As of yesterday, I am officially a high school graduate.

Yay!

Four years of busy work are over!

Now it's a summer full of working so I can pay my college bills...

That puts a damper on things, but still!

I'm a high school graduate!

Congrats, and welcome to the world of grown-ups, where you are expected to take responsibility for your actions.

Oh. Wait. It's no longer required anymore. [Big Grin] (Or should it be [cry baby] ?)

Sweet! Now you can get on with college-type fun! Learning is so much better with trained professionals! What are you thinking about for a major at university?

(I am still bitter about highschool. That sucked. College is a big improvement.)

Stay on top of the paperwork. FAFSA is your friend. Wherever you've been accepted, haunt their offices and fill out every assistance form you might possibly qualify for. It's the most lucrative paperwork you'll ever do. Spend at least a coupla hours/wk looking for grants- you don't have to pay those back. It is possible to pay all your living and education and party costs with grants and come out debt-free. I haven't managed it, but I know people who have. Even better, don't party.

Thanks!

I'm going to Waynesburg College/University (It's having an identity crisis... apparently Waynesburg is in the process of changing its name... I not quite sure what to call it) to study journalism and advertising.

Thanks for all the advice!

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.
