It is quite weird to realize that I am really, truly out of school, and that I don’t have to rush to class or do homework when we get back. I have all summer to relax, read what I want, and get ready for our lives to change completely in the fall. But, at least I have a few months to relax before all hell breaks loose.
I checked my grades and they are finally in. I passed everything, which means I did actually earn the diploma. Yay! It was touch and go there at the end. I had some health issues that completely took over my life for a few days, pushing classes and studying to the back burner. Fortunately, though, it didn’t kill all the previous work. Get this: I finished with a 3.51 GPA (at State; it was 3.77 overall). That means I barely sqeaked by with a “cum laude” distinction, which will be printed on my diploma. Dude, cum laude! I thought I would be lucky to even pass my classes. Man, working my tail off in the beginning is what kept me from crashing & burning at the end.
I’m so glad to be done. And surprised I made it with my sanity intact. Or… maybe we’re still waiting on the jury for that part.
