It's Money Honey!

Man, it has been forever since my last post, but, sheesh, was this week the most hectic week imaginable. But thank goodness it is finally over! So now I must tell you about the most important part of this week, the Scholarship Ceremony!

(Below: My mom, me and TJ)



This Friday, among billions of other things, was the Saddleback College Scholarship Ceremony. The way it normally goes, the scholarship recipients check in, and was given a card that shows which scholarship they received and how much it is for.

But when I got my card, it was empty! Everyone else knew what they were getting except me (and Mel. I found her and her card was empty too. It made me feel slightly at ease, but not by much.) Turns out, my scholarship was a surprise. I received the Saddleback College Outstanding Student Scholarship for $3,000 dollars! What? I know, right. I was only expecting to get a couple hundred at most, but 3 grand! 

I am so excited. That money will cover classes and books for the rest of my tenure there. WHOOT! I was also extremely honored to be deemed as the (most) Outstanding Student,  that during my acceptance speech I felt some tears coming on. So naturally I ran off stage so I wouldn't be crying in front of hundreds of people. Sadly my dad, my sister and KB were not able to make it but I know they were with me in spirit!

Now, here are some of my favorite pictures from the ceremony:
