It just came out of beta and they did a headstart thing this weekend. It's alright I guess. I don't love it, it's pretty clunky.

Knowing what I know now, if I could go back and do college over again, here are some of the things I’d do differently.
As I’ve been updating my resume the last couple of weeks, I’ve been thinking a lot about where I am vs where I thought I’d be by now. Outside of my internships and my final semester, I wasn’t very productive in college and I feel like I’m paying for that now.
