Note the happy smile, and the college degree. What you don’t see is the 4.0 GPA, but trust me, it’s there.
Needless to say, this just adds to Krissy’s awesomeosity.
I have nothing else to say here. I leave it to you to imagine my immense pride at my wife’s accomplishments. Except to say that whatever you imagine my pride to be, you’re off by a factor of ten.
Well done, Krissy.
You have every right to be proud, John.
(Said as someone who couldn’t manage a GPA of 4.0 even if he had an entire team of advisers, flunkies, and exam stand-ins.)
Well done, Krissy. Congratulations.
4.0? Grumble grumble…
Congrats, Krissy! As a woman who finally(!) got her B.A. a year ago at age 50, I can relate to your accomplishment. My GPA wasn’t quite as high and my kids are all grown, so I admire you all the more for being a full-time mom and student at the same time. And John, I’m sure you gave her lots of support, so congrats to you too.
Way to go, Krissy! Juggling work and school and a kid is most definitely not easy and you clearly did it well.
What’s the degree in?
I’d have had a 4.0 if it hadn’t been for an A- in Children’s Lit. I will go to my grave convinced that the professor didn’t give me an A only because I wasn’t an Enlgish or Education major.
Congrats, Krissy! That’s wonderful. Let’s party at WisCon to celebrate. This calls for LOTS of champagne!!
A GPA of 4.0 is a breeze (in the 9 point system that I’m in right now).
Congrats Krissy on the awesome accomplishment!
That is awesome news, and congratulations to Krissy!
John, try not to explode with pride, it’ll stain the carpet.
Where is that institution?
Urbana University is somewhat uncoincidentally located in Urbana, Ohio.
Congratulations to new graduate Krissy! A momentous day indeed!
That is awesome. Congrats!!!
Congrats Krissy!!!! Hey whats the degree in???
Much love, Heather
Can we get a WOOHOOO for the sistah?!?!?
From a fellow 4.0’er who knows your pain (in a very small, Associates degree/community college sort of way)
For everyone who asked: Krissy’s degree is in business management. That’s right, she learned how to be a boss. Rock!
So, um, She’s still the boss of you, now? And she’s got the paper to back up her de facto rule?
Oh, very nice — good on her!
