).<br />and speyer is considered to be a rural town!<br /><br />Oooh! I'm turning green...<br /><br />lol, now i understand why your parents choose to homeschool you. not much choice in the way of schools around where you live, then. and you said your local school was awful... <br /><br />Somewhat worse than awful, according to one of my sister's best friends, who teaches there. <br /><br />hmm... doesn't sound like there's much in the way of part time jobs on offer either... <br />looks like you will just have to save up then, unless you know someone who wouldn't mind going halfs on you (some one being homeschooled maybe and has the same interests?), or you know a professor for classics. but as you live in the middle of nowhere... all i can suggest is moving somewhere a bit more ...umm... populated

(Horrible things-seriously! ;D) Getting the material to study...weeelll, that can be a little more tricky. ;D The Internet is not as economical as a used bookstore or a library would be :'(, but at least it's available.
And, as far as working goes, the nice thing about writing is that you can do it anywhere...even in a town with a population of about 200...<br /><br />Keesa
