I am on CLOUD 9!!!!!!!

I just got the grade for my first Masters in Social Work course (Social Welfare History and Policy). I GOT AN A!!!!!!! I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF! My final paper grade was 35 out of 37, and he gave me the greatest compliment:

I believe you entered this program with the heart to make an excellent social worker, combined with your success in mastering the finer subtleties of some very esoteric concepts presented in class you are well on your way to accomplish some truly extraordinary things once you enter the field.

This is a GREAT day!
