walked the official graduation ceremony last week and earned my Masters of Science of Software Engineering!

Earning a Masters while working professionally, being the sole earner for a family of 4, being a husband, being a father, and often even a mentor is extremely tiring. It is for the most part an unrewarded venture unless you personally make it a reward. The things I learned and skills I grew were amazing but extremely tiring and nearly at a drowning level. I have no idea how I am still married, have kids that do not have police show up at my house but instead receive Student of the Week awards, and a job that pays quite well.


Sounds like you're doing something right--and if nothing else, then at the very least, setting a great example for your kids. Some people hardly ever seek credit for their own accomplishments, so for all that's holy--enjoy the moment. They're generally too few and far in-between.
