Today I officially received my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science. The graduation ceremony, though a bit long, was very nice. I especially enjoyed the bagpipe/drum marching band that led the processional into/out of the arena at the beginning and end of the ceremony. Remarks given by the various people in attendance were very well done and, though I thought it would be boring, I found the ceremony to be quite enjoyable.
Now that I’m finished with college it’s off to the real world, I suppose. Joelle and I are getting married in 2 months so we have several planning-related things to take care of in the next several weeks. In addition to that, I will be moving to Baldwinsville, NY at some point in the next week or two. Joelle and I found a pretty nice apartment there that puts me about 15 minutes from my new job in Liverpool, NY. I’ll be working for Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems and Sensors as a Systems Engineer. I’m nervous and excited at the same time. I just hope I’m good at whatever it is they’ll be expecting me to do. Joelle will be moving in with me after we get married and hopefully she’ll be able to find a job also. There are definitely many more opportunities in the Syracuse area than there are here in Binghamton.
Also, I got a sweet present for graduation. My parents bought me a Garmin Nuvi 760. It’s a really nice widescreen GPS for the car and will come in really handy when Joelle and I are trying to find stuff in Syracuse and also while we’re in Colorado for our honeymoon.
With that, I’m done for now.
