I am thankful today for an "A" in my last class. It represents weeks of hard work, late nights and other sacrifices. But it also reminds me of the many things I learned. The summer semesters are short and thus intense. They seem to go by in a painful blur. But this past semester taught me so much. I was introduced to new technologies, new ways of working together and new relationships. It also brightened my hope for what lies ahead in the new career I pursue.
