Hi, Wendi the student. You'll be graduating soon, eh? That qualifies as a genuine achievement, I am proud of ya. :)
The last thing that made me laugh was the parting statement made by this ancient old, fossilized AA member who qualified in a meeting last night. The last thing he was, looking out at the room of about seventy-five folks: "Die, you bastards, but don't you dare pick up a drink!"
I'm not a big fan of that "old time AA" if there is even such a thing, but, well, it just cracked me up the way he put that. I got the message.
Alrighty, have a good day, graduate. And, toss your pointy hat way up high at the ceremony, the higher up the more money you make.
Congratulation with the sobriety. Keep on keeping on. It's hard work but it pays off. I think that progress comes slowly, like hair and nails grow. You don't always notice it as it happens but then one day a penny drops and you know har far you've come.
How's your local group(s)?
All the best.
