Good things come in 3’s… right?

Thanks, Dude.

“Luck affects everything. Let your hook always be cast; in the stream where you least expect it, there will be a fish.” -Ovid (He’s old, don’t worry about it)

In the past 24-hours, three really great things have happened to me. And really great things don’t happen to me.

1) I was rewarded a scholarship that I neither applied for nor was expecting... Honestly didn’t even know about. Since my tuition is already free (HOPE Scholarship in GA= My angel) and all I pay is fees, I’ll be getting PAID about $500/semester to go to school. AND WHO DOESN’T LIKE GETTING PAID TO LEARN AND LIVE COMPLETELY IRRESPONSIBLE LIFESTYLES WHILE HAVING NO CONCEPT OF THE AWFUL THINGS ASSOCIATED WITH GROWING UP AND ENTERING THE REAL WORLD? Not me….

SHOW ME THE MONEY! (Yes, that's me)

2) I rolled some change I’ve been saving (which by the way I would not recommend because it is tedious, gross, and boring. By the end of things my hands smelled strange and were a weird color and I almost had a panic attack thinking about how many different people had touched these coins and how many times I put my hands in how many gross places and how many other hands touched how many other gross places and how many of those coins have been around for how many years and so that is how many gross places and hands and years… you get the picture) to contribute to my trip back to Africa in December. My parent’s are making me pay for this go-round which has meant my life is NO FUN WHATSOEVER, so I’ve been saving saving saving pennies and dollars for about 2 weeks now– I had an even $100 to deposit! And I still have a few left over. SHWING!

3) I received an email from a professor in one of my departments (I’m a double major– maybe part of the reason I got this scholarship?) who I’ve never taken who wants to GIVE me money towards my trip to Africa. WHAT? Now people are just GIVING me money? This is absurd and I have never felt this way and I don’t know what I think about it… Actually I know exactly what I think about it. I LOVE IT!!!

But this made me realize: Isn’t money the root of all evil? But is it when you need it for something good? And is it so bad as long as you’re not doing anything bad to get it? Instead of thinking of this as being obsessed with money (which, OK, I totally am… This is America after all) I am going to think of this as me finally getting rewarded for all my hard work. And that’s good… Right? RIGHT?

That being said… I LOVE MONEY. And I especially love EASY MONEY. But is it easy money if you deserve it? Man oh man these are psychological debates I don’t need to start having before I go to bed. I’m already not sleeping well. Maybe all this CASHMONEY will help me sleep tight…

My Boyfriend on my BED OF MONEY... NOT. I don't even know this guy. And I don't have a boyfriend. And if I did have a boyfriend, he would definitely NOT be a Ginger.

  1. Don’t worry yourself… it is not money; it’s “the love of money” that is the root of all evil. Sounds like you’re having a good week. Congrats.

    • Thanks… And I should know that cause of PreacherDad. Speaking of having a good week, PreacherDad is even rolling in to town to buy dinner for me and the roommates. Good things/free things come in 4’s? I’m not used to this…

      • Enjoy the wave last it lasts!
        Have a great time and, again, congrats on the scholarships. It nice to see there are still some people who get excited about their education.

    Three is a magic number. Schoolhouse rock says so.
    Anyway, I was thinking of ways this could actually get better and I figured out that it would only be topped by the holy trinity of now defunct but once world dominating rock stars… The Police.
    If they were to reform (again) and pay you a visit with Sting handing you a wad of cash from the sale of his NYC apartment and give you a big kiss.
    That would be the cherry on top of this chocolate frosted cake of luck and good fortune.
    There, I just gave you my own fantasy.

    Re: #1 – Brilliant!
    Re: #2 – You think too much.
    Re: #3 – V cool!
    Re: fake boyfriend. – I am very relieved.

    • I definitely think too much sometimes… I usually laugh in the face of germs, I honestly didn’t believe in them for a while. But touch all those coins and smell your hand after… you’ll be a believer too…

  4. Hahaha! How awesome. Coins ARE disgusting if you think about it, I agree with you there. Can I have some of your luck? Hilarious blog, I just subscribed and I’m glad–I really like it!
