I couldn't wait to post this in my Friday Fragments!
I finally heard back from the photography school this afternoon.
After I last heard from them, I had replied that I needed to apply and be approved for student aid before I could apply for a disability loan. In order to apply for student loan, I needed an official letter saying that I have been accepted into a program.
I hadn't heard from them, so I began to worry since, I can't do anything without the official acceptance. I sent them another email last week, to make sure we are all on the same page.
Finally, today, I heard back from them, and they told that student aid won't accept applications until after June 1st, so they will be in contact with me before then with official (conditional) acceptance.
I feel so much better having heard back from them, and no longer feel although this opportunity has completely disappeared.
Of course, there is still a chance that student aid and disability grant may not approve my application, but I will worry about that later. At least, for now, I can start planning to go back to school in the fall.
This also means that I won't worry myself too much about looking for a job just yet. Since it is just me here now, I can't be away all day at school and then working all evening because of my dog and my house. I have decided I won't stress out about it just yet. I know I can't stay home forever, but I'll be ok for a while.
And speaking of photos, here's a photo of Emma I took this afternoon! Don't you just love her smile?!
- I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...
