The Big Award: History Student of the Year


Besides the hilarious picture of me not smiling, missing my neck, and looking like a complete goof, you can rest assured I was still very happy for the honor.

Today I received the History Student of the Year Award at Daytona State College. This is of course a small step towards my Ph.D, but it always helps when you know your professors have great faith in your abilities.


Pictured here is my fiance, who won the award for math student of the year. He was chosen out of 23,000 people, so yes, he's pretty good at math.

Part of the reason I was chosen was for all of my work in Western Civilization over the past year. I typically try to give guidance to the students that have never had the professor that I've had for a year now.It's a very challenging class, and although many of us have been required to take this class in our early years, the college course is much more in depth.

I feel so honored by my professor, Mr. McKeown, and the entire history department. Thanks again for this great honor.

What an amazing achievement! I really don't know where you get all the time to fit everything is - your Doctorate, your websites and then just generally being the presence you are on the internet. What can I say? Hats off to Lauren!

So, when are we going to get to call you Doctor?

Right on Lauren, congrats to you other half too, 23,000! That a lot of people!

Nor on what seas shall be thy fate;
I only know it shall be high,
I only know it shall be great.

@RJ

Soon, very soon I hope. RJ, you were one of the first people I met online. I think it's been over two years now. You have been a great supporter of me and wonderful mentor. Where do I find the time you may ask? lol-I don't, I just force myself to juggle everything and I think it makes me stronger.

@Bo

Thank so much Bo. You've always been so supportive of me, and I try my best to be the same with you. You have so many wonderful qualities and that really shows.

@Caroline

I just met you, and already, I fell like we are becoming great friends. I think it's amazing that you were inspired by me to go back to school for archeology. It's people like you that makes all of this hard work worth it.

@Ishtar

My tweeting friend.You are right, I am very happy. Sometimes I have to remind myself what I have been through, and what kind of person it has made me. Thanks again for your support.

You know I've been trying to create a link to post this on mine and it's not working right now. It's there on my blog roll but I wanted to post it big before it's gone.

WOW congrats to you both. What smartypants we have over here at AD. I am very proud of you, what a big step, not only changing career paths but doing it in grand style. You also must be VERY proud of your fiancée, one of out 23,000. But sorry you beat him as you are one out of a million :-)
