Patience is a Virtue

On Monday I recieved a letter in the mail from the financial aid department at my school. They let me know that I did, indeed, receive a grant this year. That, I was happy about. I read on to find out that I am getting almost a thousand dollars less this year than I got last year, which really freaked me out. I instantly began stressing. I have so much on my plate already, it's hard even thinking about trying to come up with more money to pay for school. I've never taken out a loan before, and have done everything I had to in order to not incur debt while in college. Nanny offered to give me a monthly 'allowance' to help with the $1000 that I'd be missing from the grant. I hate asking her for money, but I didn't have to ask, she just offered. I couldn't really refuse at the time, I didn't know of any other offers. Until today. I got a letter in the mail from my school. I let out a huge sigh before I opened it, because I was sure it was going to be the bill for the tuition. BUT IT WASN'T. It was a letter offering me a scholarship from the art & design program. And guess for how much? That's right...$1000! Crazy, huh? But I am very blessed for this to come my way, and now I can stop stressing so much! Good things truly do come to those who wait :)

It's weird how those things end up balancing out in the end, isn't it? Glad you don't have to worry too much about the financial side of things for now - it's the last thing you need while you're studying!
