I HATE FINANCIAL AID. - russians d0 it best
you can't open the book of my life in the middle.
wow. wtf. so I gave that final a shot and most likely will have to take the class again in the fall. dammit. ah well, I expected that so I'm over it. what I am pissed off about are the following. right before my final, I call in just to check if the financial aid office got all my info and come to find out that I did and my waiver was approved. the catch is that my parents make too much money and I'm not elligible for any this year aid. that made my mood a little sour going into that final. seriously, they should reimburse people for the hours they spend putting that application together if they're going to reject them. so after the final, I figure I'll stop by work and check out my schedule for the next few weeks while I have open availability and find out I have two day shifts and two night shifts. and somehow I'm supposed to live off of that, especially when I'm a better server than most of the people there.

I don't like to go around and telling everyone that I deserve this or deserve that, I will be modest when I feel I've earned something. or at least try. now I won't be modest or quiet when I feel I have earned not only better shifts but more closing shifts, especially when I see people who have less seniority and generally less experience get the hours that I need and earned.

maybe there's something else involved here or something I missed so I'll have to chat with the managers because I can't keep on working there if I'm going to keep on getting these shifts. oh, yeah. I'm leaving for maryland tomorrow afternoon. me and the old high school crew have rented a beach house in crisfield, maryland and will be having a blast. so, schedule for tomorrow:

10:30am - meet with financial aid people and kick someone's ass (doesn't have to be financial aid people, just someone)
11:00am - lunch shift at work and make a few extra $$
5:15pm - flight leaves for dulles, VA/washington DC airport

hmm. I still need to find a ride to the airport around 4pm. now if anyone knows any good sushi places in the washington DC areas, lemme know. that's the tentative plan because we have a four hour drive from the airport to the beach house and we've all decided to eat somewhere nice/fancy before we head out.

oh, and go see this movie when it comes out. - everything is illuminated - trailer

if you like the song at the end of the trailer, click below. I'll be back sunday night so till then, rock on.

hold your grandmothers bible to your breast
gonna put it to the test
you wanted it to be blessed
and in your heart, you know it to be true

you know what'chya gotta do
they all depend on you
and you already know
and you already know
how this will end

it's bullshit and I'm not too happy with the financial aid department's reasoning so I'm gonna have to do some investimagating. assholes.

Financial aid is seriously one of the largest pains in the ass in the history of things that are a pain in the ass.

too bad there's no lube for financial aid.

Sup 'financial aid rejected because the parents make too much money' buddy.

There should be a box to check like "my parents are giving me $0 to pursue education"

apparently you have to be either 24, married or a veteran. or some lame crap like that.

That looks to be a pretty nifty movie. And another good song, Stanographer.

I found that trailer and I want to see it. I love Elijah Wood.

is it coming to rochester? probably, rather... most likely. a huge number of the donations to the little theatre are from jews.

we'll be there only for a few hours, but I'll be down there more often because my best friend is moving down there. what about cafe asia or kaz sushi bistro?

well our plans in DC got sidetracked so we ended up skipping out on it. but like I said, I'll be down more often and we'll have to do the sushi thing sometime.

I'll keep you posted and we'll be cool martial artist nerds!

I hate college.
I hate the bullshit that you have to go thru because of college.
They should just make the classes a buck a piece.
That way, poor kids like me can actually aford it! :)

All the while, how are you?
afk47 From: afk47 Date: August 22nd, 2005 04:47 am (UTC) (Link)
college is bullshit but it's how the system works and the only way to stick to the system/the man is to prove that it's not better than you and that you can put up with it's bullshit.

that's why I'm going back. that and I hate knowing that the people I grew up with and graduated high school are all making nearly 6 figures already. I know money isn't everything but you're talking to a competitive person. :P

haha, it's nice for what I saw but I'm sure it's much nicer.

I feel your pain, I've been rejejcted every year. The bastards! It's not like my parents are loaded with money, because they are only "paper rich". I wish school was shorter and cheaper. Serves me right for going to an expensive private school. *sigh*

Have fun on your trip!

yeah, I'm gonna have to go on strike or something. what good that'll do. haha.

You don't live with your parents.... do you? I thought you had a place with one of your friends. Or did you move back home? o_O

F.A. shouldn't be checking your parent's income if you're not living with them. It wouldn't make sense if they were checking the income of someone's parents who isn't living at home.

oh yeah... movie trailer looks good.

WAAAAA! I wish I was home so I could see you! I will be in Maryland for like 10 hours before I go out to California.. poop. Next time!
afk47 From: afk47 Date: August 22nd, 2005 04:57 am (UTC) (Link)
when are you getting home next?! grr!

if you decide to leave your job, i have a friend who works at the new uno's in webster, and she said that they are desperately looking for people to work there. she said that they're always super busy and they go on a wait for lunch and dinner, so you can get as many hours as you want. so you should check it out :)

p.s. i miss you and want to see you very badly <3 <3
afk47 From: afk47 Date: August 22nd, 2005 04:56 am (UTC) (Link)
I think I'll give fridays a few more chances, it'd be the right thing to do. I just really like the people there. if anything, I might try some of the finer restaraunts in webster, it seems to be a good place for a steady crowd I hear.

ps. and we'll hang out ASAP. :P
