I just submitted my last assignment for my Bachelor’s degree with Arizona State University.
I finally went back to school three years ago, at the age of 35, for the Spring ’14 semester. I’ve exhausted my G.I. Bill. I’ve taken 18 credit hour semesters. I made the Dean’s List every semester except for two in which I deployed to Afghanistan and couldn’t complete enough credit hours. I have a 3.85 GPA, and if I didn’t mess up the finals for my last two classes too badly I’m on track to graduate Summa Cum Laude.
After three years, it’s a weird feeling to realize I’m done. Now all I can do is sit here and wait two weeks until graduation.
I think I’m gonna go spend some more time with my wife and son. They’ve been exceedingly patient with me, and I want to spend every last minute with them.
