When it rains it pours. I just wnated to take a little break from my back to back year long run of classes for one week in October. Mind you I didn't even mind that I would be starting my new classes on the same week into which my birthday fell. I figured that's life right. Well it seems that I am at one of those junctures where my previous credits matter in terms of the classes that I take next so they had to have my college transcripts from my other class. So I thought they already had them as I had ordered them and they had said they received them 3 months ago so I go blithely into my rest week right. Then one week stretches in to two and two to three, long story short they call me 1 day before I am to become out of compliance for my financial aid to tell me that I need to reenroll in classes. Mind you I had called them both of the unscheduled two weeks that I was out of classes. Anyway it seems as though the transcripts that thye had received previous were incomplete so they needed me to order them. Then they called me back to say that one day to get reenrolled that I would have to go ahead and sign a waiver to close the file on those three classes which adds 9 more credits of classes that I have to take to complete my degree. Well she sent me the Authorization to close form. I had the devil's own time trying to get it faxe d to her in time. So I sqeak by by about 40 minutes on gettng enrolled in my new class right. So the first week goes by. While I was out of my classes I had been having some trouble with mycomputer systembut nothing I couldn't handle. I even quipped to my bf that it would work just well enough and long enough for my classes to start and then it would go BYE BYE! Well I must be psychic because it did. My bf who know s nothing about computers brougt me one that is a 400 mhz processor with 128 megs of ram. My desktop was a 2.4 Gig with a 400mb ram so this is quite a comedown, and is not even meeting the minimum of barely sufficient for my needs. So there goes my internet job out the window until I can get another system right. So I was pricing them online this afternoon in preparation for asking the bf if I could borrow $150 from the money that we have saved up for the first time in a long time. He calls me from work, in the midst of my checking out for my new factory refurbished desktop to let me know, he fell off of a ladder at work and broke his wrist. Well we are both independant contractors and business owners. Business has been slack for me because I have been concentrating on school though I have kept up with my adult webcam gig noetheless. Thats where my meager funds were coming from. Well he hangs wallpaper, which is something that you cannot do well with just one hand and writst. However if he don't work he don't get paid as he get's paid daily or by the job! I swear I must live in the Seattle, Washington area of trying to save something for a rainy day. The minute that I start saving it starts raining and then the whole G.C. roof caves in and soaks me!
