Wow, where the heck did 2015 go. It seems like the year just started, but here we are knocking on New Year’s door. It has been a great year for me personally, even if I haven’t had as much time for electronics as I would like. I have spent some great quality time with my family and had a significant change in employment. One of the biggest things to report is completion of the fall semester at Arizona State University.
I have been getting some great feedback regarding the last couple Arizona State University posts. It has been exciting to tell everyone all the great things that have been happening over the past year while attending ASU’s online Electrical Engineering program. I hit that first year hard and was very successful. If only it could always be that way. I’m still charging away into my EE program, but not all has been smooth sailing. I have officially even failed my first college class. Let’s start from the beginning and go from there I guess.
A number of people have contacted me over the past several months regarding my experience at Arizona State University in their online Electrical Engineering program, so I thought I would share my thoughts now that I have completed my first year.
So, May has been a good month for me. I have completed my first semester at Arizona State University (ASU) in their online Electrical Engineering program and turned 33 years old. I told something of a joke to a friend the other day. I said when I graduated high school back in ’99 I had a few options, as most of us do. I could go straight into the work force, go to college, or join the military. I did like so many others and set out on my own in the real world. It wasn’t long before I realized that I had to do something more with my life, and considering 9/11 had just happened, joining the Marine Corps in March of ’02 fit the bill. Don’t get me wrong, enlisting in the Marine Corps was probably one of the best decisions I ever made; however, after getting out I realized I still had to go to college. It’s funny how that works out.
