Let me start off by apologizing for not writing in the past couple days. I have no good excuse except that I was tired and didn't really have the time.
Secondly, that exclamation point is for somebody to let them know I am paying attention, and to maybe get on their nerves just a little bit. :)
The real story for today, however, is about an awesome, amazing, wonderful surprise I received.
A letter arrived at my parent's house today from my institution of higher learning. (Yes, I am still in school even as I work 40 hour weeks)
The letter informed me (through my mother who read it) I had been awarded a scholarship for the Spring semester. Now, instead of having $2,500 in loans, I only have $415.
How exciting is that!!! So I am little less poor than I started out the day.
