    Xone, I hear all of that.

    I had to take a leave of absence from my schooling which has put me into a financial bind currently.

    We just lost our house because the rent was so high it wasn't worth it trying to kill ourselves to stay - so we squeezed 3 bedrooms into a tiny apartment for the time being. This is the 8th move in 2 years.. I'm tired of it.

    It's amazing how they trick you into believing that you can do so much more with school - but that has been the source of most of my issues.

    I hope yours sort themselves out soon!

    Well I got my money, but only because the guy I had t see made an error, and instead of claiming it (which would go against him since its an error) he gave ME the paperwork and said "get rid of it""

    Do their employees suffer from "slacker syndrome"?

    I remember accompanying a friend once to pay a parking ticket and we had to wait a few minutes to get a hold of someone, apparently they were too busy playing Solitaire (the computer monitors were facing us)...

    schools have to be positive about the outlook after you finish school or no one would bother with it

    most of my 'problems' now come from being heavyly bullyed at school because of my speech impediment, and because of that time in my life i am now in a groove which i've been in for so very long i can't get out of

    I know I felt differently during the original post time but I have to admit.. I graduated last June and had a job at the beginning of July working for the County and have been doing really well - I don't think it was the school persay, but the degree definitely helped!

    It's kind of why I have been absent. For the first time since I joined pwnem I have my own place near my family with a really good job.. been hard to maintain socially until recently.

    I'm sorry about that GaMeR.

    I think it's safe to say that most of us had to go through losing someone at some point, I know I did. Although nobody deals with this in the same way, so please feel free to talk about it more if it would help you at all.

    There's never really a good way to comfort people when this happens, but know you have my condolences.

    Thanks for the condolences.

    On a more positive note, due to these incidents I've decided to make it a habit to reach out to people who I haven't talked to in a while with more frequency in the past couple of months with positive results. I recommend looking into this if you haven't attempted it in a while. Worse case scenario, they may just ignore you but you weren't talking to them anyway so it's not a big deal. With technology it's not very time consuming either, you can just drop a quick email, text, or FB message etc.

    This is great advice. It also takes both sides of any relationship making an effort to keep it alive, and a lot of people don't understand that. Most of the time, I hear "Well, so-and-so hasn't texted me for weeks, so I'm not going to text them."

    I actually don't have anyone in my life that I don't keep regular contact with that I want to. I pretty cut everyone out of my life that was more or less just an acquaintance. Cut my FB friends list from thousands to just around 200. Wondered why in the heck I had all of the people I went to high school with - or had met a couple times, or were siblings of friends, etc. - as friends on FB when I was never real friends with them in the first place. I don't care about their lives now, I have no interest in ever hanging out with them in person. So there was literally no reason for me to be FB friends with them, other than the fact that we sat in the same building for 4 years together. I guess what I'm saying is don't bust your buns trying to keep in contact with/impress people that you reallllyyyy don't care about anyway or vice versa. I spent many many years of my life caring what people thought too much and trying to please everyone. "But I can't unfriend Joe Schmoe from 8th grade biology class! He'll be offended!" Trust me, Joe Schmoe doesn't care and probably won't even notice. And if he does, who cares what Joe Schmoe from 8th grade thinks?! Quality not quantity :)
