  1. I saw a story of a case today where a man was talking about the divorce of his parents and how he was asked which parent he would prefer to go with to settle custody. I'm not sure how common the practice is. Perhaps you have actually gone through it, or perhaps your parents never divorced but they had a rocky relationship that could have led to you being in this situation. If neither of those, then just imagine a different scenario in which your parents were getting a divorce and you had to choose one of them. I'm curious how each of you have or would have reacted in this situation. Who would you choose, why and how do you think your life would be different with your chosen parent compared to the other or both? Let's assume an age at the time of the event of around 12-14.
  2. The good news is that tech doesn't care much about your grades or degrees, they care about your skills. The bad news is, you don't seem to have the skills either. However, if you have the learning ability, my recommendation is to apply to as many internships as you can. They usually also include logic tests where you might do well, even if you fail the tech test. Companies prefer to hire interns who have potential over interns who just have knowledge. Tbh, it doesn't sound like a coding job is the right fit for you, but as mentioned above, that's not the only tech job there is. You can try for qa, business analyst or project management.

      Haha, thanks, I just discovered snapchat filters :p 

  4. I love your avatar :D

  5. Very likely, but I'd be weary of putting all the blame on teachers or other external agents. There comes a point when people have to take at least part of the responsibility for their perceptions, whether true or not. And given that this field requires creating original output, it would seem that being autonomous and showing initiative/independent thought would be essential qualities to be successful.
  6. I am reading a lot into seeing people in their mid-twenties or older make the claim that their work is stressful because they have less teacher guidance. That to me shows twisted expectations and perceptions of work.
  7. They have to move fast when they find good people, because they know you could have a dozen offers in a minute.
  8. It's not something specific to grad students, just happened to be the topic in this thread. Almost everyone is under the impression their work is the most difficult and important work there is, and they are underappreciated. When considering there are jobs that require people to literally have others' lives in their hands or make decisions that will affect the livelihoods of many others, grad school certainly does not rank very high on the list of stressful occupations. To claim that it does is just Dunning-Kruger effect at work, which, again, is not remotely specific to grad students.
  9. Double suicide serious.
  10. I meant we can't control who we're attracted to. We can't just go 'oh, this person's bad for me/doesn't want me back, I'll stop wanting them now'. So trouble happens instead.
  11. I don't think it's any different here than in any other space. I'd say the main reason is that we are dealing with very basic, very powerful human needs and desires for intimacy and connection. Add to that the complete lack of control we have over attraction, and you have a recipe for conflict, frustration and irrationality. No doubt there is merit to the views that criticize "modern dating" which is characterized by increased superficiality of relationships, but it's difficult to say whether that is specific to recent generations or simply allowed to manifest more now than before.
  12. Of course not. It's just a super special place for super special people that normal mortals can't understand and appreciate. Yeah, seems like I'd fit right in with all the other mean teachers.
  13. I'm surprised at the answers here. Does it actually take as long as grad school for some people to reach a level of maturity where they don't expect someone to hold their hand? Pretty amazing they manage to function as adults at all.
