Hey, Orwell was only twenty years off.

I was applying for loans today, and this little gem came up.

Notice: Please be aware that in order to help fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

I think my title speaks for itself. (Yes, I know the book is 1984, as it's one of my favourites, but "twenty" sounds better than "twenty-two".)

In other news, I broke 10k today in my wrimore story. I can break the goal of 12k today if I could actually motivate myself to write, but meh. I'll write some today and break 12k tomorrow.

I go back to Agnes in less than a month. Not even thirty measly days. Where on earth did my summer go? Remember at the beginning of the summer when I was complaining what on earth I was going to do with myself all summer1? Now it's the opposite. I haven't done everything I wanted to do, and now I want to cram all that in the last little month. This, of course, means that I'll inevitably be away from the computer a fair bit over the next month in order to cram everything in. During these times I'll likely ignore anyone who attempts to contact me during this time, so be warned. It'll be like Nanowrimo, only I won't be writing at breakneck speed.

Now I've hardly written in my wrimore story, so after a shower, I'm going to do that.

1To be more accurate, I was complaining about not being able to go to New York for the JKR/King/Irving reading, but when I think about it now, the turn of events has been for the better.

Actually, my parents are doing the applying (PLUS loan-ness, fwee), but they made do the grunt work in applying in their names because they can't be bothered to do it...or something. So if they're willing to pay it back instead of you, there's an option.

see, mum doesn't qualify for plus and my dad can't even be bothered to pay child support.

As usual, I didn't look at most of the qualifications; I just know they exist.

We're taking out our PLUS loan through Wachovia, but they have private loans as well. You may need a co-signer depending on your situation.

Also, Chase has private student loans. From the looks of this site, you'll usually need a co-signer.

Seriously, I just googled "student loan" and found tons of stuff, so if these don't work, something out there will.
