Alone in the House, What Does Self Do?

Naturally, watch TV (“Live! with Regis and Kelly”: the guest is Ivanka Trump. Looking at her in her brown sheath dress with a high slit on one side, and her extremely long legs ending in maroon high-heeled pumps, and her high blonde ponytail, self can only muster three letters: OMG.  She must have broken a million hearts when she announced she was getting married)

Naturally, read diverse stuff. Right now, on self’s lap, is the latest Cal Poly Physics Newsletter (Self forgot until now: son declared a minor in physics), which will also, according to an announcement on p. 6, be the last: the newsletter is “going green” and will only be sent electronically from now on.

Self is exceedingly curious to see what more recent Physics grads (Self is defining as “recent” anyone who graduated after 2000)  have done with their degree, so here goes:

  • AA (’00) is “a math instructor at Tommie Kunst Junior High School in Santa Maria.”
  • MB (’05) is a “Program Management Associate” at a startup called SolFocus.
  • CF (’04) “is currently working on a Ph.D. in Astronomy in U. of Heidelberg, Germany.”
  • PF (’08) “is a financial services professional working in Los Alamitos in Orange County.”
  • RG (’06) “has been accepted to Ph.D. programs at UCR in physics and U. of Arizona in optics” (So how does one pursue two Ph.D.s in two different places, self wonders?)
  • CH (’04) is “working on a Ph.D. in Applied Science Engineering at UC Davis.”
  • ML (’06) “is a systems engineer for space-based infrared systems and works at Northrop Grumman Electronic Systems.”
  • MLM (’05) “is a Knowles Science Teaching Fellow while finishing her third year as a physics teacher at North Central High School in Spokane, WA.”
  • TO (’07) “is living in San Diego and finishing his masters thesis on “Modeling the Power Output of Grid Connected Photovoltaic Arrays.”
  • BP (’04) “is a senior consultant at Vynamic Solutions Northwest in Washington.”

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.
