A Very Pleasant Surprise

I came home today after my second day in session at work (I'll get into these later) and having quite a productive day, feeling pretty good, I came home to this....


The Dean's List!  ME!  I'm in shock.  I've finally completed my first college course (despite going to school more than once when I was younger) and not only did I complete it, I excelled at it (okay, so it was kind of easy, but still!).  This is a big deal to me on so many levels.  The sense of accomplishment is...profound.  Now that I have it on black & white, so to speak, it seems a little more real.  A little more, "I can do anything".  A little bit more of a boost of confidence.

Anyways, wanted to share :)  It's not at all intended as gloating; it's just a personal accomplishment that meant a lot.

CONGRATULATIONS Jody~ You should/deserve to shout this from the highest mountain top! And you have a right to gloat, so go for it. What a great accomplishment. It's one thing when we are young, and the mind works a bit better, we may not have added pressures of work and jobs stress etc., and quite another to get this when life has many more obstacles in the way. This is wonderful to see.
