/a/


I was wondering what /a/non's situation is like with regard to real life ability, where academia and/or career is concerned. Anything useful I guess. Noticed a lot of weeaboos have close to no skills other than drawing fanart or things to that effect.

I'll start. Maths at Cambridge next year as long as I pass the needed exams (which is likely). Career wise, haven't worked a day in my life.

Going to attend Game Design next year.

Good luck finding work in industry. Enjoy your life in academia, where the amount of papers you've published is all you have to show for your achievements.
>>
I can play Didgeridoo, Bass guitar, Mandolin and Guitar to a reasonabley high standard. Im expecting to get C's in Maths, Physics, Chemistry alevel and a C/D in further Maths AS. I could have got higher but i cocked things up a bit....

But my biggest skill is that unlike the WHOLE of /a/ I have social skillsorz, freinds AND a REAL girlfreind of 2 years who lives in the same country as me and lives about 15 minutes away from me. I see her every day at 6th form and every other weekend and have been with her for 2 years. Also she is hot and not fat or ugly. oh yer.. and she's Asian + Over 9000 points for me ^_^

My parents died last year leaving me over 5 billion dollars fortune and tons of business that run itself. Now I don't have to work or study.
I enjoy having party everyday in my r Michel Perrenoud, S.A bath tub
>>
>>11331796
Uh... what? The statement about the Ph.D. is somewhat true, you can really only do research/go into academia with that...

As for the game design future, I like games and all, but game development sucks. Pay is shitty and the hours suck. I thought about that as a career choice at first, but then I realized how shitty it is. I'll probably work in the security field or some random startup in the bay area/Silicon Valley.
>>
>>11331777
What the butt? I think you're talking about software engineering, not computer science. I also think you don't have a Ph.D.
>>
this thread is cancer, obviously you all fail at life
>>
Studying pharmacology and working.
I go to cinema, read books, manga and watch anime in the spare time (and taking japanese lessons, as a real weaboo). I have a bf since more than 8 years. Pretty normal life, gotta say.
>>
>>11331771

GTFO

(OP), I'll probably do up to a masters in something at least mathematically based, then go into something engineering-y or financial, anything which I find interesting and decently paying.
>>

Spoilers i have a REAL girlfreind who is hot. All you (/a/) have is your left hand :P

Way too fail.

I have posted enough lies in threads like this to know not to take your word for anything.

Enyoy your right/left hand. Girls lurk here aswell

I play bass in a band called Bleet (myspace.com/bleetyourheartout), and I also work in a kitchen.

I'm studying in a high-class art university with quite success, I already get work on movie production here and there and lead pretty active life overall.
>>
>>11332001
No they don't.

They're either trolls or traps.
>>
i scrape by, always 'average', always having 'potential', always never putting enough 'effort'.

normal by any scale.
>>
>>11331971
Every time I see a thread like this, I talk honestly and don't lie.
>>
Haven't worked a day in my life, unless you count fixing computers randomly for pocket change.
>>
daddy left me a trust fund.

WHAT NOW BITCHES
>>
>>11332140
Well everyone has to have some reason why they have enough free time to spend all day browsing /a/ and watching anime.

So ya I actually believe you, but I'm not jealous at all.
>>
>>11332140

i don't believe you have a trust fund, enjoy your daddy.
>>
>>11332150

....

i was kidding....
>>
>>11332140

...buy anime?
>>
I'm in engineering. I learned everything I knew a few days before the exam, and got 60-70s, except calculus, which I've barely passed.
>>

Girls on 4chan are a myth. either way my statement stands.

I am a senior in accounting. I have gotten all A's throughout my college career with little to no work. Now I am getting A-'s and B+'s with little to no work, because my senior classes are a little bit harder.

Accounting kind of sucks, I only picked it because I couldn't think of anything better, and I am pretty good at it.

in b4 "enjoy your 80 hour work week" ;_;
>>
>>11332239
no, I'll keep going. Once it gets interesting, I'll probably put in more effort.
>>
>>11332237
Of course. You will never know the truth.

>>11332327

Its like religion, deep down you know its a load of crap, but you still delude yourself to make life seem a bit more bearable.

Junior in Electrical Engineering. A's and B's and one fucking C because I chose to play WoW over go to class in my freshman semester. Aside from that bout of idiocy I'm pretty much set.

As soon as I pay off my loans and the loans my mother took for me I'm going to live off in the woods somewhere. I want to be alone for a bit.
>>
>>11332353
Altought, I confirm my previous statements, depends how much you believe in anon.
>>
>>11332384

to each is his own, we all find ways to escape reality. Work, religion, drinking etc.
>>
Fucking terrible. Junior in a Physics degree, still to be a junior next year. I'm skipping my calc 3 final right now (fourth time taking the course) because it's eminently boring and every semester I stop going to the class and taking in material about halfway through. Taking the exam wouldn't help me. I'm getting nowhere fast and paying out the ass to do so. Oh well.
>>
>>11332483
Since you already gone over the first half of the material, why not only attend classes for the second half the next time? You still get to spend only half the time in the class as before.
>>
I'm still shooting for a bioengineering Masters and a business minor, with too many bs credits and years of procrastination later. I'll be in charge of my family's real estate business when my grandparents die, which I don't want to happen for a long time yet for a number of reasons.

I've worked jobs every summer since I was seventeen. I don't pay for my schooling, so the least I can do is pay for my habits.
>>
I speak four languages to various degrees of fluency.

Girls sometimes speak to me out of pity and or interest.
>>
>>11332530
The work is cumulative. Failure to practice earlier techniques means I can't effectively do the later ones either. I blazed through high school math at the highest levels, 4 on AP calc with little effort, 1530 SAT pre-change, but nowadays I've got no motivation whatsoever and suck a lot more at math than I thought. Best bet now is probably to try one last time over the summer and hope the school doesn't wise up like they should have a year ago and stop giving me, a student who passes on average one class per semester, scholarship money.

Maths degree, business management masters, preping for a phD in business, economics and finance. Works at retail clothing
