The first year of my computer science degree has come and gone in what feels like a flash. I've completed my first year certification, and now it's on to getting my AA, and boy has it been a long time coming. I have been to three different colleges, and accumulated somewhere around 300 credits, and if it's striking you like that seems like an awful lot, it is. Through a combination of bad luck, and one instance of outright being swindled, I have spent a -mighty- long time in and out of school without earning a degree, despite that prodigious number of credits. But, it is finally time. Just one year to go, and we'll see what happens from there.
