So the scholarship was based on 'academic excellence' and 'financial need'. Both of which apply to me, somedays it's a good thing to be in financial need. I'm really looking forward to getting a cheque for $1000. To be honest, I'm also hoping that I might still get another scholarship, but if I don't I'm still very thankful. I'm working hard at getting a faculty recommended scholarship for excellence in first year studies.
Yesterday I was feeling really sick, it seems so long ago now. Time is just kind of crawling by right now, which is okay with me-it's an alone night for me, and I'm liking it. I'm feeling much better now! Unfortunately though I didn't work last night, which means a small paycheque from Sobeys.
Speaking of Sobeys, my boss was really impressed with me today. They (office staff) mark our 'rings per minute', which is how many items we scan in a minute. The average for our store usually hovers around 13, and I've sat at about 15/16 for some time...this last week my rings were 20.43! That's probably not interesting to anybody but me, and maybe those of you that have worked retail, but it was good for me. I'm also 300 hours away from my next pay raise! At the rate I'm working I should be there in about...another 30 weeks, if I'm lucky. *sigh*
I'm glad I'm working at the school, not only is it a great experience, it's nice to have steady hours for once. :)
Tomorrow I'll be going to Hagersville and meeting Chuck's parents. I'm nervous. I have some homework to do, so this is it for now.
