I don't know about everyone else, but stories like that never annoy me. It seems you work magic with people as well as animals...

Celeste, I'm actually very strongly considering Occupational Therapy, specializing in work with disabled children. It would definitely be a job that I would enjoy. I have no idea what route I'd take to become one, but I've been doing some research to find education costs, requirements, etc. I think I have good enough grades to get into school to become one, although it would mean a lot of work (I think you need your Masters?) which is good. There is a school a few hours from me called Texas Women's University that offers a good, fairly priced OT program that I'm looking into, actually.

Soenjer- I probably just tell my stories to the wrong people then xD and I have so many of them, I guess it can get a little tiring (especially to my family) after a while. The kids and horses are a giant part of my life though, so its hard for me to refrain from mentioning them constantly. Haha. They make me really thankful for what I do have, even though I don't have the greatest health and I do have a few mental challenges. I honestly think they help me more than I help them, and they don't even know it!

I don't know what your grades look like, but I know a lot of schools have scholarships for students who are as heavily involved in service work as you are (where I went to school they have a full tuition scholarship plus stipend!). I wouldn't discount a school you're interested in just because of cost

I used to drive kids to a special school for severly disabled children-it was amazing what they did there-some kids graduated out of wheel chairs & walkers,although others really could not do much at all,but it gave the parents/families a break. I could see you doing something like this.

My grades are so-so. They were very good until this year, and I was holding a 3.82 GPA, but I made a pretty nasty grade in Algebra II this year (low B, haven't received exact grade yet) which I'm sure has brought it down significantly. I only made an 86 in Chemistry but its AP, so I'm not sure if that's graded differently or not? All of my other classes I got high A's in though, so hopefully I still have above a 3.5... I'm a bit worried though.

Verona, schools as in community colleges/Universities, or public schools? Unfortunately since I'm homeschooled I don't have the option of any public school scholarships, but I plan to apply for as many grants and scholarships as possible that I qualify for. I'm having a hard time figuring out where to find those scholarships though, since I don't have a counselor or anything like many of my public schooled friends do. I'm sure I'll figure it out though xD I have 1300+ hours of Community Service already, more than that if you count my 7th and 8th grade years, so hopefully that will count for something!

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to understanding how colleges, scholarships, federal aid, etc., work though, so I have a LOT of work to do this summer in educating myself on all of that xD

Scholarships can come from a variety of sources, from local clubs to major universities. If you're a member of any horse-related organizations, they often have scholarships available.

I think the best thing to do is determine what you want to study, and then search for scholarships devoted to that. There are a lot of scholarships available for fields that are in high demand. But if you know what you want to do, you can look at organizations, and in some cases companies, that do that for scholarship opportunities.

I'll see if I can locate some good sources for you.

Thanks Aforred! I guess I should be looking at some of the bigger hospitals/clinics to see if they have any sort of scholarships available to people going into the health field.

I wish I'd been part of 4-H or something so I'd be eligible for those scholarship opportunities, but unfortunately I'm not. I was part of AQHA for a while, but didn't renew my membership this year because I didn't have the money at the time, so that's out too.

I think that the first thing that you should do is to approach your college about scholarships. They should have financial aid counselors on staff working full time to help students. You will also have to fill out a FASFA form. Don't pay somebody to help you fill it out. The financial aid people should be able to do that. This is free. You may qualify for Pell depending on your parent's income.

XD Not yet, Rhen! I won't be out at the farm today due to us being closed for the weekend and me visiting my grandparents (BO is feeding for me, very kind of her!) but I'll try to get some more for you all this week!
