Thank you so very much, Sandra, and everyone else who responded, for the
positive words regarding my grade in my minority cultures class.

Sometimes, it's difficult to "keep up the faith", as someone suggested I do,
but I'm blessed to now have a broughter base of individuals to outreach if I
sense that I'm getting into a rut regarding school and specifically, my
ability to fight through difficult stretches of it. I was considering
dropping college altogether, as I just felt overwelmed this particular
session; however, dropping out of college is probably something that
everyone's considered during a difficult stretch; or, at least, you've
uttered the statement: "I can't do this!"; right?

Sincerely,

Cory McMahon

Hello Cory,
That's great news! There are plenty of ups and downs both in and out of
college. Enjoy the up and keep going! Well done!

Very best wishes,
Sandra.
