Who would have guessed?!

At about 2am on July 16 I was up as usual. I decided to check my financial add status for UVU. As I was on my student web page I noticed something in my e-mail inbox. The words "Dean's List" stuck out the most to me and I thought to my self, what could this be? To my utter surprise I found something quite amazing. And this was what it was.

"Dear Dale(that's me):

Congratulations! You have earned the distinction of being on the Dean's List for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences for the academic year 2008-09. You should be justifiably proud of achieving a GPA at or above 3.6 as a full-time student. It is an accomplishment that reflects your dedication and determination.

Spring 2009:

This honor exemplifies your commitment to serious studying and learning. Thank you for your academic commitment as it contributes to UVU's growing reputation as a first choice institution of higher education. We hope you will continue to pursue excellence in your academic career at Utah Valley University.

Best wishes,
David P. Yells

In a million years I would have never guessed that I would make any deans list. I was so surprised I called my mother right away. Yes she was awake. She is a night owl like unto my self. For all of you that no me, you hardly ever see me doing school work. Some how I managed to do something I have never done before. Now I'm not saying that I'm not a smart person. I am no genius, but I do consider my self to be able to comprehend a lot of things. I just have to really put my mind to it. I think I may go out and celebrate by buying my self a treat. I mean I buy my self treats all the time, but this one will be special. Yay for me!! Until next time!!
