    But 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?

    Bah, 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.

    Ahh...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? >.>

    Ahh, but at least it's the final stretch, and you're one step closer to graduation and college. Speaking of, got any college plans yet?

    I took the ACT instead, it's basically the more advanced version. It was also a LOT easier than all the hype lent it to be.

    Just fine. Various money problems on and off and the typical stresses of beginnings of adulthood. On a secondary note, I've begun getting involved in Second Life. It's fairly entertaining.

    I know what you mean. Although it wasn't that bad for me, I knew some interesting teachers.

    Well, I'm glad of that at least. Sick doesn't make me happy but at least it's not serious.

    That's not too bad. And just think, it won't be too long before you're done with all of it and then you can start getting PAID to do things.

    Oh, that...that kinda sucks. Does it get serious? Like, serious serious? =(

    Aren't you about out of school? Forgive me if you've told me before, it's just been so long I can't remember clearly "

    It's okay. I hope things get easier for you. If you get a free momeny, we should catch up sometime, but only if you want to.
