An Extra Tidbit

I had another funny thing happen yesterday that I totaly forgot to mention on my blog.

Well, you know that I went over to the college to sign up for a class. While I was there I had to get a hold on my record removed. Something about a missing graduation date, but it was a mistake.

After I got that taken care of I had to talk to an advisor. She was so helpful and told me all about how to pick a class and later how to register. Before she got me registered though she asked me about payment and financial aid all that good stuff. This is how it went:

Advisor: If you choose to do financial aid you are going to have to give your parents' financial information.

Me: No, I shouldn't have to do that. I'm old enough to where I can be considered independant.

Sister-in-law: She has five kids

At this point the advisors eyes got as big as dinner plates, and her eyebrows shot up into her hairline.

Advisor: Really? There's no way you old enough to have that many kids.

Me: Well, yeah I'm 29.

Advisor: You look so much younger than that. That's a good thing!

At this point I was grinning from ear to ear. In order for a person to have to fill out their parents' info on a finacial aid form they have to be 22 or younger.
Did everyone hear that? I look 22 or younger! Even if I'm getting older I don't look like I am. Haha! This was probably the best compliment I have received in a while. *does another happy dance*

I'll end with some pictures of me from baby to now.
