So, it's been a while, but here are some updates since my last post.

I have studied French 6 times...not doing so good with this resolution!

I have exercised 12 times... not great either!

I have read 2 books, The Secret Garden & Reading Lolita in Tehran, and am almost finished with my 3rd book, The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid-VERY funny!

And I have eaten 5 servings of fruits and veggies 43 days.

I think I should just stop making resolutions because I am not good at keeping them (as is evident from the info above!)

Ok, onto my grad school info.

I have applied for housing, but I have not heard back yet.

I have applied for 4 scholarships, but I have not heard back from any of them.


I have heard back from you all! My sister has had me babysit a few times, my brother has had me coming over to his house to clean once a week, I have done a painting for my cousin (I have a picture of the painting below) and have a few more people interested in having me paint something for them, and I have taken some of my, my parents & my brother's old books, magazines, movies and cds we no longer want to Half Price Books. You all have turned me into a nanny, a maid, a painter and a recycler and with your help I have earned about $440!! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!! It will definitely be a big help =)

And again, if anyone is interested in having me put together a scrapbook for you, painting a picture, tutoring Spanish, cleaning for you, dog sitting, or pretty much anything else you could think of, or if you want to give me any old books, magazines, cds or dvds you no longer want, I will be more than willing to do that for you! Thanks again for your help and I will keep you updated on how much money you all contribute to my college fund and how much scholarship I receive. (and I will try to do better with my resolutions =P)
