What was your thesis, Steve?

I'm in an accelerated Master's program at Purdue -- instead of writing a thesis, you take an applied statistics exam and prepare an oral defense of your answers. My written part was still something like 12 pages and a Powerpoint, though, so it's almost as long as a thesis would've been.
Though, if I were to write a thesis, it'd be on the probabilistic/Bayesian side of poker strategy. No, really.

In twelve hours' time, I'll have officially completed my first year of college.

So I guess there's a good chance I'll be living on campus, so as to get full tuition as opposed to 75%.

Of course, room and board costs mean that it's not quite that simple, but it still works out to be slightly cheaper.

Does that mean you'll finally be able to play M-rated games?

Actually my parents seem to have finally loosened up about that, perhaps because they can't maintain the facade and still expect me to attend college this year.  I'm playing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood on my PS3 and Parasite Eve on my laptop.

Ahh, same over here. It would cost less for me to stay on campus than live at home and commute everyday. As of now, I'm completely debt-free for my freshman year.

Did you skip the first two ACs? That seems kinda weird.

I played the second game, but everyone I talked to who recommended the series also recommended that I skip the first game because it's... mega repetitive?  Apparently?  Anyway, yeah.

You're missing out bigtime. Too late for that though I guess.
