    I thought you all might want to take a look at this degree inferred on me from a prestigious community college :rofl: , that finally appeared in the mail almost 6 months after I earned it.

    I don't think it's any big deal (worth about the cost of the paper it's on), but it reminded me that I only joined PF a little more than a year ago before starting my first semester. I think that one year from nothing to an AA is something, not much compared to most here, but it's something none the less, and I owe a great deal of thanks to the dozen people who have helped me out with every silly little problem I have requested help on, and engaged me in pf-chat when I was confused about something that was no doubt elementary.

    So thanks a ton physicsforums, and here is to 6+n more happy years, where 2k > n > 1.

    (where k is a non arbitrary "hope" constant)

    Yay! A big, big congrats! :approve:

    What are your plans now? (Actually, if the paper arrived 6 months after it was earned, I bet you've already executed much of them, but I'd like to know!)

    I'm well into my second semester as a third year physics student at the University of Central Florida, hoping to scoot my way into a paid grad program. I had a useless music degree prior to this but I feel like I have accomplished more in this year long span of physics/math et al. The paper just reminded me to take a moment and say thanks to everyone who has helped me out. I should probably tear it in two and send half to micromass.

    Haha, no way. I don't even think I will when I finish my 4 year degree. Assuming I can get into the classes I need I should finish a 5 year Physics program in 3 years total at this rate.
