lol! needless to say I am getting ready to go to college, but I'm actually having a lot of fun!

Going to College!

I dreamed I decided I would
go to college because I could.
So I figured out where I wanted to go,
on that day my computer ran super slow.

I searched for scholarships of every kind
but I got myself in a bind.
I forgot my address
so I tried to guess.
Well, needless to say,
it took a few days,
but they sent my scholarship money
to someone else- it's not funny!

I filled out form after form,
but they said they had no room in the dorm.
"Where'm I supposed to live?"
and what answer did they give?
"I'm sure you'll find something," they said,
"All you need is a place with a bed."

I was coming from out of state
and somehow my application was late.
So I paid all the extra fees,
but eventually they accepted me.
I tried for more scholarships to no avail.
"It's not fair!" hear me wail.
But I guess my parents could help me out,
although that could be a more difficult route.

Then I woke up and was glad,
because all the problems that I had,
were not really for me,
so I filled out another college form happily.

  This is a cut lighter poem... I can relate to that filling out scholarship aps and the whole nine yards. Luckily this was just your dream... although i'm sure it's happened to quite a few...well maybe not the scholarship It takes a hacker just to get to your own info on those things.
