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.
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.

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!!
