I just don’t understand how my life can go from so great to so fucked up in a matter of days.
I was so optimistic that everything was finally starting to work out for me and now this fucking school drama is happening and I don’t know what to do!
It all started at the end of the first week of classes. I decided to change my “major” because I had no interest in hair and any of the other stuff the basic course offered. So I decided to switch to the Esthetician course. You know me, I love doing makeup and that was the whole purpose of me even going. So I let my teacher know that I would be switching so I could focus on that full time. Well everything was fine and dandy until today when Gail pulled me aside and told me that if I wanted to switch course that the hours I have put in so far no longer counted AND I would have to pay ANOTHER 105 dollar deposit even though I am only in week three of the course. Which I think is bullshit because I told them only a week into the course and they let me go 2 more weeks after they put me on the Esthetician class track. They SHOULD have let me know about the extra money and the time lost right when I came to them so I could have made a more informed decision and not wasted two more weeks.
Also me switching doesn’t put any extra work in for the teachers. All they have to do is erase “Basic” and write “Facials” on my file. I haven’t even sat down with her yet to talk about the loan information so it really shouldn’t be that big of a deal. But she said that the owner of the school requires that 105 dollars. I personally think they are only asking me to pay up again so that I will change my mind about switching so that they can get a bigger tuition off of me since the basic course would bring them 12,000+ dollars instead of the 6,000 that they would get off me if I switched to the Esthetician course. I don’t have 100 bucks to pull out of my ass to switch and I sure as hell do not want to pay back a loan for 12,000 when I am only going to be using one skill they taught me out of all the ones offered for basic!
So I clocked out and left at lunch after they told me since my time spent there isn’t being counted until I pay that 100 bucks to “officially transfer”.
Ugh, if I would have KNOWN about the Esthetician course in the beginning I would have just started on that but they pushed the basic course on me and promised I would learn makeup during it. Turns out they focus more on hair and only like a week or so on the Esthetician side. So of course I am going to want to switch out of that and into a course that focuses more on what I want to do with my life! That makes sense, right?
Blah, idk what to even do now. It almost makes me not want to go back but I know that I would only be letting myself down if I didn’t. Fuck everything. I need a drink.
