Ahhh, you make me SO look forward to college next year... Applying to around 10 scholarships within the next month... Sigh.

Regardless, Gambatte!

I read some of your blog posts last night, and I have to say I like all of them I've read so far! Have you been able to further your Japanese at all, or have you solely been focused on studies?

It really depends on what you're aiming for at Uni. It's quite easy if you only want to pass but if you want to get straight A's it's not easy. And if my scholarship demands it, it's even more pressure. Regardless I just take it as a challenge - since Uni truly is the most important times of one's life and it determines your future.

 

I am studying Japanese right now. I'm making time for it by reducing times in my other hobbies including Internet and even anime/manga.

Hmm, well I've always had little trouble keeping As in high school and before. The thing is though, I can't really see the point of getting straight As, so long as you pass your classes and get your degree, unless your scholarship wants it. That being said, I'll probably try and keep a high GPA in college, but that may be difficult to do considering I'm a procrastinator. I'm also OCD though which will hopefully save my arse and allow me to still try and give a damn about my classes.

 

Hmm, are you studying it at uni or on your own? That's interesting that you've cut back on the very thing that got you interested in Japanese in the first place (probably, just taking a total guess here though.) I don't know if there's a word to describe it, but that's kind of like selling your vehicle to pay for the fuel costs of it.

Certainly a high GPA has its uses, especially for Grad School. However if you're not planning for further education and no scholarship requirements, then yeah, it's not really that useful at all. College is a whole different beast to high school though. For one it's a lot harder just because how much more freedom you get. 

 

I'm studying it myself. As I said in the blog post, I've pretty much reached a ceiling of where I can go with this hobby as a Western fan. 90% of the things I want to read are only in Japanese, including mostly light novels and visual novels. For the sake of this hobby, I'm picking up Japanese. I don't see it as "selling my vehicle to pay for the fuel costs". I see it as "putting my old car in the garage while I work my heart out so that I can afford a much better car in a few years."

 

Not knowing Japanese is starting to take its toll on me on where my hobby with anime culture can go. I have to study it.

Lol, I've heard that AP stats is one of the hardest AP tests out there. (I know you're not in AP, but whatever)

It's amazing anyone passed the test considering the teacher of the class is absolute garbage.

I may get a master's degree after a few years, or I may just stick with a bachelor's degree. There's no way I could afford 6 years of college right now for a master's degree, and from my general understanding, computer science related jobs should be fairly easy to find, especially if you're talented. And I'm guessing I could probably make good money just with my bachelor's.

 

I'm worried about having so much freedom, to be honest. Mainly because I'm a procrastinator, like I said earlier, and even when I try and do stuff early, other things (like this damn site) start to look ten times as interesting.

 

Guess I sorta glazed over the significance of that part of your post, That makes sense though. I hope to study Japanese in uni, and hopefully I can consider reading manga and watching anime to be "educational material." :D

Good luck on your journey good sir!

The story has been rewritten as a novel called Catcher in the Toilet. Unfortunately there is no English translation as of yet

CS/CSE students have really good job opportunities with just a BS or BA nowadays. My friend recently just completed his BA for CS a few months ago and he's been working at Facebook for a year and a half. Now he's down in California doing some more programming stuff with robotics I believe.

 

Bioengineering on the other hand usually requires a masters or PhD for decent jobs. You could technically go into industry with a BS, but usually students with more experience on the technical aspects of bioengineering (ie. prosthetics, instrumentation, electrical stuffs), or drug delivery, go in that area. The UW's bioengineering program has about 33% of BS students going to industry, 33% to graduate school, 33% to med school.

I've always wanted to study Japanese. Although I'm not sure if my parents would condone it because I still haven't mastered Chinese yet. And Japanese...well we all know what happened between the two.
