Motto: Why yes, I can Engineer that for you…
I walked across the floor of Allen Fieldhouse. I walked down the hill. I walked out of The University of Kansas with a Bachelor’s of Science in Electrical Engineering; thus ending my streak of 18 straight years in a formal education institution. If I had just listened to my gifted teacher in high school I would have been done in 17 years. Film was a mistake… but I’m glad I made it. Things would have been different if I hadn’t, and I like the way things turned out.
This is not to say I wouldn’t change some things if I could go back. I could have taught myself how to study. How to do homework. How to work with my peers. How to have a fun life.
Brief overview of college (the way it was):
I studied film for a year and a half I switched to (after many changes in a two week span) Electrical Engineer I met many of what I now consider to be my best friends I lived to two of the best friends I’ve ever had I met a special lady I RA’d for over 120 people, liked many of them! Will miss a lot of them dearly I went to the Orange Bowl and watched KU win over Virginia Tech in a nail-biter I watched 2 National Championship games in Allen Fieldhouse, one of which we won I quit blogging I started blogging again (hopefully for good this time) I got my first Android phone (for those of you who know me, you know how big this is) I learned calculus, embraced the inner nerd I watched Hot Rod, The Boondock Saints 2, and all the Avengers movies in theaters I worked for and with some great people both in the summers and during the year I grew about 2 inches I gained about 50 pounds There really is no way to list everything that should be listed. I’m going to leave it there. This post has been dogging me. I know it’s a big post. The first post after the close of me undergraduate career. What’s next?
