As many of my friends know, I have been in pursuit of my Bachelor’s Degree for 12 years. Granted, there have been breaks in between, but the start to finish date is from 1996 to 2008. Reflection has shown me that, for me, there is no other way I could have completed this path. I have been able to accomplish some pretty nifty things and allow life to help frame the way I look at this pursuit of education and its importance, and how that question is framed. It’s also allowed me to maintain my high-typing speeds (upward of 98 words per minute).

Now, I am done. There is nothing more I can do that will add to my pursuit of a Bachelor of Arts. I am done. I only need to wait for the paperwork to be completed, and then I will finalize this occasion by walking in the Summer Commencement at Portland State.

I can now say that I have credentials. I have a B.A. in Social Science with a Minor in Sustainable Urban Development. I will no longer list Michigan State University as part of my official education as the degree will be granted from Portland State.

I am done.

It could be the rest of the school year, and we try again in the spring, or if the kid thrives at school – we could be looking at another 4 years, minimum. Either way, right now, there is no move for us.
