Preparing for college #2

Ok, I'm just going to separate these into topics, you guys can read what you want.

 

College

 

I spent today getting more stuff around for college, all I have left to do is call the companies listed by my apartment for utilities, and update my resume and apply for jobs near my college. This Saturday I will be going to buy supplies for college. In all the excitement, I almost forgot about the crucial part of college; the loan, and the following debt. I have now calculated that I will be approximately $6-9,000 more in debt than I figured when I decided to switch (which was already $10,000 more than I was expecting when I started college).

 

I am upset with the colleges (my previous, and my new college), as I feel they misinformed me. When I started college (3 years ago), both colleges told me classes would transfer seamlessly. Yet, maybe only 1/2 my classes transferred. I was also told I would automatically receive a $2,000 transfer scholarship for the first year, and possibly the second, depending on my grades. But now they tell me I don't get the scholarship, as I don't meet the requirements, which they failed to mention, when I asked them about the requirements.

 

Regardless, I am trying to keep my head up, and look at the positives. For one thing, I will be in a more positive environment for me, hopefully (in otherwords, away from family, and my current job). Not to mention, I will be learning the skills I need for a job I will like.

 

Oh, and groceries. I'm trying to stay under a budget, and trying to find recipes that will fit my budget :P Had to scrap some of my ideas, because I don't have access to a grill.

 

 

How I've been feeling lately

 

As some of you might remember, in the past I was really getting depressed. I haven't been as depressed, or as often. I have been finding myself more positive lately, but I do have some nights where I get depressed out of nowhere. A couple nights ago, I got depressed, because I have been considering many of my coworkers as my best friends, but I noticed that most of them seem closer than they are with me (they go hang out, but don't invite me, they text each other daily, but rarely text me, 3 of them won't give me their numbers). Normally, this wouldn't bother me, but I think I am associating it with my past friendship with my childhood friends, who all pretty much forgot about me, not to mention talked about me behind my back.

 

I still don't think positive about my looks; my main concern, which I think I already mentioned in an earlier blog or other post, is the outbreak of acne on my face. It looks like I have a bunch of acne on my cheeks , except before they are filled with white pus. I notice that not only do they never get that far to become whiteheads, but they also don't go away, even with a change in diet, or non prescription treatment, like the Clean and Clear. I am beginning to think it is due to stress, or my friend has even told me that it could be due to respiratory problems, possibly due to my lack of exercise, which I plan on doing as much as I can at college (I was planning to before my friend even told me about that).

 

 

Relationship

 

Nothing to really say here. Still single, and as I said earlier, not feeling positive about my looks, and at the moment, not sure I will find somebody. Just figured I would throw this in here, since I usually have this kind of thing in my blog.

 

Well, there is a girl at work, but she is only into country guys, which I'm not :P But she is going to my old college :P

But oh well, I really wish I could learn to just focus on college. :P

You sure it's acne and not a result of poor shaving technique? Could be skin irritation because your hairs are being cut weird.

 

Shave in the same direction of the grain of the hair. Lot of people don't learn this in their teens and end up shaving against the grain.

I'm not sure if it is acne, but I already knew, and do shave in the direction of the grain. That and the acne, or w/e aren't in the area I typically shave in..pretty much below my eyes, down to about mouth level, and then along the edge where I stop shaving,
