Wowee! My school just informed me that they're increasing the amount of emergency assistance they will give me. This is a grant for personal expenses, and they're now giving me enough to pay a month's rent! Such a welcome surprise, as I'm on the verge of having my gas & electric and cable turned off (cell phone already is), and the job I interviewed for never called me back for a second interview.
Thank goodness pasta is cheap, and my local deli and bagel shop both give me credit. Got someone coming over tonite to buy a piece of furniture from me, for a little cash.
Woo Fucking Hoo, even though I probably won't get the big check til next week, I'm so relieved about my immediate circumstances. Now to optimize my future...
