… and that time of year is the time of student finance. Don’t fret, I’ve already applied for it, but it’s this time of year that means the anxious waiting to see if they’ve got their act together for once to give me the damn money. Because I need money, as everyone does, for such vital things as a) eating and b) eating. And c) eating.
Eating is important, don’t judge.
Nothing gives you greater stress than the stress of logging onto your student finance page and having something unhelpful on it. Such as “We have everything we need from you at this time. Well contact you if we need anything further.” Right. Thanks. So if that’s really the case, shouldn’t you be done by now?! I am legitimately more stressed about this than I have been since the last time I had to do my student finance. I swear, next year I’m reapplying in MARCH or something.
Ok, so when I said I’d post more frequently, I lied. I actually meant I’d be posting less frequently and even more frivolously. Frivolity has its place, certainly, and that place is the internet. So that’s that.
Still, this blog post recaps an extremely stressful issue. That’s right, those walkers over at student finance. You make one mistake on your application, and you might as well just drop out of uni to be honest. It takes the, that long to sort out your financial worries. Money is important. It’s hard to buy food and train tickets without money. I use lots of both. Largely the latter rather than the former.
One good thing has been that I’ve been majorly considering every single thing I’ve had to buy. “Do I really need these shoes?” “Can I really find happiness in that book?” “Couldn’t I make that chicken breast stretch til the weekend?”
But, fear no more, fearful readers! For they’ve finally got their heads out of their arses and sorted me out. So now I have my money! Hooray! Aaaaand now I have to pay my mum back the money I’ve borrowed… Let’s hope she doesn’t want interest, eh?
