Pell Grant Ahoy!

Since we just got married, I decided to take advantage of the fact that I can now legally claim that I live in almost-poverty. Even though I was basically living the same way I am now - in fact, I think I live better now than I did when I was single - my expected family contribution has gone down by about 20,000 dollars. What does this mean?

The government wants to give ME money to finish school. And who am I to pass up such an opportunity as this? Not I. I submitted a FAFSA (one of the smartest things I have ever done)and now the government is giving me a $1600 wedding present.

Well - I gladly accept.

PS. I got a 98% on my exam for my physics class.
PPS. It's my birthday in 40 minutes. This would be a lot more cool except for the fact that I am working tonight from 7 PM to 1 AM.
