Got my financial aid letter today. We do not in fact owe Smith college $18,000, thank all that is holy. A small loan is arranged for us (basically covering what i got in nonrenewable scholarships last year) but i think we can safely decline it, though it may be a bit tight. (Yes, i have been extremely blessed financial-aid-wise and have now gotten it into my head that i don’t want to graduate with any loans.) The bill reminded me to actually look for a work-study job, though, so for the next while i will be residing online at the Student Employment Index.
Oh, and i got about 25 pages into Joe Queenan’s book My Goodness and just couldn’t keep going. It is not an interesting book. You Can’t be Neutral On A Moving Train was quite good, though. And now i have Dar’s “I Had No Right” stuck in my head.
