I'm honored

Hi everyone who is a blogger. Friday April 9TH, 2010 I got some news that made me a happy camper. I got a call from the principal Ms. Linda Correnti who is the principal of Access GED which is the school I attend from September of 2008 to June of 2009. As I said in my past blog entries I always wanted my GED diploma that way I could be part of the graduation that Access has once a year for the people who passed the GED test. As you know I didn't pass the GED test I took in June of 2009 which was sad for me because I really wanted to be in the graduation. I was upset about not passing in June but I knew I had to keep trying. In October of 2009 before my 22ND birthday I printed out an application to take the test again which was very easy to find online. I got a card 3 weeks later and next thing you know I'm studying like crazy to take the math part of the GED test. Ms. Linda called my home and I was shocked to hear from her. I didn't pick up because I was taking a nap and I didn't hear my house phone ring. It was my mom who woke me up telling me that I have an important message from my former school. I was like, "are you serious?" and my mom said, "yes I'm serious". So I got out bed to listen to the message Ms. Linda left for me. She wanted me to call her back so we could talk about graduation. In the back of my mind I was screaming for joy because I always wanted to be part of the graduation. As soon as I was done I looked for this bright green card that I got from Access reminding me that a new school year was starting and I was suppost to come back. As nice as if would of been to attend a other year of Access my 22ND birthday was coming and I had to respect the rule that only a person 21 and under could attend. I called up Ms. Linda and she was happy to hear from me because I haven't spoken to her since September when I had to tell her I wasn't returning to Access. I told her my scores and Ms. Linda was thrilled that I passed math. She told me that she was going to send me something in the mail soon with more details about graduation. I look forward to getting it in the mail and like the title of my post said I'm honored.

What to do with my life?!?!?!?!?!?

Hello to all that blog. For today's post I'm going to write about an issue I have. As you all know from a post entitled I'm so freaking happy I received my GED diploma on Monday December 14TH, 2009. Besides from me saying I can finally plan for the future it's been a little over three months since I got my diploma and I still have no idea what I want to do with my life. At first I tried to look for a job but that blew up in my face and me finding a job has ended up in failure to find one. I know that since I now have a GED diploma I can go to college if I wanted. The problem is every time I get online to those college websites I get so nervous that I log off. Plus I heard that college is very expensive and my older sister Jessica told me that if I apply for financial aid I would have to pay $100.00 dollars for the application. I wonder if there is a way for me to apply for financial aid without paying for it? I would like to do something with my life but I have no clue what to do. If any of my former teachers are reading this post please tell me what do you think I should do? Please help a young lady that wants to do something with her life but is undecided. In other words I need HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
