Well sounds like you spent your money in college on something that is atleast marketable. So thats good. I am of two minds on it. I think you should ofcourse study something that truly interests you but at the same time you need to prepare yourself with the skills necessary to make a living too. I had a friend who got a degree in medevil European history... and wasn't planning on being a teacher. I'm sorry as interesting as it might be, I am personally very interested in history, but what exactly are you going to do with that? Dont even get me started on people who go with gender studies....

I went with sociology, because it fascinates me and I wanted to be a social worker and solve the worlds problems! I got a job in the government full of energy and the desire to help only to have reality slap me in the face and grind me down with hopelessness, bureaucracy, and real life. It didn't matter how much I wanted to help or how hard I worked I couldn't accept the fact that most of the people I was trying to help would be dead or in prison or in a state maybe worse than either. Particularly since most were children and I could see myself only helping a handful of them. For me that was not enough, the ones I couldn't help were the ones that ate away at me. I am too sensitive and I care to much for that kind of work. I certainly didn't want to be beaten down like my coworkers where I became hardened to it in order to protect my own sanity. So I got out. My father had insisted I get what he called a more "useful" degree in case my sociology thing didn't work out. I guess he knew me better than I knew myself.

Well I think you have the right attitude. First is survival then comes your dream. Only a very few lucky people are going to come out of college and fall into their dream job. You get a job to keep the lights on and food on the table and you keep looking until you find the right opportunity or something you truly enjoy. I thought when I was young I would be a career woman like my sister is now. But I find myself now nearly 40, and I just want to be Mom. My mother was a nurse her entire life, and my sister doesn't understand me.

Life story part :P


So anyway I tell you all that not to make a point that my hurts are bigger than your hurts and toughen up young man, but to just say that there is no perfect way to handle things and even if you muck it all up like I did in the beginning, you can always come back from it. Ask for help if you need it, get advice from people you trust, and always remember that tomorrow could be better than today. And even if it isn't then the day after that!

I think I meet all of their requirements right now. Honestly we have saved up enough and invested the money we had smartly enough we could honestly retire right now. Right now the only thing holding me back is my kids. My son is still young enough that honestly it wouldn't bother him at all. But it would be a bigger adjustment for my daughter. Its about 50/50 right now.

You're back!

uh hi there
Skadi Oct 2, 5:17 PM
Oh well thats exciting, the graduating thing ofcourse. Hopefully you will find something stimulating soon. It took me a while to find my own way. I spent a lot of time in school getting my degrees thinking I knew what I wanted only to burn out on it in less than 2 years, tried several other things and fell into something completely unrelated to anything I studied for something I wouldnt have even needed to go to school for at all lol. And now I dont work at all and just stay home and raise my kids. Well I have my own business now doing real estate, renting mostly which has pretty much become a full time job. But you never know where life will take you!

I dont know what your issues are but believe me I have my own dark skeletons too I had to overcome. There is always a light at the end though, just dont give up until you find it or the hand that will lead you to the way.

For me.. well I am deeply considering moving right now. I would have if not for my kids so I am torn. I have had some bad experiences here in the last few years and Sweden is no longer the home I used to love. My parents have died and I have only my sister to whom I am not particularly close too. We went to New Zealand over summer for holiday and I have always loved the region. I have a bid for some property down there where I could build a nice house and just get away from everything. At the very least we could retire to there. I am looking into applying to live there so I havent really decided. I hate to leave because I have everything I always wanted here with my current home.

ye we delete them once we done with them
RoryBurrows Oct 2, 12:54 PM

Skadi Oct 1, 5:03 PM
:0 Long time. What have you been doing?
PonPonPon Oct 1, 12:58 PM
Damn, that's rough. What kinds of jobs are you looking for? Getting a job right out of college is brutal. Everyone wants 5 years of experience, but no one is willing to give you that experience. I know quite a few guys who were extremely qualified from an academic/side project perspective but because of lack of professional experience, they took months (up to a full year) to find something. It's a fucked system.

Are you going to networking events and such in the meantime? I did a lot of those during college trying to find internships and they helped. Sadly, connections seem to matter more than skillset and intellect when looking for a job...

But maybe that would be a nice way to finish your career. Of course I'm not saying that you should do so :p. Then I guess I'm gonna watch all the three movies one day.

Right I'm gonna add those movies to my list too, but what is SSS? I haven't even finished the first season of Code Geass. I kinda got stuck on the 3rd episode and just couldn't go through it. I plainly hated the character design... the art was just wrong. Simply wrong, and the story wouldn't recompensate me the visuals. It wasn't like Higurashi or Shiki where I also didn't like the art, but story was making up for it.

Well crap, it's kinda bad that you didn't have a change to gain some work experience while you were still in college. Where I live it's kinda impossible now not to have any experience in the field where you wanna be a professional after you graduate from college. So I hope that if I don't get a full-time job option after my internship is done, then I guess I have a good lookout for the future. My resume ain't gonna look bad. At the moment I'm right halfway through it. So theoretically it's six more months for me being there as an intern. Then if the say I fit in and the project I've been working on turns out fine and profitable for the Company, then I guess I nothing's gonna stop me from staying there. But yeah, there are also everchanging market sitatutions and stuff that can cross my plans haha.

What sort of job?

Are you on Discord?
Deathwave Sep 28, 10:27 AM
That's true I guess. What about the Evangelion movies, you don't want to review them? And also how did you like them, in terms are these any good to someone who had seen the original TV series, is it like an alternative story? The Heaven's Feel is going to be a first part of 3 movies, right? The first one is coming out on February 2018, so with the translations I might watch it next summer haha. Well there's still plenty of anime for me to watch. At the moment I think I'm in the mood to watch, but now most of the shows are actually boring to me. Lots of 6... I need more good shows in my life haha.

It actually sucks a lot, I feel bad for you, but do you get any feedback why they don't want you? Maybe your resume isn't attractive enough. I dunno tbh. In the meantime I have changed a job, I'm halfway through my internship programme and it is a lot of fun.
Deathwave Sep 27, 10:17 AM
Yeah, your list says so. I thought that you have watched Cowboy long time before I did. It was a very fine anime, classic indeed. Well, don't you want to mark off all the 182 anime you have on your list first? It could take a lot of time probably.

Yeah, so are you still struggling with the job?
Fleure Sep 26, 8:48 PM
Just confirming the return of a legend.

But yes, I am indeed still out 'there'

Basically DO medical schools are private institutions unlike most MD medical schools. They are easier to get into on average, but a lot more crazy shit can happen and your student loans are insane. After my experience, I would recommend retaking the MCAT and holding out for an MD med school rather than trust a DO one. Then again, my classmates are mostly doctors now and doing great. My own experience was unusual. Then again, I have Tourette's Syndrome with OCD and I'm kind of an unusual case myself.
