Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Guess I should join in, I am new here too.
I am 23 and live in Brooklyn (where it is finally cooling off!). Star Trek TNG premiered when I was five, and my father (an avid trekker) had me hooked from the get-go. The show filled my head with wonderful words and phrases like "particle accelorator" and "antimatter" (I was so dissapointed when I learned the true nature of antimatter, it had sounded so mysterious and magical when I was a kid!). Likely I owe my passion for physics to Star Trek.
Let's see . . .
I have a Bachelor of Science in Education and am hoping to go for a Master's in Teaching Science within the next year or two. It is my goal to make my third-graders as passionate about physics as I was at their age!

Heh, I forgot about this thread.

Oh, right, I forgot to introduce myself.

I'm a senior at Earlham College, finishing up my Bachelor Degree in Physics & Astronomy, which is a misnomer because there isn't any Astronomy involved in the major! After I graduate, I'm going to panic and try to figure out what to do with my life. Possibly the Peace Corps. Interesting turn of events, I know.
Okay, I figured I update my introduction. I now have a Bachelor's Degree in Physics & Astronomy, I'm currently in panic mood, with no idea what to do with my life, and I'm still thinking about planning for the Peace Corps.

Okay, it wasn't much of an update, so sue me.

Well, at least you're sticking with your stated plans! That's got to count for something...

Congrats on graduating!

Re: Allow Me to Introduce...Myself

Hello, I'm a grad student of architecture in Portland, OR (USA). I couldn't say I'm a tech or sci-fi nut, but I have a general interest. I should be more of a spectator since my knowledge of the topics discussed here is extremely limited but I'll try to participate without making my ignorance too obvious

Represent! Born in Boston, raised in the 'burbs, and went to college there too (well, Cambridge, technically, but it's all pretty much the same ).

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Well, I'm Brent, 26, live in Texas, I've been a member of this forum for quite a while, I love this new forum topic here. Finally, a dedicated place for discussing science and technology, which I LOVE.

I have no degrees to speak of, but I have high interest. I actually do have a MS cert. My career and specialty is in computers. Specifically hardware and more specifically video cards and games. However, I have varied knowledge in all aspects of computers. I am currently pursuing a degree in game development. So if any computer questions come up I can help, consider me an "enthusiast".

I also have a great passion for the wonders of space and what might be out there. Therefore I love anything that deals with astronomy. I hope to take as many astronomy classes as I can while in college. I will mention though I do not believe in Evolution; I do believe in Creationism.

I also have a passion for technology, I love living the era we live in now, so many new wonders are coming about so fast. Flat screens, LCDs, portable multimedia devices, cell phones, the whole thing is just great, I love it. New and high-tech technology makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.
