Mailbox

I got home late last night, so I didn't check the mail. So this afternoon, Superman and I walked down the road to the mailboxes (our subdivision's mailboxes are all at the entrance). We really were looking for our next Netflix DVD -- we didn't expect that white letter.

From the Office of Graduate Studies. From Super Duper University.

I only read the first word:

"Congratulations!"

I screamed excitedly, wrapped my arms around Superman's neck, and completely celebrated right there at the mailboxes. As a matter of fact, on the way back to the house, I just held my hand up triumphantly with that letter grasped tightly in it.

The letter is hanging on the fridge now. Yep, no joke.

I'm glad I didn't check the mail yesterday. I'm glad I was there with Superman, and we shared my first SDU memory together.

I'm a Ph.D. student!!!!

HOW exciting!!

The transformer story is very funny, especially that his grandmother took it all in stride.

That's a lofty list for the next couple years, but I have faith!

I also enjoyed your ranting about students. I went to college over the course of 12 years at night while doing my career during the day. Since I was an "older, non-traditional" student, I was able to sit on the sidelines and see some of the stuff you are describing. C'mon...seriously?? :)
