[Gulp!] I just realized that, according to my own admittedly rough calculations, with the cashing of my last paycheck for the year at the end of May, Marquette University has now given me just over $100,000 so far in their scholarship and aid package. I'm kind of in awe in realizing that an institution would invest that much in me. If the University were a girl, I'd buy her flowers. That not being the case, I have this idea that I owe some kind of lame, awkward, recognition for the gift, but I've no idea how to express it.
Other than my going back to reading my current book, I suppose, and trying to master the material.
