    Well, I'll be going to college soon to study a couple of courses there. My parents were happy about it a month ago...but now all they do is try and talk me out of it because of the money issue. They know how badly I was bullied in school, and how I've been looking forward to leaving it finally and going into something specialised...but now it's "It's too much money, if you want to go you can pay for all the money yourself". *******s.

    I wouldn't really mind paying for it myself, but it's just the way how they are acting hypocritical and selfish, they know I've wanted this, but giving £2 to me a day is obviously too much for my happiness.

    It's been pissing me off. I've been trying to look for a job, but there seem to be none at all. Thing is: They don't have to give me money (I don't even get money for food =| ) if I go to school.

    What do you think I should do? Please no rude ****, I feel as crappy as it is.

    Are you entitled to EMA?

    Keep looking for a job, one will turn up soon enough.

    In the meantime, talk to them on a level, tell them your situation and how you're feeling.

    Yeah but they keep on saying "if you stay on at school, you won't need to spend your EMA on busfairs" :/

    Aww, I feel your pain. Try to convince them that this is the only thing you feel is worth doing right now. That you're going to go with our without their help, and you'd appreciate it if they could support your decision.
    If you're really passionate about doing these courses and going on to uni, then you'll find a way. Just hang in there and hit the streets looking for a job.

    Good luck. =)
