    As many of you know. I have been criticized for so many years for my spelling related errors, and at this time. I will like to personally thank every one on this forum. I have pushed myself to the breaking point so many times, but yet none of you ever gave up on me. I have learned a lot from the past years. I started out trying to get my thoughts, and ideas out on this forum. I was made fun of for my spelling, punctuation, and so on. When I take the time to look back at some of my very first posts. I cant help but to smile. Just by being able to see how far I have come.

    I have just got done finishing my G.E.D test on April second, and today I got the greatest news in my young life. I passed!

    The reason I am thanking every one on here is, the highest score I got was writing. I was shocked to be honest, but when I got a chance to think clearly.

    The first thing that came to my mind was this forum. The truth is if i did not stick to this forum, if I never been motivated to push my self. I would not of passed.


    So I thank every one on this forum.

    Well that is awesome, SIAB. Genuinely awesome. Rep sent your way.

    I hope the mods leave this here for a day or two. You deserve to have it seen.

    Congrats on your success. TexansTalk is sort of like a preparatory school...who would've thought it?

    It took me a second to figure out who you were, not because of your writing, but because I was trying to figure out who HouSportsWriter is. :lol:

    I'm really happy to see this, in fact I'm ecstatic. Makes me glad I defended you against the grammer nazis, but it seems it was the grammer nazis that pissed you off enough to accomplish this. It sometimes happens that way, negative pressure works if done so in a motivating fashion. It has for me in the past.

    So good luck. Why did you change your name from SIAB to HouSportsWriter anyway? Do you plan on doing some writing?

    My hat's off to you SIAB.

    I was one that really chastised you for your poor syntax, poor spelling, and incoherent posts. Tbh, my gut feeling was that you were an undercover Titan fan trying to be funny. At least me acting like an a-hole helped you out I guess. However, I do apologize and want to tell you congrats at the same time. You've come a very long way!

    Now if you could just help Norg out a little...

    A big welcome back ,SIAB.

    Benjamin Franklin once said that "Little strokes fell great oaks.” This is your first "great oak." Keep up your hard work. I have no doubt that there will be many more oaks to fall for you!:winky:
