I just realized that's it's been forever since I've updated this. You know, in case anyone out there is poised in tense anticipation over the issue of whether grace gets to pay for college and find a summer job.
So here's the verdict: yes and yes. I got scholarship money from Alabama and Auburn, so I get to go to college. Probably Auburn. I'm still waiting to hear about whether or not I got in to the University of TX at Austin or Wheaton but I'm not holding my breath for either. TX State University still hasn't gotten back to me about scholarship money. Again, breathing pretty steadily.
But Auburn's a great school. And my grandparents (on my dad's side) will be there next year along with my older brother and a super cool roommate so life is good. So what if I'm not going to my dream school? Auburn is a great school. I am grateful and honored and happy. (In my dreams, I'm still in TX, but who knows? Maybe after college... Or graduate school...)
The best recent news is that Yellowstone National Park hired me as a waitress type minimum wage serf for this summer! I absolutely can't wait. I am so excited that I have to stop myself from thinking about the summer when I go to sleep so that I won't stay up too late.
That's the news and I am out of here.
