WTF? How are you not in the yearbook?  At my high school, there was a picture for every single person in the school, based on the roster.  People might not show up on the event pages if they didn’t get involved, but they would be guaranteed their lameo school picture and name and grade in alphabetical order.  

So your parents decided to take away the money they were offering you and give it to your brother?  That would not fly with me.  Sit them down and have a discussion about it.  If they offered, they shouldn’t rescind it.  And is it too late to get in contact with the other school?  Maybe if you explained the situation they would be willing to consider, depending how popular/filled up they are.

go away and give yourself a chance to grow.  You can’t/won’t if you don’t try

<hugs> I can understand your pain, I  was never a great student in high school and never in the popular crowd. i didnt really have the best memories so i also questioned getting my high school yearbook. But why not i thought. I was a pretty good artist and not one but two of my artworks were featured in the yearbook!! When I flipped the pages of discovered that not one but both paintings were given credit to someone else!! I was pissed, and it still feels like a slap I’m the face.

Have you considered maybe taking just one class at a time? At least for now? That way you can still feel like your working on your goal. All you can do is the best you can do with the resources  you have.

If you’ve registered for classes, it’s likely that you’ve already been billed for the semester.  Your parents may have already paid for that.  So chin up about the first semester.  If they haven’t paid for it, you can work with the school to set up a payment plan.  Apply for financial aid (fill out the FAFSA with your parents) and see if you can get help for the second semester.

I would also contact the out of state school to see if the deal you mentioned is still available.  You never know!


Good luck.  Chin up.  You know that campaign for LGBTQ youth “it gets better”?  I think it applies to everyone, regardless of sexuality.  College is better than high school, and each year there’s something better that happens.
