So... I have been struggling trying to pay for my college books for the past 5 weeks because my professors are so darn picky on keeping up to date on the "latest edition".
My books costs me about $663 in total. So instead of me paying $100 for all 6 of my books online, I have to break my pockets because of some newest illustrations and a caption or two ðŸ˜ .
I had to beg my parents and relatives for money (I even asked my 11 year sister for some of her allowance money). It was pretty embarrassing, considering me and my parents barely get along and I asked relatives who I haven't spoken in years, plus a little girl who loves all the change she can get.
But guess what? Today (just now), I felt like checking my fafsa award letter to just to see how much I may be getting back as a refund check and lo and behold it said I have a 1,000 book scholarship. I didn't even know my fafsa was updated, or where that scholarship even came from.
Yes, I did apply for that scholarship back in like March, but I was never notified by the scholarship representatives or my school, telling me that I had recieved it. Like how long have I even had that?
Imagine my frustration at the fact that I went through all this embarrassment and shame for nothing. More so at my school for not telling me that they changed my award letter and did not notified me about it or the scholarship.
I'm not as angry as I was before I started venting on this post. So that's a plus. But still...
