To a dyslexic, there is a dog.

My friend, J, had a bit of a bad first half of the year. Customers holding out payment and a couple of projects faling through. So, i helped him out at various points, as I have a regular (if quite small lol) income and his is all irregular. Apart from a couple of loans, which he paid back, I also helped out a few times and didn't want the money back.

So, he got paid on one of the larger jobs and is insisting he pay me back.....but...he isn't giving me the money to do with as I want, as that'd mean it all vanishing into the blackhole that is my utility bills :P Instead, he has insisted that he is buying me a new computer :) My PC is pretty much knackered and way out of date. I can't access facebook or youtube on my council laptop anymore, and have been trying to work out a way of affording an upgrade for the last few months. Now, instead of trying to scrimp about to get a 150 upgrade that'll barely bring my machine out of the dark ages, I have a budget limit of 300 including P&P to buy a new PC and no scrimping to do for it!

*smiles* so.....last night on Ebay, I ordered a shiny new computer, with 4 gig of RAM and a 8 series Geforce. I will be able to play modern games again yey!

Happy yesterday. Took my son to work with me and he really enjoyed himself. He is off to college for the first time in three weeks and am happy he is following in my footsteps of study. He is really growing up and being responsible.

All good news! I am trying to get out of the office to go on Anniversary Vacation!I've been married for a whole two years today! People were clever and left for the weekend already, or didn't bother showing up at all. So here I sit, holding down the fort. Not only will I not be able to leave in time for check-in now, I won't be able to run the lunch errand I needed to run.

Vacation yay! Now! Geeeez...:)

I think I can get a huge discount off the cost of an Open University course. For those not familiar it's a home study system that has been running in the UK for years and is highly respected, not some sort of degree for money scam.

I've been thinking about it for a while now - probably since I joined here and realised two of my favourite Dwellars were back in full-time education. I'd always shied away from it before- a boat that had sailed and I didn't need a piece of paper to prove my worth anyway, hmph, thank you very much. The trouble is, that attitude didn't stand up to questioning about wny Bri & Dana were doing it. They were doing it for the love of learning, and that is definitely something I have.

The OU seemed the most likely avenue, but wasn't practical before I moved here because I didn't have internet access outside of work. Not 16 hours a week anyway. And then of course I had to find work and settle down and all that.

So it finally got to the point where money was the only barrier. Of course, isn't it always. But I thought it would be worth looking into the idea that I might be able to pay in installments. Maybe the next thing I do once I've had a good holiday and paid off my debts.

Searching the site, I realised there was a possibility of financial support. My salary is low enough and I have few enough qualifications that I should be eligible. Yup. It might even be in my financial reach for the course starting this year (or Feb next year!).

Wow. Gives me a lot to think about. It's a HUGE commitment. Up to 6 years study. But I figure if I don't start it then it will always be six years away. And if I start it and (god forbid) lose interest then at least I tried.

Hmmmmmmmmm.
Have to live with the idea a bit to see if it's a commitment I really intend to make.

It's feasible now though, and that's what's making me happy.

SG - I think you should do it. Heck, in the time you've spent in the Cellar you could have graduated by now.

(This from the person who should be working, but is posting here instead.)

All your happy thoughts are nice.

I can't think of anything except how grateful I am for vicodin that takes the pain of an abcessed tooth away.

I am getting it pulled on Thursday then I start a 4 week vacation before school starts again.
