    Some colleges today look at other things besides SAT/ACT scores, things like public service/volunteering, clubs a student joined, and a candidate’s social media history. These weren’t factors when I applied to UGA, but they are important to some higher education institutions at the present time. Something that irks me about those joining the fight against affirmative action in college admissions is the idea that Black students aren’t as smart as, or smarter than, the plaintiffs in this case, but that is not true. A Black 14 year old Texas student graduated from high school last week. Her older sister also graduated from high school at the same age.

    I’ve not posted here in awhile. The reason is that I’ve been busy trying to get my only child out of a toxic relationship and back home. She did move back home, decided to pursue a program of study in registered nursing or dental hygiene. I also got her into counseling. Two weeks ago, she was accepted into both programs and has decided to pursue nursing. I’ve been working really hard to get her to this point, and the investment is paying off. We’re attending orientation next week, and she will begin the RN program in August.. .
