I just went into the crawl space to rummage for a document and came across some things from college.
It has been 15 years last month since I graduated (ouch!)
I’ve been a stay at home mom for 9 years now. Sometimes I forget about my accomplishments in my “past life”.
I found these two documents and it was nice relive some of the pride I used to have in my academic achievements. In high school I was an A and B student. Nothing great. I didn’t expect anything better in college.
A little background..I went to college to major in pharmacy. By the end of the first semester I was fairly certain that wasn’t what I should be doing but I didn’t know what I should major in instead. My family were math/science people and that is what I knew . A quick aside to say that my mother taught biology and she was teaching out of the exact textbook I was using at my college for biology and even with her help I still scraped out a lowly C. My mom suggested I take an accounting course at the local community college that summer to see what it was about and so I did and I liked it. I then enrolled in one at college and it clicked. I missed a total of one question on all three exams combined and two on the final. I was still in the school of pharmacy at the time and they sent this letter to me.
The higher level classes I took, the more I liked my major and the better grades I got. My GPA went up and up but I had some not as stellar grades from my first year in college. I knew I was on the brink of graduating with honors but did not know if it would happen. As I lined up in the armory on graduation day I was handed an envelope with this letter in it. It was one of my proudest moments in life thus far.
