Thanks. Definitely hard work and perseverance that got me through, but I do have to say, I had it the easiest at the adult ed. There where people who had 10, 20, even 30 years on myself and who returned to get there HS diploma. There where people who had kids (one of whom was 17 and lived on her own) and each one trudged their way through school to get what they want, even when life was tossing monkey wrenches in their way. I have a great respect for those that pushed through.
I was actually one of the quickest to go through the diploma program.
thanks again, to everyone.
