It's all over!

4 years of ups and downs in my life, directly related to my studies, are over!
That's right, I just graduated! I'm officially an "Instrumentation and controls engineering technologist" kinda wordy, but I'll take it. I was kind of stressed that I wasn't gonna finish this semester, but it ended up being one of my best semesters overall in the whole program!
The cherry on top: I have another job interview with a company that is about half an hour from my front doorstep, they do 3 interviews before offering a job, and my third interview with them is on Friday. I've talked to a lot of people in my small town who have said that if you get to the third interview in the process, you are almost guaranteed a job. It would be nice to have something to do so soon after graduating, and $30/hour starting off is a big step up from what I'm used to. It's a pain in the ass trying to get through all of these interviews though; the first 'interview' was actually an aptitude/attitude assessment where I had to answer about 300 questions in an hour. The second interview was an actual job interview in front of a panel of 3 representatives with technical backgrounds. The third interview is supposed to be a group assessment where I am placed in a group with others to solve problems while a panel of 15 people watch us like hawks...
