Hello, I read your feed back statement. I'm not sure why you feel at a standstill. Do you mean procrastination, or low confidence? If so you might benefit from some coaching or even counseling. If you are finding it hard to get started, perhaps you can make a goal to call one school a day, or send for one grant or scholarship application per day?
