Face Lift

Friday I drove to WKU to drop in on my contact with WKU Finish. He wasn't in and I ended up speaking with Dean(name not title) Kahler, Vice President for Academic Affairs/Enrollment Management, who graciously accepted me barging in without an appointment. We reviewed my transcript. At the very bottom of the page was the F I received for the psychology class I failed to drop in time by the appropriate date. In '82 I thought little of it, I would just take the class the next semester and the F would be removed from my transcript. F... for failure., It was the perfect closing statement on the official record of by early experience. Irony can be so ironic. I will remove this mark from my past.
I feel like I am preparing for cosmetic surgery. I am going to pay thousands of dollars and invest a chunk of pain in an effort that will have dubious effect on the reality of my life. The hope is to heal the scar that has caused anguish and embarrassment and festered for a quarter of a century.

I think it's great. It's never too late to do something that has meaning for you. You and Ella can do homework together. :-)

From one academic to another, I say "go, go, go!" I look forward to hearing all about your return to the classroom (as a student, that is - you teach every day!)
