It came, it came!
Today I received my Gold Medal confirmation in the mail! Yes! After 2 months of waiting, 5 years of work, and 900+ hours of volunteerwork, personal development, physical fitness training, and expedition combined, I can finally kiss my record book goodbye! Forever--until eternity and a day. :)
My goodness, what a time-consuming ordeal that was...I never thought I'd finish. I could cry. So glad I did it, but man, SO glad it's over!
Washington D.C. here I come!
