I have done everything to get into a four year credited college. I got good grades, took the SATs (several times I might add), took online classes (some even with a normal school load), even graduated a year early! Now, all I'm asking is for a little help from the world. But I am not asking for anything for free. I will work for anything you have to offer. And remember, nothing is too small or too insignificant. Advice or a kind word is as greatly appreciated as a donation or contribution.

What they don't teach you in school!

Ever wonder why we are not taught how to do practical things at school? Like: how to decide on the right college, or how to make travel plans, how to rent a truck, how to move, how to change our address, how to set up electric at our own place, how to open a bank account, how to negotiate a pay rate for a new job, or even how to get a job?

I was inteligent enough to work my way through high school. I even graduated a year early, by taking online courses and regular high school classes at the same time! However, deciding on a college, getting together a move, setting up an apartment or place to live, finding a roommate. Geez! Those things are way harder than any advanced high school class. What happened to the instruction manual?

Yesterday, I started going through my things, getting rid of stuffed animals and a life long host of items with memories attached. Why? There is NOT a truck big enough to fit them all! hahaha Plus, it is not very practical to cart a bunch of, what others might call, junk half way across the continent. So, today was more going through the memories and deciding which ones I cannot live without. The others will have to remain just a notion in my head. :)

I looked at the route today. I need to find the best route from Florida to Washington. Anyone have any ideas? I would like the trip to be as fun as possible and I have about 11 days. Are there any great places on the way? Or places that would be worth altering my drive? There is a bit of adventurer in me! So I figure, I might as well make this trip worth it. I mean, how often do you get to drive 3000milestocollege in your lifetime? I would love to see some historical sights, meet some fun people, do some amazing things on the way. Any suggestions?

I'm looking for a place to live somewhere near Seattle, Tacoma or Renton. Actually, anywhere within a 50 minute bus ride to downtown Seattle. This is what I would like:
clean large 1 bedroom or 2 bedroom, private bathroom, air conditioning, heat, a nice view would be great but not required, a patio or small back yard, washer and dryer hookups (if it already has a washer/dryer that's fine). I have a medium size well-behaved/trained dog. I would really like to bring her. Her comfort on the long trip is a concern and also having a place that accepts her once I get there.

That's all the time I have for now. Please leave suggestions, comments, advice. They are always welcome and I need all the help I can get! Believe me!
Have a great day!
