Capstone - A Look Back

Well, this is my last official blog entry that I need to do for Capstone. I'll certainly keep blogging to let everyone know what I'm up to and to see what everyone else is up to. Overall, Capstone has been quite an experience for me. I remember sort of dreading it in my previous college years because once you're in Capstone it seems like you're officially getting ready for the real world. Now, I really don't know what exactly I was dreading. Graduation is upon us and I absolutely can't believe I'll be leaving here in two weeks. I still have a couple of papers and presentations to do, but, for the most part, I'm nearly finished. It's been a long, hard road, but I made it.

My senior presentation was on Monday night, and I think it went VERY well. I was prepared for it, but not too prepared to the point that it sounded rehearsed. I wasn't nervous to give it at all. I don't exactly know why, but I wasn't. My parents were in the audience along with a few of my friends, so I guess I just felt like I was talking to them. Overall, the BC Festival was a great day. We did a lot of interesting things on campus, and the presentations were all very good.

I'd like to thank the BC Capstone class and Mr. Weaver for going on this journey with me for the past four years. I wouldn't have wanted to be with anyone else for it. I've learned so much and I know I'm prepared for whatever life can throw at me. So from myself to the world: HERE I COME! This is Ian Durham...signing off...for now...
