Graduating Is The Pits

I’m on the campus planning committee, and at an event I was hosting, I traded T-shirts with a girl who requested a different size. Literally gave her the shirt off my back. I don’t think she saw me, but when I turned around, she was sniffing the pits. Gr8. I can finally share this news because it went live: I GOT A SCHOLARSHIP AND AM FEATURED ON THE FABULOUSLY HELPFUL AND WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE ED2010!!!! I’m not even going to humor the Internet with fake humility here. “What? Who, me? I won?? Stop it, you!” I’m a broke betch in NYC. I was going to get that scholarship if I had to hack, drag, and drop it out of another poor (literally) intern’s inbox.

We did it!! (Well, Kyle did it). As many of you know from my previous posts, my boyfriend Kyle has been struggling to get into University because his Dyslexia and Autism have stopped him getting a C in his English exam. Despite this, he managed to get 3 A grades in his Forensic Science course, and he got a B in Maths, and this has meant that finally he’s been excepted into University!! I’m beyond proud of him 🙂 Sorry this is such a short post, but I just had to share this with you all! He’s been through so much and finally people are realising how awesome he truly is 🙂 Thanks for reading!
