Schoool's Out...for Three Weeks!

Final Grades for the Semester:

Intro to Soc - A
Intro to World Religions - A
History I - B
Math 98 - B (not counted)

Overall GPA: 3.66

I made the Dean's List, bitches. Dean's List. I've never been on that, in all my years at college. And I pulled that out the past two or three weeks of the semester. I worked my ass off. I studied so hard. And I pulled out that. My mom is crowing and gonna brag to my uncle, whose kid was always on the Dean's List at GA Tech. Hell yeah. I'm smart.

I think that calls for a shopping spree in a couple weeks. I damn well deserve it.

I wanted to drop a quick cheer here on your turf--DEAN'S LIST! Yay! Shopping, chocolate, and other indulgences are definitely called for.

Thank you, Miss Eileen! I was so unbelievably proud. I start school again next Monday, so I get to do it all over again. I'm determined to get out of my two year school by Fall 2009. In fact, I have to go to the bookstore to look at the books and figure out where I can find them cheaper. I ain't paying 115 bucks for a one semester math book. I'm officially no longer math retarded according to the state system, too. Heh!

Congrats! It's taken me so long to comment because I've been in the midst of finals, then graduation, and so...well, I've been a bit overwhelmed. So, now that I've been able to breathe for a couple hours, just had to pop by and say "Woot!" Because, seriously, Dean's List is awesome. :)

Thank you! How has graduation been going? What did you decide to do after you get back in the country?

I think I'm going back home to Michigan and starting my practice (i.e. the original plan). I've decided I can't do JAG, because I have to be mentally okay with being called to duty if they need me (which will probably not happen, but it's something I should consider since my contract is for 8 years). And I decided I can't do it. I mean, I don't mind putting my life at risk. I could be a cop or firefighter, and feel great about my choice. But the next war could be something I think is completely wrong, and I can't morally go out there and fight for something that I think is hurting more than helping people. Again, I very much doubt I'll ever be called to duty, but it's something I should consider, right? I mean, you really never know what'll happen, so you should really think aout it thoroughly before you decide.
So yeah. But I'm staying in Minnesota for the summer, taking a couple classes, and taking one of my law ethics exam, and then I'll ship off to Brazil until December, when I come back and study for the bar in February. I'll be busy, busy, busy. :)

It makes perfect sense to me, the whole not joining JAG. Because it's something you have to be willing to do fully, or not all. That's one of the main reasons I dismissed joining the military so quickly at 18. I don't do well, taking orders like possibly killing or hurting someone because of political bullshit. I mean, if I believe it will help, to go protect then throw me over there. But I don't really believe in the political aspect of the recent wars or military invasions. I think it's a leftover from watching my stepdad come back from Vietnam and be messed up from it.

I think staying at home might be good for you. It'll give you a support system while you adjust to all the changes that life is going to throw at you. And you know it will. Brazil is a good couple of months off, too. Especially since the summer learning is usually greatly abbreviated time.
