What is/was/will be your college major? posted 20 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Taliesin, Peralogue

Larry, I think I've heard of the Thompson.... probably in my Brit Lit class last year.

And, I hate selling books back. The last two semesters, I refused to sell any back, after regretting some of what I sold back my first year... maybe a balance between the two extremes would be better, but it's hard to know what I'll wish I had later.... especially when I keep changing and adding majors and minors.... view post

Wow Larry, that's still a lot. I desperately need shelf space though <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> my entire bookshelf is overflowing onto the floor. 60-70 is still a ton of books, I envy you! <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P --> view post

Well, I had 9 bookshelves full of books, plus an extra 150-200 stacked on a closet shelf or on top of the other bookcases. Now I'm probably over a 1000 books and probably need to rent a Storage unit somewhere <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> view post

I did film and Media studies, my bros is now an art teacher and my sister has gone on to do an MA in English Lit.

As to book shelves gave up after 3 of them and used them to build a book wall, lol only way I could stack them all and it doesnt half keep the room warm. view post

haha dros, I certainly could use two more bookshelves! view post

My parents didn't like my recent comment that I could use another bookshelf..... view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 20 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Grantaire, Moderator

Well I realllly need one Taliesin, my current bookshelf is quite tall, has maybe 7 shelves, and they're all full (as in, I have two rows shelved on each, and many on top of them). It's starting to overflow onto my floor. Not a good situation <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 20 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Taliesin, Peralogue

My situation isn't quite that bad, but close... and I have a huge box full of books in my closet as well. view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 20 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Grantaire, Moderator

Yeah...another problem being that I doubt I could fit another bookshelf in my room. Oh well, maybe I should just pile them up under my bed and in the closet <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post

All this talk of bookshelves is making me want to reorganize my books, as they are all just randomly placed at the moment.... Typically when I try to clean my room, all I end up doing is moving around the books. Shows where my priorities lie, huh? view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 20 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Grantaire, Moderator

Ditto. Considering how randomly scattered they typically are, the last time I 'cleaned' my room ended up being me organizing my books onto different shelves. One for fantasy, one for sci-fi, one for science, philosophy, and reference, one for random fiction, etc. view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 20 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Taliesin, Peralogue

Yeah, my last organizing was me clearing off the remaining shelf that didn't have books on it, and proceeding to fill it and more, since I had two long shelves' worth of books at school which I had to somehow fit in my room here.... But now I feel motivated - I think I actually am going to reorganize these books, and then my CD collection.... view post

Laziness is a great motivator <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post

I find procrastination to be the greatest motivator - I am amazed at how much work I can make myself do when it comes down to the last minute.... too bad I can't channel that energy and get work done earlier.... view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 20 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Grantaire, Moderator

Yeah...procrastination works suprisingly well. Gotta love writing research papers 5 hours before they're due <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post

Hehe nice subject derailing there <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Well due to being a professional slacker I still haven't gotten a degree. And since our school/university system is a bit different then the american I don't know exactly what to call everything. But Im starting a university program in Computer science this fall, I think it gives a masters in computer science and a batchelors in maths but im not sure.
One big advantage with the subjects is I probably wont need 10 bookshelves to keep my studybooks <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post

I have a Bacherlor's Degree in Computer Science. Someday I'll probably go and get a Masters in Instructional Technology.

Just wish I could redo my degree but I cant afford it. Too skint, still in a few years time I may just do that and get one in computer sciences just so the programming Ive taught myself will be recognised. view post

That's cool Orion. I have been a sound tech all through middle and high school, as well as some private paid gigs. It's a sweet job, though not what I'm persuing. view post

yeah, im just hoping it will be able to support my extravagent life style. view post

Don't know about that. You better sign on with someone big.

What equipment do you prefer? view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 29 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Orion_metalhead, Auditor

well, right now for my own music i use either an Ibanez bass or a Fender Bass with a 100 watt Ampeg amp. im sure of the model numbers.

when i get a new laptop for college im gonna buy ProTools for recording since thats what most of the professionals use. though im fooling around with simple analog equiptment for my own band. view post

Look into Samplitude. I use it for all of my recording. What sort of mixers and mics do you use? view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 04 August 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Alric, Auditor

I currently have a BA in History and English. For History, I focused primarily on Roman and Early English history. With my current job, I get free tuition at the University of Minnesota, which will help in my plan to eventually get a MA and phD. Some day, I'd like to teach at a college level. Of course, I'd also like to be a writer, which I am working toward on a daily basis. I'm particularily drawn to writing historical fiction and historical fantasy, which shouldn't come as a big suprise. view post

I would like to study history, it can be very interesting!! view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 16 August 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Temeraire, Commoner

I'll be doing a combined honors major in Early Modern Studies and History. I''m not sure which period however, perhaps medieval and then revolutionary europe just to understand the full cause/effect of the Early Modern Period. Then it's onto the MA and PhD side of things immediatley after. I'll be shaking my head at my ambition soon enough. view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 17 August 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Aldarion, Sorcerer-of-Rank

Early Modern, huh? I did a dual focus concentration in Early Modern and 20th Century Cultural/Religious History for my MA (but no thesis) and if you want, I can recommend some wonderful books for that period. Nice to learn that there are more of us history major/grad student types around <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 17 August 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by drosdelnoch, Subdidact

The problem with history is that when I was at school we only got taught stuff that I thought was boring such as the industrial revolution. Now if I'd had Billy Connolly teaching me history I'd probably have stuck with it. I just like the way he conveys historical info to the viewer of his World Tour series. view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 18 August 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Temeraire, Commoner

The Industrial Revolution, boring!? My friend, there can be nothing more exciting than squalid working conditions, sweaty 19th century people and the possibility of losing a limb to a cotton loom of death! But seriously... try Mark Williams' series on the industrial revolution. Very engaging.
Aldarion, it's nice indeed to hear of a fellow EMS scholar. I'd love any recommendations you could give me! view post
