Honey Dew, I'm Proud of You
I just wanted to write a short little post about how proud I am of my partner Ange. Ange has been working like hell to try and finish her Associate's Degree from Ivy Tech. She had some bumps and detours along the way but she is within reach of being done. She has only 4 more classes to take and she will be dunzo. She re-enrolled this semester after a little bit of an absence. She is kicking butt in her sociology class and is getting ready to take two classes online. She's a little nervous about taking all three classes at the same time in addition to working and you know, a personal life. I know she is going to do well because she is very smart and works really hard; she just doesn't give herself enough credit sometimes. She's a first generation college student and has never had a good support system to help encourage her along. I have been fortunate to always have a strong support system and I come from a family with a long history of higher education so I hope that I (and the rest of my family and our friends) can now provide the encouragement and support she needs to keep moving along. She's already applied to IUPUI for next fall so I think she's on the right track! Keep up the great work baby love and just remember how proud I am of you and will continue to be the support you need!
