So not sure if you ladies remember or not, but I dropped out of high school when I was really young (my sophomore year). But when I found out I was pregnant, I started taking classes at the community college and started studying for my GED test. The GED test is made up of five different tests... Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies. I knew I had passed all of them, but I didn't find out my actual scores... Until now!!!

I got a 99 percent on each one of them!!!!! I was seriously in shock to hear this. I studied so hard and it really paid off. And to think I was worried about not being able to pass (You only need a 60 percent...)

So I got my GED certificate in the mail and it has an "Honors" sticker on it. Showing that I scored way above the average person!

Apparently more jobs and colleges are actually taking notice of a GED honors diploma nowadays and it's actually a pretty cool thing to have! A lot of colleges are even giving out small scholarships to people who don't have much money, but have earned their honor's diploma.

So I qualify for an extra 500 dollars this coming semester if I play my cards right, all because of my GED scores. I am so happy I could cry! I actually have a diploma now!!! It's an awesome feeling to know that I accomplished all of this before Ares was even born. He was my motivation
