Living the Chaotic Life

Just wanted to say that I am sorry about not being around much.. things have been complete chaos around here all summer; and I try not to bore you all with all of my hardships and frustrations!  However, it is Life, & Life does come with all of these things; so, I am sure that you could relate!

Since my last Blog, So Close, Yet, So far Away, I have been completing Scholarship applications in hopes that I will get some help finishing up my degree program.  I would hate to know that I got this far and had to wait to come up with all that money to complete a few classes.

My current class is Stomping My Butt (lol).. wow, it is SO unbelievably hard; but it is my last week (Thank God); however, I did contact my adviser to ask for a break before my next class.  With the kids going back to school and all it would be nice to have a week off just to rest, get the house intact, and try to get my Office program re-installed (another story for another day, lol).

BUT... By the time my instructor got back to me.. another issue had occurred and therefor, I requested 2 weeks because this is what I see on my laptop screen now (UGH)...

Life has been CRAZY.. without a doubt, but I am trying to remind myself every time a new problem comes up, that 'Good things come to those who wait!'  I sure hope so because I have been waiting for quite a bit now; and hoping that good things start to flow my way SOON!

Anyways.. I just wanted you all to know that I haven't forgotten about 'Life'.. Just been experiencing the chaotic part of it lately.

I hope that you all are having a great day & know that happier thoughts are soon to come!! :)

So close, yet so far away

So.. I've been going to school 2010 And I'm  only four classes away from my degree. Only to find out I will not have enough money to pay for all of my remaining classes.
Trying to get a degree and get a better job... only to be shot down as I'm approaching the end!
The whole point and getting loans and grants is because not many people  have that kind of money to pay out of pocket for classes, at least I don't. 
My financial advisor assured me that there are grants and/or scholarships that I could apply for that can help me finish this journey, but there could be some out of pocket costs before I get done.. ugh.  This sucks!
For now... I'm hoping that things will go in my favor and I can finish a huge goal that I set for myself! However,  I do worry that with my luck they won't. 
Being so close only to get knocked down would be such a huge disappointment in life.
