Don't know what to feel...  
Wow. My grandmother (Chinese side, the living one ^^;) sent me a check for a sizable amount of money after hearing about my financial problems w/ school. Wow! I feel so happy and grateful, but also horribly, horribly guilty, because the last thing I wanted to do was hit her up for money. ;_; She said it was because she didn't like me working weird night hours at BBW...kyaaa! I don't mean to make her worry! I mean, she is *not* a rich woman, so it is a lot for her to give me this. I don't want to take it because I don't want to be the charity granddaughter that everyone bails out whenever she's in trouble.
Kyaaa...but...but...it's money! I need that baaaad for school...
Thank you Popo. Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you.

did you ask for it or did she just randomly offer? b/c if she just randomly offered, then don't feel guilty. that was her choice to give it to you b/c she loves you (tho, even asking, it'd still be her choice to give it to you...you didn't force her). accept it and let her know how appreciated it is by doing well in skool. ^_^

Well, she called while I was sleeping because I'd worked 9pm - 2 am the night before, and when she asked why I told her I needed money for school. ^^; So I guess she randomly offered, but when I look back it seems to me like I was hinting at "Give me money! See how poor I am!" :( B=

you're lucky. take the money put it in the bank and don't make any large flippant purchases for a while and tell her how much you love her how you're going to put the money away, thank you, and make good use of it etc etc... wait i don't need to tell you what to do... aw i'm glad for you. i wish my family was like that heh.

It's me, Laurasia from nness. I was sneaking around your LJ to see what type of music you like (so I can send the best mix for your taste!). I have (err, had) a Chinese grandma (my dear Popo) too! It just got me thinking about my Popo (who died almost ten years ago) and how nice she was.
