I am all signed up! My chair is reserved and my kit is on order! I am going to start Cosmetology on July 16th I am so excited I can barely contain it! The possibilities are endless! I can have my own salon in 2 years!! 2 YEARS! Not bad! I was able to get funding for all but 2000. of it. I was hoping to get it all so that it wouldn't be a bill every month added on to what we already have. So, I have to get a job too. I was so hoping to devote all of my time to school and studying but, I want this so badly that I will manage. UGH... to be so close, I just can't not go! There has been way too much sadness in my little life, I NEED this more than ever! I was so heart broken when i was told that I will have to pay $165 a month starting on the first day of school. It'll be okay, somehow, it will be, it has to be. I am looking for some scholarships to see if there is anything out there to help with this. This is not one of the careers that will allow me to get paid unemployment and as for state aide, I hear that you still have to be available to work and since I will be in school, they don't consider that as available! It'll probably be easier finding a job part time nights, because it isn't a career job that I will be looking for. I will hit all the places close to my campus and I'm sure it'll end up being (gulp) retail. It'll only be for a year, I can do it! Right now, though, it is official and I am so very excited! Brandon, the college director told me he was also hoping for me to get more of a pell grant, but, I made too much last year. I made too much? Wow! I made 21,000! That sure is a lot! The good thing is, I can apply again for next term so, if they go by this year, I should get a little more so maybe all of next term will be covered. I am not going to worry about that now. Because of the hours required in NH, if I want to get my license in any other state, I will just have to go to the state boards and get my license! Wish me luck and say a prayer! I will soon be on my way to a new career!
