    Default Guess What!

    Remember how I was debating whether or not to go back to school? And I finally qualify for grants and such?
    Well... I went to register for classes today (they were having trouble because lots of classes are full already... but I didn't have a choice about when I could register cause I'm considered a "new" student) and I wanted to ask them about my FAFSA. Apparently the school changed my gross income and I lost over half of my pell grant amount. I was really upset because I wasn't going to have enough to cover the tuition completely (plus there would be no money for books and such). Well I talked to them about it and then they realized that I will qualify for the SMART grant... which I didn't think I qualified for and I guess they weren't paying attention to it too well. Well, that added another $4000 to my school fund! Which means I'm going to get more now than I thought I was going to get originally! My husband said that it must be meant to be (me going to college, that is) because things worked out the way they did.
    I'm still super worried about how all the bills are going to be paid... but hopefully I will get something figured out by the time school starts.


    Hehe... another interesting tidbit: When I walked into the advisor's office, I had my husband with me. She thought he was my dad!!!
    Needless to say, I am going to be teasing him about that one for awhile.

    Aww... congrats!!! Follow the school path, seriouslY! It's the only way... I work, and working at my shitty job made me want to go to school even more than what I have originally... Only a summer job and that's it... I'm defiantly in all support of school!!! & congrats on getting money for school, it's really expensive and stuff in the longrun... seriously, go for it and don't give up, it will be totally worth it in the end!!!

    I know... I know... but it still just scares the hell out of me. I'm going to lose my health insurance the second I go part time. And I calculated things out... if I work 25 hours a week, then after I pay the bills I'm left with about $25 a week to pay for food and gas! Not good...
    I'm still planning on going though and a least trying to do it. Once I've been trying it for awhile, then I can decide if changes need to be made somewhere.
