The last five days of my life have been totally consumed with either work fiscal problems, to a lesser extent, family issues and most of all, a student recruitment activity for my college alma mater (FAMU). Yes, that's why I've been somewhat missing in action. The long and short of it is that the event was far been attended than we'd imagined --- especially for a Monday night in the Overtown section of Miami.
There were at least 900 folks there. The auditorium was packed from top to bottom. About 25 students received scholarships in various amounts with a few getting a full ride for their four years in college. Now, I just got caught up in the moment because that's not what this post is really about.
My lesson learned from working this project is that I can't hang the way I used to. I was so tired yet exhilarated at the same time. The relief from the completion of the project was almost like childbirth. Now that it's over, I can get more than four hours sleep.
