Last thread, >>8309, seems to have hit bump limit so I'm making an even newer one.
Every time you visit https://sushigirl.us
leave a reply in this thread. How your day is going, anything interesting that happened recently or just to say hi, whatever!
I'm usually the one who makes these threads. Nice choice of image.
Oh fuck the other thread hit the bump limit so I'll repost this here
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.
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.
Indeed what a comfy image>>8849
I'm thinking the same thing, I have some friends currently studying medicine and the mental toll from studying it looks awful, sometimes not being worth as a career (depending on salary,etc)
Great image, OP.
>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).
Good afternoon sushi
Crepuscular is a really cool word
When my feet stop hurting I'm going to find the guy who invented work and beat him up.>>8849
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.
Today could've been a better day. Tomorrow surely will be better than today at least.
woops messed up my post.
It was pretty surprising and flattering to see them still being used or at the very least them being saved…
I tried it too a while back, it always felt more like a chore than chill&fun. I don't even like social stuff in groups that much IRL either, more of a 1 on 1 person. It's too bad MSN isn't a thing anymore, it was super comfy to have actual chat friends you kept in touch with. Like penpals without the waiting.
hello sushis! every day I go onto 4chan I give myself a mental kick asking why on earth I'm there, hoping I can make this & other alternative chans my home.
I probably should, but I'm not sure where to find good (or alive) ones. I guess I should just start by searching through some irc list?
>>8860>Linux was postcardware
I'm going to send a postcard back in time to young Linus warning him about systemd>>8867
Irasshaimase! I'm sure you'll fit in. Just beware that sushichan's a lot slower than 4chan.
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.
I thought about going back to IRC, but I'm scared of the same happening.
I can remain here for now, at least.
Never before has this image been so accurate to my circumstances>>8877
I'm doing alright. Shit's on fire here but nothing too close to me thankfully. Smells like a barbecue outside and it's all hazy out. Having never been this close to a large fire it's pretty crazy.
Feeling like I'm drugged with drugs due to the anesthesia they used today for removing one of my teeth.
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. Some three years ago I went into IRC to discuss something in some other community and instead of answering me properly everyone in the channel was speculating about my "real" identity and extrapolating ad hominem from there.
I wonder what my first image of the 16X era should be. Should I even bother to think too hard about it? It feels like the start of a new era in personal terms. I don't feel too happy about it but not much sadness either. It's not like things were great in 159X and they suddenly changed, but it is a milestone in a way.
Perhaps my days in sushi rollymity will finally come to an end.
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.
i haven't had a really good hamburger in a long time. I should get one sometime.
Double patty or single? I love mine double patty with extra mayo ketchup
Past few days have passed alarmingly fast, despite me doing nothing. Sometimes it seems like the less I do the faster time moves
Jump in the IRC! It's been a while.
Are you the same person that posted something similar on s4s?
Good song, I had never heard it before.
I think I've been on sushichan for like, half a year or something and I've yet to really benefit from it. I need to do something with this site so I learn from it. Maybe something hobby related. I already have another imageboard that I can share stuff with, but I'll try to find something.
Another night I spent awake 'til 6 am
No, I don't browse s4s
Yeah! We need to have an old timers' get-together in the IRC channel.While we're on this subject, argot, if you're reading this, I'm sorry I missed your message. Try me again sometime.
I can relate to this post
Good to see you pal!
Haven't been on this site in a while, but I'm having a nice time checking up on whats happening. I wish stuff was more active. I'm torn between wanting more members and wanting to exist in a tightly knit community of people. Regardless, I'm happy.
Greetings from Colorado
I am slowly losing my grip on reality.
Be the change you want to see in the world.>>8951
I've been having a rough time of life, but the past couple days have been better. The only thing I've done is stopped complaining internally about stuff. Maybe it worked?
splurged on some quality beer
stuffed them all in the fridge I'll see how they taste in a couple of hours
think we'll get to 10,000 post by 2021?
I come often but post little. But I am glad I can still come and find a nice community.
Girls are cute, and cute things are good
Many imageboard dudes probly don't find guys as cute
Same reason so many all-female-cast anime are popular with men, y'know
I forgot about this place for a while, missed the comfy vibes
I know I should relax
Do you remember me not calling back?
I was dumb
Good call the other day
I know not everything could be escaped
But how can I face the day?
I know that I should be more alive
Sometimes, I wish I never came around
But other times, it's not that bad
I remembered an old snuff film I watched, not real though most of it was faked, and decided to look back on it. the comment was full of people saying "anyone here from tiktok". It was defiantly a surreal moment for me. I've noticed an uptick of those comments on some indie songs I like too. >>8973
Same sushi roll. I just don't feel like working, but I gotta get on track
Translation: men are horny for 2d moe blobs. They use female anime reactions because it makes their peepee go up.
Hey Sushi world!
I've been having a rotten lot this last week. My 20 year old car broke down and I got it back home, but I'm too scared to drive in case I get stuck somewhere and I'm so broke with no income.
Lot's to be grateful for though and I'm watching David Lynch' "The Straight Story" and cooking pork roast which smells delish. Just having a rant I guess, thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.
There aren't many better feelings then getting back in touch with a friend.
Nothing like kickin it with some old friends.
Hi sushi, haven't been here in forever. Anything I missed?
I've spent over a year now stuck away from my friends and family due to a series of comically unbelievable misfortunes, the last of which being travel restrictions from the virus. Today, I found out I might be able to go home very soon. It's the best news I've gotten all year. Homesickness is very painful. Wish me luck, sushis!
congratulations on being able to go home, I hope it works out for you sushi!
There was a big pandemic and people got scared. Some died.
Fight on, fight on. You can do this, sushi roll!
One of the cutest things to come out of this year.
Learn all the countries, capitals and currencies in asia.
Well I think that's normal. It happens to me too, and I think to all people in a relationship. I guess thst's the cause for many problems among weaker-minded people, or those who've grown unhappy in their relationships.
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.
Hang on sushi.
Thanks for your response! It feels good to be able to talk about it. I hope this feeling will pass. My heart aches as if I was crushing someone. I hope that's not the case either. Everything around me is so unsteady - I really don't need another consistency falling apart.
It's ok Sushis, everything will be ok! Believe in you that believes in yourself!
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
Spend my time
Tell me that you're always going to be my life
I'm not bored at all
You can call me when you want to call
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.>>9009
Post one of your illustration here?
>>9011>Post one of your illustration here?
I actually have a thread on this site, but I don't want to post anything yet since most of my recent doodles are incomplete, and I want to get out of the habit of posting half finished drawings up.>>9014
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 find it interesting how the US is still struggling with coronaBirus and now it's the next flu season lmfao

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.
I want to say hello to the former lizards of lizchan that are on here to say that it is back (kind of) at lizchan (dot) top.
I'm basically slogging through school, having tests every week. I hate tests so damn much, even though I do well on them. I'm just so stressed before having one so I practice a lot. As a result, I basically just sit in my room all day, programming, doing homework/practicing and browsing chans like this one. I rarely talk to people in person outside of school.
I'm very torn. My parents met each other around my age and it seems I'll never have a chance to meet anyone in my current situation.
This is a very comfy website though, like browsing here.
Studying statistics to get the lottery numbers, can't believe no-one else thought about this

Is the Christmas creep real? A few years ago I couldn't imagine this, but now they've already started Christmas sales. It's not even Halloween
I have sort of a theory that it's not actually getting worse, it's just that every year we keep forgetting how bad it was the previous year. Something about our brains going "no, that can't be right, it couldn't have been that
early," so then it takes us by surprise when it's that early again the next year.
What an insane idea, but is the stock market much different?
>>9059>A few years ago I couldn't imagine this, but now they've already started Christmas sales. It's not even Halloween
No idea how it's like in your country but we've always had a bit of a lull in october which has slowly been infiltrated by halloween. Christmas stuff usually began in early-mid november before, but now it's straight after halloween.
Hey everyone. I haven't posted here in quite a while, I miss you all. I guess life goes on sometimes, I'm feeling real nostalgic about this site, back then you guys at the IRC were the only friends I had and I really appreciate that. Thank you for everything
I'm new here, intend to lurk more over the coming weeks. I'm fixing my 10yo computer rn and hoping for the best this winter.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAwaQv1-xts
Don't mind me. I'm just looking for lost /liz/ards.
Sounds very nice, sushi. Make sure to give your loved ones a big hug, but I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that.
Hate the youtube comment sections nowadays, simple as
You say "nowadays" as if it ever wasn't shit
I used my ad blocker to remove recommendations from youtube. Much better experience.
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:https://invidious.snopyta.org/
but there are others like https://invidious.xyz/
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:https://newpipe.schabi.org/
No personalisation or anything. Just directly get the content you're looking for. NewPipe sometimes doesn't even load comments at all, which sounds like more of a blessing than a curse to you
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. Replacing the instance when it breaks is as simple as doing find and replace, I'm using .tube at the moment since .snopyta seems to buffer a lot.
Kind of agree. Maybe it's nostalgia, but back then youtube comments would sometimes have something funny to say about the video. Over the years the jokes became less funny and more dependent on meme outlines (Nobody: literally nobody:). The new update, were new comments are mixed with highly liked, just killed the system for me.
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 sort of work do you do sushi?
AM radio is so comfy. There's always something interesting being talked about, and it's one of the few hobbies you don't need your eyes for.
A warm "howdy" from Colorado,
It's midterms and I cannot stop playing factorio
yeah you're right, sorry about that.
Are you gonna be okay argentina roll? You're not gonna starve or something?>>9156
I don't think that sort of political talk is a problem, especially if it's affecting a sushi roll. It's not like just being worried about poverty is gonna cause a fight, I mean even that socialist music thread which is obviously out of place has got no argument in it.
>>9159>I don't think that sort of political talk is a problem
That's not the issue, I'm from the same place the other sushi is, I just don't like seeing any debate on how the country is because there's nothing good to take out of it, and there is nothing that can be done to fix it.
I don't want to hear anything about this place, I've heard the same pessimists posts countless times. I want to be cozy in here, not being reminded of the hole I've been dropped into.
Oh, I didn't want to start an argument or anything I just didn't have anything to post.
But I get what you're saying so don't worry, I also want this to be a cozy place.
Hi sushirolls Happy October!
Last week I ate a very spicy bowl of ramen that's on the secret menu of this pretty nice ramen shop near my place. I'm going to try the spiciest level this week so I can get free toppings for life!
I also made a dating sim game with some friends for a game jam! Feel free to play it yourself!https://brainloaf.itch.io/office-dating-simulator-2020
Cool game! Got all the endings, I think.
Hello sushi. Haven't been here for a while…>>9095
Glad to hear that! >>9118
I've recently tried these out and loved them, although I found out most of the public ones were lacking.
Most public Invidious instances wouldn't let me see a whole YouTube channel. I also would end up at Cloudflare for a long time at times. The Snopyta instance doesn't seem to have that many problems, but on the other hand it's under decent load since it's the "default" instance now.
I couldn't get the Tampermonkey scripts to run, wasted hours on that until I found the browser extension you've linked.
Blessed YKK poster, bringing awareness.>>9151
I've bought some radio some time ago for the exact same kind of feeling. It's even helped me sleep if I put the volume low.
>>9162>Putting the whole game description as "install instructions"
What a power move
Just dropping by because I search a link to Lizardchan, lost my bookmarks and don't remember what came after the dot. Guess that was a good thing because now I see again how good sushi actually is.
Already found it, glad I recalled seeing a bridge from here to there.
Maybe I will stick around, I like it comfy.
I wish the weather would change here. It's still in the 80s every day and goes up to the 90s sometimes. I should be wearing my cute scarves and long socks by this time of year.
Been a while since I've visited, but besides being down for a little while longer this has been me too.
Hoping things get better or at least I start feeling better soon.
DAMN IT productive but not the way I want to
I don’t understand ANYTHING and it’s probably for the best…
I'm mad for no reason again.
Yesterday it rained and I spent all day home reading. Was able to finish a lesson on schedule.
Today is a very nice and cool day outside. I hope I can stay home and read books just like yesterday. Today I want to read some maths and perhaps some history.
I absolutely feel what you wrote there. I'm pretty much in the same situation as you but I also have exterior influences that force me to hurry up and get shit done. That still doesn't help me with actually accomplishing anything. It just makes not getting anything done extra straining. In addition to that I really want to graduate before my grandma dies. She's 93 and really really wishes to attend my graduation. It pains me so much that I'll probably let her down.>>9001
The feeling vanished btw. Not completely but enough so I can go on without being stressed by that.
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.
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.
I think this thread should not be recreated when it hits bump limit again. Yamero!
I thought so. They are really different languages. I'll just defer japanese until I'm proficient with chinese.
On the other hand I found a really neat book on kanji with discussions on etymology. Might be a good start.
Thank you sushi.
My life is spiraling, and not in a particularly good way. But I don't care to stop it
It's a strange feeling
we all emd up in the same place
Congratulations on getting that job sushi! Do your best!
That pic evokes in me a comfy feeling. Reminds me of another time in mylofe and makes me want to bring back something of those days (even though I am much happier now and my life is more fulfilling.)
My sims 4 crack has finished downloading. It has all the dlc and everything. I should get it up and running in a few hours
>>9232>It needs an 11 GB update to function
How long was your break? Hope you have a lot of courage in you.
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.>It's either that or getting into a 4 years one.
Don't two-year degrees transfer to credit for the first half of four-year programs where you live? Or do you mean you haven't decided yet?
>>9238>Don't two-year degrees transfer to credit for the first half of four-year programs where you live?
Not that I know of, but what you're saying does apply to careers that last 6 years but give you a degree as a tecnician in the area you're studying if you finish the first four>Or do you mean you haven't decided yet?
I am decided, it's a fallback plan if I cannot enroll to the first one
Today finally the right kind of productive
Was it a nice hotdog? A regular frank or a brat or kielbasa or something?
Our teacher was telling us about how we had a really big assignment that could make or break our grade and a few weeks later, after the due date, when she accidentally screen casted the assignments and we learned less than 1/4 of the kids turned in said "super important assignment".
God online classes are a wreck
I bet there are some good stories of teachers accidentaly showing screens or cameras
stumbled upon this place when i needed a new wallpaper, went to /wg/, noticed a startpage thread, browsed premade startpages out of curiosity, and one of the most popular ones had this site in its default links
all in all, this lives up to the acclaimed coziness.
Today I went to sleep early. I wish I had dreams but I never remember them if I do.
This was way before covid, but I had a teacher who got a porn virus on their laptop. Every time they tried to screencast their laptop onto the smart board she got a "Sexy woman in your area" or a "Click this if you wanna CUM" windows notification
I want to scanalate Japanese/Korean adult comics as a side project. Any good series in need of translation?
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.
best of luck sushi!
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.
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. I had that too, where it was considered kind of dishonorable to not do a full 4-year program at a prestigious university and I wasn't used to making decisions for myself so I didn't protest. I can't really understand the mentality since the diploma you get looks exactly the same. At least they had good internet in the dorms.
I'm the one who revived the original version of this thread and I feel like its outgrown its purpose. While the discussions here are fine, I think it would be best to make more specific threads instead of this one big micro blogging thread, at least when this thread hits bump limit.
holy fuck he killed himself? source?
Check the Witches threads on the 4chan /c/ archive. It was several months ago apparently.
Our schools electricity's down and our teams meeting is our teacher using the electricity in her car to chat. She wants me to screencast the slides she uploaded earlier to everyone.
School is becoming more painful by the day. Having to do next semester online is prematurely draining my enthusiasm and motivation. Joblessness isn't helping either.
Other than the ever present school/work horror things are pretty decent. Been doing my best to support friends and make new friends. I have also been working on my artistic endeavors extensively and am very pleased with the progress I have made.>>9313
Had to deal with this the past couple days. Thankfully nothing really needed to be done this week, but it is not ideal regardless.
Watched Borat and Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. Amazing.
Made some "secret sauce", mayonnaise and ketchup with some other spices, out of curiosity. Not half bad. Accidentally made to much so I'll have to figure out way to bullshit it into my meals.
Today I invited a similarly asocial friend over to work through the day with me. It was so nice, I honestly forgot how much I missed interacting, physically, with others. We're planning on meeting up again next week and I haven't felt this happy in so long.
Been very interested in physics as of late. Found a good set of books and even a set of lectures. Problem is the calculus. Not that I find it particularly hard, but I've been stuck with it for a while now. It kind of makes my brain feel tired when I try to learn it (I did learn the basics years ago), and I feel I'm going really slowly, while the very first mechanics book is juggling derivatives from chapter one.
And I can, for the most part, make sense of them, but I'm also just taking it at face value since I can't even do the math myself.
I brushed my teeth twice in the same day today for the first time in probably more than a year. I hope I don't have any new cavities.
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.
It's cute, I liked it
Had the strangest day yesterday.
>nearly 11am, still asleep
>dad wakes me up, says my ex-gf is at the door
>no idea what's going on
>haven't seen her for months and she lives over an hour away by train
>she is, in fact, there
>lockdown, so technically can't invite her in
>we go on a walk, make smalltalk
>long story short, she really wants to get back together
>spend all day outside in the chilly winter sunshine, chatting, laughing, discussing emotions
>walking through a field as the stars start to shine
>back in the village, fireworks are going off
>watch the green bursts and soaring red flares as we hold hands
>LG: life's good
Man, I'm jealous. Hope you're happy together sushi roll.
hey sushis, hope you have a nice day today. i think i will work on some minecraft builds.
Released an album yesterday. I'm pretty happy, because it's a thing I can be somewhat proud for the first time in years.
I'm planning of buying some IEMs, any recommendations, currently thinking about the Tin T2 or blon bl 03
Congratulations! Making something yourself is always nice
I'll be working on my website that I run as a hobby/sideproject today, the code that I wrote to generate it from my own version of markdown needs some improvements and fixes.
Awesome! Feel free to post the link, I'd like to see.
I've been working on music myself but I'm still a ways away from having a cohesive album to release. I'm still trying to find my style.
I'll work hard today so I can have tomorrow 100 percent off!
Always a good plan! Good luck, sushi!
Ahh so close to being as productive as I wish I could be
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. It's never the skilled or knowledgeable people whose voice becomes louder, it's the guys with the best PR.
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.
My landlord is selling the house I'm living at and is having me leave when people tour it. Normally I wouldn't mind but because of the virus all the libraries/restaurants/ect. are closed. It's starting to get cold out so waiting somewhere outside isn't even a good option. I'm usually a pretty flexible person but this genuinely annoys me.
wow, that's bad treatment sushi. hopefully it ends soon, although i am not sure what the implications of that would be.
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? 'Cause it's starting to get old to repeat the same lie just to get high score credits… I enrolled to a university damn it, not some sort of motivational seminar!
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.
It seems like whenever I say goodbye it's forever. I wish I could head to a diner with one of my old friends and just spend hours catching up and reminiscing.
Make sure you have some stories to tell them when you meet again.
