Got a Scholarship!



My college called me yesterday and said a last-minute scholarship had come available, and they'd like to award it to me if I was interested.

Was I interested?  Heck yeah, I was!  Thank goodness I hadn't already started paying my tuition or bought books yet, because this scholarship will cover all of my tuition, fees, books, and supplies for the next year.  HUZZAH!!!!  Such a relief!!!

All i have to do now is attend the mandatory awards reception.  I think I can handle that.  :)

  1. Congratulations! I was starting to think good news was just a passing memory. You go, grrl! And don't forget the tradition of good news coming in threes - can't wait to see what else might be in store for you now ;o)

    And, uh, whatever mojo you worked to get that scholarship, see if you can use it to get us some rain too, 'k?

  6. This reminds me, actually--I got a scholarship my first year of law school, but they did have one condition attached. Each scholarship recipient had to write a thank-you note before the funds would be released.

    As you can imagine, I had to dig really deep to find enough gratitude to fill a Hallmark card!

    And . . . I just might have sent one seven years later, letting the folks behind the scholarship know that their scholarship made the difference between staying in law school and heading home with my tail tucked between my legs.

  7. @Deb - I did actually have to write a thank-you letter, but that's a small enough price to pay, and happily spent! :D
