's a Positive Side Who knows, I may have just received a divine sign through all of this madness. Seeing as how the college industry is trying 2 rip me off so bad, maybe God is trying 2 tell me to be satisfied with my decent paying job as a bus driver rather than going on a wild goose chase trying 2 get rich through a college degree. I mean think about it, think about how much money total I will have blown if I try 2 finish my degree by paying 4 the rest of the 60 or more credits I need. College is some bullsh!t. I'm not trying 2 discourage anyone else from going but d^mn. I'm considering just giving up on it unless I win the lottery. Do u guys agree with my decision or not, let me know how u feel?
