The holidays are over and it is nearly time to get back to work. When I say work, I mean working to make people work so that I can continue to go to school. My mind keeps wondering about that check in the mail that was sent a month ago to my university. Where could the letter be now? In someone's box, on an assistants desk, in a pile waiting to be discovered or worse....LOST!!!! Will I be terminally "account on hold"?
The result of my "hold" situation is that I cannot see my grades, sign up for classes that I need to start in a few weeks, AND most importantly apply to the nursing school that starts in August. I cannot send ANY transcripts. I thought I fought the registrar and won back in November and AGAIN in December but no. I lose because they lost paperwork in November or didn't do their job therefore, I am delayed months in getting money to pay off my semester.
I have made all A's, I have paid everything on time in the past yet I now feel frustrated and punished for THEIR paperwork mistake. I wonder how many people this happens to. I wonder if this is punishment for not taking a student loan. I wonder how many people have touched the envelope that has my money in it by now.
I cannot wait to stop being the college mommy, so the sooner and faster I can get it done the better. Cross your fingers this week that all things will work out for me!
I go back in to see the Registrar on Monday.
