Tonight is the night, Tonight is when my academic achievements have paid off and I will enter the halls of the National Honor Society. This may not seem like a big deal to most people but it is for me. While attending school for the past 2 years I have seen how a 41 y/o has achieved academic success while younger students have done the bar minimum to just get by. I suppose they are under the impression that because they have an under graduate degree that an employer will just snatch them up. Well I tell you after your probationary period, you ass will probably be on the street since you didn't learn one thing while you were in school. I will also be waiting to hear all the cry's of "Why cant I get one of those Gold Cords to wear at graduation", uhhh dumbass, you didn't earn it.
I know this ceremony will be much different from what I have known, since the last time I went through a big deal ceremony was my initiation into the Chiefs Mess, hell that lasted a month.
Tomorrow we have a meeting which all us guys will get together, do some work and shoot a bit. I think that is what I need right now, some gunpowder and lead slinging to flush the mind and spirit.
Til next time....
