- Ah, yeah, I would think that you should choose between mechanical and electrical no later than the 2-year point. I actually switched from physics to aero/astro after 4 semesters undergrad, and I still finished in 4 years (I took several courses during the summers and an extra course each semester afterward to catch up and graduate on time). So, even if you decide one now, you can switch between engineering majors fairly easily up to a certain point.
If you're deciding between mechanical and aero, though, you should know that even if you take all the same classes (all of my electives were mechanical engineering courses), the people who do job interviewing will think that with an "aero" degree, you can't do "mech." But if you have a mechanical engineering degree, you can still apply for aerospace jobs, especially if you've had the right coursework (take aero electives). So you should be thoughtful about that...
But you still have time. So make sure you stay focused in your math and science classes, and then you can always switch if you want to after about a year or so.
- Oh wow, haha, that sounds kinda confusing.
Oh yes! If you don't post with proper grammar and whatnot while in the SD you will be looked down upon. I think it's a bit silly, but whatever, lol.
Progress in grammar comes with experience, methinks! Hopefully he gets better. Or he may just continue to post like that for as long as he lives.
- Haha, yup, the members of ZU like stuff to make sense and be pleasing to the eye. :3 So you're thread was perfect, it just existed in another form, hehe. Also, your grammar isn't bad at all. It's lookin' good. *thumbs up*
Uh oh, haha. Yeah, we've got a few members like that (mostly in the Zelda section though). It's a bit of an annoyance, but they'll learn eventually to tone things down!
- You don't have to convince anyone of anything. It shouldn't be your goal at this point. Anyway, I'm glad you decided to take a deeper look into yourself. You are your greatest enemy.
NO HE WAS RIGHT AND YOU WERE WRONG! NAYRU IS CLEARLY THE GODDESS OF TIME! MY LACK OF EVIDENCE SAYS SO!
That is pretty repulsive, actually.
Don't let it get to your head, boy. You start laying off and you'll be "alright". After that, it's a downward spiral through "okay", "could be better" and "what is wrong with that guy?".
Anyway, welcome to ZU. Keep at it and you'll soon make a name for yourself here. Friend. =]
- Sorry for prying into your other conversations, but it seems like the guys at SD did a number on you. Please look at it from above. Everybody is voicing their opinions, some of which run deep with emotions. When someone says something that goes against their belief, they'll go into self-defense mode and try to destroy the opposition.
Arguments can go on for a while because of this defensive nature of humans. Remember this and you'll be fine: The other guy is feeling what you feel and doing what you are doing. In a debate, both sides usually feel threatened and 9 times out of 10, both are fighting for what they believe is right. Present points from a different perspective, use examples and try to keep a balance of offensive and defensive arguments. Oh, and don't forget to compromise and consider other opinions. After all, no human is perfect, and some ideas may be better than yours.
Oh, I originally came here for this.
Quote:I would just like to point out the true ignorance of this statement. Not everyone here who has some sense in their mind should know that, because it's not fact. Therefore, there is always going to be speculation. You are not the end all be all, so don't try to be. Next time, come to a thread with something factual and supported to say or don't come at all.
This is probably the longest VM I've ever written. You are now cool in my books.
- Haha, don't let them scare you.
The people of SD just have strong opinions and want to make their point, sometimes with the hopes of swaying someone's opinion. Just keep an open mind, you don't have to agree with everything (or most) they say and you don't have to immediately reject your world view because someone differs, but it's a great place to get other peoples' perspectives on important events, concepts, and such.
I really like it, I like seeing what other people think and why.
- I guess I get that. Being from a Catholic background, I remember believing the priest, pope, cardinals, etc. were supposed to be very close to God, and thus authorities on what God intends for us to do. I guess I'm less accustomed to the idea of them being human and thus fallible because of that...if that makes sense?
Thanks for your well-wishing by the way. I think I'm searching for the possibility of God more because I think it would be quite sad if he existed and I had no relationship with him rather than because I'm looking for answers to life's riddles.
Also, thanks again for taking the time to answer all this, I really appreciate it.
- I've always been curious about how one follows a religion/denomination without agreeing with it entirely. I think it's a good thing that people maintain individual opinions and beliefs even within the larger organized church, but I've never really understood how they...I guess how they rationalize it.
For example, my mother is Catholic, but thinks contraceptives and birth control are fine, but she still adheres to the belief that the Eucharist is actually made into the body and blood of Christ. I've never really understood how one denies one and accepts another, y'know? Obviously it would be quite extreme to just throw away a certain religion because they disagree with you on a few issues, but if you truly believe in the religion and religious leaders, shouldn't you then think that they have these rules in place for a reason? If you could give me any insight into this, I would absolutely love that!
I was drawn to Wicca because it's largely an individualistic religion. You decide what you feel is right and wrong and try to act as best you can to better the lives of those around you as well as your own. There's some vague belief system, but even that isn't the main focus of the religion. It's you and your actions, very personal. I've since left this as I still felt like the God/Goddess aspect of it was empty.
I regularly meditate in hopes of perhaps finding a relationship with God (should he exist), but mostly I find it's just helping me relieve stress.
But anyway, that was an unbelievably long post for no reason! Sorry for rambling!
- Well, I personally identify as agnostic, but I was raised Catholic up until about the age of 13 (though I became rather disillusioned before that). I also had a brief stint with Wicca in high school, but only for its spiritual qualities (not its rites or magic).
I like looking at/learning about other religions though, and if I see someone on the boards that seems rather religious I'll sometimes ask. Gives me a place to start, a reason to check out another denomination or sect.
- Quote:I'm not exactly the best at speaking on forums. Considering this is really the first forum I've ever been on besides some slight dabbling on Zelda Dungeon. I know what i'm trying to say, I'm just not very good at wording it. Which gets me frustrated, leading to nonsense posts that I just kind of rant in.
I just don't know what you want me to say, I guess? There isn't much left to say when like you've said, you've taken apart my argument, point by point. Especially, when nothing you've said has changed my own opinion on it. Because now I'm just left out in the middle, even more lost than I was before the post. I don't agree with your side still, but you've made some very good points that have made me see some flaws in my logic. I'm just more confused than ever, ugh. =/
I'm gonna post this here, because otherwise we'd be getting off topic. But the last thing I want is to actually discourage you from stating your beliefs or the SD board in particular.
The confusions is a good thing. It doesn't matter which side of the fence you land on. No side is necessarily more right than the other, on many issues, least of all moral issues. The important thing is that you now have to justify your thoughts. Which means research and hard work. Which means not only will you be smarter, you'll have a clearer better defined world view, and that is something well worth the hard work.
Stick around, but yeah SD is a rough board. Be prepared for people to really dig at your opinions. Alot of them are a hell of alot less nice than I am as well.
