hate ’em both, yep they sure have there ups and downs. Today i had to go into Centrelink to tell them that i was still studying for the next semester, i was going to go to Rockingham and stand in line for like 40mins, but thought that i was going to tafe. So why not go to Freo, that is where the letter came from as well. So i trundled off into Freo, found the place without getting lost which was a real suprise for me. 🙂 Then i went it, was the only person in line. Then i thought to myself, what is wrong here, normally i would be like 120 million gazillion people deep. Ok maybe that is a bit of an over exaggeration here. ANYHOW back to the story so i fronted up, told the lady what i needed to do and was told to take a seat and someone would be with me soon. About 5 mins later ( i know i was blown away as well!) a guy came over and helped me. He was very through and helpful as well. I also remembered to ask all the question that i could think of and also some i didn’t think of until i was there. It was my best Centrelink experience yet! And that is saying something! Now we come onto my bad part of the day.. TAFE. Don’t worry there is also some good in there as well so you’ll be ok, no boogy men around.
I got accepted into the Cert II- Horticulture Landscape course, which is very exciting to know about. The silly thing is that i still have to pay like $700-$800 bucks for my course. I don’t think that i have ever payed that much for a course ever in all my studying (except for this year). I think that the total of my study bills have come up to like $1,000 and that was for a diploma! So i am a little peeved off at the TAFE at the moment, seeing that i am a strugling student and all. They did say that they have a payment plan, but that is bull shit. The government can take the cost of the course, i’m going to be paying enough later on in taxes. The least that they can do is cover my study fees at one of there government funded schools. I think i might have to find out a loop hole or something. Don’t think i’ll find one though, but i’ll look all the same. Well i’ll leave it there.
Fight the establishment Champions!!!
