Actually I’m drinking Gin & Tonic. I’ll save the whiskey for a celebratory evening. Today I found out that my schedule is wrong AGAIN. Apparently I’m missing a class in the music (I have a ton of music classes for some reason) module of my program and if I don’t take this class, then I’m basically failing school…..
I want to scream.
I literally had an appointment this past Friday to fix my schedule and to make sure I’m taking the right courses and NO ONE told me this. But now I find out today when I can’t meet the head of my program again until Friday which will put me practically a month behind in that specific class. Not to mention I’ve already been added to two new classes this week, totaling my course schedule to 10 classes.
I wouldn’t have bothered adding an elective in order to take that required class but the heads of the program pushed us to take it. Then come to find out that I also might not be officially registered for the elective I’m taking even though EVERYONE is aware that I’m taking it!
I’m busting out the conspiracy meme, because I think they want me to fail out of this program. I’m the only person in my school with a full ride in this school, which came by way of the previous school president who is now retired. They make no money off of me being there, so I feel they’re doing the absolute most to push me out. At this point: I’m currently homeless (even though I have shelter) and unemployed (though I do have money and payments coming in from previous gigs); failing school is just the icing on the fucking cake.
I was so angry today that I went to the other theatre school I’ve previously mentioned on here where Olivia Wilde, Colin Farrell, and Aidan Turner trained. I signed up for a free class audit this Friday. If I switch schools I wouldn’t be able to start until next year because the new application cycle starts in October. However I just want to see if this will be a better place for me. Worse comes to worse, I go back home and apply for one of the acting programs in New York or go to Temple University in Philadelphia like many of my theatre peers did. I’m going to graduate from a theatre school come hell or high water.
