Somehow, your mom actually thinks you’re just doing arithmetic like you’re just getting ready to teach grade school math. You are probably going to end up a math teacher but at least at a college level. You have to explain that it’s way more than that, for your ego alone!

B McGraw has lived a long and successful professional life as a software developer and researcher. After completing his BS in spaghetti coding at the department of the dark arts at Cranberry Lemon in 2005 he wasted no time in getting a masters in debugging by print statement in 2008 and obtaining his PhD with research in screwing up repos on Github in 2014. That's when he could finally get paid. In 2018 B McGraw finally made the big step of defaulting on his student loans and began advancing his career by adding his name on other people's research papers after finding one grammatical mistake in the Peer Review process.
