@edgarblythe,
Aw, thanks. And thank you, osso. Feels weird to be done. We were asked to highlight our best work in a kind of evaluation presentation (not the same as the final) and I had too much stuff, heh. Had to leave a few things out.

@ossobuco,
I have never been happier to take a class. I did the extra credit stuff (the professor kept telling me I didn't need it) for fun.

Gadzooks, I'm an academics nerd.

@chai2,
Hey, thank you! Tonight we have celebratory* fried chicken.



*We always have friend chicken on Mondays (helps make Monday tolerable), but tonight we'll refer to it as celebratory.

Yes, that's right; that's how we roll at Chez Philbis.

Professor asked me to speak to the summer class version of the Platforms class (this was the one I took first, and got the 96.4 in). She said she always does this with whoever got the highest grade the previous semester.

Eek, I was top o' my class.

W00t on toast.

No word on the talk schedule; it'll be over Skype. I don't think it'll be recorded.

@jespah,
I've been following your job progress (here and on FB) silently. Big congratulations are in order. Awesome. Self empowerment is an addictive drug. Must be great to create a whole new job canvas in an area of new industry. I imagine it'll be even better to look back on it once you get hired at your new job. Or will you remain self-employed?

Best of luck!

@Ragman,
Oh, thank you!

I'm hoping to get employment. Freelancing is all well and good but I'd prefer something more stable.

I was asked to speak to the following semester's class about blogging because, heh, I got the highest grade last semester.

I just finished the presentation. I mentioned peanut butter. It was fun.
