"Great Job, Michele. You wrote the best I've seen. Have you considered graduate school? You'd be great....."
How awesome is that? Boy, it made my day. Getting to finish my degree has been SUCH a wonderful experience. I LOVE my school (University of Baltimore). It is a serious school, mostly for working professionals to complete their dreams. The school slogan is even "Knowledge that Works" - that one goes two ways.
Anyway, to have someone that I respect so much say that to me, and give me a 98 on my final essay, WAHHHHOOOOO!
Go me, go. I am actually crying right now. That professor saying that he believes in me means so much, so much. I questioned a lot over the years and right now I feel great.
