I’m totally about to write out of anger, and yáll are just going to have to deal with it.
College just sucks. Some courses are entertaining and I’m glad I took them (my education classes) and others are ridiculously annoying. But when it’s all said and done, if you want that fancy piece of paper you must have it all done and last but definitely not least, paid for. And this is what brings me to such pure insane anger. I’m about to sound like a total ass, and sorry ’bout ya’ if you get offended. I see scholarships EVERYWHERE for all kinds of ridiculous things, yet after many many hours of sitting on a computer I have yet to find one for PH or a young college student with a lung disease in general. I’m not saying pity me, but if we are offering a scholarship to someone who’s left-handed, I call BS. Maybe I’m not looking in the right places (and direct me if you know where to look) but I’m just getting hacked yáll. I have a 4.0 GPA as well and I’m working full-time! It’s definitely been hard to meet college payments on my own cause lets face it, shit happens…for instance, a speeding ticket. 🙂 I want my degree so awfully bad and this semester was the first time I’ve ever taken out a loan cause I just cant do it anymore. I see so many students doing the same thing. I know it’s a never ended debate and discussion, but seriously I think something should be done about it.
Not only is it hard for a “normal” person to complete college, but when your body doesn’t quite keep up like everyone elses, it can definitely seem impossible. (See my post “Slow and Steady Wins the Race”). I think financial stress can also just cause a crazy chain reaction with what goes on in your body. I don’t want to be pitied, at all. I’m just sayin’, if Suzy Snowflake gets granted a scholarship for having green eyes, I’m kinda going to want to lunge across the table and strangle her. If you are having issues like this too, I feel for you, BIG time. I work hard to keep up as well as keeping my grades up, so every once in a while it would be nice to see my total come to zero.
