Japan, Thailand, Phillpines, China(maybe), are all on my to go list.

I've actually already been to Thailand.

I love it when my flight is delayed super crazy cuz of a storm and I get a free 2 day vacation on a connection route :laugh:

My air passes should be super super cheap soon a lot of my family works at the local airport now and soon someone will get a Z pass which is mad discounted flights. Like sub 100$ anywhere in Canada.

I want to be a network administrator, or computer support specialist.

They don't make a whole lot of money, but I am not really planning on having a family, it should make enough for me to live.

Not trying to be an asshole here, but I'd like to inject some dissent into this thread.

Most people do not have one single career their entire life, that is simply not the way life is for most people. You will probably get fed up with teaching high school kids eventually. But it's great you are so enthusiastic about it. The lack of teacher enthusiasm is a big problem in our schools these days.


Oh, and to whomever said philosophy was a pointless degree. Most lawyers and politicians are philosophy majors during undergrad, so I'm not sure wtf your talking about there, you can do just about anything with it, as with any degree.

I was thinking about majoring in history. But...all I could see doing with that is being a history teacher, which I have no interest in doing because I hate children/teenagers. I heard history is something people going into law school sometimes study, but I would be too lazy to do law school.

I like fixing and messing with computers. So IT stuff might be cool for me.

That was a good waste of around 2500$. Applied at a local college for a Net+ , and A+ cert and found out I can take the tests for 400$ each and the books is 14$ to download online. So gay I told them I want to drop out like first week of classes and they sent me a reduced bill of 1500$+ total cost would have been over 8 thought so whatevazzz

:frown:

Computers seriously make me miserable, I don't think I could do that shit for a living. Network Admins make 45+ grand a year most places, Internet installers here make up to 55, plain old techs make over 30.

I wanted to be a computer programmer when I was finishing highschool, was thinking of a honours or masters in computer science and getting into computer engineering if I liked the course load.

Fuck that shit though. If your a technician try to be a company's tech guy because if you end up being a tech at a call center or something you're going to talk to illiterate people who bitch at you all day because their cd rom isn't a drink holder or they deleted all their dll files because they didn't look good.

Yea, there are pluses to that kind of stuff though. A lot of people are apes when it comes to computers, it would be totally easy to slack off. Something that might take me...10 minutes to fix, I can say its going to be a while.

I won't be a dick about it, but really it depends what you are looking for...fame in your garage band? or a career in writing music for artists, t.v ads, shows..?

Music is pretty broad and you can still make money from it.

Not really.

I've worked in the computer mantainance field and you could do that to a customer if you owned a shop or it was a private deal or something but they watch you like hawks and your not paid by commision usually so there would be no point.

If you repair computers for say a computer retailer that would serve no purpose, theres also a lot of problems when you fix computers privately.. people will try to sue you now and then... slime out on paying you.. ect ect.

If you don't work for someone too theres no guarentee on constant cash flow.

Orchistra/Symphany preformers are a common job, teaching lessons and writing music as Bannana said are the main jobs anyone who actually makes a living with music will have.

People who go for the big shot mtv shit your going to be taking some 2 year college course when your a 35 year old alcoholic :P

I wont work for someone my whole life.

I plan on finishing college and working for myself.

I will never have a family so as long as I can eat thats fine with me.  I dont plan on growing old frail and senile either.

overdosing is likely the cause of my demise also.

so many people I know who say they'll never have a family or work for someone always end up having a family and working some office job.

I think family's are pretty ienvitable if you're into dating new girls when you find a relationship going cold. Eventually you'll be all mushy over some bitch and she'll want a kid or you'll knock her up by mistake nd she won't want to get rid of it.

If you don't want a family you'll need to find a chain smoking alcoholic so she'll want to get rid of it for sure!

I remember 1 time in JR high me and a couple of people did some DXM pills during study period early in the morning (before I knew what psychedelics/tripping really was) and I remember going to an English class and the assignment was to define vocabulary terms. I remember attempting to write out these terms somehow but as I'm writing out the letters they are moving and I showed it to my friend who was completely sober and it just looked like chicken scratch.

One common thing pretty much whenever I take acid is whenever I look @ letters on a monitor they are all moving and bending like u described. That type of shit is pretty dope but I still prefer the mental aspects of tripping more than the "eye candy". :naughty:
