Wow, so where to start?

 

Well, I got an email from my little brother who went off to college today. It made me smile, alot! Here is an excerpt:

 

Hey there brother. Hello there sister. Just thought I'd drop in and say hello. Plus, I thought I'd give you an update on my schooling. I don't have very many set grades yet but I just got my first math test back (we took it yesterday) and it had 7 questions worth 10 points each (with different values for the different parts of the question). I got a 68 out of 70. Also, I have turned in all my homework assignments and only one fo them was somewhat incomplete. I still got 3/10 on it though and all of my other homeworks are 7, 8, 9, or 10's. He gave us a course grade but it is not "damning," he just took 25% of our homework and 75% of our test and made a grade. He said I would have an A+ right now with everything I've done. I also got back my first CORE assignment regarding the age of the universe and the mass of the black hole at the center of our galaxy. He actually used my homework in the answer key he handed out to explain the right answer and when I got mine back it said "Solid!" on it... I assume that was full credit as well. I just wrote an essay for that class and I have another quantitative assignment due Wednesday. Writing has been fairly simple as all we have had to turn in so far was a rough draft for an essay. My computer science engineering class is by far my favorite, although it is difficult at times to grasp either the logic of the code or simply the syntax. We are programming in Java and it's a "strongly-typed" language. Whatever that means... I just thought you might be curious to know I'm kicking ass and not looking back.

 

Love always,

Your little bro

 

So yay for him! I'm actually glowing with pride just now!

 

I want to say thanks to a few people who have been instrumental in something I am trying to do, I appreciate it more than I can say. Your kind words and insight are priceless and irreplaceable. So to Davey and Chris for the long nights of endless reading and for opening your hearts and your lives to me, to Joey for help with the adjectives, to Drew for his amazing intellect and humor, to Will for being amongst the first to compliment me, to Jon for finally fitting me into his busy schedule, and to Matt, who has inspired, taught, pushed (politely of course), and motivated me to do this from the beginning. I don't think I would have gotten very far without all of you, I am in your debt.

 

Love, Vivian

Dear Big Sis and Auntie Viv,

 

I am clueless as to what you are wishing to accomplish...(but what else is new..I find me that way all the time these days) I wish you the best in your task..and I have to say your little bro in college sounds like a genius...I never was good at science...history and english were my passions.

 

tell him congrats on his excellent work:)

 

and good look with your project.....

 

Michael
