I graduated from college with a really high GPA, and I was able to win several awards and scholarships along the way.

I was also able to accomplish a lot in my department at my last job, and although the job didn't work out, I am really proud that I was able to learn and then clean things up so quickly.

Easy. I went to law school on full scholarship, at night, while working full-time and have a great career; however, without doubt, she is my greatest accomplishment. ::) :love: :love: :love: I do brag about her endlessly, too, and am always looking for new opportunities to do so. So thanks, DF! :wavey:

I bought a house at 24. I went to college at 26, and I'm working my butt off to get myself to where I want to be, hopefully ahead of schedule.

All I've ever done is having gotten a PhD and, honestly, I don't really think it's much of an accomplishment...

Being happy before my 25th birthday this July. I was so scared that I would live my life in the shadow of my past and be constantly scared of everything around me. I'm so happy to feel like I am finally truly living. And, my pride an joy is my baby Milo (dog) who was also born on my birthday. I love that little bugger to pieces :bigsmile:

Of course getting your PhD is a HUGE accomplishment! What did you study?

I am now actually able to see blue in shadows outdoors on a sunny day especially on a white wall.

There are two sources of light, the sun and the blue sky.
Block the sun and the blue sky is the only source for the light in the shadows.

The brain cancels it out.
The French impressionist painters started to notice this and reach for the blue paint around 120 years ago.

It's cool when you see it.
We don't think of the blue sky as a huge bright light source but it is.
Breaking through the mind's blindness on this is not easy.

Moved out off my parents when I wad 18 and never asked for help once financially or any other way. I'm engaged now to a wonderful man, we bought a house together a couple years ago and I'm still going strong.

I was in a bad relationship some years ago and got with a guy who got me into drugs. That relationship went south and I was going to move to another state when my family got wind that I was doing drugs. My brother and SIL took me in (didn't ask them to they wanted to help me) and I paid off $8000 worth of cc debt off within a year by working 2 jobs. Oh yes and I've been drug free since 2006. :)

Sorry for the background story but those are a few of my accomplishments.

I almost forgot....I've bought all my diamond jewelry myself except my e ring. :)

The photographic work that got me a guggenheim fellowship, and my book "**edited by moderator to protect privacy**". That also got me invited back to my alma mater to teach, which was funny since they had tried so hard, so many times to get rid of me as a student.

My biggest accomplishment thus far is creating a life that aligns with my true values and beliefs. I'm very happy.

I am going to shamelessly brag on myself for once.

I have lost 60lbs in a year.

I have won a year end award in both english and western on an open horse show circuit with my arabian (quite the feat, as they are normally shunned in open shows).

I have my certification in equine sports massage therapy.

I have sold my photographs.

I have sold a painting.

I have maintained a long term relationship.

I've made it through an abusive relationship and with a relatively sound psyche, though I shouldn't have.

I have written a poem that made the cover of my school publication. The publication went on to win a National award for that particular year's printing... with my poem on the cover.

I have run lighting for a local theater production that had sold out shows every night.

I have toured England.

I have read most of the classics.

I am mastering Spanish, slowly but surely.

I have had 10 carats of diamonds on my arm at once. :bigsmile:

Linguistics. I never really thought much of my PhD; it was more of a means to an end - as in getting a job in something that I liked. Now, that I'm considering leaving academia, I think even less of it.

Congratulations on being drug free! I also consider that to be my greatest accomplishment and coincidentally, I also stopped in 2006 (8 October, to be precise)!

Ling is awesome. I did a year of linguistics last year (only first year) and I loved it.

Congratulations on your PhD - it is a huge accomplishment!
