Hella YES!

Starting September I am going to be starting my MSc degree in elementary particle physics at University of Toronto!


(Yes, I am aware that announcing this makes me a really big nerd, but I don't care!)

It's an honour to do any post-graduate degree, but a physics degree at U of T? This is unbelievable! I get to try and unlock the mysteries of the universe!!

Ironic that after not showing up for so long, you felt it necessary to show up due to this. I can picture you now: "Masters program?!? I gotta' tell NN!!!"

That is awesome. Pls invent a machine that can cause everyone in the world to blackout, and in that blackout we can see our future.

Particle physicists are definitely not wizards. They're sorcerers. Peter, was it because of that thread that telepathically beckoned you back?

It is true that particle physicists are socerers of the highest order. In fact they are decendants of Merlin. Thanks to them, one day we would be able to see our future.

Actually, particle physicists are pretty primitive if you think about our methodology.

How do we figure stuff out?

Let's smash things together to break them and look at what's inside!!


But thanks, I think...

Thanks to all for the congratulations! Gotta be honest, though, I am terrified. This is going to be insane. I am going to love the next four years, but it's not going to be easy either.

Congratulations, and at the University of Toronto? Double Props. I won't be studying my masters anywhere near Canada xD Imma stay in my happy NY area after my last year of U.G. then go for Grad studies, havent figured out which school yet xD

This one will take me 3, and then might keep going after it. I'm all excited to be told that everything I thought I knew about the universe was wrong.
