Hot damn. I just graddiated. You must call me Master now. You too may obtain this exalted title for no less than the trifling fee of some thirty thousand dollars. Master of Psychology. I am a little high on a little beer and a little chocolate and a lot of love from my associates at the mental health clinic where I have been interning for the last year. Now I am degreed and after breathing for about three weeks, I am going to find agency work and get licensure as well as begin building a private practice. I love what I am choosing to do with my life today. Life is good. Playing some of the new and improved Nethergate in the meantime is also on the menu.

But enough about me. I am wondering about you. What is your station in life right now? What are you doing with yourself? Are you in school? What do you see yourself doing in the future? If you were to fulfill your biggest, most unlikely dream for yourself, what would it be?

-S-

P.S. Bonus points to the first person who can tell me the source of inspiration for the title of this thread.

I've applied to several grad schools for political science and am checking their status 5 times a day.

Let's see: I'm in in my second year of undergrad, taking CompSci. Right now, it looks like I'll do my Masters after I get my degree. And does working on a project called 'ScriptEase' this summer count as a life-fulfilling dream? :)

Tomorrow, I'll be picking up a program planner and be facing the gnarly problem of picking Arts options. A course in cognitive psychology would be interesting. I could take a soft option like one of the philosophy courses on computers and culture, but I don't think I'd like that. Maybe Classical Greek? I dunno.

I shiver in my boots knowing that you will be giving advice to people and getting paid to do it. :P

Currently mother of four who soon needs a part-time job. Will probably end up behind the counter of a local establishment asking 'would you like fries with that?'

If I could do anything for my vocation, today I'd choose to own and opperate a rollerskating rink. My visit to one on Tuesday led me down a memory lane overflowing with good vibes and great times. I love to listen to music, I love to rollerskate, I love to let other people give me their money... it'd be great! And I'd make it better then that stupid Skate America we have here, tell you what. No scooters on my floor, nooo sir. No regular shoes either, getting everything all scuffed up...

Sophmore, undergrad, my college has so many damned core classes I've take a whole two classes for my actual major so far. That's one course a year. Bastards.

Doing my bachelor's seminar paper right now, then I'm going for the master's degree. Should take a little over a year if I'm lucky/work hard enough.

Fourth-year undergrad, double-majoring in Classical Languages and Astrophysics. Much farther along on the classics than the astro. Probably just tanked my Thermo test.

After I get my B.A., I will leave all this behind and lend my screeching vocals to a power metal band. :cool:

Finished a Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Honours) in Zoology last year; having decided that I'm better at writing about science than actually doing it, am now doing a graduate certificate in history and philosophy of science and aiming for a Masters in science communication. Hoping to end up writing for New Scientist or something like that.

Congratulations on your degree.

I'm currently a 2L in law school focusing on tax law, and looking for summer work. The dreams for the future, they be uncertain, though they definitely involve living in a cheaper real estate market.

The title was inspired by Boost Mobile, possibly via the relevant ATHF episode.

Congrats Synergy...

I also have my degree in psychology, but it was so long ago.

As soon as I got out of school I took a job as a programmer (you could do that back then - get a job that had nothing to do with your degree), and I've been doing it ever since (almost 20 years now).

I'm now the director of IT at a company in Ohio, and I couldn't be happier. I also fulfilled my biggest most unlikely dream (as you asked about) last year by becoming a published author in the PnP RPG industry.

So, along with my great family, I'm living the life I love... is it perfect, no... but if it were it would be boring.

Cheers,
narpet

Congratualtions Synergy. If I ever have mental health problems, I will go to you for counceling. But eh... it will be free of charge, wouldn't it?

I'm still in secondary school, in the fifth grade of a total of six. next year I hope to pass my exams, so I can go to uni and start with the study I alwasy wanted to do: biology.

Graduation rocks. I graduated in December after 5 and half years with a B.A. in Social Sciences with an emphasis in history no less. During my many years in school I did many things from baling hay, working at teh Waaalllmart, Radio work, Television work, factory work, and computer support. Now I'm employed at a small private college in Iowa as a Technical Support Technician living it up. It is likely I will go back for a masters degree of some sort in a few years as one of my benifits is free classes at the college here. I miss the sudo-carefree college lifestyle sometimes but then I remember now I can afford to buy good beer and I fagetabawtit.

Congratulations!

Currently, I'm doing nothing. I'm searching for a job, although like Jewels, it won't be anything fancy.

I'll continue writing, and hopefully get published, although I have accepted that I will probably remain despearately poor for the rest of my life.

Oh, and I'm looking at university courses too - English still looks pretty cool.

I graduated in maths six years ago; my job in finance involves numbers and formulas and macros and stuff. Put that way it sounds sort of inevitable; but it didn't have to be this way. Every time I had to make a decision I just went for whatever sounded the most interesting of the opportunities on offer. It seems to have worked out.

Look at all this graduatin'!

Graduated two years ago with a fairly irrelevant BA in Linguistics. I work full time at a residential treatment facility, where I do various therapeutic work with severely emotionally disturbed children and adolescents.

Future plans: very tentatively, go to grad school for a PsyD and do family therapy.

Second year in my undergraduate education, majoring in Mathematics and Philosophy. I'm excited because I was recently admitted to study math in Budapest next fall. After I graduate? Who knows. Right now I'm thinking grad school for math.

Congrats on the degree!

I am currently a freshman at Albert M. Lowry High School. I wish to attend UNR (University of Nevada Reno) and get a degree in teaching, chemistry, and perhaps business. I am not completely sure, but I think I'll settle for a bachelor's degree. I don't think money is much of a problem; scholarships are abundant in our community and the state of Nevada offers something called the Millenoum Scholarship, which I easily qualify for.

Cute, Aran. Not to worry. I'm willing to take as good as I give.

Sarcastaphilia, I don't think I've noted any particular wordplay on your part, just a torrential deluge of them in general. Perhaps you would like to ponder the aesthetic of less is more. Quality over quantity. Ah so. :P

I do realize how giddily exciting is just to see oneself in print here.

It's my first year at ASU and I'm going for my BS in Biochemistry. But that all depends on my ability to learn calculus,which isn't looking so right now. I might be forced to switch to Molecular Biology. :/

After that, I plan to go to grad school. I don't know why. If anyone here has a lighthouse, I'll come by and visit.

I'm six and a half weeks away from finishing my third year in college. I'm currently working on a BS in Business Accounting and trying to decide whether to go for a MBA or a MBT. In which case I'd graduate on '09 rather than '08.
