I Believe She's Done It!
All the finals have been taken and it looks like she will be graduating May 17th with a degree in Criminal Justice, with almost enough hours for a double major in Sociology. She hopes to work for Probation and Parole. Statistics class almost did her in. She's a smart young woman, but she has always had a bit of a mental block about math. It took a little hard work and a teary-eyed talk with her young Chinese professor for her to make it through the class--and maybe more than a few prayers. We're glad she did.
She's been under a great deal of stress, and has not been feeling well the last few days so when an older man at the gas station told her she'd better stop talking on her cell phone or else she was going to blow herself up, she politely told him that was an urban legend. And when the old man would not let it go, she pulled up the Snopes website on her phone and walked over to the man and let him read for himself that she was in no real danger of blowing herself up. I think she might have been a little less patient with him than I would have liked, but I guess someone had to straighten the old fart out! Where she got her chutzpah, I do not know, but she certainly has it and I believe it will serve her well.
I'm very proud of her and we will be busy celebrating for a few days so I will be scarce around here.
