I moved to Boulder when I was 18 to get an engineering degree and ski my butt off.  By setting gates for the CU ski team I skied Eldora for free and I got in 75 days my freshman year to nail my second goal. With a few repeated classes, I squeaked through my first goal with an civil engineering degree a minor in computer science and even ended up going back for an MBA at CU later.

I always thought I’d move to Silicon Valley to develop and product manage commercial software. I never did and never will.
