As long as there's more than 3 competitors.
As a small addendum to my previous post, I found out that my team was awarded 3rd place in the competition between the 10 senior plant design teams. We will supposedly receive a small monetary award that will be divided among the 4 members of the team. I might get $60 out of it but that's not really the point to me. I am just very proud that three industry representatives felt that my team did better than 7 groups of our peers. That's pretty good in my book.
I've been thinking that it would be fun to get a "Graduation coin" to mark 1) the third place win, 2) graduating magna laude (which I should) and 3) the fact that it's finally over... Thank God.
I'm not entirely sure what that coin should be. I'd want it to be good/special without completely breaking my bank (account). I'm open to suggestions if the rest of you guys have any ideas. I had initially been thinking along the lines of Pre-1933 US gold in low mint-state (MS61-MS63), hopefully something near melt value.
Just for fun I'm trying to see if I can pick up a nice Civil War Token for a low price. You remember the civil war tokens? The things I initially thought were going to be a major focus for my collecting this last year? Yeah... I don't know what happened there either.
Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man but
It surely means that I don't know
On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune
But I hear the voices say
Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more,
Carry on, you will always remember
Carry on, nothing equals the splendor
Now your life's no longer empty
Surely heaven waits for you
