Anyway, want to know what I've been up to? Here's the email I received this morning when I logged in...
And also about 6 weeks ago I was invited to join Golden Key which is an unbelievable honor and priveledge. Not everyone gets that invitation, only the top percentage in the class and it makes me happy to know that the dedication I've put into my studies is really paying off. Matt is convinced I'm going to get recruited by my University after I graduate. I don't know about all that, it would certainly be very cool if it happened, but unless its a home based position I'd have to turn it down. Not a chance in hell I'm moving from the warmest, least expensive, sunniest place in this country for Iowa.
On behalf of the Faculty and Staff at Ashford University, congratulations on being named to the Dean's list for Summer 2011. Your appointment to the Dean's List is published on the Ashford University website under the Academic Superstars link. (Note: If you have submitted a request not to release or publish information about you, your name is not included.)
Your dedication and commitment to your studies make you a great role model for others to emulate. You and your family should feel quite proud of your accomplishment. All of us at Ashford University share in this pride as well and believe that students like you help make Ashford University the quality learning institution it is.
Again, congratulations for a job well done!
Dr. R.W.ProvostAshford University"
Anyway, its pretty exciting to be in this place in my life and even if no one is reading this anymore I at least wanted to put it out there.
I don't generally run around telling people how awesome I am or anything but I've worked extremely hard to get where I am in my degree program thus far and have sacrificed a lot of stuff to make sure I maintain a 4.0 GPA so I'm pretty stoked to share the news.
See you all in 16 years when I can get my fingers off the keyboard and face out of my textbook long enough to post again! I hope everyone is enjoying their fall!
