John Mizell’s Graduation Announcment

Howdy! Buenos Dias!
I would like to inform y’all that after 7 years I will be graduating from the University of Arizona with an Engineering Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering Management with a minor in Material Science Engineering. I was surprised as well to hear the news.
I started my career at Arizona pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Astronomy and Physics in 2001. In 2005 I explored the degrees of Science Educations as well as Engineering Management. Last spring I officially changed my degree to Engineering Management, which is a hybrid degree combining business and management with systems and an engineering of choice. This past year I have elected to spend my time taking material science engineering courses. This spring I officially added a minor in Material Science Engineering to my degree. Along the way I also enjoyed the opportunity to interact with students throughout campus via my work within the residence halls, through the student government, writing terrible letters to the news paper, and in my work successfully starting four different campus organizations. Perhaps one of those experiences will land me a job.
After commencement in May I will still need to fulfill two requirements for my program. I will conclude a short internship with Rain Bird in June and I will need to complete a second semester chemistry laboratory course before August. My official graduation will be August 14, 2008 (Happy Birthday Mom), at which point I will have accumulated almost 180 units, some good, some bad.
I’d like to thank everyone for supporting me though my long career here and for giving me just enough hell to keep me truckin’. Without y’all I doubt I would have ever found myself close to acquiring my degree, as task which as not been the easiest for me to complete. I have yet to create my plans for beyond August and am highly susceptible to suggestion.
If you’d like to celebrate with me, commencement is scheduled for Saturday, May 17, 2008 here in Tucson and I’ll be hosting a BBQ that weekend. You’re welcome to stay in my home here in Tucson, as there is plenty of running water, cool floor tiles, and hammocks, all perfect for napping after long days in 100 degree heat.
Thank You All,

Tests, Happy People, and New Blogs

First Round of tests for the semester.
The reason I hate school is now.

Found a very nice happy person in these last few weeks and that is a great addition to my day.
The reason I like people is her.

A recent move of my organ from the garage to my living room has reinspired restoration and along with it chronicals of my journy thus far, followed by my journey in the future.. I’m all about the future. Similar to my Tucson Palapa Build, this one runs as my Tucson Organ Build. Check it out, then come over and help me! please?
The reason I workhard is this.

First Days Back in the Saddle

It’s been a long time since I’ve sat, studied, cared. It’s good to be back. It’s good to see people who are excited to do well, to interact with people who are intelectual, to ride my bike to campus with purpose instead of just because that’s all I know.

Weekend before school begins…


Friday, the week before I begin my 5th year at The University of Arizona. I’m taking the least number of units in my career so far, I’m an ASUA Club Advocate, and President of three clubs on campus. My game plan is to ace my classes, but we’ll see how that goes. So far, that’s been my game plan since I stated attending this school.

I’ve been thinking about getting a notebook computer for the last month. Last week I decided on one I liked. Today I bought it. Next, I get to pay it off through out the school year. I anticipate it will help greatly with my balance between home and school. I won’t be reliant on getting home for information. I’ll have it with me at school. Plus, my desktop is slowly becoming a beast of a machine that is failing. Fortunately my monitor is still working wonderfully and my laptop has DVI so I can connect the two quite easily. I look forward to being able to move away from staring into the corner when ever I work on the computer. YEAHH!

I think now I will move my computer into my room….

The End.
