*Achievement Unlocked*

Hi Guys!

I just wanted to share that after many tears, screaming at the computer screen and moments of self-doubt, I am now finished my computer science degree! 


This last course was a bitch and I had left it until the end because I was utterly petrified of it. Finishing school has been extra challenging because I have been working 35 - 40 hours/week for the past 2 years in order to avoid student loans. It's so tiring working an 8 hour day and having to push your brain and body to work even more hours! It's funny, but I feel so much more emotion over finishing this degree than my first because it was just so much harder! I really think that Compsci is much harder than Biology if you aren't used to thinking a certain way. When I started, I had no experience whatsoever and I really struggled. I wanted to quit so many times, but now that I'm done I'm proud of myself for sticking with it.
I am just so relieved to be done so for now I am just enjoying being a 9 - 5 grunt and thinking about side projects to work on.  Blogging has been a ray of sunshine in the last couple of months and it'll be nice to be able to indulge myself in the beauty blog world completely guilt-free! I've thoroughly enjoyed reading some wonderful blogs by wonderful women and I can't wait to see what trends and beauty topics 2012 brings! Sooo good to be finished!! Woohoo! Now, I can go play my 80 Steam games that I've been too busy to play!

  2. Congratulations!!! I've only taken one course in computer science and you're right, the way you think is SO different from biology. That's totally awesome that you did both :D

    1. Thank you!! I got interested in Bioinformatics while taking a Genetics lab and thought why not get into compsci? So, 9 years later I think I can safely say I'm done with school for a good long while!
