BAD NEWS Posted on 07-27-2004

Well, it looks liks I will not be at HU this fall . My parents have officially showed their a$$, and at the last minute tell me that they don't have the money right now. Hmmm..... now I would believe this if they weren't spending money on this and that (shady business) :evil: . Anyway, I will be their next year, my pastor in Indiana (I'm in FLA now), said he would get the money together and pay my full tuition next yr. and up until I graduate . For now, I'm moving out of my ****-donor's house (Ha!) and moving back with my grandma (in IN). Which is were I should've stayed two years ago if I knew this would happen. I'll be going to a college their, just so I don't get too behind........As of right now I am working on loans so there is a slight (and I do mean slight) chance that I might get to go to HU. We'll see :wink: .

So my parents and I drove up to Howard today, and THANK GOD it turned out to be a pretty successful day. First place we went was to RES. LIFE. I spoke with Mr. Harris(just in case you wanted to know for your own personal use) and he placed me in a dorm within MINUTES! Seriously...It's not the dorm that I would have probably chosen for myself, but HEY, "BEGGARS CAN'T BE CHOOSERS" RIGHT? I've been placed in Meridian which is about 9 blocks from campus...I'm going to try to get switched, but at least now I have a foot in the door compared to before when I was S.O.L. ya know! We also went to the fin. aid office and I learned about a Donor Scholarship. Not really sure about all the info concerning it, but I met a girl who is a Senior there and she told me to make sure I filled it out and turned it in that day. Also a woman who works in the department said is on a first come first serve, need basis. So I filled it out, couldn't hurt right? I really hope that you are coming this semester, b/c I know how it feels to be in the situation. I cried and I prayed and GOD did bring me through it. I feel more at ease now. Good luck with everything, and I'm still here to rant and rave to if necessary? Oh one more thing, have you made a decision to attend or not?
That is such a blessing. Im soooo happy for you! :wink:

I'm not going. I got into a really good school here though, just so I could start somewhere. My tuition is paid for and I got and apartment on campus which is nice. I got a one bedroom apt. so I'm not sharing with anybody. So, I'm looking at it like things happen for a reason. HU is just in the future not the present.

God works in mysterious ways so don't sweat it. Sounds to me like you'll be fine I hope everything works out, whether you end up at Howard eventually or not I'm sure you will be fine. Just think, somebody didn't eat tonight so it could always be worse, but anyway good luck I wish you much success and God's protection.
