My name is Carlos Barboza, and I tweet as @PetroEkos. I am 30 years old, and feel 100. I graduated HS Class of 1999, and shipped to the Marine Corps shortly after. I worked as a F/A-18 Hornet Motor Mechanic, and was honorably discharged in 2004. I attended the Universal Technical Institute for what I considered would become my new career, and within 1.5 years I was a Master Certified BMW Technician. This career only lasted about two years after that though, as the job and my integrity often seemed to clash. In 2007 I went back to school for engineering, and currently attend “THE” Louisiana State University. This year will be my last, and the experience so far has been magnificent. I declared minors in Computer Science and Geology, and look forward to learning programming and the ways of the earth. I recommend if you have any doubt, give school a try it is never too late. I originally started at the local community college, and transferred after the first year. I recommend taking classes that will easily transfer and eliminate some of the core requirements. Remember, the end justifies the means. Sacrifice while young, and rest when the old age catches up. And if you are older than me, do it anyways, it will never be too late. Enjoy my postings, and hope I can teach you something.
