Applied To College

A little update:

Etsy Shop Branding

I’m in the process of retaking pictures for all of my items for Little Shop of Treasures. I’m also redesigning the business cards so they look prettier and go with my banner. I'm even trying to get this branding thing right, and because my items are very 60’s/70’s retro I want to work off of that. It’s complicated, for me anyway, but a great learning experience.

College Funding

Besides working on my Etsy shop to pass the time, I went for another appointment about college funding and got some pretty good news. I guess I misunderstood before and there is a chance of getting full funding for everything, and living allowance for full time students - if my application gets approved. So I applied for the program I want to get into today and hope to hear from the college within the next couple of weeks. I'm confident I will get in - because I actually got accepted into the same program last year but had to turn it down due to lack of money.

In the meantime I have some paperwork to fill out which means some research and writing is involved. I want to knock their socks off and show them how awesome I am at it, and that journalism is the perfect program for me and I will be successful. That way I will look confident in my decision, and then they will hopefully feel confident in my decision, too.

It’s been an exciting week!

  1. Good to hear your college funding is taking a turn for the better and you got right back into the saddle and didn't give up!

    Thank you for the blog and shop visits. Much appreciated. What is branding? As a techless etsy hoarder newbie, it sounds complicated. Do you have a post about it?

    1. Thank you!

      Branding is kind of like the image you want for your shop. Here's a pretty good article on it:

      I love the "for dummies" books!

  2. Congratulations! I finally figured out what to do with my life in my late twenties. I already had the guy and the kiddo, so I knew it wasn't going to be easy. Four looong years later, I will graduate in May with my bachelors degree. Every moment spent with my nose in a textbook, doubting myself, and writing papers was worth it to have that piece of paper. It is mine forever, will open amazing doors, and can never be taken away. Kuddos to you for taking the road less will be SO worth it!

    1. Thanks for the kind and encouraging words! This is one of the most exciting and terrifying times in my life, but it's comforting to read/hear about others who have succeeded. Here's an early congratulations to you and your amazing accomplishment!


I truly enjoy reading all of your comments! I read every one of them, and do my best to reply to each of you!
