    Well, I know its that time of year, and most people who are graduating are doing the big HS graduation, or 4 year.

    I'm doing the 2 year AAS in Comp Sci graduation, infact... in about 10 hours. Then, on to a 4 year institution (or nut house if my schedule is anything like the past 2 years).

    Anyways, just thought I would congratulate all the upcoming Graduates.. you've come along way and kicked some butt. Good job! and.. Good luck in the future!

    Congratulations! You worked hard for it and you earned it. Keep us posted on which 4 year school you are going to go to, and what you are doing with your trumpet playing.

    DePaul University, Doing the fun CompSci Networking Security and Assurance program :twisted:

    As for trumpet playing, I now have the summer to actually attempt learning this thing and try to find a half decent private instructor.. :D

    I did 66 credits in under 2 years, where 12 credits a semester = full time.

    Thus... 48 would have been done, normally in 2 years... my brain aches, and my current position on all topics is ...... :?:

    Thanks, am crossing my fingers that they give me enough grants so I don't need as many loans.

    I wish we could figure out away to make colleges mandintory for public like k-12 is/supposed to be.

    Then noone could complain about not have higher ed, and we can get the government to pay our bill..*mutters* I mean, I'm not going to have social security if things go the way they currently are, they could at least pay my school bills :evil:

    I know what you mean. I have to take out loans for school, because being an upper-middle class white male, you don't get too many grants. But, I guess it's worth it in the end

    Yee HAW!
    Not only that, but if governments continue what has been started with United Airlines.... allowing the company to dissolve it's pension plan to keep them out of bankruptcy and not forcing corporations to have FULLY FUNDED plans, .... you won't even be able to count on that form of "putting it away for old age". I see a market in shovels, soup cans, socks and mattresses but a lot of messed up back yards and lumpy beds in the not-too-distant future.

    Yea, I just found out that my 12 year old daughter was asked to play piano music for the processional at this years graduation. They asked me to have her play slow/appropriate music. We will come up with a good play list, but I am pretty excited to see my daughter up there playing for all the "big kids." :D

    Good for her, Yoder. It's always wonderful when educators are smart enough to recognize talent and hard work this way. I remember how proud I was when my daughter was asked to sit in and help out with the Wind Orchestra for the University graduation ceremonies two years before she'd graduated H.S.

    Cudos to you too for helping her "along the way".
