Description from Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick: So - a week and half before she's supposed to go back to college, my daughter, Sam, decides she doesn't want to go back to Virginia. I could tell something was up, because she had procrastinated all summer applying for a loan and had been moody for about 2 weeks. Sam is going to transfer to a state University about an hour away. Since they can't admit her till January (too short notice) she'll attend community college for the fall semester. It's so nice to see her excited and handling everything on her own and in a timely manner!

    Thank you Alice!
    I agree! Sam just finished applying to the state school here on LI and also CUNY schools as a maybe. And how cool that she’s using her own credit card this year!

    Martha – I am proud and glad she made the decision before we committed to the $20,000 loan. I can’t get over the initiative she’s taking. So different from 2 years ago :D

    1. This is a gorgeous pick, Jeanne! :D

    2. How exciting for you to have Sam closer (and at home) for the near future!!!

    3. How wonderful that she came to this important decision on her own and is handling it in a very mature manner! You & Larry must be very proud of her! :D

    4. Just an aside — both Bob & I (before we knew each other) changed colleges after the first year. I think this is probably more common than people realize.

    Thank you Sarah, Faith and NY Bella!
    I am very proud of Sam and we definitely are glad to have her home! But we will have to remember that even though she’s home, not in high school and not bug her about school work.

    Lovely combination of blues Jeanne. We lived in NJ and then MI when our daughter went to school in Florida and now lives in Seattle (we live in NC) so enjoy the time with Sam…she may marry and move far away someday.

    Thank you Betty! I am sure she will travel – She’s a language major and wants to translate/interpret. So who knows where she will eventually end up.
