Proof that hard work does in fact pay off (sometimes): I got an A in both my Theoretical Foundations of Computing and Tech Writing classes!
It seems that I've subconsciously devoted my life to proving everyone wrong, whether it's my mom telling me I'm charming and witty, my freshman adviser telling me I'm not computer science material and I couldn't pass Calculus, or my major adviser telling me "no, really. Drop computer science." and saying I couldn't excel in any of my classes. For I am Cody Gibbs, the destroyer of expectation and the harbinger of hope.
Also, if someone could, tell me that I cannot become a self-made millionaire by the time I'm 30. I could use the money right now (studying doesn't pay well).
