A proud moment for me

used my day off today to get my college transcript. met with my new adviser and i only need 6 classes to graduate! i enrolled immediately and will sign up for 2 summer courses later this week. then 4 in the fall and i will graduate end of fall 07. truely amazing. 14 months ago i was a hopeless degernerate with no future. now i can do whatever i want...go to grad school....anything. i owe the AA program everything. i am very proud right now. plus while down there i ran into my program buddy who happens to have 6 years and he's only 26 years old. God is laying out this path for me right now. what a miracle!

Wow!

That's so great Chicago. The gifts of sobriety are the most wonderful and the most appreciated.

That is excellent! Great job.
You give me hope that I will be able to say that too in the future.
Keep it up.

Very proud of you Chicago, and yet this another thing we have in common, I have 13 classes to fulfill my undergrad degree.

I just got my associates last 12/06, and I am working on my bachelors while working full time, keeps me out of trouble though. Good for you, hope3
