Being an Alum is so cool!

It took me a bloody long time to finish college at the University of Oklahoma (link). I didn't even start college until I was 25, and then it took me another eight years to finally finish at 33 years old! Now I know there are plenty of other college students out there who are/were older than I was when I graduated, but it is still sooo bloody cool that I'm an alum.

I received my email Oklahoma Alumni Association (link) update today and it made my day to just think about the fact that I'm now an alum. I feel so blessed to have been able to not only attend such an absolutely fabulous educational institution, but also to be a graduate.

I worked so hard, for so long, and with so much adversity (again, not discounting others experiences) to have made the dream of a college degree a reality that sometimes it seems really surreal.

I learned so much while at OU and I had such a good time doing it, and above all I made the absolute best friends a guy could ask for!

Being an alum and reflecting on that just makes me really, really happy!

Thanks Be to God and Boomer Sooner!
