I wasn't referring specifically to you there, but why did you let them choose your school if they're not even gonna help pay for it?
If you were referring to me about the college thing, I can see where you're coming from. I know people who's parents can't pay for their college either, but usually those people get, BOG waiver, scholarships and/or financial aid, as well as having a job...unlike me I don't have any of those. And it's actually my dad that pays my tuition (not both my parents). He works overtime so he can afford the installment plan (as well as paying for bills), it's not easy, but he wants me to go to school, so he chooses to pay for it. Anything else, I have to pay for...like housing if I wanted to go away to school. Which is no problem if I had a job, but no one will hire me. Since I have the worst luck when it comes to finding a job, I'm afraid to take out a student loan, and still have that bad luck continue and have no way to pay it off. I also barely have any clothes, own one pair of shoes, and everything like my desk, and bed was a "hand me down" that we got from a family member that didn't need it anymore or a garage sale. I have to pay for everything else, which is really difficult to do without a job (which no one I know seems to understand, they just say "just ask your parents for money" -____- but it's like 'we don't have any money'). My home life is horrible, it's a really bad environment to be in, which is why I needed to go to school as far away from home as possible. Some people don't have a problem living at home, so living at home for them while going to school is no big deal. But if anyone has lived the hell I lived/go through everyday, they'd complain too. I've given up everything in my life, because my parents rely on me so much, it would of been nice to have a little bit of happiness for a change, but that even gets taken away from me.
