Santa 1, Grinch 2


Score one for Santa!

Today was the last day that my physical presence was required during my first semester back in college.

Guess what?

I got A's in all my classes!

If you're coming in to my blog late, I went back to college this semester to work on getting my paralegal certificate after being out of the saddle for almost 20 years.

Although the semester doesn't officially end until the 10th, my classes are essentially over. I have two small assignments to turn in for two separate classes, but oddly enough, I've racked up enough points to have A's whether I turn them in or not.


Of course, being as anal as I am, I'm going to turn them in tomorrow.

I just wanted to share with all of you, and to thank you so much for your support and encouragement since I made the decision to go back to college.


I'll be out of school for about 7 weeks, so it will give me time to catch up with you and your blogs, which I've sadly neglected.

Hubby's taking me out to a seafood feast to celebrate this weekend!

Ho ho ho! (and a bottle of rum!)

Hey...congratulations! I am amazed that you kept up your blog as well as you did and still get A's in all your classes.

You are a brave soul to return to school - congratulations on those A's. (I love the fact you admit you'll be turning in those 2 assignments even if you don't have to. Sounds like me.)
Enjoy the seafood fest!

Isn't it great being a nontraditional student? You don't have to spend all of your time drinking and trying to impress the hottie in the back row.

I took a class last year and found out what a different student I've become. This time around I actually read the text books and let me tell you it made the exams a whole lot easier.

I was in the same position you were with regard to my grade. When the instructor handed out the take-home final she told me I already had an A for the course. When I attempted to hand the exam back stating that I must not need to take it she let out an awkward giggle indicating that I couldn't possibly be serious. She clearly had no idea whether I was kidding or not.

Fortunatetly for me, I married the hottie in the back row.

That's most excellent. I slept in all my classes in college. And high school, for that matter. For much of the time I didn't get books.

I weren't a very well student.

Stinkypaw said...

Enjoy it, it's well deserved!

Congratulations! And enjoy your time of! and the seafood, of course!

That is so awesome! If course, I never had any doubts. Anyone who can get a cartload of groceries for pennies can ace college!

Congratulations on the grades. And good for you for returning to school. I too, was a non-traditional student who started college at the ripe old age of 30 after having dropped out of high school my junior year. When I started college, I had 4 sons in elementary school and worked shift work. But I got it done and you will too.
