Michael Keaton was the keynote commencement speaker at Kent State University in Ohio. It was my daughter's graduation. His speech was pretty good and he ended it with this:

My daughter graduated from college this weekend as well. She skipped the ceremonies but might have gone if Batman was there.

Keaton was pretty good. Oddly enough, he only attended KSU for 2 years and never did graduate from college. Can't blame the guy for pursuing an acting career. He obviously made the right choice in terms of making money and being satisfied with his career choice.

In his college days, he only owned one pair of shoes, 4 shirts, and one pair of pants.

College is a lot of work. My daughter worked full time and took 15-17 hours of classes her whole college time. Graduated with a 3.5 gpa. Took me four years to get to be barely a junior. Makes me proud of her. Her sister is on the same path.

Both my girls make me proud. They both have focus. Of course they drove us crazy and the younger still does.

You should be proud of them! And of yourself for that matter. It takes dedicated, hard working parental influence....they didn't decide to work like that all on their own...it was taught to them. Congrats parents of grads! Of all ages and all grades. It takes a lot of perserverance to make it work....

My wife graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Addiction Studies. Took her 5 years due to her working full time nights on a Psychiatric floor in a local hospital. She had a sizeable student loan debt when we married. Many times I offered to pay it off for her but she was adamant about paying it off herself. If you could have seen the look on her face and obvious pride she felt making the last payment, it was well worth it for her. I was so very proud of her stubbornness lol. (Though glad it was over.)

Well if it'll make you feel good also, Wolfe, you can pay all of my loans off! I've got absolutely no emotional attachment to paying them off all by myself.lol congrats to your wife though! Personally, I feel like thats kinda like the "No, I don't want an epidural doctor, I want to have a natural birth." SCREW THAT! To each their own I guess....lololol

I worked full time while doing my undergrad. Took summer courses, so it was 12 months a year of struggle. By the time I finished my degree and was only working 40hrs a week I felt like I was on vacation. I'd been thinking of doing my masters degree, but at that point I was done with school and decided $ was more fun.

Graduated with not one dollar owed in student loans. Used my degree for 10 years while working in the prison system, got laid off and became a painter. The rest is history.

Six more months left on my student loans, can't wait to rid myself of that bill. My wife's student loans..... Yeah that's gonna be a while, but she's making good money doing what she loves can't complain about that.

Good for you. That monkey is almost off your back. I still owe a little over 7 grand from an original loan amount of 53,000. I started repaying in 1999. At least the end is in sight. I will have paid almost 90 grand when it's all done. Yuck.
