Almost finished!

"Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help, and brave enough to ask for it."  ~Ziad K. Abdelnour

Hi, beloved community!  

I am Misha, a proud mom of a really great 16 year old.  I am also a fourth-year seminary student and  minister-in-formation, poet, story-teller, and lover of joy and justice. 

I began this campaign before my seminary journey started, and look how much you helped already! Thank you! 
I am ONE AND A HALF CREDITS away from my May graduation.  I'm looking forward to joyful employment and the start of a paying-it-forward era as soon as I finish. 
But there's been a personal hitch in our gitalong. 

A bedbug influx in our building decimated my bank account, and dominated this winter.   The cost of eradication has been far higher than I ever expected. Thousands.  I've used up so much rent money on these beasts.  And they never paid me a penny in sub-lease.
We could use just one more push to get us through.

Thank you, you who suggested I edit and repost this campaign. Thank you to those who already have helped in prior years (you got me to this $2500+ mark.  Thank you!) And thank you to those who have supported this journey in myriad other ways.   I love you.
