It's Official!

After eight years and four universities I have finally accomplished the task that usually takes people four years to do. I earned my bachelor's degree! What took me so long? Here are some of the excuses that helped me to sleep at night for the past 8 years!
  1. Marriage
  2. Moving
  3. Transfers
  4. Baby
  5. Working
  6. Blah Blah Blah (more lame excuses)
  7. Online Classes through BYU - the real excuse and the bane of my existence

In all fairness it was those three BYU online classes (psychology, biology, and history...yuck) that took me the past three years to finish. They took some serious self discipline that apparently I was lacking. So while Kev was busy graduating from dental and ortho school, I managed to earn my BSBA in Accounting. Yeah for me!

That is so great! I know about those online classes. At least you have finished. I am still trying. Those classes haunt me! Was history pretty bad? I either have to take a humanities or history next.

...and then a hero comes along. With the strength to carry on, and you cast your fears aside, and you know that deep inside......

You're my hero, and some day, I will be like you!!!!!

You're awesome Stef! Rather than laughing at how long it took you (and me!) to graduate, I prefer to think about how dedicated we were! You inspire me and I'm so glad we're friends!

Oh ya, and frame it and hang it while it's fresh! Mine is lost in a box somewhere and I wish I had it framed and hanging! After all the time it took to get, it needs to be proudly displayed!!!

Congrats Stefanie! Now that I know someone who has done EXACTLY what I need to do, maybe I'll be motivated. I want to do the same program and everything. I'm impressed! Great job.
