My 15 Minutes Of Fame

On Tuesday, I was in the paper. If you would've blinked, you would've missed me. Ivy Tech announced their dean's list...........and I am on it! So check it out! If you scroll down far enough you will see "Jennifer North, Merrillville."

So anyone that says they are too old, don't have the money, don't have the time, or use their kids as an excuse as to why they can't get a degree........is dead wrong! I managed a 3.5 GPA with working full time, being full time mom, part time taxi driver, part maid, and part time cheerleading mom. So there really are no excuses and I now know that.

Not bad for a runaway kid from the trailer park, huh? NOW if I can just get that acceptance letter from Nursing School, I will be ALL SET!
