Art & design. I actually looked forward to going to that class.
I was an economics major. But I did better in music and history courses than I did in economics.
I think you are both gay based on the available evidence.
My degree is in American Politics with a focus in cultural diversity. It's even more useless than it sounds.
"Focus in cultural diversity"
That made me laugh. They charged you money to brainwash you. Funny.
I know, I want to go back in time and smack myself. My college roommate who majored in mechanical engineering is making 4X more than me. I can't even deal with cultural diversity in a practical sense. I just plain don't like THOSE people.
On the other hand, he has to move from mine site to power plant site every couple of years. Meanwhile my job is based on nepotism and I get to stay in my lovely house and post on Dawg's. I have no regrets.
"Cultural Diversity" is a codename for "attack on white people."
I'm sure you didn't spend ten minutes in college valuing anything from Europe. You were taught that the mud people had some sort of moral superiority because they still carry water on their heads and die from diseases that white people conquered 2,000 years ago.
Quit justifying your shitty situation. It's never too late to learn a valuable trade or skill. Engineers don't make THAT MUCH. I come from a family full of Engineers. My one brother has a Masters in Mechanical Engineering, an MBA and is a VP for a fast-growing company. Guess what? I still out-earn him and I have two stupid Liberal Arts degrees.
My other brother got lucky and worked hard with his Business degree. He's making crazy money with an Internet company and his own website. Probably banking $400K per year or so.
Get into Sales. I literally received job postings yesterday for two dozen Sales positions.
Who peed in your Kool-Aid this morning, Lazy? Does someone need a hug?
Not at all. OK, maybe a little bit annoyed.
I get pissed that colleges will charge a small fortune to impart this useless information to young kids, and then the kids find that their $150,000 spent on "education" is actually worthless and they're stuck making $37,000 per year for their lives while they try to pay back massive student loan debt.
The last company I worked for pays outside Salespeople between $120K - $400K per year and the Salespeople really do very little. The Inside Salespeople are paid $75K-$100K per year and actually work harder, if you consider sitting in an office for 35 hours per week "hard."
Where I work now there are two of us who've brought in over $20,000,000 in new work over the last few months, and the company's owner is crying because he'll have to spend money on these projects. Ummm...yeah. You'll have to spend money to bank $4,000,000+ in profit. Wahhhh. I just want to be a millionaire without any work....wahhhh.
I TOTALLY get you man. I started college in early September of 2001. Something happened that month that put current events and international relations right in my cross hairs. I can't remember quite what that event was, but it influenced my thought process at the time. I went down what was a very interesting path and I learned quite a bit about history and politics.
Ultimately, I make my money online, but I don't regret my education or feel that I was lied to or anything. In my experience, high-level college courses were about defending your ideas reasonably, and that translates to every aspect of life.
I totally get that, and I agree with you.
I was just trying to be a smart ass....
You're young. Do not settle. College doesn't matter unless you're on a career track which requires pre-requisites (medical, for example).
If you're intelligent and willing to work hard, you can have a big house, nice stuff, and a cozy retirement. But you have to work for it.
It really wasn't that. We spent weeks interviewing multiple refugees from the former Yugoslavia and dissecting the conditions that led to that mess. We spent months learning about the specifics of these conflicts and many others. It's never as simple as black and white, dude. I'm not trying to antagonize you. There is a vast patchwork of humanity that doesn't boil down white and black or good and bad. It's a big nightmare. If I learned anything from my degree, it's that I don't know shit and I can't do anything but get my money. I went into college as an idealistic pothead and left as a jaded pothead. I fucking GET it, man. I get it. I display my degree in my bathroom, framed nicely over my toilet. Let's just get back to Howard bashing.
Fair enough. I wish you good hunting.
strongest subject? doing as little as possible while still pulling an a minus. its called "life": surviving while expending as little unnecessary energy as you can.
History, I love it. It's completely ridiculous given my make up, but I always thought history professor would be a great job.
It's ridiculous how many people, especially this young generation, don't get this.
what was the color of your fav backpack?
