I've just been looking at the Moonridge site, and I'm definitely left with mixed feelings.  On the one hand, I'm all full of bubbles & joy at our wonderful fandom and all of the offerings, but on the other, I'm wishing I wasn't so dang *poor*, and that I could get my hands on some of the wonderfuls!  On top of that, I'm feeling vaguely guilty for not donating anything myself, monetarily or story-wise.  But I just can't imagine anyone paying actual money for my stories, and I can't think of anything else I'd donate.  Sigh.

In other news, my college trip yesterday went great, and I will no longer be forced to rein in my anger at my dad when he makes comments like, "I'd really love for you to be able to go to college," or "I just don't know how we're going to be able to afford college for you, honey."  These just piss me off because I'm the one who's been doing all the work college-wise since DAY ONE, and all he does is occasionally make a negative remark and then put it out of his mind.  But rant aside, I won't have to worry about that anymore since we visited the Financial Aid office and my dad is now finally convinced that yes, I *am* going to college.  I'm getting a pretty good aid package, so yay- and weight-off-my-shoulders-ness have been ensuing.

It is gloomy, but not raining, so for that: \o/

Done chatting at you for now.  Thank god for LJ, where I can rant incoherently all I want, at people who won't give me the eye afterwards. :D

*smooches to all*

If you want college *and* can attain college, this is a great thing. \o/ for the weight-off-shoulders thing. :-)

Thank you! Yeah, it's definitely a relief to know that most of my expenses will be taken care of. :D

Yay's for the college-thing! Is this for the upcoming fall? Which major do you have in mind?

It Can Be Done! I hunted for scholarships and grants constantly and managed to pay practically all of my tuition and a part of board with them. Don't let anyone put the No's in your head.

Re: *high five paw print*

Yay! ♥

Go you! You'll probably need to get a part time job when you start college, but you could possibly work on campus or college towns are used to dealing with student schedules.

Thank you! They're actually setting me up with a work-study job, so woohoo!

Good to hear you're sorting it all out, I'm sure it's all good for the soul (she said with a roll of the eyes). Gosh golly, it was all so easy back in my day (snerk), I don't know how I'd have managed if I'd had to cope the way you are. You're a star.

LOL! Thank god, most of the really hard work is over. There are only a few things I have left to apply for/fill out/ make my parents sign. *g*

The hardest part of attaining your goals is the negativity that people try to heap on you. Glad you are not letting it get to you and taking the steps to go to school.

For me I always tell everyone what wonderful experiences I have especially when I get a good grade that usually shuts up the negative comments. LOL.

Go You!! Have fun and study hard. We are all rooting for you!

Thank you! I can't wait till next year, and all this support is frankly overwhelming. ILU all!
