A Walk Down Nostalgia Lane

Hello, my name is Robert Waterworth. The fantastic folks at Thinnox have bestowed upon me the honor of writing a blog for their website. This offer could not have come at a better time. As I am getting on in my years I've acquired a fair bit of experience and yet I'm still young enough to recall most of it, so I best make some notes while I can still remember it all. All joking aside, being asked to jot down my thoughts and experiences has made me stop and take stock of all the twisty roads my career has taken me.

First Few Days in The University

It was a mixture of fear and excitement. Things were finally going to change; everyone said that university would be the start of my real life. Was I ready? I'd sure find out. There was a sense of liberation in being able to have a key to my place that no one else had. None of us could get away with carefree and reckless actions anymore. We now had responsibilities and some version of a mission.

Our response: "we have no idea!"
