Scared

I applied for college (university, whatever you want to call it) not too long ago. I sent my transcript from my previous college just last week. My junior year of highschool, the same time I started going to college is when my life really turned around. I got all good grades before, then I started not going to school and nearly failing for the next two years. I'm a shitty secretary with a shitty job. I'm afraid if I dont get in to school this time I may just give up. Its been 2 1/2 years since I graduated. I've nearly given up already.
I'm afraid that I wont be able to do it. My parents pay for school but I pay for everything else. I'm afraid that I wont have enough money to do so. I want to finish my degree more than anything in the world. But right now, the time that I have finally taken any action to do so, I'm more afraid than ever.

    Don't give up, if you want it more than anything in the world you can do it.

    Don't stress about time, time is irrelevant, only achieving your goal is.

    Just hang in there, keep telling yourself "I can do this", remember how bad you want it and you'll get there.

    Thank you. I just don't know how to do it. I applied to a private school tha my boyfirned attended. the only one i really knew in this state minus the uic. which i've heard fom many people is bad. i want nothing more than to be sucesive. not even that, just to be independent. i want to be a lwayer. i've applied. i applied drunk. I can;t even remember if I applied for fall or spring, which is already going on. I nearly faid out of fucking community college. If you don't know that listen to Chris Rock about community college, that sums it up exactly. How would any school accept a person who can't control thir life, can't ontrly what makes them happy and can barely pass a community college.

    Thanks you both. You know I love you both. I guess time is the worst thing of all. Both Ed and my dad have told me to just easily expalin the past and why things look the way they do and I can easily get in. I just can't. I won't. It will bea at least another month until they reject me. But thanks. It means alot.

    No one can really control their life, life is just a game, you just prepare for the worth and hope for the best. But it does mean you should no aim for goals or dreams.

    But you can take control of yourself, sometimes it is hard work, but it is possible.

    My life was a mess years ago and I was out of control, fucking up everything i started or that was around me, but I manage to get the control back. It is not easy, but you can do it.

    I don't know you a lot, so I can't say much more as I don't know what you mean by not in control of your life, there is many way a life can get out of control and it is unique for everyone...
