Yes. Got a bio degree, thank god every day for what I know that so many others are completely ignorant of. Some of the 'easy' classes (ie gen ed) were useful, like communications. Everyone dunks on communications but it's like hackig human behavior and has way more use in general society than 90% of the other bullshit degrees (journalism, english, etc.) Other gen ed classes insulted my intelligence and were like sub-HS level, and the kids were fucking idiots, wouldn't make it past two weeks in any of my science courses.
Didn't get a job out of it but that's half my fault/life situations, science dgrees usually have low unemployment. Only regret was not taking a harder or more focused major as biology is sort of 'soft ball' as far as sciences go (it covers the most disciplines since it involves all of the other courses) so the education is more general than others. But I know all sorts of shit that's helping me out right now with my "job."
Avoided all of the 'queer studies' courses by taking 'asian american literature' which was absolutely retarded.
As far as this mythical 'college experience' of partying and drugs and sex, got fucking none of that because the college I went to was full of lesbians and rape fearmongers and tbh anyone that was a partier was pretty much gone after freshman year.
Also went to a state college, so enrollment was automatic based on SAT scores (never did any community service/'well rounded individual' bullshit, didn't have to) and my debt's going from 20,000 to 10,000 due to the recent aid. Have put about 5 grand into it over the years and it all went to interest. I recognize as well the actual cost paid for me going was way higher than that due to matching funds and government funds and whatever the uni makes from foundations and alumni groups. As far as I'm concerned it should have been free like it used to. Fucking conservative cunts whining about college students generally have no clue what they're talking about.
My english class was hard because the teacher was some fat ultra-feminist bitch. We used to write 'responses' to fucking "this american life" and she had us draw pictures for one of the assignments. Only took it because I refused to take AP english because I liked reading too much and didn't want to take that sort of rote-memorization and cliff notes approach to literature.
Then the fuckers also made me take pre-calc when I'd gotten a 5 on the AP calculus test, based on taking Math II SATs because I thought I was good at math due to said test and completely flamed out.
The problem with college is you're too young to know what the hell is going on and can't tell if you're being mishandled or whatever by incompetent administrators. They really do not give a shit about you.
Last I heard one of my distant relatives is still doing well as a chemist for drug companies.
Think at first she wanted to be something silly like an ocean biologist.
I don't even remember what we did in my English class. It was run by a black guy that was thin and very professional.
It was a morning class sooo zzzz makes it harder to remember.
The next semester English teacher was a girl and she was way more strict.
Well as a matter of fact I'm going to college for a welding course and then a construction course after and then maybe an electricians course but depending on finances I'll be also going for my security license through a school in town while also taking my use of force and more so I can do the big jobs. Either way got class on November 10th
My ex-bf was going to go into welding. I've heard its great money, specially if your doing it on ships/military ships.
But he gave up on it. Also said he didn't like how looking at the flame all the time can mess with your color vision in the long run.
That's what I went for, biology 'with marine emphasis.' The problem is that thanks to sea world the major gets absolutely flooded with women who want to study whales, so it's 'competitive' because whales are like .001% of the ocean and most of them end up in other fields, and when you're in a system that's based on some old, married professor making personal decisions about who they're going to 'take under their wing' they're a lot more liable to pick someone with nice tits. There's like a 2:1 gender discrepency in the sciences.
My life just sort of fucked itself over at the end and I just got through and out. When you hear about a job where there's 20 applicants, and the guy that had a full scientific paper under his belt didn't get hired because they basically already had their own undergrads picked out… you realize it's entirely about being 'connected' and has nothing to do with merit. In other sciences they're hurting for people. If I'd kept going would have specialized in genetics… right now would probably go back for something agriculture related if I could.
Being a woman is life on easy mode.
Robotic engineer always sounded fun. But probably has limited demand too.
That's why you are supposed to learn real things like welding engineering etc all these things have nothing in common with the choices some make which are simply fluff courses to top off a resume so you can be top candidate in whatever job you start with. I mean I myself love archeology and everything to do with it it's a dream career for me and its a lot of work to get there, unless you know some shortcuts or whatnot to avoid a lot of wasted time going through school for at least 5 years which I say is a big waste of time when you can simply study enough write enough papers maybe make some discoveries etc.
thats why social work is so much more lucrative in the job market.
im working on a mix of SW and psych work. Both Masters.
Steam was banned from Discord for being a psychotic faggot. He's got to get his validation somewhere.
your posts suggest otherwise.
What makes archeology super hard to get into? I've often heard it can be pretty hard.
When I was little I had those fossil dig kits with fake coins and shells and stuff. And that was fun.
Same with the build your own electronics kits.
Just stop stalking me stalker.
Welding is a labor job. You make decent money but it's going to repetitive stress you out of work eventually. Engineering is a joke too tbh, engineers usually wind up training their replacements, though the field is so huge there's probably good engineer careers and terrible ones.
Now archaeology… basically the same as marine biology, advanced summer camp for rich kids and professor's wives. I'd argue it doesn't teach much that's going to be useful in life, and it's not a hard science so very little math or anything else unless you're a specialist, in which case you'll have a degree in that specialty. I'd rather waste my time as an anthropologist/ethnographer or something.
And those are loads better than the other pointless degrees out there.
If you want a good choice I'd agree psychology is a) useful (any degree which gives you a step up in understanding either yourself or the world around you in a specific way and not just as some publish or perish professor's keyword based 'framework' is useful imo) and b) lucrative and easy to find work. Any human services job.
Coding of any sort though is probably the most valuable thing you can go to school for or learn yourself.
One thing I always hear is go into a trader over college.
Plumbers and stuff can make good money.
I've been to college multiple times.
I got kicked out of my first college, culinary school for apparently killing rats in satanic rituals. Not entirely sure how that came to be a thing, but I was banned from AI Cincinnati either way.
Then I went to get an I+E cert from a tech school, not college but whatever.
Then I got a degree for "switching systems" from the community college of the air force, basically not worth the money the degree was printed on.
Then Electrical engineering from Ohio State. Turns out engineers are kinda close knit, and I got fed up with being treated like shit 24/7 because I didn't want to tongue Hillary's ass. Also engineers do not understand the gay thing, its like everything you do is either hitting on them in their minds, or slighting them. Now I know what its like to be a girl… kinda… not really.
This psychology thing isn't even for a job, I don't actually intend on ever perusing it, I'm just a pissy gay guy who really wants to understand why and how people doe the things they do. Even this is so infuriating.
Being a straight white male war veteran (never got deployed but I have a ribbon that says I joined during a war period, so suck it) it really shitty business when going into psych. Its always women complaining about not understanding what men think and I'm like "hello man here, able to tell you what men think" that gets shut up because I'm gay, then 30 minutes later I get asked for a man's opinion on something and I get catty and I'm like "girl what you need to do is really trample his masculinity and then buy him boxed wine to make up for it, like every day"
Yeah I'm not a good person

I went to community college, which was alot more affordable.
