I had to announce the final grade on my term paper, Capote v. Grisham, was 100/100 points. I am on track to receive all points possible for my nonfiction class, plus 1. I believe that is an A+ in my senior course.
There is an amazing satisfaction that comes from accomplishing something that you weren't sure you ever could accomplish. Not just graduating from a university, but I haven't received a straight A on a paper in a very, very long time, if ever.
The party was terrific, but like I said, I have to wait to post until Monday. I have feet that are literally aching, but it is a happy ache.
