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.

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.

You could work/do the graduate degree at the same time. For CS that's usually how it goes. Most get a job by the time they finish undergrad. Not saying that the job will necessarily be good...

Personally aiming for Ba, masters for SE.

Yeah, I guess that's one good thing about having a job that's in high demand :D

My computer teacher's son got offered a job with a starting salary of ~$90,000 before even leaving college. He's now on his way to Amazon in Seattle to do programming for them.

Wow, that's insane. You're in for the long haul then! Gambatte!

If you're good enough, probably so.
