Yooooo. Historian in the house.

 

I have a history degree. If you ever plan to do anything related to that, get courses in archival. That will help out so much.

 

I do IT for Telepresence Business solutions.

What does a Historian even do? Will I get to be on the History channel and say, "Aliens"?  :)  :)

On my way home I spotted three big dogs. They'd gotten out of their yard and were going on a grand adventure. Didn't want them to get lost or hurt, so I corralled them at a park and loaded them into m

I managed to get all prepped for the upcoming Pokemon tournament. Hoping it goes well this time around. Ex and I have been reconnecting. We both admit to making mistakes last time.

Technically I graduated in January from my college in London. But the diploma took forever to arrive. So I did a whole phitoshoot today of the mail arriving/my graduation. Did the program online so I

Other than Heroes, when was the last DQ game? DQ9 in 2009/10? I think it's been that long since the last Mega Man game, as well. 

 

I haven't found another franchise to really get into since.

 

Yeah, remakes & Heroes aside, it's been FOREVER!

 

I've done some more digging into careers. Here's the most recent list of what has been recommended to me based on the testing I've done:

  1. Ergonomist (didn't even know what this was)
  2. Occupational Hygienist
  3. Anthropologist
  4. Geographer
  5. Historian
  6. Linguist
  7. Political Scientist
  8. Sociologist
  9. Gerontological Specialist (HAHAHA Dafuq is this shiz XD)

The list goes up to 130, but these were the top picks according to the tests. I guess I should do more research into these, though they sound like I'll have the same issue where I won't be doing anything but notes and I absolutely cannot stand not doing anything, which is why I start hurting myself to keep myself busy in class.

 

My sister got a degree in anthropology.  When my mom asked, "What do you do with that kind of degree?" my dad calmly answered, "move home."

:laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:

She went back to school for 3 years and got a BS & Masters in Speech Pathology.

You can really do a lot with a history degree, having one basically shows that you are a trainable person, so don't feel bad if you don't exactly get a job doing history stuff. I've gotten over it at least.

 

As for an Anthropology degree, it's great if you can get into a university to do that, but you will be stuck teaching so you can do anthropology, and most people don't want to do that

 

I wanted to do museum curation initially, but It's super hard to get into that field not because of saturation, but just because there aren't a lot of jobs for it, and it requires a master's degree as well.

I finally had access to a decent internet connection tonight, so I got a couple of games downloaded for my 3DS that I had been waiting on. Decided to get the Sega Saturn theme while I was able to - thought about the Dreamcast one first, but I'm glad I went with what I did since it's actually a pretty slick theme.

Have you considered getting the 3DS version of Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers? I think it's on sale for 10 bucks on the eshop right now, so if you've enjoyed the first Devil Summoner game on your Saturn I'd recommend Soul Hackers.

For some reason I didn't think that SMT game was even on the eshop. Kind of irritates me that I missed that one this time. Oh well, the game isn't going anywhere, and I still need to play thr Saturn DS anyway.

I was going to do the career testing via the school, but next workshop is next month, so I guess I won't be attending that any time soon.

 

So, my career path is still an issue. I can't find anything appealing to me and I don't really want to spend 4+ years going to school to get a job doing something that I need to be dragged out of bed to do. I'd love it if I could find something that was more hands on, but I looked at the trades and none of them catch my eye. If I were to choose one, I would be choosing the least objectionable rather than the most desirable and to me anyway, that seems like a lousy way to choose a career path.

Keep in mind that even if you have a degree in one thing, you can end up in another field. Like I said before. I do IT for Telepresence systems now, I originally started by working at a Museum, I just kinda found myself here. The degree just shows that you are a trainable person, and the field of the degree just helps within that field.

I can promise you most people do not work in the professions that they got their degrees in. My brother works in finance. Wanna know what degree he got? Not finance, that's for damn sure.

This is something that worries me. I don't particularly have any profession that even interests me that is realistic, so I'll probably wind up at like a grocery store or something. Can't live my dreams that way. Rip me :/

You think that now. I once did. I'm in a position i thought I'd never have, and this coming from a guy who worked in a grocery store for 10 years. Stuff can pop up and you'll have no idea. I know it's easy to say stay optimistic, but you gotta try to keep an open mind about these things.

I am aware that stuff can pop up, but I'd rather not have to rely on a potential opportunity that may or may not come up. I'd like at least one back up to fall back on that will make me enough money to support myself.

Back from a job opportunity/information meeting on campus. The group was a selection of people in the Cedar Rapids area who specialize in technical writing/proposal writing, and it was interesting hearing each member of the panel talk about their respective jobs.

 

I don't know if I'd get into technical writing, but regardless, hearing their individual experiences made for a good evening. Plus each of them mentioned how people in their field(s) have English degrees these days, so it's good to know.

Oh yeah. That's totally understandable. 

Finding the backup is where I struggle. Nothing particularly even gets me interested. It's more like "I guess I'll go because I don't want to be homeless," rather than, "This will be a good day at work."

The voice of Yukari Takeba from P3 is going to be a guest at a convention I'm going to on Friday and Saturday. I'm considering going into her autograph line to see if she'd sign my Lovers Arcana tarot card that came with PQ and P4AU.

I am a wealth of utterly useless knowledge.

Me too! Mine is movie and television trivia.

My Wife's grandmother is going in for heart surgery today. I am hoping and praying that she does well.

Hope everything's okay. Let us know.

 

On the subject of grandparents, my grandfather is in hospice. Which if you don't know, means that he's being cared for, in-home, and that essentially they're just making him comfortable until he dies. :/

Has anyone here played the Ultimate NES Remix?

I have played most of the first one, but haven't started the second one yet.

I didn't even realize there was a second one. The one I'm looking at is for the 3DS. Is it worth getting?

 

I ordered it from Amazon, but despite saying they had 14 in stock, Amazon emailed me saying they couldn't locate a copy and refunded my money. Kind of irritating to be honest. It's Amazon for goodness' sake.

 

Anyway, I was thinking of buying it from the eshop.

I'm sorry to hear that. It's a very tough thing to see and live with. I'm not going to say it gets better, it really doesn't. But you get used to it after a while. Does he live with or near you?

 

And I wish good tidings for your grandmother in law, Cobol.
