Jael or Job?
Arriving into Canada’s international airport I was directed and lead to the wrong line which caused my to miss my connecting flight. The guy was busy texting he just said I “needed” to go and pick up my luggages and take them upstairs, and pointed me in the direction with the other Ethiopians. After wasting 25 mins and several trips back and forth, I finally went up to someone else I was informed that US citizens’ luggages are already upstairs. I jet up stairs…heated at this point to find that plane is boarding & I cannot get on and the next flight wasnt for another 4 hours.
Disappointed is an understatement when it comes to Air Canada. Not flying with them any time soon.
Then the next day, and for the next several weeks I found myself in OSU’s financial aid office because my scholarships and grants were completely messed up. Turns out somewhere, somehow, OSU thought I already received my bachelors degree. After 9 weeks of verification some of my grants finally come in….
But I’m thinking like WHAT degree? If so handed over, I can bang out early!
Now remember, I just spent the ENTIRE summer in Ethiopia, as well as last summer. Which means that those months I could not work, and I was heavily relying on my aid. Also, during the school year I was saving money for the trip. Savings & checking accounts have been completely depleted. Not to mention that although I had both my debit and credit with me in Ethiopia. They were BOTH used by someone spending a couple thousands of dollars on JustFab, UDF, KFC and random other place.
The Lord had to literally provide my taxi trip (which is $40USD) from Debre Zeyit to Addis, because ya girl didnt have it. Thank you Yared for helping me out!!!
With my bank accounts on 0, and financial aid trippin’ rent is coming up, cell phone needs to be turned on & gas needs to be in the tank so why not get a job? Well the work study I was supposed to be granted, wasn’t because of OSU’s financial aid mishap. I just started working about 2 weeks ago, and OSU’s policy is you have to work about a month before you get your first pay check. So the struggle bus continues….On top of stressing about paying bill, OSU drop me from my classes, threatening my projected graduation date of May 2016.
So class= a wreck
Finances as well.
Next stop the home life….
Lordt. Jesus. Pray for me please(:
Part two will be later :) stay tuned.
