Congratulations, Anne! That's quite a list. Do I have to call you Dr. Cloudman now?

My personal favorite: "Vet 132 Adopt-A-Vet Student".

Who was the vet student that you adopted?

In fact it was I who was adopted. By a farm in Burlington, VT for two days of back-breaking labor in subzero temperatures. Sure makes dogs and cats look easy.

Mom said, "If you type your title question into Google, you get 12,100,000 possible sites. I am sure yours is the most concise and specific. What it doesn't cover is all the late nights, hard work, and studying that make this such an accomplishment. We are really proud of you!

(Also in the Google list was a joke: "Why did the blonde want to become a veterinarian?" She liked kids.)

Endured is a good word to use for it! Pchem and physiology were some of the worst classroom experiences of my life.
