So anyway. My point is that I go to school, but see things quite differently than many students working on their 4-year undergrad degrees due to plain old life.
The other night I was texting my site developer (aka Jules) and she thought I was smart and took the summer off like I said I was going to do. I explained to her how I decided to take a summer course because it would help me get more scholarship money to pay for my Spring class completely, plus my textbooks. I was just chatting it up (well, texting it up) and she sends a text about how whatever I texted was "so so funny" and later on said she laughed so hard she was rolling on the floor...I think literally. So I went back and reread what I sent to her and realized that my simple logic was quite a funny comment and I think you might get a kick out my late night, crazy student philosophy:

total educational prostitution. will learn for money.

I would not be able to do it without their generosity and confidence that I will make a contribution to society because of their monetary gifts. And I really do love to learn. I am happy when I am learning and being able to apply the newly gained knowledge. It isn't just school learning either. Learning about the blog world and how to get a blog running, noticed, fresh, fun, and fabulous has been a super adventure so far. I am having a lot of fun with this. just in case you couldn't tell.
