Dean's List

I was so happy today when I checked my student online account. After I ended Spring semsester with a 3.5 GPA, I wasn't sure if I would qualify for Dean's List or not. I couldn't figure out if it was cumulative or based merely on that current semester.

Well I figured out out: it's definitely semester based, and I made the Dean's List at University of Toledo for Spring 2014! :D

My GPA at my last university was a pretty terrible 1.77... I say terrible because for me that really IS dreadful. In high school, I had a 3.5 overall GPA, which could've been even higher had I got been struck with narcolepsy during my junior year. 

It means a lot to me to finally have my life back on track! And it's all thanks to my friend Katie who told me last summer all about how much Xyrem was improving her quality of life and convinced me to try it too. 

Now I not only can drive again but I also have my very own car, I have a full-time job and don't even need to sneak off to nap during breaks, I'm attending college again and feeling good about it, and I'm not only doing well at school, but I managed to make Dean's List my first semester back!


  1. Glad to read that school is going well! I noticed you are speaking at the NN conference this year (I assume you're the same Julie Fain on the schedule :) ). Don't know if you remember me, I'm Larry Upton. I emailed you a long time ago about my daughter Cassie and you even mentioned her in a blog post WAY back, like 2012. She is now a high school senior and we are finally attending our first conference this year. I will definitely highlight your Surviving College session as one she should not miss!

    1. I definitely remember you and Cassie! So good to hear that she is doing well and has almost made it to the end of those difficult high school years. I remember trying to deal with narcolepsy in high school... It was a huge relief once I graduated and was finally done with those early morning wake ups!

      I'm really looking forward to meeting you both in person this weekend :) Safe travels to Minneapolis!
