I've just finished and handed in my A level computing coursework which is a program I've wrote of an educational multiple choice game programmed in java with a mySQL back end (for those who know computing).

The whole code, javaDocs and write up (which includes entity relationship diagrams for database hierarchy diagrams and a detailed testing of final product) came to a grand total of 149 pages of A4.

I've put days into this often spending more than 5 hours a day working on it and have stopped myself from giving in and just playing guitar.

TBH What I'm saying is I'm proud of being able to put the effort in and do something to the best of my abilities. (My first draft of it I handed in was a B so the improved version should hopefully be an A *fingers crossed*)

Musically I'm probably most proud of some of my orchestral works and my prelude and fugue in C#minor (which I posted here)

So AGC what are you most proud of, in life, in music or both?

That's impressive DanielM!

I'm proud of my Degree in Graphic Design. I don't even use it in my career but I went to school for 2 years and worked full time. I worked from 7am to 4pm and went to school from 6pm to 10pm Mon thru Fri. Your right. It was the effort that I am most proud of. I also graduated at the top of my class!

Is pride like the opposite of self-loathing?

What am I proud of? Same thing you did. Programming is my life. Lemme show you what I spent an entire semester on.



As you can see... it wasn't very consistent :)

I think learning to walk and talk are pretty important things to have accomplished.

I built a microwave fireplace. I can't sit in front of the fire for the evening in 8 minutes.

@Jeff That course looks amazing, I'm planning on doing artificial intelligence and cybernetics which will focus on making intelligent robots etc.

One of the professors has implanted chips etc into his arm to control robots and to allow his own movements to be controlled, he's called kevin warwick if you wanna google and find out more.

@Null good trip or bad?

@gshred Was it like Judas Priest breaking the law? You just ran in and guitared him into submission?

One night our goalie did not show up, so I played goalie for an entire hockey game with normal skating gear. We won the game, and it was definitely a high point in my hockey carreer.

My ability to keep play "hungry". I usually play like I'm a beginner who's still striving to learn that one lick perfectly, and I practice everything like that. Over and over and over XD

@case211, that's impressive, I take it they were pretty douchish?

It was unbelievable the amount of people at my school that seemed to take it as a personal issue when I tried to find people to start a band with. In the end I just gave up, hopefully uni will be better :P

@DanielM

Yeah they were... you can watch the performance I had that night off of my youtube account. I played like sh** that night but it still warranted a hand shake and kudos from the soundman(not predjudiced, but he was black, and I played Megadeth covers... it was a very proud moment for me). The 3 bands were pointing me out to their buddies and trying to make jokes, but after my set they could only try to stare me down. A 5 foot nothing 20 something tried to stare me down because I needed to step outside and he was in the door way. Pathetic? a little... I probably really made em mad when I stayed for the poor soul who played a solo acoustic set(this is after I opened with Holy Wars mind you) and then bailed right as they were getting ready for sound check ;) hehehe

Sorry for the long post, but I'm not sure if I ever went into any sort of detail about the things that ensued my set that night haha

Graduating with my two degrees was a huge accomplishment in my life. I also quit smoking cold turkey about 5.5 years ago. It was one of the most difficult things I have ever had to do in my life. Musically, I played with the University of Michigan band as a junior and senior, when they took one percussionist and one brass player each year. It was a pretty big honor and my director kept trying to push me into music as a career, but he always failed to realize that it is nothing more than a hobby and even if I play inthe future locally (which would be cool to play in a jazz or blues band on guitar), it still would remain a hobby and nothing more. Hopefully my life will be filled with some more musical achievements in the future.

Hmm, I'd say i'm most proud of being a former national champion in sailing. Was such a massive achievement for me as I never felt I was properly good at anything. Either that or completely self teaching myself guitar to a reasonable standard (so far).
