Thanks for your reply. I think I understand the meaning of #5 now and know an area I may need to focus on. In the right environment (when you find it) those around you will eventually get used to the fact that you are brief, to the point, and do not "beat around the bush". This is an advantage in go...

yes, except my grades have been pretty good and now i am getting back into computers. i think it's important to accept that you can't accomplish everything in computers. i have had to do that. i will probably not singlehandedly write a program that passes the turing test. most likely you will be wor...

antidepressants work to reduce the jaw pain if it is caused by stress. i am diagnosed with tmj and some anxiety. i can vouch for that. a low dose may be all you need, if jaw pain is your only issue.

Just noted it because Mason had two economics noble prize winners. jerry hatake and alex plank also go to george mason. My s/n isn't my real name but anyway you go to Mason too? No, I don't go to GM, but I have looked at some of their computer science research before and happened to notice that you...

I hope that before dropping those classes you had a reasonable, strong feeling that you were going to get an F in both of them. I've dropped a couple of classes before for stupid reasons besides grades, and I wish I had not been so hasty about doing so.
