Profile Information

  • Gender
  • Interests
    Tabletop rpgs such a D&D 5e, Call of Cthulhu, Cyberpunk 2020, Tails of Equestria, and a whole lot more. Have GM/DMed a lot, but only been a player a few times.
    Computers and algorithmic design. Making both little programs that do simple tasks, as well as large applications to handle large inputs. Always eager to try and apply my knowledge, or learn something new along the way.
    Writing a variety of things. Mainly fiction, though research is interesting if I have the time. Working on setting up a FimFiction account once I have more free time. I'm trying to pursue a side gig with a Patreon writing page.
    Trying to figure out how to art so I don't have to commission as much.
    Nit picking apart headcanons and unnecessarily detailed fictional worlds. This ties into the above tabletop GM role. I like to plan out the systems a world has, and so like to figure out continuity and other details.

  1. Whenever I look back at my college career I'm amazed that I keep pushing through all the nonsense classes and getting on with it. There have been time where it seemed like I was in the worst place, and that nothing would be better. It was times like those I had to just take it a day at a time, and roll with what life threw my way. Focusing on the small joys and delights that came once a week in the form on online game night, or in a little treat for a test well done. It was rough, and it took awhile, but I'm nearly half way through it all. Just have to keep on keeping on.

    Whether or not that can apply to what's going on in the big wide world with you is your call.

      @WWolf I can agree with that. I more so mean that I have both of those mindsets poking at me. Part of me knows I have to plan for the future, while another part of me needs to remain focused on the task at hand that's due in the short term. Switching between those two modes of thinking just wears me down. And yeah, the old days of taking it all as it was 100% of the time and letting the adults make the decisions are missed a bit by me as well. Though the freedom I now have in the time I do get outside of study and work is nice.

      @Rebel Brony 42 I know some seniors that are going into graduate school. I'm not sure how I'd handle it when I'm already eager to shoot out the gate and get on with my career. And based on all the stuff I hear from others, the math I've done, life after college does seem like it will be better and less busy (since the time it takes to work part time plus do school sometimes is more than a 40 hour work week).

      You can make just about as much money with a masters as with a phd. Phd is a waste of time unless you want to throw you life away do research. Trust me.

      @Rebel Brony 42 Yeah. The two guys I know are looking to go the academic route, which seems like it would suit them well based on the interests they've shared, but I'm not about that ^^;
      I can explain a concept, but I can't devote myself to teaching it and researching. Plus, that seems a lot more "locked in", and I've always felt like I want my career to be a bit more fluid incase I want to switch jobs later down the line.
