So, Iâm back to classes, if anyone really cares. Iâm taking barely enough to be full time, but thatâs alright. Two required classes, and two liberal arts/outside area-type classes. Should be good, only been to the technical ones so far. (Pretty nice split, all tech/math, then all philosophy/lit.) Looks like Iâm going to be taking it easy this quarter a little, not like last quarter was hard. In any case, Iâm back to school, and Iâve had some conversations about my education as recently as 4 hours ago that I wanted to share with the greater body of the world.Though, Iâm mostly documenting these thoughts because of something that was thrown around when I was talking with people last night. Writing to your future self. While thatâs not the most useful way to maintain readership, though it guaranteeâs at least one person will be mildly interested, I decided to write with a âwhat nowâ bent and have this preserved in some meaningless way, for the future.Iâve been told about a dozen different majors now that I âshouldâ be studying (the current Computer Science, included). Anything from mathematics, philosophy, computer engineering, new/digital media, animation(ish), etc. Mostly the people suggesting the change have been well-meaning, and itâs not that I just wonât change. Itâs that âthereâs still time for that.â I can always just learn it later. Thereâs always more to learn, and I can always just keep getting degrees. My goals are not aligned with getting a job, growing old, and retiring until death. Iâm, at heart, a technologist and a futurist. The future isnât now. The future is what I make it, and Iâm gonna make it awesome. So there.Thatâs my goal. Help me, donât tell me I need to fit into a box, because I really donât like cubicles.
