Today I stayed in all day. It was too cold to go outside and the kids said they wanted to stay in as well. I did leave briefly, with the kids, to get some food at the fish market and local grocery store.
However, my first first for today is getting a Twitter account. I finally signed up for one and so far I think my Twitter name is Gloria Malone, I have one follower and no clue what I'm doing on there. :)
I'm going to continue to read and play around a bit until I get it right and figured out.
The second first for today was opening my first piece of mail from the school I was just accepted o Baruch. It's kind of petty but really exciting for me! I really wanted to get into Baruch and now that I'm in it feels good to get mail from them, it makes it more official, to me at least. ;)
The mail was from the financial aid department and they advised me that my tuition is going to be the equivalent of a teacher's salary.
This discovery led me to my third first of the day, applying for scholarships. I had never applied for a scholarship up to this point and was shocked to see how painless it can be to find scholarships and apply. Some require you to write an essay, while others just require you to use your creativity. There are numerous out there you just have to make sure that you use a reliable website and apply for real scholarships.
I'm a little upset today wasn't more adventurous, but even "small" first can make a world of a difference. Now its time to cuddle in bed with the kids and watch a movie!
Thank you once again for reading!
