    GA - Please accept my deepest sympathy to you and your family. Having lost both my parents I know what a sad, difficult time it is for you all. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    GA, sad news. Look after yourself and it's ok to feel however you feel.

    Sorry about your dad, GA.

    I don't think I've been on here since June, and alot has changed since then.

    I finally got my driver's license in August, which means I was free to go to college on my terms since my grandmother has given me her car to use as I please (within reason). I said "was" because my mom moved in with her fiancee 3 weeks ago. I'm now living on my own amd learning how to juggle college and household chores, although I do spend alot of my time at my uncle's.

    A few weeks ago, I had an appointment with an orthopedist. I was having ankle pain and trouble walking because of my cerebral palsy. My orthopedist told me that surgery is the only option because it's permanent. The only problem is the recovery period. I can't do college and recover, so I'll have to wait until Christmas break to have the surgery. Until then, I just have to hobble around and wear an ankle brace for support.

    College is going great, although I do have a B in class that will probably stay a B because it's an online class, which I hate. I like the class, Sociology, but online learning just isn't for me. I've been elected president of three clubs, History, Political Guild, and Ally Outreach(LGBT). I'm going to four conferences this school year, Washington DC, and I may possibly briefly meet Pres. Jimmy Carter after one of his Sunday school classes.

    My bond with four of my professors is growing stronger. It's very likely that my college will get a BA history/government program next fall, in which case, I'll enroll in it. Three of the four professors teach history or government. I have really bocome close to two of them, sort of like an adopted child.

    I enjoy most of my classes, except for signing up for two literature classes in one semester. That huge amount of reading has lessened the joy I get of out of reading.

    I'm sorry to hear that, GA. You and your family have my condolences.

    Thinking of you and hoping for the best. Stay strong Randy!

    AG - Oh my gosh - that is a lot on your plate for one semester. I am so sorry to hear about the need for surgery.
    I always loved my poli sci/ gov. classes - it was one of my majors. I could never have taken an on line class - if they had them then-lol. I always liked the class room experience interacting with the class and professor.
    Good Luck this semester - it sounds like you have it under control.

    I love my political science professor. He's a combination of intelligent, nutty, crazy, and loveable. He's one of the two that I have become the closest to, and he really helped me come out of my shell. I've taken the only 2 classes with him that I can, until the 4 year program is implemented. I should be doing a conference with him in November in Savannah, GA. I plan on minoring in political science.

    Have a wonderful time in Savannah in November. I can't believe you can get the chance to meet Jimmy Carter ! So cool - not many people can say they met a former president. I have read he is very nice and approachable - if you can get past the S.S.
    What will your major be ?

    Thanks, I'm really looking forward to it. This will be first academic conference of any kind. I'm only a sophomore. Most students don't start doing this until their senior year or grad school, so it's an amazing privilege to be able to do this so young.
    I live only a hour from Plains, GA. My history professor has done this before, and he wants me and a few others to do it before Pres. Carter is no longer able to.
    My major is history, so it's a good combination since history and political science are so intertwined. I'll do a history conference in the spring in Tallahassee, Florida.
