i am now a legal resident of the crazy state of California .. bye bye Tejas, nice to know ya ..
i was so afraid i wouldn't be reclassified! i was almost positive i wouldn't! finally, my unlucky streak is slowly coming to a halt .. not only do i get to finally enjoy paying in-state tuition (so much that i don't even mind this year's raise in fees), i just found out i was awarded a 10K scholarship .. even the people in the financial aid office were like "wtf! you're lucky .. no one gets good news from financial aid" ..
back to work now .. research report due tomorrow!
