how to have a heart attack in 9 easy steps

  1. apply for more loans so you can live in a room in nyc and eat food occasionally
  2. be approved for loans
  3. accept internship
  4. buy plane ticket
  5. get a phone call from financial aid saying no loans are approved because you're not taking summer classes
  6. call financial aid advisor and do that despicable thing: cry
  7. call loan originator and do that despicable thing again
  8. get a call from financial aid saying since you're doing an internship they'll circumvent the rules
  9. cry again

Wait...I'm confused... Am I supposed to be happy at the last "cry" or not?

If so, they Yeah!!

If not, turn to page 42 and read from there.

Whenever I cry, my daughter pats me on the back and says, "It's ok daddy. Don't cry. Will be all right."
She's 3.
I don't really cry, but when I get really stressed she does that.

Money for living in NY can do that to a girl. Don't worry about the method you used - it worked, so now, take a deep breath and look up the cost of flights. You are getting ready to go!!!! -yaymee.
