Speaking about money....
Waiting on this scholarship is painstakingly difficult. I filled out the application about 6 months ago and I was supposed to hear back from them sometime in May (I've heard that it's usually the beginning of the month when you find out). I contacted the university to see if they heard anything, but no news has been received on their end either. It's up to a panel of government officials to decide whether or not I am awarded the money. Meanwhile my life is hanging in the balance.
I've pretty much scheduled my life around counting on this to pan out in my favour (hopefully I haven't jinxed it). But it's the reason why I only accepted the part-time job offer at RODS and signed up for full-time classes in the fall (a prerequisite for accepting the award). It means the difference between completing my graduate program in 2 years vs. 5 years, mainly because I can dedicate all my time to my studies if I get the scholarship.
This is very important to me.
Success or failure, I'll write all about it here when I find out. I hope that's soon!!!!
Keep your fingers crossed for me please ;)
