So, I just got an email from our State Department of Ed — I was granted $2100 in loan forgiveness money for grad school for next academic year!!! Meaning, they’ll loan me the money, then I’ll meet their requirements and not have to pay it back. Sweet!!! It’s money, with strings, but it’s still money. That’s such a weight off my shoulders. Now, I can use my summer school dough for other things (like books for my students, or books for me).
