Paint It Red


« on: January 28, 2012, 09:07:49 PM »

I'm 24 about to be 25 this year. Anyway I've really screwed up my college career over a love affair that made my grades horrendously bad. Supposedly my classes were to be dropped since I never attended the classes but they are on my record as F's. I'm shellshocked and it's been years since I even registered for those classes; this completely blindsided me. I'm kind of rock bottom with my life at the moment and I think going back to school will give me the confidence and positivity I need.

I really need the clarity to see if going back to school is the right decision. My passion has always been graphics design and painting, and I'm not expecting to make money out of it but I want to do something that I love and not push paper all day.

Another thing I'm pondering is I'm about 10k in student loan debt which really ain't much in the grand scheme of things, and I really don't know if I should dig deeper into debt with a college degree. I have a bunch of other useless loans like a car loan and some credit card bills and I owe about $1300 on my taxes this year (which I am royally screwed btw) which is making me second guess going to school.

I really need prayers for guidance and what God wants me to do, because I don't have a clue anymore.

Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

I understand COMPLETELY where you are coming from, I am in a similar boat about going back to Grad School..

College is expensive and hectic these days, definitely don't go into it with out Divine Guidance Smiley

stay blessed,

Avoid debt! I started thinking about doing a little to cover studying abroad this summer if my scholarships aren't going to cover it but I came to my senses. I'm 26 and I've never had debt and I'm not starting.

My brethren, I hope everybody's Lent is going well. I recently got accepted into a grad program in California (I live on the east coast). It's a private school and it costs a lot of money to go there. Pray that I get enough money to be able to attend. да будѣтъ воля Твоя!
