There are plenty of ways for you to pay for college without their help. There are scholarships, grants, student loans. I suggest going to see an admissions and finacial aid councelor at your prefered school. They also have dorms and work study. You can live and learn and work on campus and you would be completley self sufficient. I know what you mean by needing your animals around you as they are your friends and part of your family. Im blessed to have a great human and animal family. Im 22 and married. My family has owned horses, cattle dogs and such since before I was born they know how much the animals mean to me. Just keep thinking that once you get out of their house, into college and having a job then you can buy a horse, buy more animals to your hearts content. I know that may be easier said than done in this days economy but just remember, only the rocks last forever. You have total control over your fate.
    Problem is Dog grooming school isn't like collage. There isn't dorms and most scholarships and grants don't apply. I guess you would call it tec school? I have looked into several and there all at least 2 hours away and would cost well over $10,000 + the cost of living.

    I do get what your saying though. :)

    There isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank God for my dog. He is what keeps me going.

    FB is evil. I know it is. I've deactavated my acount several times trying to get my self off, then I don't talk to people for a long time and end up getting back on. I've been getting on it less and less laitly, so that's good.

    I live in the woods, I'm actualy 20 minutes from and town, and an hour from ocala. So other than walmart there isn't any thing to do around here but ride. We have some really amazing riding trails. Unfortunitly no one rents out horses around here. There is one place at the end of my road but the lady that runs it doesn't like us. (her dog bit my brother, she has already gone to court over that dog and he is saposed to stay in a fence. He didn't break skin so we had no proof so we didn't do any thing about it.)

    I actualy work for 2 rescues but the one is no longer rescuing because of money. The other I don't really work for. I just train a few of the dogs. They havent needed me in a few months though.

    The churches in the area arn't really that active. I've been in and out of several the past few months. No one there my age. Back when I would go to youth groups I had a lot of problems with the kids. They don't want to hang out with the horse girl. :/ I don't really care about fancy cloths and makeup so I guess I just don't fit in. I always got along with the adults. I've moved away from those churches though.

    In to weeks though I'll be going to a Jack Russell Trial! I can't wait. I've missed the past few. I love watching the dogs run, dig, and track. The rats are funny 2. They like to taunt the dogs.

    I have been going on walks a lot laitly 2. Hopefully it will help me loose weight.

    I try not to be so negative. I'm usualy a happy person, just a lot of stuff in a short amount of time I guess.

    Thanks for reading all that!
    First of all, I think walking dog for long time is definitely a very healthy habit for both of you.

    I'd subscribe on several dog forums and look if you have any other dog lovers close to you. It's much easier to hang out with someone when you have common hobby!

    I WAS a member of 2 dog forums. But I'm banned from the sister site to this one. There like a cult over there. I didn't agree with them so they band me.

    So far I haven't found any one near me. Dog forums arn't as popular as horse forums sadly

    Lol I guess that would be a little hard, have you ever considered doing two majors? Do you want to stay in the same area you are now or are you willing to move. You never know, you could find a great college/tech school that has what your looking for that may provide everything you need. You may even find out you like other majors too. There are alot of people I know that have two or more majors!

    It Gets Better!!!! I guarantee it. I think you need to get your diploma. If mama won't help go to the local school and ask them how to go about getting your GED. You can volunteer at the local vets office or the animal shelter. Also try the nearest stable asking to help out. I would love it if someone helped me with my horses.
    I know what you are going through, you have to make a commitment to yourself to make things better.
    It does get better!!!

    I have no problem with moving. One of the dog grooming school's I was looking at is in SC. I still want to be a photographer as well, but there isn't enough money in that. I also would like to get into dog training. There is a Photography school in FL but I couldn't afford it in a zillion years!

    I saw this and I thought of you



    I know only to well how hard it is, but reading between the lines, you really have to learn to like and value yourself for what you are, that is a huge thing to learn, and you have to work at it every day.

    Then you have to decide what you have power over, and what you can change about your situation, and start making those changes one thing at a time.

    The things that you can't change at the moment, then accept them for the annoyances they are at the moment, while knowing that you can deal with them later.

    No specific advice here, but keep fighting

    Sending major hugs your way.

    The good thing about the bottom is you have no way to go but up. Just go for it.. take risks, you have nothing to lose.

    When my friends are on "Life is so hard", my retort is "..compared to what?"

    If friends or someone to talk to is what you lack, come to the forum. We care about you. Message me if you ever want to talk, you could even call me.

    <3 we're here for you

    Don't let this get you down too much, I am almost 21 and I have never been asked out either. You will find someone great someday that respects you and your morals, don't rush it/

    Glad to hear you are taking walks with your doggy. It's a great hobby.

    That really sucks about grooming school. I firmly believe that your post high school education should be completely about doing what you love and turning it into a job you love. I'm so sorry that your dad doesn't see it that way, and is against the groomer thing and you getting a job. But one suggestion I do have is perhaps looking at fastweb.com and scholarship.com for scholarships for trade/tech schools. I believe that those will transfer over.

    Good luck with everything, and I hope it gets better for you soon. (hugs)
