This can have a big impact on what you do with your university life.

For many people, spending less time on studies could and would actually be better.

Yes, I could give myself an uber workload. But I don't want to be a researcher, grad student etc. I want to either work at a major company, or start my own company.

That's why I'm doing almost everything else right now at University.

I'm currently working an internship, applying for one for the summer. I'm also about to become the represenative for about 10,000 students on campus to the studen council (which I am also in). Past that, I am also an executive member of a business club and am an executive member of my residential student organization. Also in animation society, another business club as a regular member and gonna be donig more next semester.

As an engineer for the future. Companies here could have two schiits that you have a 4.0 GPA. It's about selling yourself with internships, experience, and dedication to other talents and work.

This is indeed true. To be honest I'm working my ass off for knowledge mainly. Even after two years of studying mathematics and physics, there's simply so little I know at the moment. I plan on going to graduate school and getting a PhD afterwards. Of course at some point in my life I need to focus on getting a 'real' job and entering business life. But at the moment I have almost zero interest in that, and I feel I better be doing what I do best.

Also, I have decided not to aim for GPA 4.0 but rather for maximizing university credits (right now it's like 3.7 in fact orz). I have thought about this for some time, and discussed it with my tutor and adviser. People tend not to care about the grades you got as an undergraduate when you have a graduate degree. And it's easier to do a graduate degree well if you have a firm and broad basis, rather than having focused on a few subjects and got really high grades for that.

Maybe I'm just being greedy going only for what I like doing, but then again, living the life that would maximize my future income could be even more greedy. In the end I'd value a fun job way more than a well paid job (though I won't mind having both). I think research is just exactly the thing that really fits me, but I know I will probably think about this differently 5-10 years from now.

It seems like you're getting the most out of university in terms of opportunities, connections and useful experience for later life. While it seems like I'm trying to get the most out of university in terms of knowledge, analytic skills and research skills. The latter two definitely open up a lot of opportunities for many companies, but maybe not as much as having real life experience.


And hey, maybe I'll just end up fossilizing in academics and become a professor someday.
Wah, this describes exactly what I want to do too! biggrin.gif

My switch circuit had diodes in addition to the two resistors though.
Yeah, but essentially they do the same thing  wink.gif

Uhh... what?
Ah mmk. It's neat that you get to do this kind of stuff so early. smily_headphones1.gif
This is still your first year in university, right?

Fire Emblem: Awakening fan art. XD


Oh dang, that's a nice (purchased) cosplay outfit.

Wow... so what happened to toleration...

 

Common otaku, Anime aren't like twisted religion during the Xth century. Sigh... but I guess it does happen with every large fanbase (although in small amounts). This one was just one of the more public ones.

A french mangaka drew this for me.

It's just mesmerising watching a pro creating something beautiful from nothing.

Well atleast both of you got something useful out of university life.....
I spent a year studying electronics just to find out that I actually don't like studying electronics and that I learn much better by myself.

I ended up skipping 70% of my classes this semester and doing my own independent learning / projects.

 

Planning to transfer over to the computer engineering dept to see what's it like over there.

Yeah, but I was expected to finish my 4-year curriculum in 3 years so I took 12 credits in electronics already.

Godspeed to you in that case. Changing majors is always a tricky thing, but usually it tends to work out.

I take it you'll still be working on electronics projects? :P
Also, wouldn't robotics be a nice middle way?

I use this model!

Such wow. Just installed a Galaxy S5 ROM on my Note 2, and the music player has the option to emulate the sound of a tube amp.

 

 

Edit: Just found out that none of these settings work. :confused:

Thanks mate~

 

Yep, I'm still doing electronics projects.

 

In fact I'm currently participating in a SE-Asian robotics competition called "ABU Robocon", It's pretty awesome :D
