For my tenure at Tri-C, I have a 3.6 GPA. I have been offered the chance to apply for Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society of the two-year college. I meet all the requirements.

I graduated from Beaumont with honors, achieving a 3.3 GPA.

I graduated from Ashland with nothing. No cords, no pins, no honors. With a GPA of barely 2.7. I am the chronic under-achiever of my family, and of my in-law family….

For the first time in a very, very long time, I am achieving to my own standards. I will not be graduating from Tri-C, but at least I know that I did something to a standard which I hold to myself.

And now, I have something to be proud of, for myself. Because lately, I don’t have a lot to be proud of.
