O/T - I\'m finally a Grad-gee-it (aka Graduate)
I'm posting this a bit early, but by the time most see this it'll be after, so......
As of 12/17/2005 sometime between 9:30-11:00 AM I will be an official college graduate from the wonderful Western Illinois University. Home of the Fighting Leathernecks (yes Marine's that is our mascot...the only non-military school to have such a mascot). I survived the odds and actually graduated from where I started, however with a different degree. I will have a BA in Individual Studies, meaning I got to take whatever kinds of classes I wanted. I mostly took law enforcement courses with a few engineering and such thrown in. As for what's next in my life, who knows. I guess step one is find a full time Police job somewhere southwest of IL, which leaves a lot of choices. Step two, find a girl who will tolerate me. Step 3, work for 25 years or so and retire. All in all I think it's achievable. Now I just need to make enough $$ to afford buying a New car, not a Jeep this time. I'm seriously eyeballing a new MINI. So it's been a long time coming so I figured I'd let ya'll know.
