Wish my 27 year old nephew would get his act together and do the same..instead she sits on his butt while he gets money from his mother, who is on kidney dialysis and relies on state aid. I don't disrespect people who actually need state aid, but he is just plain lazy.

Ummm, she was still short the credits, so the diploma means nothing. She feels better about herself, but the work never got done. She still hasn't graduated.
