Welcome to the Forum, Ryan

If Alan Turing was alike the role they did in the movie, he must have been a very interesting person.
Great dream job idea - go for it!
Also nanomaterials reads fascinating. Like creating new and fancy structures.

Hope you guys find a path through all the homophobic parents stuff. I know this can be a pain.

Welcome Ryan,

Cool to hear you found someone and that both of you had each other for support in coming out to your parents. Hope you hang around the forum and find it worth it.
