    Most technical schools have very little general education, so basically half of my classes are for my major and half are general education right now, and by like next year I'll be just doing stuff for my major. I used to go to a private college that literally had 1 year of English for general ed, and that's it.

    Hey Gyardo! How's it going?

    By the way, what's the 1D doing with red noses?

    Okay now that I'm back to my actual computer, let's try this again! Hopefully it works this time. If you see this then that must mean it worked. :D

    Actually, I'm not sure if he's the same guy either. But I guess it shouldn't matter much. At least they both seem to enjoy the place, albeit in different places around the forum.

    Yup, that is true. We owe a lot to our thriving Emulation section; most people who joined here and eventually moved on to other things were originally drawn to join by the same ROM hacking projects. I wouldn't even be here if it weren't for ShinyGold.

    Haha. Majoring in Physics is incredibly difficult, and that's coming from someone who finds Math tolerable. I won't let that stop you from trying to enjoy your first Physics classes though! Because it does get fun, especially if you hit the jackpot with which kind of professor you get. But yeah, teaching is one of the best work experiences out there, and as low as the pay might be, the dynamic day-to-day lives and the invaluable relationships that you develop with your students make up for it. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if teaching was listed as one of the most fulfilling among the jobs you could ever get into.

    Well, yes and no. I could definitely do all of the programming by myself, but the music and graphics are the things that catch people's attention, neither of which I can do... so without a team, I could probably never make a successful game, though I could make them. If I went to college for 12 years, I could get degrees in art and music too. :P

    Oh and believe me, I understand. You don't even understand how much I understand. I would sooner die than take a full writing class. Yet I'll have to take two at some point... I can't even imagine how horrible it will be. lol

    Yeah, it's probably a harder degree than most... although this kind of stuff comes really naturally to me. I mean, I'd write a thousand line program way before I'd write a thousand line essay. haha (Or any essay for that matter. lol)

    It is the second highest paying degree in the country currently though, and I'm thinking about double majoring in the 1st highest, which is computer hardware... so yeah, there's that. Of course, it'd be kind of pointless, because I plan to work independently, so I won't have any wages, or have to worry about getting a job or anything to begin with. lol

    Honestly, I kind of plan on treating it like a hobby. If I'm lucky, I'll never have a "job" in my life. I'll just make whatever games I want, and hopefully it'll bring in enough money that I don't starve. I'm confident enough in my game ideas that I think I could make that work... as long as I had enough support from someone else to get a game or two out there first.

    Probably gonna be living in my parents' basement for awhile. haha

    I have 15 credits now, and I'm getting along alright... although I think I'd rather have a bit less work so I can focus more on other things. I don't really have the energy to do anything but watch tv and play games when I'm not doing school work. lol

    Heh, actually, ante scriptium would make a lot more sense. Kinda like ante meridiem (AM) means "before the meridian" in Latin. Well anyway, that's a relief. I wasn't sure whether I'd be able to add anything to a topic that's basically just repeating back and forth at what we've talked about already. Not that that isn't in any way entertaining, but, ya know, it's gonna be difficult to keep up the multi-paragraph replies on just the same topic.

    Coming out is really difficult for me. I have come out in front of some of my friends, and the reaction I got from them was tepid at best. The most terrifying part where I have to come out before my parents is going to be difficult, yes, but I feel determined that I would not forgive myself if I won't. I am sure your problems are far worse with coming out since you live in the USA, and I live in the Netherlands, but it still causes angst with me. I grew up in a protestant family, and my mother's opinion on homosexuality is already ambiguous enough. One minute, she says she's fine with it, and the next minute she rages that it is a punishment from God.

    Even when living in a country that is considered the most LGBT-tolerant in the world, there's still the social expectation that being gay means you ought to act gay. Many people are too feeble to really look beyond those prejudices to accept that however much we wish we could put everybody in a handful of shiny boxes to make everything neat and organised, we just can't. Maybe that's one thing that I really like when I read about existentialism. I essentially tells that there is no meaning beyond what meaning human beings assign to the universe. Our knowledge is finite; nothing but a droplet in the ocean. The sheer amount of information as well as the vast realm of the unknown makes certainty humanly impossible. Prejudices are a great example of this limitation of our human knowledge. We seek meaning, and reach a conclusion that cannot be true, because we just don't know of the activity in the unknown realm. I think this definitely applied to one of my friends, who -- as I believe I've said already -- is coming to terms with my coming out, and is starting to lose the stereotype he has of gay people, now that he knows one that doesn't fit the categorical example of a gay guy.

    There's also this really beautiful concept that the philosophy holds to, called "Existence precedes essence". It tells that a person's most important consideration is the fact that he is an individual -- an independently acting and responsible being -- rather than what labels, roles, stereotypes, or whatever preconceived categories the individual fits.

    Also, thanks for inviting me to the Rainbow Connection. I would suggest you check in the members list, under the E. I already joined it when I was active on PC a long while ago. I think it's also still listed that I am a member of the Rainbow Connection on my about me page. I just haven't posted there yet, which I will of course do in the future.

    OH MY GOD THOSE COOKIES. AND DAT TOAST! *dies of hunger/awesome*


    Haha, Darren's reaction up there is pretty much exactly what I felt after reading your message. D'awwww! Thank you ever so. And of course I will marry you - that is, if you're okay with Andy beating me to death with a stick afterwards. I'm already promised to someone, you see. but i'll totally cheat with you

    And actually, yeah, I hadn't really thought about what I *might* be able to contribute as a heterosexual. Namely, support, encouragement and reassurance that a great big chunk of the world - maybe more than ya think! - doesn't just see absolutely no problem with LGBT people, but sees absolutely no reason why they should not be given equal rights effective immediately and someone's orientation should just cease to be an issue. And will vocalise this. >:3 Loudly and frequently in the bigots' FACES.

    And YES YES YES :D we need a PC LGBTS Visibility Week! With banners! And emblems! (Why isn't there an LGBT emblem, anyway? 'I support LGBT rights - do you?' That's something worth celebrating, innit?) I think you're probably right - all those people who lurk just need to be lured out with cookies. And love.

    Obama ftw. :D I was seriously So Relieved when he was re-elected. Even if he does just need to pull his bloody finger out and sign some legislation into practice. Hopefully he'll stop trying to please absolutely everyone towards the end of his second stretch and powerwalk the rest of the road to equal rights - although I dunno, I'm basing that on the assumption that most Presidents don't get a third go at things and he won't have to be so worried about vote-winning. Amirite? Or amiwrong? xD

    Ooh, and finally...
    I wish everyone in the world was like you, so unbiased and liberal. Please teach some politicians your ways? No, but really, your awesome! Don't ever change! Thanks for being so kind and caring. :>
