I almost feel like there should be a full stop after that. I can't even think straight anymore. Anyone else? it can't just be those of us who are Bipolar. I just cannot deal anymore.
I had a fixed place at a university to study photography at the end of February, and then through some left-hand-not-talking-to-right-hand bullshit, they postponed my spot to September. Now I don't trust them at all, and am having to research and apply to 500 other schools looking for someone who will look past my (previously mentioned) crappy grades, and take me based on my portfolio and current status. When I was in uni previously I was at the height of my disorder, untreated, and it was an unmitigated disaster.
That was .... seven bloody years ago. Now each application is costing 50-200 USD (about 250-600 of my currency ... a coke is 1.50 here too, so you can imagine), and everyone is wanting my old highschool record sent directly from my old schools (who no longer have said records because it was 15 years ago for fucks sake), or from the issuing bodies in Britain. Who want 45 pounds (200 bucks) for each certificate sent off.
They also want both mailed and FAXED copies of all my transcripts, application forms, form from my dad's bank, health checks, portfolios, statements of intent, previous course descriptions for each paper undertaken, etc etc etc.
I want to scream.
It's so overwhelming I just ... I don't know what to do. And all the "contact us"/ "help" forms lead you back to "please check our website for more information", which helps fuck all do .. well .. fuck all.
