I'm a couple of months away from finishing my university course on Political Science :yah: (well, I'll still have to do one exam in September but oh well)

I'm also working on a video rental store, part time. I really like working with movies because I'm a bit of a movie buff myself, but that store has little to no clients at all and I don't do nothing most of the day, and get payed like ****, and my boss is always cutting down on my hours. I'm looking for a new part time, because there's NO WAY I'm staying there for the Summer, I'll go insane. I'm thinking about the Blockbuster store ;)

Student. Will graduate from secondary high (finally..) this fall, and I'll be aplying to a media/arts/digital arts/w/e school abroad once I graduate. Might be working as an au pair in Netherlands during my graduation, since I have the option to study via the internet.

I really hope I get my uni exams done this fall so I'll be able to aply to the media school. It's one of the few studies that really interests me. Some people keep telling me I should check modelling agencies, but I'm not sure if that's my kind of job. Besides I have crappy skin.

I'm a little Asian ninja, and I go running around hitting people for being annoying in general.
If there's nobody who's being annoying though, I do the regular job of being a student. I've technically finished highschool now, and I'm going to be going to college.

I'm a Student. That means I do Bugger All, complain about school and get drunk in my spare time. Not for much longer though - I've got my leaving assembly tomorrow. Out into the big bad world . . .

For cash, I drag my neighbour's dog around the village three days a week and occasionally look after it (or go next door, flake out in front of the TV and watch Expensive Sky!)

Uh, sorry but what's the job you hope to get afterwards?Seriously, no ****ing idea. I have multiple options atm, and I just can't choose. My parents wish I would take art studies, but I personally would love to be in media business. What? I don't know. My whole situation is rather complex atm, and I have meetings almost every day at school, work center and such since I'm trying to figure what career to take. Generally just media interests me the most.

Ugh.. Now that you asked that, I kinda feel **** since I don't know what to do.

20-05-08, 17:04
i wouldn't worry about it too much....Right up until maybe feb, jus as i was finishing my first year of college i didnt know want i wanted to do.

When you start to look at universities (if you decide to go), the courses tell you what they can lead to, and it might give you a clearer idea?

IMHO they place too much emphasis on choosing where you want your life to go at an early age, it seems as you enter year 10 you have to know. its crazy

Ahh good luck. College is so much better than school. I always thought people lied to me about it just to make me go, but its awesome. So much more free time, and everybody is so more mature :D

I'm sure you will love it :tmb:

Studying at the upper secondary school, 1st year(out of 3). :p

I seriously envy people who have always had at least some kind of an idea about what to do later on, where to aim at etc.. :\ I've always been one of those "drifters", so to say. I do have some interests, but I really don't know whether I want to do something related to those for a living or anything.. Sigh. My grades vary quite a bit depending on the subject, but I guess they're still somewhat above the average so I'm not really concerned about them..

Ah well, at least I know what I'm going to be doing for the next two years(study) so I have some time to think.. Maybe I'll even mature a bit by then, I just feel sort of naive yet for not even knowing what options I actually have after I graduate.. Waah. :(
..perhaps I'll take a year off? :D

20-05-08, 17:53
I'm a student. Don't have a job or anything like that yet. I don't know what I might want to do. Basically just going where the wind takes me.

Everybody keep saying that I'm still very young, I have all the time in the world.

Most of those people are the kind who've studied for 2 or 3 jobs and found out there's no work for them and then they've studied eventually for yet another job to pay their bills and hold up their families.

I guess I'm in no hurry.

Well I'm working as an intern at Philips Research Europe, currently preparing a final experiment to see how random users experience a new way of controlling television (still with a remote control, but no buttons) that I developed in the past three months. After this I will continue to work there to do research on a specific topic I cannot elaborate on, that I think might result in a very interesting publication.
This in general is part of my education: I'm a third-year student Industrial Design. Thanks for reading. :p

I eat for living (grapes atm).

Seriously though, ask me in two years and if my crazy plan works out I'll be more than happy (and proud - it's tough) to tell you.
Now I'm curious, what sort of plan would this be? :p

Btw,a second year Computer science student here, going onto my 3rd. Hoping to continue my studies in game development major. Most of you here apparently took that as a major, but we dont have that as a major here. Am taking a bachelor in CS now, then I'll fly to the states hopefully and see what I'll do.

I also work full-time at PetSmart as a "Pet Care Specialist," which means that I take care of and sell fish, small animals, reptiles, and birds, and I help out customers that may have issues with the following. It's a great job aside from the retail aspect of things.
