Yup, I've got another one...
I graduated from the LDS Institute.
This is actually kind of a funny story.
So I've been in college for the better part of seven years.
All through college I've taken religious institute classes.
I usually try to take two or three each semester so that I will have one class every day.
Anyway, I've never really paid any attention to the requirements for graduation...that is until my last semester...
I went to the institute office and asked them to check if I qualify for graduation.
The lady told me that I didn't, and that I needed another couple of credits in a particular area of study.
I was bummed but figured I would get the needed credits sometime in the future.
I pretty much forgot about it.
Then one day I got a letter in the mail with an invitation to Institute graduation...
I thought I didn't qualify.
The letter I got said that I had 39 credits...39!
You only need 14 to graduate!
I don't know if they just felt bad for me and decided that I should graduate anyway, but I'll take it!
On Sunday I got my 14, 22, and 30 credit hour certificates.
I was the very first person to receive my certificate and walk.
They read my name wrong, but whatever. At least I finally got the dang thing!
The speakers were pretty good.
I also got to chat with one of my favorite institute teachers again.
It was a cool experience.
