Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #231 - One Photo - WMU GRADUATION - 1997

Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #231 - One Photo - WMU GRADUATION - 1997

Hi Mom , As promised one picture and a short recap of the day, if I can remember back that far. It's all a blur.

However, I remember when this picture was taken. After years of delays in finishing my graduate degree, I put through the audit and paper work and received the degree in 1997. I was not going to walk, but I decided to do so. I mean, why not? And now I have this nice photo (and a few others), and it meant a lot to my parents, especially you, Mom. Look at your huge smile. You're so proud of me. And I couldn't have done it with you. Your support all along the way meant more to me than I was able to tell you, and I did tell you.

As for Tuesday, I have to remember my re-cap. It's Saturday now (1602.27) because I am behind once again. But as I promised yesterday, I would devote myself to catching up this week with one picture a day and a short recap of the day's events. Once I reach Saturday, I may do some T-shirt reprints to get back on track to produce some new content for next week. My idea was to plan ahead better and to write ahead, so I do not fall behind.

I woke today (by which I mean Tuesday), as I always do around 5 a.m. I get up, feed the pets, and get in the office by around 6 a.m. After the daily fantasy sports round-up, I worked on my Java computer project for the assignment due the next day (Wednesday), which I submitted Friday because of delays. This is partly why I am behind. I went as far as I could go with the project, working on it until 10-10:30. Then I sped through some daily work in my classes, posting discussions, and sending a note that discussion grades due today would be late.

I went up to school a bit early to work on my program some more and eat a Jimmy John's sandwich. Then I attended Calculus (2-3), drove to the Parkview campus and worked on my program some more, attended Java (4-5) in which we had a pop quiz, which I aced. Then after buying some sushi, I met with my therapist (5:30-6:30). By this point, I am whipped. I come home and basically make coffee and go to bed.

That's my day. Yes, not exciting content, but it's what I often shared with you, Mom, and right now, this is my life. Work and work and work and then sleep. I am still run down and fighting this bug I have, but I am managing. Eventually, it will all be worth it.

Reflect and connect.

Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
