GUESS WHAT!!!!!!!! I just received an email informing me that I have been awarded $1500 for the Global Leaders merit scholarship!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Of course, if I get the full scholarship to Germany, I won't get the Global Leaders scholarship money, but that is fine with me! I had a dream that I got a call and someone said "I'm sorry, but you can't have the global leaders money anymore." and I said, "why not?" and then they told me I got the full scholarship and I got so excited. And then my cat jumped on me and woke me up.
There is a selection committee coming up in a couple of weeks, and I find out about the full scholarship in March. I get little butterflies in my stomach just thinking about it! However, I have been making arrangements in case I don't get it- I met with a woman who needs a babysitter for 3-year-old daughter Lily, who is quite adorable, and I should be starting babysitting with her soon. I need to finish up a couple job applications and send them in, and I'm keeping my eyes and ears open for any hidden employment options around Northampton. If I don't get the full scholarship, I'll need to start working like a powerhouse. Hmmm.
But, as Mom puts it, I'm still putting out positive energy- it got me $1500, didn't it? If it works to get me a full scholarship, I shall never doubt my mother again. Except maybe once and a while.
