Remind me to consider creating another chapbook once the semester is over. Not for a reason, just because I find it stress-relieving...compiling things you worked on. It's fulfilling. The end.

PS. Stress. Mess. Less.

Questions create illusions
and where do we go from here?
Well, for one, you'll
be here soon.

You know, I'm one to admit
I take life for granted,
and I get upset over a lot
of things, but in the end,

the sun comes up
in the morning.

It's a sight to see.

Money's an issue. I think I've sent out at least 30 applications/resumes. A few have responded, none have taken me, thus far. I know I won't have enough to pay this month's bills but I may be able to work it out with my roommates. That won't last forever. I've been considering another loan, but I don't know how to do that. I know so many people that say "Oh, I just had to take out another loan," and when I ask how they did that or what kind of loan they say "Oh, just go to financial aid." I go there and they say "Have you tried the Stafford Loan or our other grants." YES I'VE TRIED THEM I STILL DON'T HAVE MONEY BECAUSE YOU TOOK IT ALL. So I started looking at the options at the bank's website and it just scared me. So. Square one. I'm in a familiar position. Never underestimate the term "poor college student."
