Microsoft MVP - Thank you!

Wow.... that's really all I can say!

I'm going to take this time to give an extremely large thank you to everyone. I'd first like to of course start out by thanking everyone who has nominated me, it means an unbelievable amount to me. I cannot express how much it means to be nominated by a Microsoft MVP in general, but how much more it means to be nominated by people you learned from. To know that the people you once learned from now believe you have 'grown enough' to become an MVP yourself is absolutely mind blowing.

The MVP award to me is extremely important because debugging is not just a passion, but rather an extremely huge part of my life. I have gone from being simply interested in debugging ~2 and a half years ago, to wanting it to be involved in my every day working life. I have learned so much in the time I have been debugging, but there is so much I still do not know, and that's the beauty of it all.

In my life, what makes me happy is helping other people. The fact that I was able to combine my love for debugging, and actively helping people across various communities, has truly made an extremely positive impact on my life. Even more that I have been recognized and awarded for it by Microsoft is a dream truly come true. I am beyond honored.

I'd like to extend a huge thank you to my friends as well who I interact with every day across all of the communities. There are far too many names to name, but you certainly know who you are. I love working with you all!

So again, thank you very much, and especially to the community for allowing me to work with you, and to help you. I hope I can wear the MVP badge well, and I hope I can make many new friends when Summit comes around.

....Now, time for more debugging posts : )
