@LuigiMan200, Hope all goes well with your situation~

@GCM, <3 buddy. You can't let these things affect you. I'm sure you're a catch, you just need to look in the right places. Or maybe just not be looking at all right now, you're young there's still time. Don't take these things personally at all. You'll find the right person for you~

On another note I was informed I have to get my wisdom teeth removed, joy :0

They don't have private loan companies? In the US they hand out student loans like candy.

As long as you're going to school for something worthwhile a few thousand here or there is not a huge deal.

According to @LuigiMan200's profile he's from the UK, so I guess he's at least not getting saddled with the interest rate spike student loans were just hit with here ...

And I don't think private/federal loans makes a difference; both can be incredibly merciless when it comes to getting the money you owe them.

Exactly.

I meant more along the lines of a private loan company could bail him out now since he said he has very little to work with the next couple years.

And don't worry, you're speaking to the choir about interest rates on student loans. lol. Tends to make a fairly significant difference when your education costs are in the hundreds of thousands.

@AlexSays - I see what you mean. However, the reason I applied for grants in the first place was to avoid this kind of situation; having to pay back what I spent. A loan would only deepen the hole that's been dug as I'd be stuck having to pay back the loan company, pitting me back to square 1; y'know? Plus the possible interest loans and all that...

At least this 'mistake' happens now then at the end of the 3 year course...
And if the US truly have it worse, then in some ways; I should be thankful.

Oh I know. Loans should not be taken lightly, and I can see how you would be hesitant if your career goals are still up in the air. They're just a necessary evil for some people.

I don't know how it works for the UK, so I can't say for sure we have it worse. I actually don't have many problems with it. Subsidized loans are available so the government pays the interest until students are finished with school, and students in my field very nearly have a guaranteed high paying job once they're finished.

So they're still a good avenue for lesser fortunate people to seek higher education, it's just up to people to be responsible and ensure they can carry the burden once they have graduated. Hopefully higher interest rates scare off some more students from taking out unnecessary loans to finance less-than-helpful degrees (you know who you are! lol).

@Retro_on_theGo: You and me think identically. I understand what you mean... I usually (mentally) beat myself up for stupid unimportant things and usually forgets about simple things. I hate it too..... >:[

My life right now feels like its stuck in a rut. I'm just sitting around, wasting time literally doing nothing. I know I need to get proactive and start trying to find a new job, think/plan about the future, ect. but I can't find any motivation and feel completely hopeless...

I feel the same way, bro. Didn't get the job I was expecting this summer and I already finished my studies for now so I'm just sitting around doing nothing. I played F-zero X so much today that I got sick of it and stopped mid cup. I've been looking for other jobs to no avail.

@WingedFish, I feel you. My summer has basically been me sitting around doing nothing, crying, doing unwise actions to forget about pain, with the occasional good moment here and there. I really need a job as well, and I'm very fearful about this next year and what it might hold- mostly regarding college after high school is over. The future seems very blurred for us and it's definitely hard to make sense of what to do with ourselves at this moment in time. I hope the best for you in this time <3

@Retro, I can also relate to this. We just have to do our best to not let the little things get the better of us, but it's not easy~

@Varia
Why do I have the feeling that I share the same style with you 2 guys?
Anyway, curse my procrastination, I need to finish this blasted homework!
Tip for procrastination: Do things bit by bit instead of looking at it like a big thing.

@Retro, @Emaan My situation is even worse. Forgive this long ramble, but this always feels like the best place to let out my feelings, since I don't really have any real world friends.

You see, I've been through two jobs within less then a few months. First was at McDonald's, where I was at for a while. Then I got offered a job at a dog boarding kennel, which I quickly took and dropped McDonald's over. And I loved my job; working with animals was something I've wanted to do ever since I learned how to talk. But in less then two months, I got fired and was told I wasn't fit for the position. That was the biggest blow to me in recent memory, to be told that I wasn't any good at my childhood dream job. I have no idea where to turn now; not even video games give me much enjoyment anymore.

Every aspect of my life since has been met with total apathy. Even my beloved pets have been neglected, because I just don't feel like anything in life is worthwhile now. All in all, I feel absolutely miserable. In fact I'm crying as I write this...

All I can say is to keep your head up high even when things are at it's bleakest. There will be always something out there for ya.

Not something I just found out today. It's just today's events proved it. I thought he was a good friend and reliable and I've sacrificed so much for him only to be beaten with the same truth for the 100th time that he's only using me. Can't say I'm sad but rooming with him next semester is bothering me. It's too late to change it if you thought about the suggestion. I have too much stuff to worry about.
