Thread: Advice from University Graduates

    Gays don't lurk in the shadows waiting to anally violate you... !
    Actually I have heard stories of gay guys "date raping" other guys. I don't like the idea of my bunghole being spelunked while I'm under the influence. Plus most serial killers are homosexual. Look at Geoffrey Dahmer. I think I'd rather be raped than dismembered and then raped. (By the way, I don't have anything against gays. I just wanted to throw that out there.)

    Re: Advice from University Graduates

    going back to the original topic:
    when i got my BSEE degree i over-specialized in a field that
    had very few openings at the time. it toook me ten years to recover
    from my poor choice. so my recomendation:
    dont over specialize, because years from now theres no telliing
    whatt job skills will be in demand. xml, php, oracle,
    unix, building flatscreens or pids, who knows what will be in demand 5 or 10 years from now?
    also: multitask your life, being busy at work or school doesnt rule out
    being in a relationship at the same time. find a smart +/or cute babe!
    (because stupid +/or ugly ones will not improve with age)

    I think that after my degree, I will want to stay away from anything that has to do with IT, because I'll be able to learn it on my own anyway.
    Limit it because the position sucks ass most of the time.


    Imagine ......

    You are god. Only you can fix anything ever. Only you are smart enough to make decisions. You are infallible.

    Wake up now. Remove only the god part and thats IT. Now change the last part to "you are fucked from the beginning"


    IT can be fun, but most managers and company owners are not in the least techincally inclined. They jsut dont get what hoops IT guys have to go thru to meet their demands. Also plan on wearing alot of hats. Many not in the slightest technical.

    Yeah. I just graduated college, and I'm finding out that I might not even want to go into the field. Being forced to work on computers for 8 or more hours a day kind of leaves a bad taste in your mouth about computers. I think I'm gonna look for something just vaguely computer related, like a reactor controller in a power plant or something.

    And I love sleeping on the floor...but it also means that I can't bring any girls home.
    Why not?? You dont' need nothing for that matter.... ;D

    Do what you love doing.... I know I'm. I never get tired of working with computers even 12 hours a day or 14.... But if you do the thing you love doing it, you will be fine. Just because the field makes money and just because there is more jobs doesn't always mean it's a good job for you. If you don't like what you are doing, you will get tired pretty soon.

    Could you imagine kenshi, getting to work drunk, searching desperately for his box of donuts...the mental image is great. LOL

    He's my idol. We don't have any nuclear plants around here though, so I'll have to settle for coal.

    On second thought, I want to be the guy who opens and closes the floodgates at the dam. I could have some real fun with that.
