I'm here at UCSD. Still. Haven't gotten kicked out yet
I still feel clueless with some social things. This is OK. I will figure them out with time. I may have some anxiety issues, and be somewhat conservative, but I'm not awkward in most situations and get along quite fine. I'll ignore that.
My main source of thought has been career path and such. CS is sort of interesting, but I really dont want to do software dev. Maybe there will be an idea I will latch onto and enjoy, and I am admittedly only half a quarter into my CS education, but I've gone to society meetings and the things that drive success bother me. Write a ton of code, learn new languages in spare time. Join CS orgs. Get really focused on one thing. Don't branch out and have many areas of interest.. Maybe that will appeal me at some point but certainly not now. While the applications of CS are interesting I'm by far more interested in other fields and how CS can apply to them, not primarily CS. I'm sort of in it because I figured it would keep options open, and would pay well. My goals are really just to make enough to travel and have a job that is interesting. I dont know how I want to get there.
I do a lot of reading and find a lot of fields interesting. I just found one I hate (ethnic studies) but apart from that I read a ton and enjoy a lot of it. Especially academic works in those areas (IR/IS/Econ/Polysci/History)
Blurgh. Not sure how to weight competing thoughts.
