Well, its almost time. I have less than a month now until I graduate. Many of you have seen my pictures through the years, since I was just a little middle schooler starting out into trapping, and read my stories about my adventures trying to make money. I can say I've been encouraged plenty by many of you on here, and just want to say a big thank you to all of you on this forum for how kind and encouraging you are!

For anyone curious, I'm going to my local community college in the fall to take a 2 year business course.

Also, I haven't been super active on here as of late, since my computer broke over christmas and I am waiting until after my birthday and graduation to either hopefully get a laptop as a gift or buy one with my grad money.

Congrats longhaiirboy, You follow your dreams and ambitions. You have always been a part of this forum and even though your ability to catch some fur when times were tough you pulled through. In my eyes you did well. Today you graduate and carry on with pride .

Dang LHB, I didn't know you are the same age as my daughter!
Congrats on your graduation!

Best of luck on all of your endeavors.

Just remember that you will find success and you will make mistakes in your adult life. Take chances because the one you don't take may be a missed opportunity and every new beginning comes from some other beginningstuff end.

Man, LHB, you guys go late for school. My kids last day was today and graduation was last Sunday. Never understood this school end in June stuff...

Congrats!!! Its just the start of a lot of life's adventures. You'll have some wins and you'll have some losses. And take it from a semi-tubby, semi-old fart who's lived to tell through some pretty stupid stuff, if your heart and/or gut is telling you its seems pretty stupid with questionable outcomes, don't do it. You'll probably have less heart ache and live longer. But then again, sometimes wisdom only comes through experiences. Take care!!

P.S. Are you still going out with your little old gf or did you all part ways..,??

Congratulations longhairboy, job well done. Best of luck with the college courses. I have always been impressed with your "stick to it" and how you continued to strive to always get better at whatever the task was. Most all the schools around here finished up today. We hope to see you on WAT for years to come.

I had longer hair than that a few months ago :lol: I had that picture taken in October, and then I never got a haircut till almost April. I'll probably let it grow till October again now :wink:

No worries, I'll still keep in touch. I don't have a laptop, or else I'd be posting lots of great pictures on here of whats been going on. I'll definitely post pictures after prom and graduation! (X2 since I'm lucky enough to get to go to two of them :roll: )
