Yes, somehow it is already February and I haven't blogged in quite some time. Well I have a few moments to kill and I thought I'd share something that is on my mind. As most of you probably know, my major is information systems. There are some days I hate my major, and other days I love it. To be fair, when I say hate, it's the same hate most have for school during the really busy weeks: lots of homework and projects due at once, you are learning a lot of new things and retaining little, and sometimes it's just hard. So like I said that's just school and college in general. Now to why I love it. I realize life isn't all about money, but it really helps when you do something that pays well. It helps that my major is (on average) the highest paid bachelor's degree at BYU. I also enjoy that it is a ranked top 10 nationally, so people come talk to us. It feels good to be wanted. From last Wednesday and including tomorrow, I will have had 5 interviews. So 5 interviews in 8 days. Let's just say I'm very lucky and grateful to be where I am.
I just want to use this space to say thank you to my professors(even though I sometimes dislike the homework) because they have done a good job getting this program where it is. I also want to say thank you to former students for doing so well. I want to say thank you to Reid Grawe for doing such a great job at getting a lot of students in the Isys program jobs/internships. I also am really grateful for the other students who have helped me so far this year, as well as AIS for setting up many information sessions. And last I want to thank all the people who have shown interest in the program, in me, and some of them for giving me a chance to apply to their positions and for interviewing me: KPMG, E&Y, PWC, Deloitte, Pepsi, USAA, the LDS church, Goldman Sachs, Bluehost, CapitalOne, and many more. I still have around another year and a half in school (maybe 2 1/2 if I get into the masters), so I'm sure I'll rewrite this whenever it is that I graduate. I just wanted to say thanks now to those people/groups that have helped me out.
So anyways, other things of interest would be that my brother Chance is in the MTC. He has two weeks down and four more to go until he is in Tacoma. It's very fun to read his letters and see how much he is enjoying his time as a missionary.
Other than that, there is nothing major to share. I do have a hole in my heart now that football is over, but I can start worrying about the NBA, so it should all work out. I'll try and make blogging occur more often, but we'll see what happens.
