broseph158833dWait how did Computer Science and Aerospace scholarship turn into web development again?
stackodev974033d@broseph I got the scholarship in 1991. I had always dreamed of being an astronaut and I had applied for it under the encouragement of my science teacher. I was one of only four in my whole state who was awarded. The university was seeking to make a space sciences major and this was part of that. So I still had to declare a major and I chose CS. But my college freshman year I took way too many credits and got a bad GPA so I lost the scholarship.
I transferred to a college closer to home and switched to a business computing major partly due to my newly diagnosed dyscalculia. My badness at math was going to be a major liability if I had wanted to be an astronaut. It’s my life’s greatest regret but what could I do? Still, I’ve had a pretty good career in web design/development. Much less math than flying shuttles or calculating rocket trajectories. :)
