Literally just got a phone call from my social worker.
Best phone call I've had from her all week (she's been phoning me nearly twice a day all week, she's a superstar.)
I was wanting too start on a computer course at college, just as something too do really. We found the perfect one, which was just 3 hours a week and I could either go into the college itself too do my studying, or, to a community center just up the road from me. Well, it would be brilliant, as it would mean that I wouldn't have to stop studying when I had a 2 week hospital stay.
It would also put my laptop too some better use than plaign sims 2.
Well, it all sounded excellant, until I was told that the course was £65 (about $130). It doesn't sound like a lot, but we live on the breadline, and a lot of the time below it. There was no way I could aford it. I was really heartbroken to be honest, I'd really got my hopes up.
Anyway I told my social worker about it, and she said she would look round to see what she could do.
She got in touch with a company, that may be able too help, it is a charity that funds things.
Because I'm only asking for a small amount. They have agreed too fund me, so I can start college:)
This isn't just a case for something to do really, it's going to get me out of the house, and learning. I gave up college year's ago, because I was doing a full-time course and couldn't keep up. But this just couldn't be any more perfect for me. It also gives me an acheivable aim-somthing I haven't had in a long time. It's only a basic starter course, I'm going too probably know everything, and as it's computer based, anything I don't know, I'll probably pick up in seconds. I'm just so happy there are people so kind, that are giving me this chance.
