Hey my name is Phil.  I have been using TNB for a couple years.  I came across it during one of my last programming classes.  I graduated last summer at the age of 30, bc well I could make excuses but mostly because Life is short I had some fun.  I have a kid a wife. I like to program and learn. 
I am a testament to all of you C students out there that you can succeed.  Start studying calculus now.  Don't make excuses, prepare early and show up to class (teachers def care about that).  You wouldn't tell Bucky you skipped video 16 in your tutorial because you had something else to do.  He would probably banish you.  Just Kidding all seriousness I like programming anything to do with computers and tnb is awesome.
