HELLO ALL,

I HOPE THAT YOU ALL HAD A VERY HAPPY HOLIDAY AND THAT THE NEW YEAR IS GOING TO BE A GOOD ONE FOR YOU ALL! WELL, 2010 WASN'T GOOD FOR ME AT ALL BUT, HOPEFULLY 2011 WILL BE BETTER FOR ME. IT ALL BEGUN IN NOVEMBER OF LAST MONTH WHEN I HAD TO APPEAL MY FINANCIAL AID SINCE MY GPA WAS SO LOW FROM LAST SEMESTER THANKFULLY, IT WENT TROUGH UNTIL THE MIDDLE OF DECEMBER WHICH WAS GOOD!

SO, I FINISHED UP FALL SEMESTER AND CAME HOME TO MICHIGAN FOR THE HOLIDAYS. RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS GRADES WERE POSTED AND, I COULDN'T ACCESS THEM BECAUSE WHEN I WENT TO GET MY FINANCIAL AID APPEAL TO GO THROUGH THE FINANCIAL AID FORGOT TO MENTION TO ME THAT I HAD TO CLICK ON A CERTAIN LINK ONLINE TO ACCEPT IT EVEN THOUGH I DIDN'T KNOW OF THIS SINCE MY COLLEGE'S WEB SITE IS SEMI ACCESSIBLE WITH MY SCREEN READER. SO, AFTER CHRISTMAS I WAS ABLE TO ACCESS MY GRADES AND, I FOUND OUT THAT I HAD FLUNKED OUT OF SCHOOL AND WAS PUT ON ACADEMIC SUSPENSION!

I FELTT LIKE A FAILURE AND, THAT I WAS DUMB AND STUPID! IT WAS VERY STRESSFUL AND VERY EMOTIONAL FOR ME AND, STILL IS... SO, AFTER THE NEW YEAR I TALKED WITH THE ACADEMIC AFFAIRS OFFICE AND, I COULD APPEAL TO BE REMITTED INTO SCHOOL. BUT, AFTER DOING SOME MAJOR SOUL SEARCHING I HAVE DECIDED TO TAKE SOMETIME OFF FROM SCHOOL TO CONCENTRATE ON MY PUBLIC RELATIONS CAREER IN FINDING A JOB IN GOING BACK TO NONPROFIT WORK IN GOVERNMENTAL AGENCIES, A EMPHASIS WITH PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES ESPECIALLY WITH BLINDNESS. I ALSO PLAN TO LOOK INTO DOING MEDIA RELATIONS IN RADIO WITH A EMPHASIS IN INTERNET RADIO.

I PLAN TO PURSUE THIS CAREER ADVENTURE IN DENVER, COLORADO BUT, I ALSO STILL HAVE DREAMS OF WORKING IN THESE ADVENTURES IN THE EAST COAST ESPECIALLY NEW YORK. SO, THAT'S WHAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING TO ME FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS.

I HAVE TOLD THIS NEWS TO SOME OF YOU AND SOME OF YOU HAVE BEEN VERY SUPPORTIVE TO ME AND, I GREATLY APPRECIATE IT AND, I NOW FROM YOU ALL IS YOUR SUPPORT, GUIDANCE, LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING AS I GO THROUGH THIS NEW JOURNEY IN MY LIFE.

THANKS AGAIN AND, I WILL TALK TO YOU ALL SOON.


HUGS ALWAYS,
AMY
