Long story short... I found out this past week that my financial aid had been cancelled for this coming term (the term that starts tomorrow). I had to take an extension on one of my classes from last term, which puts it in the computer as me not having completed all my classes, which kicks me out of eligibility for financial aid, which means I can't attend classes at all Winter Term. Aghhh!!
I emailed my advisor about it, mainly just telling him the situation and asking if he could let me into the building to get my stuff out of my locker. His response was that I should meet with the Dean and that she may have an idea or two to get me back in classes sooner. Which I totally wasn't expecting! I was sure all hope was gone for resolving this quickly, but he makes me think there might be a way for me to take classes this term after all.
So now I'm in panic-mode, trying to gather up all my stuff that I'll need tomorrow. I was already sort of resolved to just taking the term off and looking for work to tide me over, but now that things may actually be resolved, I figure I should attend class in the meanwhile, just in case I can re-register. Missing even a day in this program can put you way behind.
To top it all off, my sleep schedule has gotten completely out of whack, as per normal when I'm on vacation. If I'd anticipated returning to classes tomorrow, I would've tried harder this past week to pull my sleeping schedule back to normal, but I didn't... so... Just to give you perspective, last night I didn't fall asleep until 5:30 in the morning. That's probably not going to work anymore now that I have to be at class at 10:00 a.m.!
