Was going through paperwork today between cleaning the website and getting Ch 10 title image for Fyskar put together. I have a billion things going as usual.

Anyway, while I was dealing with piles of dead trees, I found my old college transcripts and thought it would be amusing to share what my interests were back then. Officially, I have an Arts degree in Liberal Studies with a minor in Sociology. Do you still have your old transcripts?

So…that’s my bizarre ride through college. I switched schools between Freshman and Sophomore year and lost my Honors and scholarships because of that move, but it helped my mental health. I did graduate a semester early because I took a ridiculous amount of classes each semester. I was trying to dodge a sharp tuition increase that was reported to be coming up.

How much do you think your classes have influenced your storytelling?
