+ college. oh, college. +

Hi lovelies. I really wanted to write a nice long post thanking Nate (and all of you) for his generosity in making my fundraiser to stay in college the ISWU mission for this week, and explain that I just found out this morning I might be able to stay in college (and consequently found classes and showed up to my first one tonight) so I'm going to pray for the best and trust it works out, even though I'm still working 9-5 at the moment...I also wanted to elaborate on the lessons I learned last year from being in school, and how much I cried today, and how much I appreciate all of you.

But. It's 8:17pm and I have class at 7:30am, and I have to finish editing a photoshoot that is due tomorrow and take a shower and figure out where my class is and what I need between now and then, and put together tomorrow's Love Bomb mission, and I got 4 hours of sleep last night.

So. No pretty post from me. :( Just my simple, honest telling of my attempt to raise $4000 so I can stay in college. And you can help me, if you feel led. Either way, I covet your prayers. I needed them desperately today, and so many of you prayed, and God moved.

Thank you, I love you dearly.

Lauren- I loved this post. College is hard enough without having to work oh-so-much. You are definitely in my thoughts and prayers. (I will seriously pray for you. I didn't mean that just to be "polite" ok?)

Did I read somewhere that you go to OSU? Have you considered contacting The Alumni Association...maybe there is someone there who can help?
Best wishes-Holls

That's an impressive pull in a matter of days! Though I'm not really surprised--I have not yet met you in person, yet you have impressed me with your energy, love for life, and wonderful talent, so I have no doubt that many people will lighten the load. All the best to you, girl.
