December 6th, 2012 05:17 PMdream's-epilogueHow are you?
November 24th, 2012 04:29 AMSweet_DreamsWell, there's the whole moving into a new house next weekend thing. That does seem to suck up a surprisingly large amount of time.
And I'm also thinking of maybe getting into digital art. I got myself a graphics tablet but it hasn't arrived yet, and I'm kinda hoping it gets here before we move. '
November 24th, 2012 12:19 AMdream's-epilogueAhh, what kinds of things? If you don't mind me asking, that is.
November 20th, 2012 10:04 PMSweet_DreamsOh, I think I just have a guilty conscience.
I've been good. Strangely busy with things, considering I don't have school or anything.
November 20th, 2012 09:38 PMdream's-epilogueOh no no no, it's perfectly okay! I'm not upset or anything at all, and I wasn't messaging you about the PM ;
I just meant it as a casual vm conversation without it being too time-consuming like the pm >.> Not like the pm's going anywhere anyways.
So...how've you been?
November 20th, 2012 07:04 PMSweet_DreamsI keep neglecting you, don't I?
The short version of my PM is probably this: I love the whole idea and you seem to have thought about everything in a very in-depth manner, and my questions are starting to be more about the KH world than your adaptation in particular. But it all sounds amazing and very involved. And without asking about plot-specific things, which you appear to have planned out fairly conprehensively, despite your lack of idea about the villain, it all sounds perfectly awesome to me.
November 20th, 2012 06:05 PMdream's-epilogueSo how's things been going? >.>
November 15th, 2012 04:08 PMdream's-epilogueIt's okay, it's okay, really. Just didn't know if you got my messages or not. >.> By all means, take your time
November 15th, 2012 02:52 PMSweet_DreamsOh gosh, sorry. I've been a bit busy the past week, and I haven't really had more time to do anything other than keep up with my RPs and check things and stuff and this sounds like a really lame excuse because it is. Your PMs are too in-depth and interesting for their own good. XD
I'll get back to you soon, but I basically have to go like right now. Sorry!
November 15th, 2012 06:13 AMdream's-epilogueHi
October 28th, 2011 01:57 AMdream's-epilogueBut yeah, right now I'm stuck in a bottom-rung college trying to decide whether to stay the course with Psych and pray I by some miracle get a job in it, or change over to Sociology which is what everyone keeps telling me to do. supposedly, Socio is fundamentally similar to Psych, except with more jobs, less pay, and less prestige. It's a definite step down from Psych, and isn't entirely the same, but it's the same core ideas, so I'd at least be indirectly doing what I want to. This is, of course, assuming that I even could get a job in it; everyone is saying the market for it is strong and there's good demand, but I've been trying for over a year now to get a job and have had zero success, and I know some pretty damned smart people who are unemployed and are showing no signs of having that change, so it doesn't exactly inspire confidence. Not to mention that, since my scholarship is history, I'm making my way through on small-but-substatial loans, that I will have to pay back at some point.
tl;dr I'm putting myself steadily in debt in a career that's just a phantom, in both content and reward, of what I wanted to do with my life, and there's no guarantee it'll even lead to anything in the end. To say my future looks suckish would be an understatement and then some.
I've been eyeing other career possibilities, but none of them are really any improvement in terms of job availability. No matter what career I pursue, the odds of me getting a job, esp. considering the low-level college I'm attending, are not very good.
LATE EDIT: Didn't see your edit until just now. And two posts ago. >.> Yeah, I'm into it, thanks to a friend. Morel ike obsessed, but there are two major facets to my obsession. (I'll elaborate if you want, but it might get a little...rant-y.) What about you?
October 28th, 2011 01:35 AMSweet_DreamsAh, another reason for me not to do it at Uni then. Don't worry, it looks as though you really need to rant, and I'm willing to listen. And since it's all I can do, I'll attempt to listen very intently.
Are there any other career paths that are available/you're interested in? You're incredibly intelligent, so I think you'll manage to succeed whatever you end up trying to do - whether it be anything to do with Psych or not. It sounds like they really screwed you over, though.
October 28th, 2011 01:20 AMdream's-epilogueBah, at least you haven't burnt out. I'll try to keep this from getting too rant-y, but long story short, I got into an extremely prestigious (and expensive) university with one of the best Psych programs in the country, and managed to do so pretty much entirely on scholarship. Then before I'd even had my first day, they used a typo (not even an amount of money, a wrong date for crying out loud) to slash my funding by a redonkulous degree, to the point that I would essentially be driving myself into the poorhouse just to attend a single year. I ended up leaving, pissing away said scholarship in the process, and now I'm stuck at a far inferior college vainly attempting to pursue some form of career in Psych...which is a whole other story entirely. This is already long enough, so I'll spare you the second, 'Psych is impossible to get a job in without legacy and connections' rant.
See above. Psych, and the odds of it happening, right now at least, are somewhere between "in my wildest dreams" and "not in my wildest dreams."
I took it years ago, and did exceptionally well. Top 10% in the country, if I remember right. Not that it's doing me any good now.
October 28th, 2011 01:13 AMSweet_Dreams*snorts* Yeah, right. I act out passively aggressively against their standards and threats by not doing my work and instead spend my time reading novels (which they disapprove), writing (which they also disapprove) and having friends (which, once again, they disapprove).
Well I do hope I'm not aimless and bland. What do you want to do? Or are you an interesting drifter.
Not for a year, my friend. Although some of my friends are taking it this year, and wow they are stressed. How about you? Did you do well or have you not gotten your result yet? Or are you way past that? '
EDIT: Wait, I just paid attention to your profile, and when I thought you couldn't be any more awesome you prove me wrong by being into My Little Pony. I think I love you.
October 28th, 2011 12:23 AMdream's-epilogueAhh...wish I had those sort of standards pressured on me. Maybe I would have actually had the drive to excel and make it into a high-quality university. Instead (cutting this short because this is a very long and depressing rant and I'll save it for when we both have time to kill.)
Ah...well, you know how that old saying goes. "You don't have to make up your mind on your life just yet. Some of the most interesting 20-year-olds I know didn't know what they wanted to do when they graduated. Some of the most interesting 30-year-olds I know still don't know."
Ah. Do you know if you did well? Or have you not taken it yet? >.>
