When you try your best but you don't succed.

What a day! Seriously, I think The Universe is putting me on trial. But on the other hand it's been quite proving me that everything happens for a reason.

Today I've got the news that my solicitude for a scholarship/financial aid for college has been turned down. And well, I had always counted on it because it was highly likely that I'd get at least a 10% off my tuition fee every month. They said the graphic work and the essays I was requested to send were outstanding but that that my grades weren't that high, and I have a fairly good grade. I graduated with a 9.2 from High school, which I calculate would be something between a B+ and A-.

Yes, I'm quite sad indeed. I'm not pretty sure what's going to happen, my parents were always counting on it because almost always, students from other cities and who have to pay for rent etc., get at least a few percentages of financial aid. The expenses are big. And oh-how I hate this country some times.

But oh, well, just yesterday I said that if life gives you lemons make lemonade, I don't know exactly how in this situation, but I've been focusing on being positive all day long.
But I really am sad. I was and still am very excited about my career.

Now, these are a few shots of a the two collages I had to do for my scholarship. Some pictures are a little blurry, sorry about that.
(And yes the title is from Fix you by Coldplay)

I hope everything gets solved. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

yeah, I know. I'm seeing my options...the good news is I'm still going to that school. But I'll have to be extra careful with money, and I think I'll look for a job. I don't know, we'll see...
Thanks for your comment Gilda, you take care too:)!
