  • School Update for all my friends...

    Afternoon to everyone!

    I've got my 5th semester under my belt and graded. I'm sad to report that I did not pass my comprehensive exam. I had to pick 4 of 8 essay questions, write 4 papers in 3.5 hours, and hand-write the papers. My mind moves so fast that I just couldn't keep up with it.

    On the flip side, I have just ONE class to take over the summer for my degree.

    On the POSITIVE side, I was able to participate in commencement this past weekend. Pics are attached!

    Grades:
    Internship A
    Ed Tech A-
    GPA: 3.85
    CUM: 3.91

    Also posted is a pic that I put together that shows me 2 years ago and on 4/23/14. I swear I was larger than the 366 that I was when I started Weight Watchers.
    Total Lost Running: 141 lbs. (just 59 lbs. away from my lifetime goal of 166 lbs which is 200 lbs. lost!) My target date to reach lifetime is January 1, 2015!

    Lots of love to everyone!

    2012 on left and 2014 on right Nice bench pic after commencement! Not exactly the prom dress I envisioned, but a beautiful dress anyway. I will await the Prom Dress for when I reach lifetime (166 lbs.).

        Congratulations on your successes and I'm sure your future successes.

        I wouldn't sweat the test too much as it can be the whim of the professor as well as their interpretation of the material as to whether things go well or not. (I know it doesn't make you pass or improve your GPA that you want to keep up though.)

        I had a final Sociology exam once that was one question with three hours to answer it. I thought about this, wrote one sentence that was the answer, handed it to the professor, and walked out in less than 5 minutes looking back at everyone that was writing like mad. They looked up stunned.

        I got an A. True. Sometimes it's all B.S.

            Thanks everyone for the positive vibes. Using my current new-found knowledge here at RIDGID! Whoo hoo! And, now it's almost time for lunch. Wonder if the weather is decent enough for a lunch time walk?

              Not here. 104 you'll melt today. Should start to drop off for the rest of the week.

              maybe when it cools some, a west coast field trip is In the works. Phoebe likes to entertain out of town guest. Especially from ridgid.

                  Rick, a west coast visit is definitely a GREAT idea. BUT, it may have to wait until the beginning of next year. My 25th High School reunion is planned for the fall. I'm on the committee to arrange it and am looking forward to going. BUT (again), I can't wait to meet Phoebe!
