I started colege in February,after being out of school for almost 18 years and have made presidents list each term(now at end of 3rd term).What is upsetting me is that I got my certificate in the mail today and my mother,our boss and his girlfriend was here,so I showed it to them.When I showed my mom,she said that deans list is higher.Is she out of her freaking mind.President's list is the highest achievement,you have to have a 3.96 to 4.0 for this.Deans list is 3.46 to 3.94.She is down playing my accomplishments.I feel it is because she had been in college back in 2002 and only got 2 terms in and dropped out.How would you feel if you did everything in your power to keep a 4.0 grade point,and get put down by your own mother.I think I am doing great having a 4.0 when I had been out of school for almost 18 years.I know this is a bit long,I just had to vent a bit,because she is enough to drive me nuts.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
