Well I started my Bachelor of Business (Accounting) last Monday... my second go around at university since abandoning my Bachelor of Science (Maths & Stats, Computer Science) having lost interest in the Computer Science section of the course and no idea what to replace it with.

I'm very anxious though... worried I might not be able to keep up with all the reading needed, especially when I appearantly still have to do Work for the Dole (WftD) until Centrelink approves my Youth Allowance claim and gets rid of my current Newstart Allowance status and it's related activites (that being WftD). Now I was getting rather into the WftD activity having been working there for about 7 weeks now, but I started it believing that as soon as my FULL TIME study started, that I could end the activity and only worry about my BBus(Acc)... however no... it seems that is not the case. Hence the weekend before my study started I made a claim for Youth Allowance and am waiting for it to override my Newstart to be 100% certain I have no cocerns any requirements required to do WftD.

So now I'm concerned and stressed as Centrelink doesn't show anything to say how long I'll be waiting for my claim to settle, meaning technically I still have to go to WftD which is a big inconvinence as I need as much time as possible for my study- so don't want to go to WftD (and feel I shouldn't need to) but feel I have to, in fear of lossing welfare money which means losing bill money which I need desperately after spending a lot for my textbooks!

I'm having a really rocky start to this and I'm on my edge... I hope I get just get past this, refocus on purely getting through this study and none of this confusing Centrelink/JSA/WftD bullshit.

However I dread that I'm still going to be considered a job seeker (Newstart Allowance), rather than a student (Youth Allowance) for another week... possibly two... which I fear will really fuck with my study focus. GAHHH, why does the claim process have to take so long?
