Well, lets see... I was involved in the pain for 6 years, they only had 9
months... on the other hand, all I got was a piece of paper, they passed a
bowling ball sized object.  There's also a strong arguement that their
pain just began with 9 months... ;)

I'm contemplating Grad, but I haven't made a decision yet.  I plan on
taking the GRE at the end of the summer, to force myself to think about
school whilst I'm at work.  I don't want to get too addicted to things
like money, food, shelter... ;)  I still need to do some investigating to
determine which schools I want to apply to... I have my list-o-cool
schools (UC Berkeley, Notre Dame, MIT, Carnegie Mellon) and I have a
couple of schools that I am 90%+ sure I can get into (Ohio State, Wright
State).  I need to flesh out the middle a bit, and get some good schools I
wouldn't mind going to and also wouldn't mind being rejected from.
