Daniela: First, always put it this way: only approximately two months to go before I'm free!!! It may seem like a long time from now, but try to look at it at a different angle and consider how with each day passing by, you're closer to your summer break. You've survived almost 7 months of school, what is two more months, right? It's just a little bit of work left until you have another 2-3 months of doing whatever you want.
Anna: You know what helps when surviving these types of things? A countdown. Just count the days and remind yourself that two months isn't that long! Another way is to get focused. Your motivation isn't just to pass or get out of school. Your motivation is to get a good grade so you can say all that suffering didn't go to waste. Drink some coffee and crack a book open! Get study-centered, but also don't forget to socialize once in a while.
"I was suppose to join a school trip out of the country and I already paid most of the fees (except for the ticket) and I just found out that there are some problems regarding my visa and I know it's not my fault but I just feel really guilty because it's an expensive trip and I feel like my money just went to waste and I also feel sad because wow I just missed an amazing opportunity how do I cope with these feelings? What can I do now?"
Daniela: Well, that's that. Try to see if those fees are still refundable, if not, then I'm sorry, it's just not meant to be. Maybe it's sign that it's not yet the time for this. As for the fees, it's just money. Don't worry too much about it. Who knows? Maybe there's a list of better opportunities out there that will be coming your way.
Anna: You can't reverse what just had happen so there's no use in feeling sad about it. Well, give yourself an amount of time to mourn, like let's say three days or less. After three days, slap yourself on the face and get out of that funk. If you feel really guilty about losing the money, find ways to pay it back like selling your clothes online. About missing a great opportunity, understand that there will always be another school trip and you could always go to wherever you were supposed to go another time. What you can do now is make sure that this won't happen again because nothing is more like a slap across the face than a repeated mistake.
