Exclamation Shitting Bricks! - January 20th 2009, 02:22 AM

So, as you all may know by now, I'm attending school online for Illustration. It's going to be the best thing ever and I'm exited as crap about it.

Well, my school JUST put up everyone's class syllabuses/syllabi(?), and I'm looking through it and I'm only just finding out now that I need three books for one of my classes, and a $300 Analysis of Form Kit for MY MOST IMPORTANT CLASS THIS SEMESTER.

The shitter of this whole thing is that all I could access, and what I assume was the only thing accessable to other online students, and there was NOTHING telling me about books or this $300 kit. I'm reeling because my boss just told me that he has to give me off this week, and I have all of $80 to my name. And that has to go to my phone bill, plus the DSL that my mom ordered to I can even do this online nonsense.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU what do I do? The only thing I can imagine now is waiting a month and THEN getting my things, but there's a very slim chance I'll get away with it; I say a month because I'm getting $2k excess Financial Aid, and I can do whatever I want with it. I'll gladly book those materials with said money, but I won't be getting it for another month.

When you whisper, you must be absolutely as sincere as when you scream.

Try talking to the school? Explain that you didnt know you needed it, and that you cant afford it this month, but you will definatly be able too next month. They might be able to loan it to you for a month, or let you borrow the money, or just delay payment. Im sure a lot of other students are in your position, so they should already have a plan of what to do.

Can you help this girl?

So, is that what you call a getaway?
Tell me what you got away with.
Cause I've seen more spine in jellyfish.
I've seen more guts in eleven-year-old kids.
Have another drink and drive yourself home.
(I hope there's ice on all the roads.)
And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt,
and again when your head goes through the windshield.

Seconded. Give them a call pronto.

I am waylaid by Beauty. Who will walk
Between me and the crying of the frogs?
