Well it's not incorrect to me there is no difference i did say "I think" as in to me there is no difference not that it's a universal fact.

So people that made advancements in technology and medicine who were 40-50 should have died at 20 instead because they may at 90.
Yeah.

Curious what others want to do i'm studying programming in university in the next year or two (Depending if i get accepted in first try)

I plan to make my work my life and work at work and when i get home work on other projects for work to get more done sleep then repeat.

My lifestyle is going to suck and be draining and awful but what's the point of wasting time having fun and socializing and partying etc... i mean you have limited time in your life it makes more sense to make the most of it which is why i plan on spending the majority of my time practicing and learning ....which i started to do this year when i'm not having breaks which i need to say goodbye to eventually.

I want to leave something behind when i die but i don't want children because i have personal reasons to not want children i want to create something that i can customize and form.

What do you guys want to do how do you want to live your life and go about your career?


I am almost done with my career, I am almost at the last position I can be in. I believe there are only 1 or 2 positions for me after this.
Start hardcore don't worry about socializing, kick start that career first. The social will come with money and affluence. I didn't have a desire to have children until after I fell in love and got married. The desire did eventually come after I got married. Glad I had kids. If you have a fair amount on the ball forget programming, they're a dime a dozen. Try engineering, it's tough to get a good electrical engineer. They pay is crazy good. Stay your path you are planning and thinking correctly. Steel your resolve and get it done. Glad to see youth doing it the right way.



Personally i would stay in programming (unless i got alot of free time with an engineer job) because i have always wanted to help program games which was my main point in wanting to learn how to program since i was like 9


Actually programming is a subset of electrical engineering. Just getting an engineering degree means they'll hire you faster into programming. About a 20% of my engineering buddies work in software. Example, fiduciary companies hire EEs because they know EEs crunch numbers and formulas fast. Companies use engineers to make game physics engines. The engineers in programming take the math modeling to another level. Like I said a code monkey is just that , a code monkey. An engineer winds up making the engines and tools used to make the code and tools. When I was younger I used to write Assembler for chip sets (typical EE job) when I got older financial and game companies were snapping up engineers like cookies, due to the high math and analytical ability. Being a code monkey is ok, but with your ambition you want to shoot higher and better. You can make games, but on a higher level.



Well i'm terrible with Mathematics as it is i'm just good enough to just get into programming and university so i don't know if i could ever become intelligent enough to be an engineer...but i would like to try if that is possible.

I'm trying to improve my mathematic skill at the moment but i still have trouble with some basic equations at times and i haven't even reached calculus...

oh well i will try if i can't make it to that level then that's ok but if i can try that's something i guess,.




Are you kidding? I was terrible at math! I really had to study hard and then some more. Here's the deal...It....was....all...worth...it. I am not the sharpest tack in the box. But I do know how to work and study hard, and that was better than being smart and unmotivated. You sound motivated, this is just like Naruto, work hard to unlock what's inside. You can do it!!


I hope that is the case ^^

also what would a engineer be classed as in I.T because im looking up the payscale site my country has to show the average wage and

software engineer/programmer are listed as the same job paying 71k a year (which is what i was going for originally anyhow)

I live in Australia so the pay seems high.

71k would be a dream i live on 16k a year and need to rely on my parents for financial support for now atleast >.<


Any kind of Network architect or engineer makes $70K ~$150K


That's what I want to strive towards then 70k whilst living in an apartment (dream housing and it's cheap) would make life great since I would only need about 30k a year to live on

Becoming a teacher at any level in Ontario is HARD. My sister has a masters in mathematics, and had to move to Alberta just to get her foot in the door as a contract teacher (not even in her field). Finally they hired her on full time as a high school math teacher.

I guess I'm pretty happy with what I'm doing right now. There would only be two courses of action for me if I decided to do something else: apply for management if the opportunity presents itself, especially in my field of expertise; or go back to school (preferably in a trade).

Lol, yeah I heard, Canada itself has an over supply of teachers which is so stupid. They graduate too many kids nowdays with BEd and they're going into a work force without any jobs. Also, it's switching over to contracts.

Mmm, I think having MA (MSc), scares off employers since school boards don't want to paid them more then again I don't know.

I heard getting a job in trades is very difficult and most employers want kids with university degree nowdays.

Yeah its quite the double-edged sword isn't it? Spend all the money and time on an education to try to get into your chosen field and there's no jobs... try to get into anything else, and you're over-qualified. Bah.

Depends on the trade and where you're planning on working. Thankfully where I live there is always somewhat of a need for it, especially in the trade I would consider taking (which is Instrumentation). I wouldn't consider it unless something about my situation forced a drastic change. If it ain't broke...

Yeah, I'm not happy with the Ontario budget changes too. I won't be graduating until 2018 so the new system really fks me over. I haven't gotten to that point, I'm praying the economy rebounds or the baby boomers retire. University in Canada is terrible expensive and I'm not sure why does the cost of tuition went up rapidly from 1990s to 2010s, inflation?

Ah true, I know welding suffered. Hahaha, hopefully not. There seems to be always need for that trade so I'm sure you'd be fine. Thanks for advice though!

(I might have to consider getting re-educated lol)
