    Hello all!

    Just wanted to make a quick announcement that I have successfully started my new full-time engineering job yesterday! I was able to submit and get all my committee official approvals (for my masters thesis) last week, so I was cutting it a little close... BUT I MADE IT! I can't/ won't say too much about it because of security's sake, but it's at an aerospace/ defense company and I've already been put on some projects that will be challenging but educational. I'm super excited!

    I don't know how often I'll be able to check DPF (at least during work hours), and I already miss having sleep-ins/ taking naps whenever I want. OOH, but I was able to get the 9/80 schedule, so I'll be able to attend some DSF friday releases (you know.. cuz priorities)

    Finally, now that I'll be making real money, I can get a DLR AP again!!! CAN'T WAIT!!

    Hahaha seriously! I checked the DSF fliers up to last July to see if I could detect any patterns on which Fridays they’ve been doing releases. It’s pretty even between the two schedule choices I had, so I chose the one that lets me go to the next cursive cuties release

    Gotta say I'm a little jealous of that 9/80 setup you got!
