so this morning has been stressful.
first, i have class tonight, so i had homework to do (still not done, but it's okay). so part of that was making sure i had access to a textbook for our class so i could take two short inventories. i got those done and out of the way thanks to some smart thinking. so that's over and done with. i also had to order my other textbook for this class. that was kind of stressful because last night i tried to do so and my order wouldn't go through. i tried three times and i have three charges of $1 to my bank account, but yet i have no order history as the orders wouldn't go through. i was just really confused about it. in the end, i got my book ordered, and i think i'm good to go.
second, i was wondering when my loan money would come through so i could go grocery shopping for healthy groceries to cook in my apartment at school. so, i emailed financial aid to see when that would be going through. their response was very short and simply told me that loans would not be processed until the spring semester (right now it's intersession classes) and that i could not have allocated for intersession because that's impossible. this is upsetting because i was told by someone in the office that i COULD apply for aid for intersession and so i did. now it's all mixed up and i'm going to be living on $100 until the end of january. this, alone, will barely be enough to cover gas. thank god for paul because he loaned me $200 since i had to buy that textbook that i talked about, and pay a bill. i hate taking money from him, but he likes to help so he was willing to.
i'm coming down off of the stress high right now, but while i was stressed, i noticed something. my first thought was "eat." i just wanted to shove some food in my face in the hopes that it would make everything better. i didn't think about a particular food, i just wanted to eat. this is probably something a lot of people can relate to, i'm sure. and i was aware that i stress ate. the reason this is on my mind now is because i actually caught myself and although i needed to eat, so i did, i made sure it was a healthy snack. it seems like such a small thing, but it's kind of a big victory for me because it's been such a downfall of mine for so long.
okay. i guess it's time to go finish that homework and maybe take a snooze. i also have to figure out what i'm going to take with me to class for dinner.
