    Sweet ass! Oh yeah, the grades are good too...

    I agree with Lex, being a nerd is the greatest, and I like the nerdy little pic in glasses on your passport, honey.

    Hey congrats Ashlar! I know how hard it is to get up there, I've been struggling to keep a 3.5 for a while now, but this semester sort of solidified it for me:

    Materials of Construction........................................A
    Intro. to Water Resources.......................................B+
    Engineering Economy.............................................A-
    Intro. to Geotechnical Engineering...........................B+
    Art History from the Renaissance to the Present........A
    Big Red Express, Pep Band.....................................A

    I'm a civil engineer (which is sort of obvious), but I'm with steve. What's your major dude?

    There's nothing wrong with having good grades...I was always a brainiac, too. The lowest grade I ever had in school was High School Alegebra II, in which I got a C. I hated it, so I just kinda skimmed by. Other than that, I never got anything lower than a B+ in the rest of my academic career in college or post graduate work. Being a nerd is cool!

    HAHA thanks Jana :)
    I'm still not very fond of my passport photo. I'm lookin pretty rough in that. However, after about 8-10 hours of traveling by plane, I'll probably look pretty rough by the end of it anyways.

    I did horrably in High school. I didnt want to be there and I didnt give a shit. Still, even with not paying attention, I graduated. *L* It helped that I had a high enough GPA to take my last two years of high school classes at a local college. I got duel credit and I was able to take as many classes as I wanted for free.

    Heh, I should have guessed you were an english major by your creative writing class. I feel bad that you get stuck doing so many papers every semester. I&#39;ve taken two english classes in my three years here....and those were more than enough for me :)

    I don&#39;t mine doing the papers, I actually enjoy it, however I can only take so many of them at once before I start to get a little homicidal.

    I get so envious, I feel I&#39;m the dumbest smart person you can get.

    It&#39;s the cost of working 30+ hours and holding down a full time degree, I guess.

    Hooray for student loans and even more expensive student fees&#33; (And to think I&#39;m actually getting it cheap this year&#33;)

    Nice grades, guys. I, too, am struggling with the final classes of my degree program, and I know how nice it is to get the grades, and bring the ole GPA up to a respectable number.

    I will be graduating in December.

    I agree their is nothing wrong with a "sense of nerdiness." I think a lot of people on this site fit that title well....

    I was an inductee into the phi beta kappa honor society during my undergraduate career and was a Fulbright Finalist. I did win the Udall and the JKC foundation scholarship for graduate school and graduated with honors for my doctorate. I was a phi kappa phi graduate (4.0 GPA) for graduate school.
