So kind of had to share a moment

So years ago I never finished school due to getting a decent job offer, 1st child, etc. Just got my cap/gown in the mail at age 30 with a double major and dual minors. Kind of a delayed win, but was 10x harder with 2 kids, a full time job, an ex wife, a new g/f, 2 dogs, and of course........a mastercraft.

Just thought I'd share and give some of those who didn't finish or never went to school a boost to get out there and kick some butt. Evidently a dog is never too old to learn new tricks.

And as always........Go pirates

Congratulations on continuing to drive forward! You have sucessfully hurdled many obstacles that would of stopped lesser men.
From what you posted, looks like you have had plenty of "life experiences" for being as young as you are. Keep your eyes on where you are going, not where you've been...

Very nice! My wife is working on her Masters now and I have seen how much work it is for her as she has to wait for the kids to go down before any school work is started bc I am out of town most weeks and unable to help her. Just curious. What and why two majors and minors? Did you get so far into one and decide to change but finish out the other? That is how I ended up with a major and minor. Again, good job! That is worth bragging about.

Good, now that you're done with all that school BS, you can come and do my stereo for me and all the wiring for the additional battery.

Signed, Your boats twin(bigger) brother!

Congratulations! I did the same when I went for my Master's. 1 wife, 2 daughters, 6 horses, 3 dogs, 3 cats, a 21 acre farm and of course a PS-190. Well into my 40's to boot, took a little longer than expected but I finished it off last Spring! You have acquired a great accomplishment.
