General Check in School Edition

Posted January 24, 2018 By kmarrs

I’m nearing the end of an 8-week break.  It has been a glorious break and I wish I could extend it, but alas, it’s about time to go back to class.  I’m enrolled in two classes this term.  The first starts on the 12th of February and the second starts 6 weeks after that.

I was hoping to take this summer off, but it isn’t looking like that will be possible.  It messes with my financial aid and my work-study funds.  Which… I gotta be able to work and I have to be able to work my usual hours with no break.  We really need the income.

What really sucks is I think I’m going to have to take 3 classes over the summer, which means doubling up 2 at a time for 1 6 week block.  It’s unfortunate and my mental health won’t like it, but I’m about out of loan money so I have to go fulltime to get the full grant allotment.

I hope there is enough grant money.  I’m kind of screwed if there isn’t.  I’m still waiting for my award letter for the 2018-2019 school year.  I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.

It would be so much better if they didn’t cap the dollar amount of student loans you can take out.  I had a good system going.  School fulltime will be rough.  Having to drop out because there isn’t enough grant money will be rougher.  I’m just… I’ll go fulltime if I have no choice but I really don’t want to drop out.  Paying off those loans with no degree will be impossible.

The American education system is so broken.  University should be free.  It is actually better for the economy if the population is educated and as it stands to get educated you have to drown yourself in debt.  It’s a broken system held hostage by a broken country.

I’m tired.

Award

Posted January 24, 2018 By kmarrs

I was awarded the award you see to the left by feedspot.  You can find some great blogs on BPD if you follow the link.  I came in 10th place, which isn’t so shabby considering I only post about a dozen times a year.  I would like to kindly thank feedspot for this award.  It’s highly appreciated.

Love

First, I’m going to remind that Pat and I are in an open marriage.  We are both polyamorous.  There are many reasons for this, but it is a mutual decision as to what works best for us.  I’m not going to list all the reasons.  I’m not going to sit here and defend it.  I’m also not going to tolerate shit for this post.  I’m happy.  Pat is happy.  That’s all the matters.

I have a girlfriend.  She is magical beyond compare.  She isn’t local.  She lives a couple of states away.  We met on Tumblr.  She is… there are no words.  I love her very, very much.  She is sweet, kind, loving, compassionate, and beautiful inside and out.  I’m very lucky to have her in my life and to be loved by her.

I’m not going to go into great detail about who she is.  She isn’t out to her family.  So by vague blogging, I’m looking to protect her.  But you don’t need her details.

Just… I’m so excited to have her in my life.

Pat, of course, knows about her.  He has no complaints.  I’m open and honest with him about everything and make sure that in my excitement for my gf, that I don’t neglect him.

Also, online relationships are hard.  Internet hugs just aren’t the same.  But I hope to go and visit her this May.  A few details need to be worked out and it may not be possible.  But I so very much hope it is.

I love her.  My heart grew when I met her and learned to love her.
