Graduating from college this week

So I've been in college almost as long as I've been a part of the Morrowind Modding community and this week I'm finally graduating! :D (10 years in college for two degrees)

I'm getting my bachelors in Computer Science and Mathematics and going out to Santa Barbara to do robotics and machine learning for a company there (been interning there for two years).

Just wanted to say, thanks for being such an awesome community. I'm glad to be a part of OpenMW and the Morrowind community. We're pretty good as far as communities go. I feel lucky to be apart of something so cool with so many smart and talented people.

Cheers!

Seriously though, congratulations! Ten years is a lot of time.

@Lysol: Thank you!

@Drummyfish: Thanks! Yeah, that's why it took me so long to finish. I didn't see the use in a math degree by itself so I took two years off of school until I went back to the engineering department for CS. Math was definitely my first passion.

Congrats!! And welcome to the Best Coast! I'm going to be in SB next week for a day, coincidentally.

Thanks!

To add to this already great month, my girlfriend's dad, Larry Martin, just won the Jeopardy Teachers Tournament! Woo! Go, Larry go!

Congratulations, Greendogo! I think it says something great about this community its members choose to post this sort of news here :)

I spent 4 years in undergrad and this year marked 4 years since my graduation. However, I'm now working on a master's in CS so I'm a student again for a little while to come.

I gave up on even getting a minor in mathematics in undergrad, although I believe I was only short one class :roll:
