He gifted me this awesome Opus X Shark from 2010. I told him I'd save it for when I find out if I got accepted into the accelerated Masters Social Work program. Well I got my letter of acceptance! Over a 100 applied and they only took 13 so I will be done a year from this June!! Yay! Gonna get me a real job!! But special thanks to Ben for sending this prize my way!! It is fabulous!!

    Congrats Jim! Glad you were able to have it as a celebration instead of a consolation! Just giving back a little to a guy who is very giving to us all.
