I'm not usually one to brag, but I believe I deserve a minute to express how proud I am of myself this semester.
Despite my family and doctors insisting to temporarily stop school, I deciding I had to keep going in hopes that I could graduate on time this May. I needed a distraction--something to keep me feeling normal and to help keep my mind off of my situation. I had no idea what the outcome would be. I figured my grades wouldn't meet the standard I usually hold myself to.
I ended up finishing this semester with a 3.875 GPA (three 4.0s and one 3.5). I also managed to complete 26.5 out of the 40 credit hours I need. I am proud of this because despite having long periods of time that I had to stay away from the school due to a poor immune system or chemotherapy, I still managed to get that many hours in.
I would say that I have outdone myself this semester. I completed it with good grades while keeping my stress level low. I hope next semester goes just as well and that I will get to wear that cap and gown in just a few months.
