I got my GED.
I just got back from GTCC and I passed my last test(writing) so they are going to mail me my GED. I don't really know what to think right now as it has not really sunk in.

3. WHOO HOO! Great news!
:party: :toast: :bounce: :wow: :beer: :thumbsup: :grouphug: :fistbump: :headbang: :yourock: :woohoo: :applause:

I got mine in 83. I was an over-achiever until about 11th grade - then things went south. I even took community college courses at night while I was in high school (pioneered what became a regular program). I burned out. I never graduated. Two years later, I took the GED and passed.

Congratulations! Be proud!

12. Obviously you have far greater inner strength than you believed back then.
This calls for celebration.

36. I did that in '82. It really was exhausting mentally.
I only did half days of HS work, but then I was generally in day and evening classes until 11:00 at night.

I graduated HS, but burned out a couple semesters into the college life.

Even though we don't get along a lot of the time like most siblings, lol...

I still am very proud of you, you proved those kids in high school wrong and accomplished what you wanted to do, finally...

I guess in a way I look up to you now. :)

I love ya.

39. ccharles that is fantastic news!!!!
Thousands of your DU "parents" are very proud of your right now.

And I'm really sorry your school experience was so devastating to your spirit.

I was so proud of my own son a few years ago when he was around 7th grade or so and I overheard some "friends" of his making "faggot" comments about each other. He asked them, "Why do you think that's an insult?"

I dropped out of school my senior year and got my GED right away. Then I signed up for community college and found I was actually good at academics when there wasn't a looming disciplinary presence. Whatever you do from here on best of wishes.
