So, Her Deanliness has dropped in conversation the possibility that there might be more summer funding for further expansion of this new course I’m set to pilot in the Spring. Wah-hoo!
I, of course, have latched onto this news like a man lost in the desert chasing an oasis mirage. Money…MONEY!! If this is true, it means I can develop that course over the summer and have an international student — and almost cover my full costs for summer on paychecks alone. This will enable me to put saved money earmarked for summer toward something else, speeding me along my goals for debt destruction even sooner.
Of course, I proceed as though that will never happen so that I am not both massively disappointed and caught unawares with my financial panties down.
But how much mileage do we enjoy from a little glimpse of a good prospect? Mmmm 🙂
