And sometimes the Universe gives you a huge neon sign saying, “Don’t go there!”

by Janie Jones

I can take a hint.  Really.

So, I have to accept that I’m just not supposed to take this classics class.  I’ve tried to sign up for it now for 4 different terms and for one reason or another I’ve never been successful.  I thought (and this is apparently where I always get into trouble…) that this summer I finally succeeded.  I was looking forward to it even.  And then…

Apparently the U.S. government body that makes decisions about college grants said, “Hmn.  Times is tough.  We needs to cut back.  Let’s not offer Pell Grant money in the summer no more.”

And, so now I must drop classics because I can’t afford to pay out of pocket for the course.

My summer is suddenly seeming very empty.  And, that my friends must be the silver lining.  Sometimes Fate does favor fools and unemployed-work-a-holic-crazy-single-mom-pushing-40-students.
