I was lucky. Both my parents had college degrees-my dad in mathematics and my mom in social work-I was often on the university campus with them and sometimes in class. College was a no brainer for me.
I shouldn't say I regret it, because regret is such a negative word but I probably would have loved uni.
I was also very impatient and probably ADHD and so sitting and learning was a tough call for me. I had real difficulty focusing on a textbook for extended periods. I was the guy reading guitar magazine in science classes in high school.
I also married young. I was 21 when I got married.
But I do love learning and I am a bit jealous of people who were able to get to uni and go through that experience.
I'm pretty sure I would have driven all the namisgrs crazy in university too.
Nothing like attending university in the 80s. Those days are long gone now it seems to be all brainwashing. Even in the sciences, historically immune to politics they feed that global warming crap.
looking back, do you think you should have done something different with your life? seems like you had potential to do big things in another field
We all have things we'd do differently.
One of my big regrets is not getting into higher education and learning engineering. Mechanical engineering is probably my one true love. I love trying to understand how things work and my son is wired the same way. All of my kids are actually. Thankfully they are pursuing education.
My parents were never into higher education. They were raised as blue collar workers and they never pushed it on us either.
I think my oldest daughter is actually the 1st of my bloodline to get a university degree.
Do you have anything you wish you'd pursued or would have done differently?
Too many, but my parents also were the same about education
well going back when I need to medicate for my anxiety (panic attack) is only on planes, I never experienced the need to do it during the pandemic (i didn't fly) so I never got to the point that I needed to medicate
I believe you can overcome many mental illness issues (like anxiety) without pharmaceuticals.
But people aren't being taught how to do the work.
In fact, the business model of medicine is "for profit" meaning, it's not in their best interest to heal you. It's in their best interest to keep you ill.
I'm sure there are ways to fly without my medication, i take it more for everyone else sake, I don't want to cause a scene or do something in that moment that might risk harm to me or someone else. Logic goes out the window. it's quite terrifying for me. maybe one day I'll get back to flying without it.
I have over time reduced the dosage and only take it on flights of 4 hours or greater
Maybe it's a Canadian thing but I personally never heard of "logic awards".
And it shows.
So let me get your thinking on this. Because I'm not a logical person like you are ( award winning! ), this is the reason I have never heard of a "logic award" in grade school and neither has anyone else I know heard of this, including a couple Canadian friends?
Shouts are temporary, real-time communication and eventually scroll-off.
kav: One of the worst side effects of covid pandemic is Roy just wont STFU abt it. Chinese lab workers really screwed us over here on the boards. Plus the fact he keeps saying the same thing over and over. Squack!!! Polly wanna cracker!!!
