I guess "Why?" comes to mind.
What is the point?

No shit and I somehow graduated. I should have went to a vocational or tech school thought. I'm good at things when I learn them hands on

I am 28 and that makes me feel old! I cannot imagine what you actual old guys think.

School is cool! I am happy where I am at with my BS in engineering. I can say I wouldn't be in the same position without the degree.

Re: Important



My day started with hitting the road at 330 to head to the coast for work. This was one of four job sites today.

Have about another hour left before im finally home. Will have about 32-33 hours in for the week by the time I get home...and it's only Tuesday.

Is it the holiday weekend yet?

The reason for the Masters is to teach, but I hope when I am that age, I am going to be able to retire in a few years, not go for more education and work.

Here is the story

I've got 41 in as of 1:30 am. 12 more tomorrow.



I graduated high school in 1986, married in 89 (and again in 99 ), first child in 90, grandpa in 12.

Going to be in the Fort tomorrow, meeting Mac for dinner around 5:30ish. Anyone in the area that wants to join, let us know.

What is it that you do? I'm assuming something to do with ginormous amounts of electricity since your pics are always of sub stations

We manufacture giant switches for substations and transmission lines. Basically every utility company is our clientele. 90% of my job is bouncing around the country to help with field installation, adjustment, and in the off case, repair.
