I've been waiting for the arrival of a $5000 scholarship that i was promised. I was banking on this scholarship to cover my rent and utilities for the next 6 months. Last night I received a letter informing me it had been withdrawn due, not to any failing of mine, but simply a shortage of available funds.
This morning I'm going back to the temp agency that hired me last summer in order to find some part time work. Sadly, in order to work 20 hours a week and keep on top of my research, I shall have to give up rowing for the remainder of the year.
I could really use some of your hugs right now.
