Bragging Rights

My grandaughter who is something of a no nonsense tech genius will be going to Austin, Texas for the summer as a paid intern to Samsung. It is all about semi conductors. They hire from their intern pool so it may lead to a job with them.

I love that child so much. She is a natural beauty who never wears makeup and cares little about clothes. She is at home in a pair of jeans and a tee shirt. She does not have a vain bone in her body, which is unfortunate because she could be drop dead gorgeous with very little effort. This year marks the last of her hard engineering courses at O.U. and next year she will graduate with an easy academic load. She saved the easy courses until last.

I am awe stricken by the young women of today. I met a pretty young psychiatrist last week and just couldn't believe she had her medical degree and her residency behind her and was already working in her field. Laura, my grand daughter who is in New York city amazes me with her willingness to live hand to mouth until she can get a foot hold in fashion design. These girls have so much more energy and drive to succeed than I had at the same age.

I am proud of them all.

It is a new day for our girls.

That's impressive. She'll do well. Her degree is electrical engineering? or software engineering?

Her degree will be in chemical engineering. All this drive must be a
new thing for women and it is about time!!

I think it is because no one told the girls they couldn't do they did!

You know Adrienne. She is so focused.

How lovely to have a wonderful family and they are all so achieving. Also, I too foomfed my way through my early life -- no goals just hangin'. I caught up later. Being married to my first husband, the genius, helped. Had to play catch up.

You and I were not born in the right time. I have no doubt if we had both been born just twenty years ago we would do wonders.
