Maybe it's not a bad thing?
If you always have to look at the bright side of life then running out of scholarship may turn out not to be a bad thing.
At this point I can not participate in more than a couple of competitions this year. This weekend I paid almost 1200 kr to participate with Zap and Poncho - that's 25% of my monthly income. My scholarship runs out in July, and I still have 18 months left until my final exam, and if I have to choose between eating and competing I will have to go with eating. Although not eating would help me loose those extra pounds. ;o)
Plus if I don't compete I might have a chance to finish Poncho's running dog walk training.
I'm hoping to participate in some trials in August, but for now training at home will have to suffice.
