Just wondering if anyone else out there is in the same boat as I am. I'm part of a VERY large family who sees each other often, as in weekly, on both my mom and my dad's sides. Of all my grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, I am the only one to even go to undergrad, let alone professional school (not quite there yet, but almost). It's never really bothered me as much as it is tonight: I just found out a few hours ago that I got an A in Organic Chem I (hard-earned, I might add), and no one in my immediate support network understands the accomplishment in the least. I called my mom nearly in tears of relief and joy, and while of course she said "Good job", her congratulations were pretty passive and short-lived compared to the overwhelming elation I felt. It's kinda tough going it alone in a way - anyone else out there in a similar situation?
