Gah. I understand the necessity of it, but I wish so badly that it weren't such a problem. I hate feeling like I cannot afford school, food, a home. The necessities of life. It is something that greatly distresses me. I wish I could just send an e-mail to Bill Gates and say "Hey, Mr. Gates! I am wondering if you could spot me just until I'm able to finish school. I work hard, apply for scholarships, and busted my butt before coming down to school, but I sort of experienced some health problems that really hurt me financially and are still doing so. Heck, I can't even get proper treatment for them because I can't afford it....So, if you aren't too busy, and it's not too much trouble for you, then maybe you could give me a hand. I would appreciate it an awful lot. Thanks so much for your consideration and time, Mr. Gates. Sincerely, Jessica"....-Sigh- We'll all float on okay though! I'm just going to chin up, keep smiling and do my best to continue doing what is required of me. Things will work out. I can do this.
