Oh fuck the other thread hit the bump limit so I'll repost this here

>>8831
What kind of country are you in that being an accountant has more status and better pay than a doctor?! I have colleagues who were downright pushed into medicine precisely because of both these points. That's ludicrous. Are they stupid?

Have you looked into foreign scholarships? If you have good enough grades for medicine, you could enroll in it in your country then immediately bail out and have essential commodities paid for. Take advantage of all the obstacles in your way to really paint a good sob story and you're pretty much set. Maybe you can even avoid the whole enrollment process in your country and get a foreign scholarship+enrollment right off the bat.



Addendum:
And who the hell doesn't want a doctor in the family? Your family is either very lucky, very naive or very rich to never have dealt with shit healthcare providers.

Or maybe being an accountant is more of a do-nothing job than I give it credit for and they're sincerely looking out for you having a well-paying job that doesn't take much effort? I don't know. Depending on your specialty, a doctor's job can be pretty thankless.

I would consider that sushi's aunt might have suggested accounting because it is lower stress than being a doctor. I had an uncle who begged his kid not to become a doctor because their life would be taken up by it.

>I wanted to go to medical school and I've prepared whatever it takes, even facing the sexist stereotypes in my country. However, my mom forced me to go to an accounting school instead and I absolutely hate it.


Oh… as someone who had to go through this for every minor thing, starting from having their friends selected to the selection of the education/career path, your post caught my eye.
As you already know, forcing your children to do whatever you want them to always backfires.

>I'm on my last year now. And I've been telling my mom for ages that I want to quit—she just doesn't let me.


That's obviously even worse, because everyone will keep telling you stuff like "but you are so close?! Why would you want to quit NOW?!". Please, don't let it get to you.

>but I want to go to medical school. I know how taxing it is, I know how bad it is for medical staffs now during the pandemic, and I still want to do it.


I wish someone like you to treat me in the future, if I get ill.
That's admirable, honestly.

>Sure, being an accountant has a good pay, but it doesn't matter if I ended up hanging myself mid-way.


I've seen so many people finishing a so-called "good university course" and being so depressed they couldn't work a day afterwards.

>you have a happy life and well-cared for, why are you, what is that again, depressed?


Is depression stigmatized where you live? I imagine it's so… well, it honestly is so in most places. Is it possible for you to get some help?

>ignoring my countless suicide attempt

I figure everyone knows about these? Sometimes it takes just one (plus the admission to a mental hospital) for the parents to reflect on their mistakes… which I assume isn't so in your case, right?

>>8844
I guess it might depend on the specialty. If you become a nurse after a nurse specialty, you might not earn that much.
I think I have a friend with 2-3 university degrees and some medical certifications, yet they still might earn less than me (which doesn't really matter, since they love their job, while I despise mine).

Not sure where sushi's from but in the US accounting is considered a very high-stress job. During the tax season they work like 80+ hours a week and they also often do full-time plus some overtime the rest of the year. I don't think it's that bad everywhere but that's the stereotype.

I've decided to join a discord in the effort of socializing through online means more, but for some reason it just isn't very enjoyable. Sometimes there's an interesting convo, but I always feel like an outsider in these communities. I remember seeing someone describe using discord as going through the highschool clique game again, which seems pretty accurate from my usage of it. It also doesn't help that most servers I've been in just aren't personally interesting to me, usually a lot of meme spam and such, or complaining about things. Maybe I just need to find better servers and work on my online socialization skills.

I guess this is why using truly sushi rollymous online forums has always been easier for me; there's no worry about trying to fit in to any clique considering everyone's sushi rollymous, and the nature of discussion allows you to jump in to whatever threads you see fit, rather than a stream of communication that you need to be there at the right time for.

That's my experience as well. I managed to join a good one, but I still never felt like a part of the "core" clique, nor like someone who would "vibe" with everyone very well.
I'm accepted, recognized even, but I still don't feel like I could make bonds that'd go very deep.

Surely at this point IRC is even worse than discord when it comes to cliquey bullshit. There is no steady stream of new users so as time goes on everyone knows everyone.

I didn't quote any post!

By the way, whenever I try to delete my posts I always get a wrong password error. Maybe you should look into that admin. In other imageboards I used to browse that used this software, I knew I couldn't close all tabs to the imageboard's website because then I wouldn't be able to delete my posts. I always assumed that had something to do with having cookies disabled. However, in sushichan it won't work even if I try it in the same tab as the one I used to post my reply. Very weird, but I'm assuming it has something to do with me getting into this thread from /kaitensushi/ rather than from /lounge/.

irc is kind of "dead" in a cultural sense since it's not a major internet crossroads anymore but it can still be surprisingly vibrant and the users friendly.
Depends a lot on whether the network/channel has an actual active purpose or topic or whether it's just a place where users go to hang out with people they already know. It's not as easy to find as it was twenty years ago but there's still good places on all the major networks.

Are you judged how you want to be judged?
Does your ego rain down like a flood?
How do you act towards the ones you love?
It's harder to be honest when you're young

Do I know what you want me to know?
From the jeans you wear and the looks you stole
Your light, it comes from a Judas hole
And your charm betrays my eyes, it's dark and cold

I know you're bored
I've seen it all before
Yeah, I'm familiar

Do your veins still hold your blood?
Can I ever have more than your trust?
Can I be enough?
Can we ever talk about us?

I know you're right
I see it in your eyes
With my crystal vision
And I'm underwhelming
But I've got a feeling

You get exactly what you need
Your charm's your harm
What you need is to be free
I know you know, you know
You know just how I can be
Afraid of honesty
You can't see what I can see
With my crystal vision, but it moves fast

Been to a party a few days ago and met a girl there. She was super fucking pretty and cute and nice. Everytime I think about her my heart aches a bit knowing that I'll never be able to hook up with her, since I'm in a relationship. I'm not unhappy in my relationship or anything - I love my gf to death but sometimes my head gets dizzy with the thought of the endless possibilities the world has to offer, if only I'd be on my own again. I know that wherever I'll be, I'll be longing for something I can't have and I ususally don't have these feelings but now that I do, I also feel this immense wave of guilt washing over me. I really needed to get this off my chest - for obvious reasons I can't talk to anyone about that because they'll think I'll of me.

Hello fellow sushis. This month was going particularly well for me, and then it all went to shit yesterday. I had to make a choice that I didn't want to make, but it was one that was a long time coming and was completely necessary for my mental health. Too many bad things have happened this year, and just when I found something good it was taken away.

Just for once I just want a peaceful, uneventful month. No high highs, no low lows. Just a calm month. I know at this point I'm asking for the impossible but I wish I felt some sort of calmness for once.

I went to the city for a couple days and I liked way too many girls that I saw on the street. Everywhere I'd look I'd see a qt, and I got the same feeling, particularly knowing that even if I weren't married I'd still never have a chance with any of them.

Doing some illustration and reflection today. I haven't been able to get a job over the past few months, so I've had a lot of time to myself, most of which was dedicated to recovering from a break down I suffered from the previous year(s).
I've been trying to change the way I view learning the craft of illustration, since I feel my previous mindset partially led to me burning out. As well, I want to think a bit more about what I'm communicating when I draw.

I used to want to show you every single line
Now it's hard for me to show you anything i write
I know that i get nervous when we're not alone
But i wait for you for hours when we're coming home
When we started talking i got so excited
And i swear i tried to go out every single night
I know that you will always be the one who's my
Spirit desire
Spend my time
Tell me that you're always going to be my life
I'm not bored at all

The brain always long for what it doesn't/can't have, so it's normal. It's the driving force that push us to achieve things. The real issue is when you no longer desire anything, that's emptiness and melancholia, so don't worry. When you feel like that just take a step back and appreciate what you have, that's true happiness. A lot of people (me) would love to have a girlfriend at all.

Neat write up!
I rarely ever thought about what kind of learner I was, but I guess according to this doc, I fall more on the intuitive side, while trying to incorporate more methodical exercises to make sure my fundementals are intact. I haven't consistently drawn for a long time, and even then I wasn't close to mastering the exercise, so I want to make sure I'm working from a strong foundation. At the same time, the only reason I got back in to art after effectively quitting it for years is because I let myself loose and scribbled whatever came to mind, with polish thrown to the wayside.

I've been told by people that it only exists in big cities and no one else should worry, just go back to work. People in my department are screeching not about us all coming back in and being packed in like sardines, but that the rest of the office gets to stay as work from home and they should all be back in. The situation here is fucked. There was an initial mad dash to save the old people in retirement homes, then a surge of office workers being told to work from home, but its all over now. They want everyone back in their workplaces, restaurants fully opened, masks gone, but don't understand or don't want to accept the consequences of doing that.

Maybe you'd be interested in trying out a front-end for Youtube? I use invidious in the browser, this instance is what I use:

but there are others like https://invidious.xyz/ or https://invidious.tube/ as well. There's an add-on that I use to automatically redirect Youtube URLs to these:
https://github.com/SimonBrazell/privacy-redirect
And on mobile, I use NewPipe:

I broke out of manufactured youtube addiction by downloading newsboat and using invidious' rss feeds instead of subscriptions. I generally watch either 0 or 1 videos a day now instead of dozens.

Kind of agree. Maybe it's nostalgia, but back then youtube comments would sometimes have something funny to say about the video.

I love how you put it : "manufactured youtube addiction".

The same happened to me this year, but for different reasons. Earlier this year I uploaded old japanese movies to yt thinking they would be spared by the bot but inevitably I got 3 strikes and my channel was deleted.
Since then living without a youtube channel made me realize how much all of it is a waste of time, and how little I miss it. The content that is popular/recomended is designed to be frustrating or stupefying. And even the channels which I thought were good turned out to be a waste of time. You'd be surprised how almost all of them just produce the exact same thing over and over, and people keep watching because of habits.
Take my advice, log out of your yt account and you won't miss it after a week.

What do you think sushies?
I a,m learning chinese. I have noticed I can guess at the meaning of japanese text because of the semantic elements of kanji. If I learn the grammar of japanese, which is all expressed in hiragana, perhaps I could understand japanese text reasonanly well… is that too crazy?
The only objection I find is that I'd end up reading as a mixture of chinese and japanese. reading all kanji with mandarin pronunciation alongside hiragana. And end up developing bad reading habits.

 No.9209

>>9205
You might be able to decipher a good amount of meaning here and there but the various kanji readings are different enough from hanzi that you'll easily misinterpret a bunch of things without putting an effort into learning kanji specifically, not to mention the actual pronunciation. You probably know this already if you're learning Chinese but knowing the common readings of a character are important where it could mean different things in context.
That said, it might be a nice head start to already be familiar with a lot of characters. If you don't really want to invest too much into Japanese right now try reading stuff with furigana like shounen manga.

Two years, the first one I was still in college but I winged it and dropped out the second half of the year. Second one didn't attend at all.
I'll just do it since my sister ended up graduating and got a really good job while I felt for the trades meme and the "college lobotomizes you" meme, which only applies for the first world
There is an agenda being pushed in education, sure, but where I live you're a nobody without finishing it and trades don't pay well either, the lowest of the low do them
>Hope you have a lot of courage in you
I just want to learn to code and get to work from home (or just get a job) but the courses I've been getting into were pretty bad and made me doubt myself enough to go back to college.
I was also preparing to get into a two years career but due to COVID making things hard I can't get to communicate with the university I want to apply for, sent an email a week ago and I got no replies, called the phone number but nobody answered, and went to the institution and it's all closed.
It's either that or getting into a 4 years one.

It really blows how in some places degrees are more important than experience in getting programming jobs. Pretty clear case of classism if you ask me considering it's more akin to a skilled trade than anything academic.

First time I've ever posted on this imageboard but it seems alright. I'm lonely and I really wish I had a girlfriend. I've never had one and I think about every day now. I don't understand why I have to deal with this loneliness when there's nothing wrong with me. I feel like there's no point in living, the only thing that could bring me out of this hell is my first kiss, but it seems impossible. I've always been alienated and separated from society due to being homeschooled as a kid but the hardest part of that was being separated from girls. I didn't get any chances to socialize with them despite really, really wanting to. That pain sticks with me somehow and it doesn't help that almost all the girls my age have already had a lot of partners, not that I care, it just puts us on different ground. I can't relate to someone who didn't go through the same loneliness that I did.

I applied to college. The process itself was better than I expected – financial aid and paperwork has been the worst so far, but even though the workload was high, the process was manageable.

It's weird seeing 12 years of your life summarized in a ~10 page document. I want to major in Electrical Engineering, so naturally admissions are competitive. I'm honestly super nervous about acceptances and worried that I won't get in anywhere at all. Statistically I think it's pretty unlikely, but… you know, there's still the self-doubt.

As scary as it is, I'm really excited for the future. Hope everyone's taking care of themselves.

I'm applying to college to sushi roll. I think the process is pretty easy, but all the horror stories come from the suspense of waiting for an answer.

The worst part for me so far is my dad. He doesn't know much about applying to college in 2020 so he wants me to only apply to one school, not get an associates at a CC (My state is known for having the best CC to 4 year transfer programs), and I have to drag him to the computer so he can help me fill out the forms.

I also want to be an engineer sushi roll. I was aiming for mechanical though. If you don't feel confident about your chances stating your an undecided and switching to E.E is the easier route.

We got this, sushi. I have some ME friends and they really enjoy their classes. I definitely wouldn't let up on applying to a wide variety of institutions if possible, especially if you can get admissions fees waived. I've also struggled with parents underestimating the competitiveness and complexity of college in 2020 and it's definitely a lot. On the bright side, though, the end for the boring form submissions is close (at least if you're applying EA or rolling for post things)

I did consider the undeclared route, but I'm uncertain if it's actually easier to get into an engineering major as an undeclared student. Some colleges will put you into "first year engineering" which is nice and removes the competitiveness of the individual majors right out of the gates, but honestly going from high school to college it's all a crapshoot regardless.

Out of curiosity, why do you not want to get an Associate's before transferring to a Bachelor's program at a university? I find myself wishing I'd done that sometimes just because, price notwithstanding, I felt like I didn't get much out of my first two years at university that I couldn't have gotten elsewhere, especially after having had some really great teachers at CCs for various other credits and certs and stuff. Though to be fair, I didn't really participate in any social or cultural stuff on campus either which I know is a big draw.

>>9295
Not sure how it works where you are but in the US if you know for a fact that you want to study engineering there are often some non-upper-level classes that require a declared engineering major you'll need which help give you a taste of engineering before you can really sink your teeth for lack of prereqs, not to mention the major-based clubs and other resources and stuff. Though it's usually also really easy to change majors too which doesn't seem to be the case where you two are.

On top of this I sacrificed my summers to take extra courses and unlike a 4-year there's often no extra fees. The social life at my community college was also dead but I worked and saved up a good amount, took a wide variety of eye-opening classes and cut my tuition back by several thousand.

I actually want to go to a CC, but it's my dad getting in the way. He and his family are conservative when it comes to this stuff so going to a CC for 2 years will make them look down on me. When ever I try to explain to him why I want to go to a CC he gets this mopey 'I'll ask you if your sure until you agree with me' attitude.

I've always been kind of a push over when it comes to peoples opinions so fighting over my dad when it comes to CC. That combined with my chosen school being pretty cheap means it's not a hill I want to die over.

The only real reasons to not go to a CC is if your degree needs a lot of internships/connections, you don't have a good transfer program, or you don't feel confident making friends when you randomly transfer to a 4 year

I know how you feel
My parents were married and had children at my age. I've never so much as been in a relationship. When it's been this long you feel left behind by everyone in your age group who all figured out how to interact with the opposite sex as children. Nobody deserves to be lonely but it feels like people like me don't have any other choice. And of course every time I manage to initiate contact with a girl only to have it go nowhere or just end badly only insulates me further from even wanting to try. I'm sure I'll get shouted at for saying so but it feels like too much is expected of men in general in when it comes to dating, at least for socially stunted people like me.

Oh, I misread.

Learning to *do* physics is very much about doing thousands of problems over and over. Learning the ideas behind it is less difficult. While actual, high level math becomes problematic, for the most part entry-level stuff like linear algebra, basic topology, and yes calculus can be understood solely by what they imply. Don't worry too much about how the math actually is calculated if all you want to know is why it works.

A local place I shop at got into one of those "Looking through abandoned malls" videos. In all honesty the place is kind of a mess, but it was still weird seeing people disconnected from the place make judgments on it. I think the weirdest part was they didn't get the layout of the mall. It's a strip mall in the front and once you get inside you're only supposed to go three shops in. Everyone else knows the rest is abandoned land you shouldn't enter.

Another weird thing is that I experienced the place differently from them. It was a mall that shut down then became an Asian market. If you go in expecting a mall you'll be disappointed, but if you expect a low income Asian market things wont be as bad.

Thank FUCK I had this kind of experience well early on when internet personalities were becoming a thing. I remember the angry videogame nerd reviewing a spiderman game for the gameboy and being absolute shit at it, then blaming the game for being bad without giving it a proper chance and then doing his usual routine. I couldn't take him and his "quest for shitty games" seriously after the fact.

Shit on the internet isn't always what it looks like. Even people you might think do their shtick with a level of care will easily throw away their credibility (if they ever had any?) for a touch of sensationalism.

My dip into cheap IEMs left me unimpressed with the Tin T2s. They are bulky, I always have trouble with MMCX (actually broke the cable on mine trying to remove it), and the sound signature is pretty boring. I really like the Moondrop Starfields, but those are a bit further up in terms of price. I can wear them all day with Spiraldots or Spinfit tips and they sound amazing! Moon drop came out with some cheaper IEMs that might be worth getting.
My favorite cheapies are a set of Massdrop Pinnacles. They sound okay, but they are small enough that I can rest the side of my head on a pillow and not have them be uncomfortable. They were like $20 when I bought them.

At this point I think I'm fed up with my school constantly asking about their students' dreams in literally everything. Weekly assignments, essays, papers, exams… since I have to lie on every single one of it.
I don't have any particular dreams, I don't even bother to. I'm just living according to where life takes me. I have goals, but not necessarily a dream, and those goals are selfish as fuck (buying a PC that's good enough to play modern games, saving up money to pay for both bills and hobbies).
It's ticking me off in the wrong way about their optimism that their students have dreams. I'm sorry, mine is crushed a long time ago, so can you stop giving your students assignments like that for, you know, a day?

Quick question are your first to second year of college? A lot of colleges do stuff like this to be a pseud filter. Kids who don't know what they want to be when they grow up and choose a degree randomly or people with no passion, but a love of money tend to be trouble for colleges. Those stupid essays are a way to nip that idea at the bud and prevent them from wasting 4 years on a degree that makes them go "I hate this".

I have the same problem too. I don't see my degree as something I should be passionate about, but as a means to an end for money. I'd be ok doing any degree if it made me money and left me enough free time for my hobbies. I've long ago accepted I'd rather daydream about what I hope in life than getting it, so I have no real dream I want to achieve. Like you I just lie when they ask the question

A bit different, but I can't take "how would you survive X", "live in x time period", or live in the wild type questions. I'm diabetic so the answer always devolves to "I would have no insulin if I were at X. I die in a week". You can't stretch that answer out into 3 paragraphs so I just forget I have diabetes and make shit up.
