Biggest high: finishing my Masters degree.
Doesn't it feel good not to do school work?
Sorry I'm just now seeing this, Library Goon. Yeah, it's nice for now, but my Masters is in education, so I'm going to be doing schoolwork for a long time!
Biggest high: Finding out that my wife was pregnant

Lowest Low: ... jeez I don't even know...
Biggest high: completing my Master's degree.
Biggest low: my father passing away.
high: meeting new friends
low: losing a job
Biggest low for me personally: son #1 having a horrible and potentially fatal disease (infantile spasms). He's better now. Whew!
Biggest high: son #2, not born yet, having an A-OK sonogram.
Scary stuff. Glad to hear he's OK.
Biggest high: completing the course work for my masters
Biggest low: not finishing the thesis by the end of the year

Technically done but not officially graduated yet.
