Another week gone

Dear School of Public Health,

I sometimes wonder why your professors think it is okay to give a 10 question test over roughly 700 slides. This really isnt okay. I do not  care to learn this information in particular and it is not easy for one to grasp. If you feel the need for us to know 700 slides worth of information the least you could do is give a 50-100 question test so that I have a better chance of passing. Also, I do not appreciate the lack of windows in the building and some of the "special" people you have teaching in this program. Most of all I do not appreciate the $1200 extra dollars I had to spend this semester and not knowing if I will get a scholarship (which is the reason I came to this school) next semester due to the unknown budget for next year. In conclusion, I cannot wait until the end of the semester!!

Dear Possible Internship Placements,

PLEASE OH PLEASE let me be able to find an internship in Texas. My heart yearns to go home to the familiar. I havent really had a sad week this semester until this week. I am tired of doing things alone!! 

Dear New York Weather,

Please stop tricking me with this idea of nice weather. I would really appreciate it if you decided that warmer weather could make a debut through the fall.

Dear Bloggers,

Please pray for baby Rebekah and her family. Pray that the Lords will be done. (www.ellisfamilynews.blogspot.com)

I won the trip from www.doubletheadventure.com!! So exciting!! Anyone want to come tubing?! Hehe!! 

I am currently sitting in class!! I got smart and brought my computer to entertain me for these 3 hours!! 

Please pray that New York State isn't in such a horrible financial crisis when they give the budgets to the university for next fall. My scholarship/fellowship is in jeopardy. This is a big reason why I came to NY and if it is cut in the fall that will be a bummer. I know that God knows better than me and that my education will be financed in some way or another in the fall, but currently my scholarship pays for half of my tuition and that is a large chunk being that I am an out of state student. If you are the praying type please pray that the scholarship will still be there for me for the fall and spring of next year. I am also in the process of applying for scholarships, please pray that positive results will come about. I am hoping that I will not have to take out a loan for my last year here. 

Other than that, I am really beginning to accept that I am here in NY for a reason and that I can be here and be happy. It may be hard, but its possible!! I am a lot more happier this semester.
