I just wanted to send my counsellor a little something that I thought would make him smile. Your favourite alcoholic got two of her final grades posted this morning, and get ready for this… A+ in BOTH classes. Indigenous Studies at my age, who would have EVER thought I’d do this well. I am still waiting on my two other courses, but I am over the moon at the grades! Can you believe it, James? I am so, so grateful that I met you at the Orchard because had it not been for you planting that seed in my head to go back to school and reconnect with my culture, who the heck knows where this old alcoholic would be today. I know for certain my life is better forever by having met you. I look forward to the next Orchard Alumni day when I can come and hopefully spread some hope and inspiration.
