Both! 1.5 hours for 3 essays, spent 45-50 minutes on the first question, meant I had to rush the last two and the final question was pretty much made up rubbish as I didn't actually know the answer, but, it won't make a difference overall, I still pass - that's all that matters.

I congratulate you, o' Master of Forensic Psychology! Enjoy your freedom, and khm... well... you're now a sort of mind-reader, aren't you? So you know what I'm thinking about? :wink:

Starting my sophomore year of college in a few months. Physics major, and planning to go into astrophysics later on :geek: . I race road bikes, love to ski (alpine of course), and hike whenever I get the chance.

As for music, I'll listen to and love any kind of rock. Never really tried jazz, but I don't know why. Do you experts have any recommendations?

Religion: I was raised christian but am an "atheistic agnostic", meaning I acknowledge that the position of the pure Atheist is logically equivalent to any religious position (i.e. unsupportable). However, I live my day-to-day life like a pure atheist, acting with the assumption that god(s) does not exist.
When a scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

Studying medicine, while listening to nightwish, irish rock, or any other types of music. Unlike Pyro, who plays organs, I study organs. No religion, what's a good one out there?

I cook, I bake, I write blogs, i'm a freelancer, so I'll do whatever it is that can occupy my time.

I'm a student at a regional arts program, I major in Drama. All of this I do in Canada, and I just finished grade/year 11 (junior for you Americans). I love wesnoth and have been playing it for a very, very long time now. Years before I ever made an account. I got hooked as a young kid, and I miss the blue robed mages, especially the girls; they looked really cool. I know nothing of computer programming but I'm handy for figuring out the general stuff. I love jazz, rock, and every type of music under the sun. I love how friendly this community is, and I love seeing the game being developed, nostalgia be damned. Best of luck to everybody, and to the first commenter, getting a masters degree in anything is not boring at all. Oh, and when I go grow up, I want to be the very best, that no one ever was.

Ok, suppose it won't hurt to throw in my 2c worth for old times sake.

I work in a dodgy 'second hand' shop that it to say a pawnshop (no, not a pr0n shop) - I sell stolen tvs and stuff, sweep the floor and listen to grandfather jazz (which I detest).
I have completely discarded my training since I no longer fight except to protect self and family.

Religion: kind of a mixture of old-school paganism and African anamistic beliefs.

-thanks, bye.

That PhD didn't work out, huh?

I am with you always!

The PhD was postponed, trust me, after 6 years of study...
and yes, I'm as storyteller in real life, but some of the stories I tell are true. :lol2:

Grandfather jazz? The name is so strange I am tempted to hear some...well, maybe not. I can't imagine grandads and jazz in the same music.
Guys I never thought I'd come back to this forum after 8 years this is wild

Composer, pianist, percussionist—also amateur conductor and I dabble in a little jazz.
But still a student.

High school student.

Also aspiring programmer, very very amateur artist, and very very amateur musician. I wish I could be good at all three, but it seems the only one I have any natural talent for is programming. (and that's still nothing exceptional) The others I enjoy and am very interested in, but I'm not skilled with at all.


IMHO, school is very boring, unnecessarily time-consuming, and unproductive with the time it does take up. I often feel like I learn more during the summer when studying stuff on my own. (Right now I'm learning C++)

I am a research and software engineer in Air Traffic Management research. I work for a company who contracts from NASA/AMES and the FAA. I do everything from debugging software to publishing scientific papers. Hopefully later I can learn more math and physics, and become a teacher some day.

I spent many years practicing Judo and Tae Kwon Do. I now exercise every day which helps with my other hobbies, including day hiking, back packing, and bicycle riding. I live in California so it's a really nice place to do these year around.

I love sitting down and listening to music. Most of the music I enjoy listening to is usually considered 'Progessive.' I hit up the http://www.progarchives.com/ and look around until I find something good. So far it's been my best resource for finding new bands.

Jazz was definitely around when my grandparents were kids, see wikipedia for a source as to when jazz generally began (early 20th century).


I like to imagine a Jazz Marching band, and how quickly it all falls apart.
