It's official

Picked up the mail tonight after getting back from dinner with the family. There was a packing tube in the mailbox which caught my attention. After dropping off the rest of the junk mail and the bills, I pried the end off of the tube and there was something I've been waiting for since last May.,

My diploma.

Yeppers, I am officially a graduate of Howard Community College with an Associate of Arts in English. Of note on the diploma are the words "High Honors 4.0" and the Phi Theta Kappa seal is attached on the lower right hand corner.

(Trust me, if you could see my official transcript from Central Missouri State, you'd understand why I was tickled pink to do as well as I did at Howard. Let's just say, I wasn't a real studious student then.)

I'm going to wait until wishweaver finishes her Master's Program before starting to pursue mine. It's not really in the family budget, (money or time) for both of us to be in school at the same time. But it just gives me time to decide which of three schools I want to apply for (University of Baltimore, University of Maryland - College Park, or John Hopkins) and to put a writing portfolio together for them.

Course, a few more published works wouldn't hurt my chances either. *grin*
