AVID has taught me a lot! :D
Get scholarships. EVEN IF you don't meet the criteria, sign-up anyway. If, at the end of their giving period or whatever you want to call it, they have extra money, then they divide it among the rest of the people who have applied. So, apply to everyone you can, if you can and all that.

I'm looking at the Alexander Rutherford Scholarship as I can get some money. Even if it is just a few hundred dollars, it's better than nothing.

I'm looking into that right now. I hope I can find something that I can apply for.

Edit: I'm watching Big Bang Theory and I have the best idea for a GIF that I can make. I need to download the episode and cut out the GIF in it. Then I am going to add text to it and save it. :D

If our badly flawed US system can pull it off, I'd imagine Canada can too.

Team Fail, you position is definitely worse than mine...

I'm not exactly able to advise you on scholarship matters, but best of luck to whatever you manage.

It's more than likely I'll at least find something that I can go for. I just have to know where to look.

Thanks. I've had people tell me to go to the parents, but with an idiot father and a broke mother, that's an option I just don't have.


I've been contemplating over writing a blog entry about what's been happening with me lately. It'd also explain why I joined here in the first place.

I think that a blog explaining that would be pretty neat if you wanted to write it up. Haha. Or maybe I'm just weird to think people are interesting... Haha either way... I don't really care.

Haha. It'd be a bit long, but it'd be an interesting read. I might start on it tomorrow.

Unfortunately some states (if not all) cut education loans/ funds from students this year. My boyfriend was lucky in that he only had to wait a while extra to receive his student loan, although he had to put the deposit for classes/ dorm on credit card before he received it. Everything is sorted now.. but I could just imagine how disastrous it would be for someone without credit. I wonder if you can apply for a separate bank account without having to have your mom/parents cosign.. or invest in a simple $25 or so locked moneybox/safe that you can hide out in the garden/dig up in your yard Where you can sneak cash in.. @_@ I'm always paranoid about that kind of stuff so I would invest in a personal safe. For example.. I have a fireproof/waterproof safe that I store some of my important data in (burned DVDs, external HDD, some portable usbs)

Team Fail, I hope you can try to find some more bursaries and other ways to make your way into school. Either way I wish you all the best; and if you have to take a couple years off to work and save again, please don't feel disheartened. I feel like as long as you have ambition and a willingness to work towards it, you'll reach your personal goals :3 I know it's not much but I'll be rooting for you and you have my kindest regards.

Thank you. That means a lot. I'm going to have to make magic happen but I'm staying optimistic about this. Plus, if I get a bit of debt, I can get a good job with the education I got and pay off that debt. The scholarships and bursaries will be a really big help too.

I think I'll write that blog post in time with my 4000th post, seeing as I'm not too far away from that number.

Referring to the Unova's Autumn Festival, right? It was a surprise that there can be multiple winners back then!

(I seem to be liking these smilies )

Mix up? I wonder what you are referring to? I forgot stuff pretty quickly.

Well, all the better Consider that there was an extra winner... Ahahahaha XD

You know, people around here are really nice, and perhaps for a very good reason!

Mass conversations in the IRC? Hmm... I might actually like that.

Or, if you're lucky, win it in a contest. I hope there's something coming up in the pipeline!

Haha. Blog. That's something that I haven't done in a good while. I think it would be interesting to start one again. So... I might donate or something in the near future :D! I'd have a lot of things to write about.. >.<.

I would like to blog, but my life isn't nearly interesting enough to do so, I should totally give it a try again but I generally find myself getting bored of it pretty fast.
