Absolutely Smashingly Fabulous Good News!!!

My dear friends, I came home Tuesday night, disgusted with a difficult Cases in Finance Class, nearly accused of cheating by a fellow classmate (hilarious when you consider how poorly I'm doing in that class), just a bit down on myself. Walked through the front door to the table where my sister had sorted my mail (thank you pokecharm). A letter from the VCU School of Business was there.

"Great" I thought, "another bill or some notice telling me I've missed a class or that I'm going to have to jump through some extra hoop to get the diploma." Came upstairs and causually opened the letter....guess what - YOUR'S TRULY HAS WON A HUGE SCHOLARSHIP!!! It will cover my entire 2nd year of MBA school tuition and fee's, as well as some award money!!! I was and am over the moon!!!

I applied for this scholarship in March and having not heard back from them by now, figured I had not gotten it. The lesson I've learned here is that all my stressing over school and working so hard to do well paid off. I may not be genetically "smart" but what I lack in I.Q. I'd like to think I make up with shear sweat. For everyone who believed in me, from those early days on, thank you - I couldn't have stuck with it, without everyone's support. this money is going to go to help me do my study abroad next spring - which is fabulous because otherwise I was going to have to take out a huge loan.



Sidenote - guess who was on my plane coming back from NYC - Hilary Clinton. Wild, no? This morning I rode down to Charlotte with John Ashcroft (who smiled at me) and than to my surprise as I waited for a seat assignment for the 3:45pm flight back from CLT to DC, who was there as well....Mr. Ashcroft! Imagine my surprise...if I didn't know any better I'd say he was following me LOL.
