money is overrated, anyway

so it's becoming doubtful whether I'll be going back to school this fall... :[ I really hate that, but my only alternative is finding some way to pay $3000 in the next month. God knows I can't borrow it from my parents, and taking out any more loans frankly scares me, with as much debt as I'm already in. So either $3000 will miraculously make its way into my pocket in the next few weeks, or I'll be taking the semester (year?) off to work and volunteer at the wildlife center. It really wouldn't be the end of the world, since I started college a year ahead anyway, so I'd be the age of a normal sophomore if I wait until next year, I just hate the idea of taking a whole YEAR off. I could at least transfer to JMU, the public school about half an hour away from where I go now which would be about a quarter of the cost, but it's so huge, and I really love the atmosphere of my school. This whole situation just sucks. 

on a more optimistic note... 
I woke up this morning to find my color me happy package out in the mail and a headband I got on discount from aimee's etsy, in addition to a lovely letter from mariella

then I had a stop at the library where I found all these lovely books. 
so I think I have a book problem. Once I pick up one, it looks so lonely I have to get another.... and then they just start multiplying. It's rather strange, really. 
I can't wait to read them all. I've heard wonderful things about Jonathan Safran Foen's book, and from what I saw flipping through it it looks amazing. :]


  1. Glad you liked my letter. I already got yours, and loved it too. :)

  2. (: i hope everything works out for you!

  3. thanks for entering my giveaway :)

    also I love books, and the library,I"m pretty broke too so it's basically my favourite place in the world. Hopefully they are all wonderful, you should post reviews when you read them.

    paying for school is crappy, but at least you have a logical intelligent back up plan. I do hope you're able to find the money to pay for it though, maybe take on an extra part time job? I hope that whatever works out is for the best.

    your blog is adorable, thanks for following me, I"m going to return the favour :)

  4. I hope everything works out. Gods plan for you will always work out for the best, even if you don't understand them. He makes all things work together for the good of those who love Him!

    ps: your new blog design is very cute!

  5. Laura, thanks for the comment!

    I danced with Golden Harp Irish Dance company. In Connecticut. I really have cut down on dance though, schedule wise it was a LOT of commitment. (I stopped competetions like...3 years ago. THAT is a HUUUGE life eater!)

    This year I was only doing 1 class and in the fall I haven't decided if I can fit even that. I just have a lot of stuff going on...sadness. :(

    But I absolutely LOVED all 11 years of it.

  6. yes! extremely loud & incredible close is such a neat book! so many secrets in the pages : )

  7. love the headband. and I do the same thing at the libary. Get way too many and think I will actually be able to read them all before they are due back. lol hope you had a great weekend. :)

  8. oh yes... book love. i can so relate... must buy more shelves. and walls for more shelves...
