Finally finished college at 41. Don't drink too much kids- it's bad for ya!

I just found out today that I got my 3rd consecutive Deans list, which is pretty amazing considering my normal college GPA used to be around a 2.2.

I have horrible problems motivating myself. (still do)

Congratulations! I have 1 year left here at 32. Might I ask what your degree was in?

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Hey hey!!!!!! Congrats and happy birthday - doesn't get much better than that.

I also graduated later, it took me 11 years because I kept running out of money, but it's pretty cool when you not only do it, but paid for it by yourself. I know I value my degree more because of all that I put into it to get it.

So throw some confetti!
