Yesterday C.A. came over after dinner time and hung around until 9:30 or so, so we had a good talk. I don't get to see her much, so it was nice. In this particular case I hadn't seen her since January so we had a lot to catch up on. :)

We did talk about her going to Japan (of course), and her contract is for a year, so she'll be gone that long starting in September. She's really disappointed that I can't go, too, but she says I can go to visit and stay with her for a while once she's settled in if I want.

BUT. I've just done a whole bunch of searching (my eyes hurt from looking at the computer screen >>;;), and managed to find a place that does the TESL course via correspondence! =D

It's a 12-week course (but since it is correspondence, it could take less or more time depending on how fast I complete it), based out of a university in Winnipeg (I believe). The site was really informative, but I'm going to call them and ask a few more questions before I sign up, of course.

I'm going to have to figure out the tuition for it, though. And tuition is exactly why I haven't gone to university yet, because I can't afford it at all. Though only taking the one course will be significantly less expensive (just under $1000), it's still more than I have, and more than I could save up in a decent amount of time.

I think if I talk to my family, I can probably get some help with that though, and I'll contact my case worker for ODSP to see if there's anything they can do to help me out as well. I know that Grandma will help me out; back when I was originally looking into it (and couldn't find any courses that were offered in correspondence), she told me that she'd help me out financially if I figured out a way to set it up. I don't think she'd be willing to do the entire $1000 (and I'd feel guilty if she did), but anything would be appreciated...

Ahh, anyway. I'm very happy even to have found a course. I really hope I can work all this out~ >.<

I won't be going at the same time as C.A., but I might be able to join her later! And even if it takes longer than that I could still go, and it would still be awesome (if a bit lonely at first, lol.)

Cross your fingers for me~ ♥

...I shouldn't get my hopes up. Every time I do, something happens and things are yanked out from under me. But I can't help it. I want this so badly...

Yaaay! ^_^ I hope you get to get into that TESL course. I just know that it'd be awesome if you did and the experiences after would be certainly life-changing. *hugglehuggles for good luck and love*
