I love this stuff...

I stole this from a friend of a friends blog.
(She said it was ok)

Ten years ago today was August 7, 1996.

I was about to start my sophomore year of college.

I was moving into Howick Hall with my ever faithful roommate Moni-D.
That year was fun!
So much so that I was put on Academic Probation and my dreams of AKA were put on hold for another year.

(I fell out at the mailbox when my fall semester grades came and I didn't have the 2.33 I needed to pledge. AND I mean literally fell out-laid in the snow in a sob of tears! Our neighbors must of thought I got a letter saying I was adopted or something tragic. But in December 1996 not being able to go on the Spring Line was Tragic for me!)

Don't fret I made the DEANS LIST every semester after that with the help of SQ3R!
