I'm so stoked and I just can't hold it in anymore

    I get to work at LANL this summer. Finally got my offer letter today, after weeks of waiting. I am oh so very stoked right now. I'll be working on something in Stellar Evolution and/or Pulsation. Very exciting. So stoked. :biggrin:

    Congratulations! Enjoy every minute of it!

    I will spend my summer time taking 4 classes :yuck: I envy you.

    If you call Flagstaff right by Phoenix then yes:tongue: . I'm still debating about doing the drive in one day or two. Part of me wants to do it one, just to say I could do it. And part of me doesn't want to spend twelve hours driving across almost the entire American Southwestern Desert. Last time I drove that much in one day was down the California coast, much nicer drive. We'll see :wink: .

    You going to make the next generation nuclear bomb franz? :wink:

    Well....kinda.

    I'll be working on models of stellar pulsation. Pulsating stars are kinda like nuclear bombs, right? Actually, the physicist who is my mentor does work in X division, but thats not the stuff I'll be working with her on.

    Hurray for you! Enjoy the vast, sunscorched deserts of New Mexico.

    Actually, I'm kinda looking forward to it. I grew up on the western edge of the Mojave desert, near Edwards AFB, so living in the desert is more normal to me than this living near the beach that I do now. Plus from what I've been told by people I know from the Santa Fe area, its a lot nicer than the Mojave.

    Congratulations Franz! The Santa Fe/Los Alomos area is very nice. Bandelier National Monument is nearby - one can see old indian settlements similar to those at Mesa Verde. And there are nice forests in which to go hiking.

    First of all, when I first saw this, I thought it said "stroked" and I was going to say, "You go boy." :tongue2: :tongue:

    But in light of what it actually says, it still applies! Congratulations! You go boy! :rofl:

    People always look at me funny when I say 'stoked'. I don't know why.
