This video was awesome! Thanks yg!
Thanks too, oldguy & geospyder. Man, it feels SO good to be finally through with school.
The company I work for now, as a geologist, has paid my way through school. I'm very fortunate in the respect that, even though the job market totally sucks right now, I already have a job where I can use my newly-minted engineering skills. I guess now I'm an engineer AND a geologist, although legally, I'm just an "Engineer in Training."
We have one older civil engineer on staff here, but he does mostly project management-type stuff, and not much actual number-crunching-engineering. So, I've got to figure out now how to keep working at my current job, but still get hooked up with some experienced engineers. I'd like to be able to learn from some crusty, but still sharp, old dudes that have been doing this stuff for years. You know those guys - "I don't give a damn what your book says! This is how we REALLY do it!" Those are the engineers that I want to work with.
Anyway, I'm through with school now. I've got plenty of time to figure out all this other issues. Maybe, I'll even have the time & resources to go back to Burning Man this summer! Wouldn't THAT be awesome!
...but it seemed like such a good idea at the time...
