Haha. I don`t know. What career do you get into with Canadian Studies? I took a Canadian Studies course as an elective..... I don`t know how you are doing a whole major on it :x
Hours spent partying: VastHours spent studying: VastHours spent sleeping: Not much
Can`t have all three ;)
If I were you, I would be saving my money and voting conservative. Just don`t tell your drinking buddies, though.
I`ve never thought of myself as a right-wing extremist. I`m actually a libertarian. However, if you consider John Locke, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, James Madison, and Abraham Lincoln to be extreme right-wingers, then I guess by your definition, I`m one, too.
etc etc etc. Ollie, you`re an intelligent American conservative in your 50`s. Why are you venting your extreme-right politcal views in a website called I-Am-Bored, mostly populated by youngsters, who are overwhelmingly liberal? Seems like a waste of your energy to me, speaking from personal experience.
Anyways, for what it`s worth, my stats:
Money spent on alcohol = $Vast, beyond countingCredit Card debt = $0Hours spent partying = Every spare hour I haveHours spent studying = VastMajor = Oil & Gas Exploration, BSc (Honours, 1st Class) and PhD. GPA = No idea how that works. I`ve written a few books and taught training courses to other geologists and engineers though, which must count for something. Scholarship awarded = $0Salary: Six figures, net, after tax. Political views = astoundingly, willingly liberal.
Long story short, It would have taken me 4 years to finish my degree.
After dropping out, and actually working in the field i was studding for, I got the job i was going to school for after 3 years.
So, I had gotten the full time job an entire year earlier than i would have had i continued school and graduated. Now, people who actually stayed in school, have to earn their experience to work where I work, taking them another 2-3 years for themselves, Now a few of them... WORK FOR ME>> Hahah.
was college worth it, F no.
...or this one.
npdarren, name me one Democrat today who would honestly agree with that statement.
If you to go a church-supported Bible college, you know what to expect. When you go to State U, though, you don`t expect to be told that capitalism is evil, all sex is rape, the US is a racist, sexist, fasçist, homophobic imperialist dictatorship, and that white men are Satan incarnate. Neither do you expect be forced into "sensitivity training" if you dare to disagree.
Yes, the "close-minded" street runs both ways, but it`s an eight-lane freeway going left and a bike path going to the right
Yes, they indeed called themselves republicans back then, but they resembled modern democrats. If you knew your history, you`d know that the modern demography of the Republican party was established in the election of 1896. Before then the "Republicans" were in every way identical to today`s Democrats.
Maybe you should actually read up on your history before inventing your own biased version of it.
there are many things that can go wrong. with each. what`s wrong with partying? well, some people go overboard, and they don`t go to classes anymore. what`s wrong with technology? nothing, unless you`re being that one bitch in the lecture hall that starts talking loudly about what she`s going to do five minutes outside of class. that`s pure annoying.
actually nothing is wrong with bowling and winemaking. i retract that there is anything wrong with bowling and winemaking. if there have been accidents with that, id love to hear of them.
but alcohol? really? in and of itself, it`s just a substance, and so a general statement like what is wrong with IT can be answered with "nothing" and be legit. but it makes people stupid. a guy got drunk and shot his friend the other
um, people who take challenging classes, dumbass.
also Stunami is right, and so is Solobueno
I`m Luke too. You make me mad. Change your name now!
Oregon State is going to beat your mormon team in the Vegas Bowl.
ps, why have mormons play in the Vegas bowl? They hate Vegas
I went Nevada. My mom and pop forked out about $2,000 a year on my dumb ass.
We each get paid the exact same. He`s 37, I`m 27.
He knocked up a whore blonde. I`ve been to 13 different countries.
He sucks, I rule!
but I don`t major in Canadian Studies...
In other words, some people want to learn strictly for self-centered personal gratification, not so they can make a valuable contribution to society -- said value determined by the fact that someone is actually willing to pay money in exchange for said contribution.
That`s fine. I have no problem with that. Just pay for it yourself, and don`t ask me to subsidize your selfish consumption of educational resources through my taxes.
Starting salary of ivy league grads in the major majors (engineering, law, business) are usually in 6 figure ranges. Of course, there are always your writing/philosophy majors that pull the salary down.
I want to argue with Judge Judy!!
And the filibuster was made by Russell who even though had a D in front of his name he was a Liberal as Spector is conservative. Hence him leading the Conservative Coalition with the Republican party for decades.
Wow a right winger that has no concept of facts.....color me shocked!
Who is stifling independent thinking? Ask any conservative who has tried to speak on a college campus and been shouted down and assaulted by "open-minded" liberals.
Now THERE is someone who knows how to party!
The REASON for that is people like YOU have idiotically convinced far too many young people that science is uncool and for "liberals." You can`t scream from one side of you mouth "Climate science has been totally corrupted by international socialists" and then at the same time express confusion about why fewer people are becoming scientists.
Exposure to new ideas is by definition "liberal." Resistance to change and preservation of the status quo is by definition "conservative." Hence why conservatives don`t go into acadamia or the sciences - because those fields are full of exposure to new ideas, and force one to reassess one`s view of the world. For conservatives, they already completely understand the world, and in fact resist all change.
Hey, calm down. You`re what, a 27 year old guy already married and complaining about what kids today consider fun? Look, college is in part about those who do these things (and I am not saying these aren`t stupid things to do) and either fail at life or grow the hell up and move on. What I think is depressing is a guy nearing thirty spitting the word "poo" three times in a post on IAB on a subject which no longer even applies to him.
Wow, dude, for someone who loves the word "indoctrination," have you considered the sources of your own indoctrination? You spout talking points straight from the mouth of Limbaugh, and you probably think you came up with the "Liberals are evil" screed all on you own.
That isn`t "independant thinking," thats just evidence of the other side of the "indoctrination" coin.
"History" is a soft subject? Of course conservatives don`t want to remember history - its too profitable to repeat it. Plus, you don`t want to remember all those "liberal" achievements, like racial integration and ending slavery. DAMN THOSE LIBERALS AND THEIR DESIRE TO PROTECT CIVIL RIGHTS!
If it wasn`t for "liberal indoctrination," people like you would still be denying seats at the lunch counter to blacks. Conservatism at its best...
I am very career-oriented, and am probably hurting other aspects of my life because of it (such as social life, which I have next to none of). It really boils down to the meaning one wants to have in life, which is a personal philosophy. It`s not easy to judge people based on their passion in life. Just like how I am focused on making money and setting myself up for a stable and safe life down the road, there are some people who set themselves up for a different path, which they think is right. To each their own (though it would be nice if we got more productive members of society, what are you going to do?).
"but I`ll love what I`m doing. :)"
That`s how you win life right there.
Not everyone considers this kind of faggot ass child poo fun. Good on ya if ya do, but not everyone does. Don`t drating tell me that I`M wrong for not doing that kind of poo when I would rather shove a red hot fire poker down my dick hole than do any of that bullpoo teenager garbage.
College: you`re doin` it right.
that`s what happens when you use your head america, take example from the asians.
either way there`s an active way of going to school and a passive way thats too long to explain butif ur going to college its likely because u want to make more money and have a good time so look at wat majors are making the best money or wat fields are hiring the most and see what fits you bestgo to parties, meet people, have fun, get caught smoking weed in the dorms, drat a girl you don`t know...these are the last 4 years of relative freedom you`ll have until you retire
The education they provide is mostly worthless, politically correct crap. Most English majors can`t diagram a sentence, conjugate a verb, or compose a coherent paragraph, but they can all tell you Bush sucks.
Soft subjects, such as sociology, political science, gender and ethnic studies, history, education, and economics, are nothing more than left-wing political indoctrination, and the hard sciences are starting to fall as well. Climate science has been totally corrupted by international socialists whose goal is to transfer $trillions from the US to 3rd-world dictators by perpetrating a hoax.
After these kids graduate, what can they do that`s of any use? Who the hell want`s to hire an anti-American Marxist or a pissed-off feminist? They should be grateful to be serving coffee or making telemarketing calls; they`re not even well qualified for that.
I`ve always been a firm believer in college is important if you are desiring a job that actually requires the learning and training that`s found in a 4-8 year degree.
Why waste 40k+ in 4 years to be a store manager.
And I`m with hyybruce - isn`t that what the internet is for?
Money spent on alcohol = $0Credit Card debt = $0Hours spent partying = 0Hours spent studying = 0Major = Computer Science and EngineeringGPA = 3.95Scholarship awarded = $14,000 a year
Then it will be worth your money.
