School's out, got my grades!

Well, school is done- time for summer break. No more crackin' the books til fall! I have to say I was fortunate that my Technical Writing teacher let me do my research report on Japanese knives! 13 pages of beautiful, mind numbing technical details of metallurgy & laminated knife construction! I got an A; I'm not sure if the teacher liked it or was just too bored to read it til the end!

Overall I ended up with all A's except for one B+. The B+ bummed me out a bit, but overall I'm pretty happy...considering my last previous college term ended in 1989!
