So far, no meeting on Italy. But I did go to one about a scholarship for study abroad. It is the Gilman Scholarship. According to the meeting today, I can earn between $500 and $5,000. If I earn the $5,000, that would cover my next payment, my airfare and some of my expenses overseas. It would be such a blessing. However, if I can win the $500, it would help. I need to fill out an application and write two essays by March 1st (if I remember the date correctly). If I won, I also need to do a "follow up" project when I return from Study abroad.
Also, my mother and I found another great possibility of a direct flight to and from Italy.
I have until March 31st to make my $2,600 and honestly, I am scared I won't make it. I am working a job while at college but am only able to work 6 hours a week, which doesn't add up to much. Even if I put every cent to Italy, it wouldn't be possible. I need to find a way to do this.
I am very sorry for such a long time between posts. School has gotten pretty intense. I am in an elementary school from 7am to 4pm Mondays and Wednesdays, in a Pre-school on Fridays, have classes all day Tuesday and Thursday, work afternoons and then do homework at night. This past weekend I did homework from 10 am to 10 pm on Saturday and from 9 am to 4pm on Sunday. Don't worry, I am not complaining. I love being busy and hate sitting still. So this is a good thing...as long as I have time to get everything done. Thats the life of a Junior in college.
I hope everyone is doing well.
