Student Mama Triumph!!!

In addition to the grant funding I get because I'm going to teach EBD kids, I just found out this morning that my university is giving me $2400/quarter because I am a single parent with no income.

This means NO LOANS AT ALL next year!

I am so happy. I can't believe it.

Whooooooooooooo Hooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That must feel so good!

I am only slightly if you told me your application for financial aid did not take you almost a week to fill out with numerous faxes to the school and an average of 10 phone calls a day I might get really really jealous (I swear I filled out everything exactly like I was told and I still had to do that!)

congratulations! that is so exciting!

it great that the little things make us happy!
wow that is the coolest thing. congratulations!!! i know how hard that is. the forms are so confusing. congratulations again maybe ill ask you how to do it next time.
Hey Brussel, before you get too jealous, I will share that my current student loan amount is $42,000.00 (the last 2 years of grad school plus 10K for undergrad)

So....the free money is a big help, as the last thing I want to do is pile on more to those loans.
