I think it's a great goal but they're not exactly giving away money, to anyone. Why would they? Who doesn't want an Ivy League education? I do. :P

Denis' best friend had an almost free ride for wrestling but he was also recruited for the Olympics, not exactly common. They looks specifically for gpa, sats, and put you on a sliding grey scale so I would get those in order first. Denis applied to a few but ended up unable to afford them but he and his parents were shocked just how little they cared about the extra things beyond sports.

I only asked about why only Ivy League because I would hate to see you miss a chance at a great education at a school without the clout, but I think it's great you're shooting for the stars.

The school I'm at now is a city school, it's a cheap education but a great school. If transferring doesn't work out, I'll gladly stay, but if I don't try I'll always regret it. I had a pretty high SAT score and have kept a 4.0 GPA all through college, plus have a good résumé. If I didn't think I had a decent shot, I wouldn't bother applying.

Find a way to not let sanctimonious "I am better than everyone", holier than thou people get under my skin.

-Continue with the awesome savings plan I have set up (I'm saving money, eeeeee! Best feeling ever)
-Do more. Every day I go to work, come home and sit on the Internet, go to bed, repeat. I need to do MORE!!)
-As soon as we get back to MN I am starting yoga and MFP again. I was doing SO well, and just...stopped. Cause I am an idiot.
-Have FUN with my dog(s)!!

Shoot only on manual for a year
Get out with Ella for visits. My fears are the only things holding us back. She'll never be Harley, but she can be awesome at it in her own ways.
DISNEY in May with Jessie and Ian!
Enjoy a trip to NY in March with my mom.
Get a new job.

Keep doing what I am doing to the very best of my ability which is harder each and eveyr year. WE survived last year and still made some good things happen around us. Fingers crossed, we survive next year and can say the same.

Spend as much time with the grandbabies as possible. send their parents on many dates.
