Preparing to graduate!

After 2 1/2 years, 5 amazingly unique and different semesters, 11 courses, innumerable projects, one internship, Mr.V(me) is all set to graduate on the 14th of Dec 2006(if things goes as planned) with Masters' Degree in Mechanical Engg

I dreamt of this day for 23 long years. Now that it is here, i dont feel the excitememt and elation that should feel. It has been a fun time at ASU. Learnt so much ( in and outside the class) , made new friends from all over the world,made myself an amazing cook and hopefully become a better person than i was 2 1/2 years ago

Now comes the "real world" . first thing i want do is to get a job and make some time to go back to india and meet my loved ones. The day i left india(22nd July 2004) seems so long ago now.

i dont know what the future holds for me. but i think i am ready for anything that life can throw at me. thanks to my time here at ASU and tempe.

Ha! Well, congratulations, "d00d"! :-) Your excitement and anticipation of that graduation ceremony is almost palpable!

I've always told you that you were one of the very few I know who've had the conviction to pursue their interests in the face of tough odds. December 14th will be the culmination of that effort, and the end of that long journey.

Of course, as always, the end of one journey is the beginning of another! You'll feel the a different sense of delicious excitement, apprehension and anticipation of the world that lies ahead! Onwards ho!
