-I'm back on insurance. It best be permanent this time.

-I may actually be able to get financial aid this term. It will be the last term I'll get it -- until I get into a program. But since I didn't get it last spring, I just may get it now. This will be an unbelievable financial help.

-Unfortunately, the classes I want are all full now after the fighting to get stuff together. I was told to go the first day anyway and see if we get a no show or drops the first week. I will also write to the teachers and see what they can do, if anything, to get me in.

-I am pleased with a lot of things in my personal life and frustrated with others. Working on clearing that up and making decisions. But I'm more pleased than not, so that's me being ahead of the game, no?

-I have been letting things rattle me at the job that normally wouldn't. I'm realizing it's because in my heart, I'm gone already. I am just. Not. There. I'm already looking to next summer and beginning the teaching program. But I can't let that stop my from doing the day to day things and hanging in there to finish what I need to so that I can get INTO the program.

-I have not been great with the budget thing, but I'm trying to just reign myself back in rather than beat myself up and cause more comfort spending. I'll get there.

-I am sending good thoughts to those of you on my list who are needing it. And even those who don't. I really do think of you when I'm not here. Be well!

I am so happy to hear about the insurance and the possibility of financial aid. That's great! I hope you can get into the classes you need. Here's hoping for some no shows!

You are so right about the not-beating-oneself-up thing. That is so much wasted energy, but it's hard not to do it.

*hugs*

{{hugs}} Yep. Here's hoping the insurance sticks. I'm hoping things turn out well with the classes, too.

Yay!!!! 'Sounds like the ruminating and soul-searching are paying off, hon. :) Hang in there with work - it's food and housing and clothes until something better comes along. You are a strong, wise woman and I know you will find new and exciting paths ahead. Love you!!! <3!

Yeah, we'll see how it goes. I'm trying to keep the future in mind and trying to remind myself it's leading somewhere.

I'm thinking high school English. I think it would be a good fit.
