I try so hard to make my posts as lite as possible, I've even restrained from posting anything political and I really haven't "vented" in a while.
At this moment, I feel as if I was punched in the stomach and spat on.
My daughter won a scholarship from the state of Washington to pay for tuition for two years at the college of her choice here in WA, but due to the "recession" she will not be recieving the funds, only a certificate saying she won.
I am mad as hell and I am bitter and my heart aches for my daughter as she was anxiously awaiting the release of the winner's names. I don't even know why they bothered going through with the "scholarship". She is crushed and I am left completely speechless. Graduation is about a week away and this has brought a dark cloud over what was supposed to be a special time.
