I"m going to rant because I don't believe in only posting sparkling moments on social media as though life doesn't have down moments (not that I'd post anything too personal...)

So bullet points

-Been sick off and on for the past month
-Didn't finish Space Roulette because of illness
-Fed grant decreased by 33$
-Got a new few on my tuition (its the last term, thanks goodness)
-My computer is damaged so its out of use. 
-Hours decreased at work.

In the grand scheme of things, this is nothing compared to what other people go through. I'm going to graduate in 4 months, even if I have to spend sleepless nights figuring out how. So while everyone is posting happy posts about new years res, you might not be having as positive a start. Know that its not just you and work at it. You'll survive.

I'll survive.

Thanks for your support.

little?

I've been getting that a lot, as though because I'm still in college I haven't dealt with the real world?

When you have to decided between paying one bill or rent, how is it any different? If anything I'll be able to take more hours at work.

Now highschool, those were the simple days.

by 'little' I mean during school, we always moan about how teachers pile homework on us, or that annoying pimple came out just before photo day, LOL~ T w T Nowdays, looking back, those are the absolute silliest problems to worry about, and I'd gladly suffer pimples than all these other grown up stuff. I hate politics! DX

From your response.. Sorry if I caused you misunderstanding though-- I didn't imply that you haven't been in 'the real world' when I mention 'school'? I keep forgetting western people use the term 'school' for college and higher too and not limited to just high school like we do :iconotlplz: Different cultures, sigh.. still getting used to it.

was not offended, just wanted to clear up what i ment. though now a days, so much is changing. its not uncommon to see high school students rushing to work after school. i was spoiled didnt have this problem untill college. even that is my choice where there is many people who dont have much choice.

that was the point of my post, so no big zue. my english is funny too sometimes.

Thanks for sharing the reality of things, Lauren. I've seen everybody posting all these happy-shiny New Year's is sparklyawesome posts and wondering if it really was just me being affected by more bills and depression and new fees. I know that's not reality, but it certainly felt that way. I certainly hope things start looking up. I know you've been sick for a while now, so here's hoping you get better soon! I know there's nothing I can do about the new tuition fees or the comp, but I feel you, and I'll keep you  in my thoughts and here's hoping for some improvements in the situations for both of us and SOON!

I think its because its some sort of 'taboo' to put anything negative in your posts? granted, personal things should be kept person since anything you post travels with you. Still, I find it funny that people still follow the tradition that because the calendar changes a number, all of a sudden things will get better?

I'm feeling much better now, and got right back to working on stuff. They gave an extension for the comic so hoping to finish that by tomorrow, if not Sat.
