Music: The Minutemen

So, for those who don't know, A few years ago I was off at university - McMaster to be exact - studying engineering. For all of one year. I needed to pick something (well, figured that I did) and engineering seemed like a thing that could fit with me.
It didn't.
Couldn't stand most of my courses. Not that can't do it, I just don't and the way that they teach stuff is a) not how I learn, and b) not something that can motivate me to try to work (the methods of most teachers don't work for me). So, I didn't do much work, didn't learn stuff and got mostly passes, but nothing great. Now, some of this can be atributed to the fact that just dislike the classroom setting and loath the lecture hall - school isn't really my thing. The fact that I only actually intrinsicaly enjoyed one of my courses for itself was not a good sign. I think a lot of it is just that the program wasn't what I wanted to do after all. I keep thinking that I need to go back to school at some point, but can never think of what I would want to do.
A few weeks back, while getting a ride home from dinner at my parent's with a friend of the family's, she metioned that maybe I should think of going into library science (I think it's actually called information science or something - basically librarian stuff). Now this seemed to me to just be another person saying that "I should think of their field, it's really quite fascinating, don'cha think". But the more I think about it, the more it occurs that this could actually be a pretty decent match. Enough that I may do a little researchin into what is involved in the whole program and all.
Who knows. Could be cool.

.. well, maybe not cool as such, but interesting at least.


  1. i agree...i think that is a good match...

    to your face!!! no but really it is good..dammit

  2. dude, "to your face" is not a grammatically good match to "i think it's a good match".
    put that in your pipe and smoke it.
    or, y'know, don't.
    either way
