Director of department said if someone takes detailed notes week one and I am released to return to school after just a week I can stay in the program, otherwise I have to sit out the semester. I've put all my textbooks on credit card waiting for my student loans to come in, some of which cannot be returned. I am soooooo exhausted and have not gotten through the packet of stuff they gave us to do between semesters. I'm thinking taking the semester off is my best bet right now as much as I hate to do it. All of my friends were able to sign up for class together, but I didn't register soon enough to get into the same class. No one I know is in my class and so I have no one to take notes for me. And the idea of starting the semester so behind terrifies me. However, the financial strain dropping this semester is just as terrifying. I guess I just don't know what to decide, and I'm upset that my body has betrayed me. But I am feeling like my options are slim right now.
