My son has picked out a college. - that's GREAT.

It's in Pennsylvania... I'll miss him so much, but it's good for him.

But he's going to need a car. And I don't have any money to help him out with. Actually, I'll be spending pretty much all of my money from now on just paying for his application fee, student housing deposit, and trying to save up for what won't be covered by grants and student loans. ;_;

It's nearly impossible to get to college when you're poor. The good news is that he's going in for auto mechanics, and he'll be going to one of the best schools in the country for it.

I want to get him this car: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/290552458528

My first car was a 71 super beetle, and it will be a nice and easy one for him to work on if anything goes wrong. The car's in great condition and it's in PA.

So, he's taking up a collection. I'm taking up a collection. I'm looking into selling some of my dolls. I'll be taking pretty much my entire collection of books to the used book store.

I'm hoping that if we can raise about $3k, that will be enough. Unfortunately, I'm starting out with only $150. :\

Wish me luck.
