So, wow. The response to my previous post has been so much larger than I’d originally hoped, and I am so grateful. As of today (6/25/2011) I am $37. 36 over my stated need. If you donated today/late yesterday and would like a little money back since I met my goal, let me know. If not, any extra money people choose to give will be directed toward basic living expenses when I arrive in London. I’ll need a cheap cell phone, for example, and food. It’s up to the donors. Hopefully my search for a second job will be successful soon!
My parents are in the process of writing a note to thank everyone who’s helped me out. Thanks to your generosity, I’ll be the first person in my mom’s family to grad school–and as far as I know, I’ll be the first woman to do so in my dad’s. It’s a big deal for all of us. Thank you again. And in September, look for updates about school!
