What in the world?

I’m going to be 40 soon and I feel like I need some Acneticin! I’ve had more acne in the last 10 years than I ever remember having as a teenager. Hmph. Irritating really!

I slept off and on all day yesterday. I think it’s exactly what I needed. I feel much better today and will be jumping in the shower here in a few to get ready for the day.

I don’t know how long it takes for grades to be posted, but I’m waiting anxiously to find out how I did on my paper. This week in one class is all about time management and how to balance everything. I will definitely be able to use this week’s information. I have been feeling very overwhelmed this past week and I’m hoping this class will help me balance all of that.

My tuition reimbursement through work has been approved, as long as I keep a “C” average in my classes, I’ll get up to $2,000 for my schooling. This is good because I’ll be paying about $1,400 out of pocket for my first year. I am disappointed the federal loans I got are not covering the entire year, but whatev.

I was talking to one of our Majors who is also going to school this year and his education is being funded 100%. Since he makes double (or more) what I make in a year, the only thing I can think of is that he’s married and has four children. I jokingly told the people at work, I’m going to go out and have a kid so I can get the rest of it funded. And then I realized I can’t do that. Ah well. Life goes on and I’ll pay for my part of the education.

I haven’t been to a GA meeting this week or last and I’m feeling it. I’m definitely going to the meeting tonight at 7pm. It will balance me out a little more emotionally.

Now to get ready for work and to face the day. I sure hope there is not a lot of crap on my desk waiting on me.

Until next time…

    Okay what is the deal with adult acne??? Lately, I have been breaking out like a crazy woman and I never had acne in high school at all!

    Hilly, I know, right?!? I remember having acne, but I don’t remember it being this often or this consistent!

    My guess is that his cost of attendance is lower than yours. The annual limit for Stafford loans varies based on your grade level. Because you are a first year student, your annual limit is quite low, even though you are an independent student (the current annual limit is $9500 for your grade level). With a school that has a high COA, it is possible to exceed your available federal loan funds. Keep in mind too that loan funds are based on the academic, not calendar, year but your tuition reimbursement is most likely based on the calendar year. (The academic year runs from July 1 to June 30.) Tuition reimbursement will be based on the start date of your close. Here is a chart with more information about annual/aggregate loan limits. http://www.finaid.org/loans/studentloan.phtml I’ve worked in student lending for 7 years and write courses on the subject, so I know a thing or two. :)
