    How do you qualify for a federal loan?

    1
    I applied for a federal loan but I recieve financial aid and the FA department told me I have to write them a letter stating why I need a loan. I am unsure what the loan is suppose to be for. I thought loans were for students that need money to live off of and not only to pay for classes. I don't know what to write in the letter but I do need the loan and I really need money.

    I feel exhausted. Did anyone have this feeling?

    Hello, everyone! This year I graduate. Now there are lots of things to do, like, getting prepared for defending diploma and choosing where to apply for Master’s course, finding job. However, I feel too exhausted to do anything. Literally. Like, for the last 2 months  I wake up tired, the things I used to like don’t seem interesting anymore.  I used to feel anxious a lot before exams, but...

    Indecision

    2
    I am confused. I go to a good college and i have a really good financial aid package here, but i feel drawn toward the college that my parents and brother went to and my boyfriend goes to now. It is much more expensive, and to transfer would cause a bit of chaos and probably push my graduation back. It is also a bigger college, and i always wanted to go to a smaller one, like the one i'm at now....

    Not suited for college

    1
    I'm at my fourth year in college and I still find myself severely lacking as a person to make it through the challenges I have to face. I'm still a very irresponsible person. I constantly submit past deadlines and let my groupmates down. I always cram reviewing for my exams and I always submit mediocre work. I constanly cut classes coz I just don't have the discipline to wake up on time. And if I...

    What to do?

    0
    Sometimes I think God wants me to go back to school and other times not at all. My parents want me too, I think I do, and it seems right in the world. But I also feel God is focusing me on service! I mean I feel the biological clock ticking and myself being the one throwing it all away?

    Time Management

    0
    I am currently a sophomore in college, and one of my biggest struggles is time management. I often find myself waiting until the last moment to complete assignments and study for tests, which I think is why my grades are not great. I struggle to balance my time between my schoolwork (classes and intense homework load), my job, going to the gym, having time to exercise, and have a social life....

    Let's talk about therapy pets.

    Hiya.So one of my favorite things in the world is my little red-eared slider turtle, Gregory (who is a girl). She lives with my roommate and me in our dorm. Why do I have a non-fish friend in my dorm? Because she's registered with my school as a therapy animal! (Actually, she's registered as an accronym I can't quite remember, but that's beside the point.) Yay!(Now, it might seem rather strange...

    College Disaster and more

    UGH! That's all I have to say about that.Originally I was going to school for Graphic Design at a local private college. I got into an opportunity program that supports me financially as well as academically. I started summer of 2012. It took me a long, long time to make any friends there. I mostly stayed in my own little corner of the school. Mostly staying in my opportunity programs office. I...

    I could have done better.

    I failed by exam in BUS25, I got a 32/50 64%I needed to get a minimum of 80% to avoid doing the presentation. Because I fell far below that I am forced to present. I am terrified of speaking in front of people. I remember the announcement of getting a Citizenship Award and blacked out for the actual standing on stage getting it. Same thing happened in my English class last semester; we had to...

Writing is a very common activity for the learners of all levels. You have to deal with writing from school, college and university levels. It’s a challenge but can present good knowledge to students. Students can grow through their writing...

    SO TIRED

    6
    I have not slept properly in over a month; I been up for two days finishing homework and preparing for exams. Every time I turn in something I have to begin another. I cannot keep this up, it is draining me. I am trying to find a balance between homework and relax but every time I relax I feel guilty for even breathing because that time could be better spent doing homework and preparing for exams.
