Wow… first off, just breath and *hugs* for you! Everyting will work out.  I am also a sr. and I will ‘graduate’ in may but I have to take classes until the end of july becuase im short like one “upper level elective” . So I totally understand the annoyance of school right now.

Is there an option for you to take it online or substitue another class for it?  If not, have you talked to your advisor or the department head to see if they can get you in somewhere? Sometimes the higher ups can get you into a class when professors are being anal about it.  If you think that the money and stress are going to be too much with everything going on I would take the semester off.  You have proven to yourself that you can go back after time off and this may be a time to just find a job, even though that is hard too, and save some money for next semester.  If you want to be sure the class will be offered talk to your advisor and they should have a pretty good idea if it will be.  Even looking at a catalog may give you the answer.

That sucks about the car issues and the fighting Future In-Laws.  Just try and be supportive of your FH and if they do seperate, it may be tough or weird, but it does get better.  My parents got divorced when I was 17, but my older sis was out of the house and in college and she said it was weird coming home to just moms or just dads, but it wasnt as bad as me and my younger sister having to see it every day. 

 

I hope that everything gets better and if you need to vent about school being obnoxious I will totally listen.

When it rains it pours… I’m sorry all of this is piling up at once.

I think you should talk to your parents. Don’t think of it as “running to mommy & daddy”. You just need a little bit of help to graduate. I’m sure, if they can swing it– they’ll help you out! Perhaps this means you’ll have to cut back on some wedding expenses, but education should always come first.

I’m sorry you & your Fiance have all this to deal with right now ((Hugs))

$3200 for a 5cr course?  ridiculous!  but stick it out and keep trying to find a class.. you’ll be happier you did once it’s over THIS semester!  I’m done with grad school in May, so the end is in sight for me as well!  I couldn’t imagine planning a wedding during this time.  I highly commend you for taking that on! 

car problems always suck suck suck.  think of your time with Future Mother-In-Law as quality family time 🙂

divorce?? eek!  if your Fiance is thinking that it may lead to that, it must be very serious.  I’m so sorry that you are going through this 🙁

my advice???  go get a massage!  I always love a spa day when I’m stressed.  there’s an aveda institute right down the street from me.  cheap and wonderful!

Well I think you need to finish school and get it behind you.  Espec since you are so close.  Can you get a student loan for this semester?  Or ask your parents to loan you the money and pay them back ASAP or try to make cut backs on the wedding to make up the difference.

As for the In-laws… that is their problems.  I think you shouldn’t get yourself all worked up over who gets a rental car etc.    You have enough to focus on.  Just try to help them when you can but don’t stress about it.

I agree that you should push through and finish the class now. Have you explained your situation to the professors? In my experience, they tend to make room for students who desperately need the class to graduate. If you stick around and keep going to class even if there’s room, I found that often after a few weeks, they’ll let you in. Good luck!
