I can confidently say that we’ve come a long way since I first met you during the CEW counselor days back in Summer 2011. You have such a carefree and welcoming personality; you can’t even say anything bad or make fun of someone in front of their face unless you’re intoxicated ;] I am so glad that our friendship grew through the multiple conferences, SWE and WECE meetings, SWE socials, and class we’ve had together. It’s been entertaining classifying Banerjee’s outfits with you on the days you actually went to Solid-State. You bring laughter to everyone around you; I honestly cannot think of even one instance when I haven’t at least cracked a smile when we were together. Don’t be too much of a robot, try not to “call it a quit” too many times at work, and don’t simultaneously jam and drive because we all know we risk our life every time when we get into your car. Keep this advice in mind, and you’ll be golden! Don’t forget about us, though. We won’t mind if you’re that one creeper professional who keeps coming back to SWE meetings!
Although I’m still in denial of you graduating right now, I know that you’re going to do such amazing things at NOV, and I cannot wait to hear all your stories about work and real life. LOVE YOU!
