Thats a great story Justin (aka Skip)

We share a love of greyhounds. At this moment, mine is asleep on the couch while I sit here on the floor with my computer.

Update for those who do not use Facebook:

Returning to Brevard to finally finish my AA degree on January 10, 2011. One semester to go! Graduate in May, and then it's on to UCF's Rosen School!!! It is time to make 2011 the year that 2010 was supposed to be. And yes, I am renewing my Annual Pass!

It is time for a fresh start.

I have heard that there is some kind of boat trip before I go back to school.

I'm not sure, but I think there will be an Odd Cast or something like that on the boat.

Today, I completed my final class at Brevard Community College, in Cocoa, FL. Graduation will be official on May 16th. On to UCF in 2014.


Talked to UCF this morning. They were very nice, understanding and helpful. They pushed back my admission, so I do not lose my opportunity if the wheelchair and everything does not happen in time. I can still attend UCF, but do not have to hold my breath hoping all this "3-6 months for a decision/approval" happens quickly. UCF is going to happen, but now, I have time to make sure everything is in place before I go.

Is there some sort of special wheelchair you need to be able to attend UCF?

Congrats, Skip!

My transcript will reflect my Graduation and AA degree on May 16th, but I am not going to be at the Ceremony. I will actually be arriving in Orlando to see someone who I have not seen in a long time, take care of some business, and I am going to meet with an attorney too.

As my Facebook friends know.....my current wheelchair is constantly in need of repairs lately. The company that makes it, no longer provides parts for it, so I need a new one in general. A new chair can only be approved every 5 years, so we had to wait until March 2013 to start the process for a new chair. The process takes 3-6 months, so we do not know if I will get my new chair in time for the Fall 2013 semester. We want my chair to be reliable before I "leave the nest" and stray too far from my family, and my wheelchair repair guy. We are just concerned about reliability of my current chair.

Be very careful about meeting with attorneys in Orlando. They think in terms of very small worlds.

Maybe you can get Dr. Doofenshmirtz to "modify" the chair and add some "anators"
